It’s that time of year again when my SKY planner goes beserk recording all programmes relating to the Emmy Awards (mostly on channel E!). I can’t help myself, I’m always just so curious to see what women who have the money to buy and wear any dress in the whole wide world finally decide to pick.
This year I was both disappointed and in awe at some of the styles. It seems pale colours were making a big impact on the red carpet. I am very undecided about this trend as I believe these very pale tones are extremely hard to wear unless you have a golden/tan complexion OR completely unblemished perfect ivory skin. Everyone from Mad Men’s January Jones to Julie Bowen from Modern Family to DWTS Julianne Hough, these female celebrities donned the palest of pinks, nudes and various shades of white at this year’s big night for TV!
I absolutely detest the dress on January Jones for so many reasons! I feel the bustline looks very awkward and cuts her bust off in a really weird place that actually makes the dress look uncomfortable to wear! Plus this girl is tiny so why have a dress that makes her look like she has pockets of flab under each arm?? I also don’t like the fabric that Givenchy has used as it reminds me of crochet squares my mum used to make and that panel along the bottom of the dress is horrendous. Apparently, this dress was specially made for January?? And as she told a reporter at the event and I quote .. “They made this for me so I had to pick it.” To be honest, if I had been January I would have thanked Givenchy for the thought but politely declined the offer of this dress.
It’s a different story when we look at Julie Bowen!
Ok, the dress is completely over the top and some might say very 90’s in shape and style. God help me, I don’t know what it is exactly but I really LOVE this. It’s not my usual cup of tea at all but I think she looks so happy and confident in the dress that I’m looking at the style in a completely different way.
Unlike January, this bustline is perfect! It’s flattering, delicate and so very pretty. I love the choice of fabric and the blush/pale pink is just so girlie but the addition of the layered ruffles at the bottom help to remind us that this is definitely a grown ups dress!
Belle Dress Hire has some really beautiful pale coloured dresses available at the moment in sizes 6, 8 and 10 …
