No matter the reason, the following style savvy divas brought an unexpected, fresh take to the Emmys red carpet, and did so in flawless fashion!

How to Wear Red From Head to Toe

Sunday night’s Emmy awards reminded viewers what Hollywood is all about – making a bold statement on the red carpet! Television’s biggest stars did not disappoint, with leading ladies taking center stage in the hottest color of the season, red! While red may seem too daring for some, this is definitely the time of year for fashionistas to play with this striking and confident shade. Let the best dressed from the Emmys red carpet inspire you to experiment with this sexy color from head to toe!

Red Lips

Christina Hendricks and Kerry Washington rocked classic red lips on the Emmys red carpet, reminiscent of old Hollywood glamour! If you want to try the red trend but don’t want to go overboard, start by adding a hint of color with beauty products. Red lips are chic and timeless, and a pretty look for day or night. Try a matte red lip instead of a glossy sheen for a more sophisticated feel. If you have fairer skin like Christina, opt for a blue-based red lipstick, while deep reds complement darker complexions like Kerry’s.

Revlon’s ColorBurst Lipstick in True Red is the perfect shade for everyone, an inexpensive buy at just $8.99 at drugstores nationwide, or $6.28 on Amazon.com

Crimson hued nails and toes are also a fun way to play with color. Rich tones of ruby, burgundy, and tomato are big nail color trends for fall. Just make sure to keep your nails short and manicured to avoid looking tacky!

Red Accessories

Zooey Deschanel and Kaley Cuoco added some unexpected pops of color to their Emmy looks by wearing statement red accessories! Every fashionista has a collection of belts, but nothing says stylish trendsetter than a sexy red sash. Look for a thin to medium width belt in all the materials and textures of the season. From classic patent and luxurious leather, to a simple ribbon style like Zooey’s, a red belt complements fall’s textured pants, printed tops, and refined shapes. Check out ShopStyle.com for 29 sizzling styles under $25!

To really spice up your LBD, add a bold platform pump and clutch like Kaley. Red shoes and handbags are definite outfit makers, and this season there are a ton of updated versions to transform your look. A subtle round toe pump or leather stiletto are ideal for day, while a seductive reptile heeled sandal would be great for a night on the town. These patent rubies are just $79 on Zappos.com!

Ladylike purses are also a major trend for fall. Look for structured shapes and simple hardware, like on the Mayfair Satchel from Handbag Heaven ($40.95).

Kate Winslet and Lea Michele stole the show on the red carpet, wearing dramatic red gowns that showed off their best assets! Take a cue from these lovely ladies and mix some red items in to your wardrobe this fall.

If you want to make a statement, try a sexy, body hugging red dress. Look for styles that cover up and don’t show too much skin, like a wrap or sheath. Both are fit for the office or a first date! Macy’s.com has a good selection of affordable red dresses, like this NY Collection Wrap Dress for just $48! And remember, it’s important to balance your look when wearing such a powerful hue, so keep your accessories and makeup simple.

If you want a more sophisticated look, experiment with the season’s skirts and tops. Mix it up with different shades of crimson for a fashion forward feel, like pairing a burgundy button up with a cardinal red skirt. This Halogen Pencil Skirt from Nordstrom.com is a versatile layering piece, and it’s only $59! Adding these fiery pieces to your closet will definitely make you feel beautiful and confident as the weather cools off this fall!

Emmys 2010 Fashion Preview

With the 62nd Primetime Emmy Awards this Sunday, we kick off another fabulous and fashionable award season in Hollywood!  The hottest television stars of the moment will definitely be walking the red carpet in style.  Will the ladies of Mad Men be the belles of the ball?  Will funny gal Tina Fey take home another golden statue?  While we can probably assume both, here’s a fashion preview of what we can absolutely expect to see on the Emmy red carpet!

Red Carpet Trend #1- Metallics

Metallics are always a go to trend for the red carpet, and at the Emmys, expect the look from head to toe.  Dazzling metallic gowns came down the Fall runways from designers like Armani Prive & Marchesa.  This sexy and sophisticated gown would be beautiful on Modern Family star, Sofia Vergera.  Metallic heels will also be popular this Sunday, from classic strappy heels to bold cage strap sandals. 

Red Carpet Trend #2– Feminine Details

Soft, sweet and feminine looks dominated the Spring and Summer runways, from Valentino to Dior.  Consider the Emmy red carpet to be an extension of these runways, because romantic inspired gowns and accessories are going to be everywhere!  This plum colored gown with cascading ruffles would look beautiful on Mad Men star January Jones.  These peep toe pumps with a dainty rosette would complete the look in one simple step.

Red Carpet Trend #3– Color

While black is always a red carpet staple, expect to see Emmy’s leading ladies going bold with color!  Jewel tones will take center stage, from elegant purples to bright blues.  And of course, you can’t go wrong with classic red!  This vivid cobalt dress with embellished shoulder details would look amazing on Glee star, Lea Michelle.  For those who prefer to go bold in statement shoes, these platform pumps would add drama to any outfit!
