I love TV. Have I mentioned that before? I love TV, so my poor Tivo is always working on overtime. Given my love of TV, I of course tuned in to watch the Emmy awards to see which of my favorite shows and actors won. As with any Hollywood awards show, it’s always enjoyable to check out the fashion on the red carpet not just because it’s fun to look at, but also because it can be great inspiration for your wedding or event. Below are some of my favorites from this year’s Emmy awards and my picks for some Emmy fashion wedding inspiration for your wedding attire or wedding design.
First up is Allison Williams in this beautiful green dress. This has an almost art deco feel and I love the shapes it’s creating on her body. The green color is also a bit unexpected, which I love. You can think about using these art deco shapes in your wedding or even this style of dress for your wedding gown.
Lucy Liu’s silver dress screams party to me. It’s fun, sexy, bright and different. Once again, I love the shapes the dress creates and how it curves with her body. The geometric shapes could totally be used for your wedding and why not bring in a little silver sparkle?
Jenna Malone’s burgundy color dress with its asymmetrical crossing lines is so much fun. There were other burgundy dresses on the red carpet that night, but this one stood out to me. It’s edgy and more modern. You can take this concept and bring into your wedding design with the lines, angles and edginess.
This was one of my absolute favorites of the night and since I also just finished watching Homeland I’m totally a fan of Morena’s. The dress is soft, yet structured and sexy, but not too much (although for a wedding it might be). The color is amazing as well. Gray is a highly underappreciated color and I think this dress proves how awesome it can be. Consider using gray in your wedding or have your bridesmaids wear gray with soft details.
If you noticed, all of my Emmy fashion wedding inspiration picks seem to be running a theme which revolves around shapes. These dresses don’t have patterns or prints, but there is a definitely a geometric quality to all of them. The first reads in triangles, the second in circles, the third in rectangles and trapezoids and the forth in a fan shape (both angular and rounded). I’m really loving this look and I currently have a bride I’m working with that has a wedding gown which fits perfectly with these dresses. The geometric style is fun and what’s great is that it can be translated to many different aesthetics. Just look at the four women above who have completely different styles! You could totally take this concept and apply it to your wedding design or wedding attire. The possibilities are endless!
