The 65th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards aired Sunday night, bringing us a red carpet swarming with new jewelry and fashion trends as well as some expected disappointments. Read on for the top five trends of the night.
Normally the morning after, we dish on the shoulder-sweeping earrings or Wonder Woman cuffs that have made frequent red carpet appearances over the years. As those trends either take a back seat or simply become the norm, we welcome some new and exciting trends to add to your jewelry box.
Finally! Hollywood has put a ring on it! And in the form of big, chunky diamonds and gemstone cocktail rings. Primetime TV’s finest rocked some cocktail rings that were large and in charge.
Zooey Deschanel matched an icy blue J. Mendel gown with an equally icy blue tourmaline ring by Chanel.
Modern Family’s Sarah Hyland was head-to-toe in emerald, 2013’s Color of the Year, pairing a green Caroline Herrera gown with Lorraine Schwartz green bling.
E! Red Carpet Hostess Guiliana Rancic rocked a $1 million diamond ring by Forevermark that would make even a Kardashian jealous!
Jessica Lange wore a black Escada gown accompanied with a Martin Katz cocktail ring. Kata Mara was sans any jewelry except for a large Irene Neuwirth ring that matched her J. Mendel gown. Other cocktail ring sitings included Sofia Vergara (obvi), Jane Krakowski, Christina Hendricks, Taylor Schilling
Whether it was the jewels or the gown, emerald was certainly the color of the night (Appropriate since the color gods at Pantone named it Color of the Year for 2013).
Standout looks that had us green with envy were Sarah Hyland (as mentioned before), Anna Chlumsky in Badgley Mischka, Lena Dunham in Prada, and Nancy O’dell.
Christina Hendricks looked ravishing, pairing a black down with emerald earrings and cocktail ring.
Sofia Vergara brought the bling once again with a Vera Wang gown paired with Multi color earrings and green ring by Lorraine Schwartz.
Anna Faris wore a cheerful yellow gown with a Fred Leighton green lizard brooch crawling up her back. Brooke Burke wore eye-catching jade earrings by Katerina Maxine.
Yellow gold statement pieces continue to trend on the red carpet and are a perfect accessory for the fall.
Girls actress Allison Williams paired a blue Ralph Lauren gown with glowing Fred Leighton gold jewels.
Taylor Schilling rocked a white Thakoon paired with Jorge Adeler jewels, including a citrine and gold cocktail ring.
Nashville’s Connie Britton paired a blue and gold Naeem Khan number with gold stacked bangles by Cathy Waterman.
Padma Lakshmi wore huge gold earrings and gold cuff by Robert Lee Morris that paired well with her Kaufman Franco gown.
Other golden jewelry moments include Cobie Smulders (who couldn’t remember who designer her jewelry – YIKES), Jane Lynch and Merritt Wever.
Ladies in Red
While not a jewelry trend, we do pay respect to red carpet color trends that could inspire your own jewelry box collection.
Red frocks included Sofia Vergara, Morena Baccarin, Carla Gugino in Georges Chakra, Heidi Klum in Versace, Kaley Cuoco in Vera Wang, Kelly Osbourne in Jenny Packham, Linda Cardinelli in Donna Karan Atelier and more.
Babes in Blue
Every shade of blue made an appearance on the red carpet, capping off a month of sapphire birthstone bliss.
Tina Fey left black at home and rocked a bright blue Narciso Rodriguez gown. Deschanel sisters, Emily and Zooey both wore light pastel gowns by Houghton and J. Mendel, respectively. Jane Krakowski, Jessica Pare, Allison Williams, Maria Menounos, and Guiliana Rancic also wore standout blue gowns.
And leave it to a country girl to be the only notable celeb rocking a diamond necklace. Carrie Underwood paired a purple Romona Keveza gown with Johnathon Arndt jewels. Guess we will have to wait for the Country Music Awards for our next diamond necklace moment. Oh well.
