The Emmys: who wore what?

The hottest of the hottest television and movie stars roamed Hollywood on Sunday 23rd, as the 64th annual Primetime Emmy Awards took place at the Nokia Theatre.

Never mind who won what and who went with who, the real question is, who were the best dressed ladies on the red carpet?

Mad Men actress, January Jones, looked fierce in a gorgeous Zac Posen black gown, with black peep-toe heels and a black clutch. Now that is how to rock the goth look on the red-carpet, without looking too scary.

Zac Posen dresses were also worn by several others. For example Kiernan Shipka, the 12 year old actress from Mad Men, who wore a shimmering, below the knee length dress, which was perfect for her age as she didn’t look too old. Whereas reality star, turned fashion designer, actress and singer, Kelly Osbourne, also went for the goth look like January Jones, in a slim-fit gown, teamed with a black clutch.

Zooey Deschanel and Heidi Klum were both wearing the same shade dress, but completely different styles. Deschanel wore a sweetheart neckline and tiered tulle gown, custom made for her by Reem Acra. Whereas Klum wore a thigh-high slit dress, with a low neckline. Even though I never usually like these cut dresses, I must admit, Klum looked stunning!

There was only one Louis Vuitton dress on the red carpet, and it was worn by Downtown Abbey actress and Emmy nominee,  Michelle Dockery. The cobalt gown looked flawless on the British actress.

Pregnant Claire Danes walked the red carpet and later collected her award for her role in Homeland, in a yellow Lanvin gown, worn with gold bangles and Barbara Bui sandals.

When Vuitton Met Kusama

Since Yayoi Kusama and Marc Jacobs (Louis Vuitton creative director) first met in her Tokyo studio in 2006, the long-awaited collaboration the fashion and art industry have desired for is finally here. The collection first hit stores yesterday, as it was unveiled at the Louis Vuitton store on Fifth Avenue in New York City. The collaboration between the 83 year old Japanese designer, Yayoi Kusama and Louis Vuitton has quickly become the talk around town, especially after the recent exhibition of Kusama’s work at the Tate Modern in London, which will open at the Whitney Museum of American Art later this week.

So what can be expected from the ‘Infinitely Kusama’ range? Kusamas trademark polka-dots of course! They can be found in everything and anything in the collaboration with Louis Vuitton, you can take your pick from dresses, leggings, coats, jewellery, bags, shoes, sunglasses and in various bright colours! If you are worrying about spending the money on something you may only wear a few times, there is no need to panic, as there’s also a fabulous raincoat which can be worn throughout the year (especially in this British weather!) In my opinion, there is nothing more fun than timeless polka-dots. It takes you right back to the 50’s, but with a fresh take.

What did Marc Jacobs, who has a love for art as well as fashion, have to say about working with the legendary artist Kusama? “It’s very much a true collaboration…there’s the Vuitton monogram and the spots of Kusama. Both of them are endless, timeless and forever.”

But be aware, you have to be quick! The limited-edition collection is only available in a few spots around the world for now—New York, Paris and the second collection will hit London’s Selfridges on the 24th August. What are you waiting for?
