Right on the heels of Fashion Week, last Sunday night officially kicked off the 2011 awards season with the 63rd Primetime Emmy Awards! As you know, with every awards season comes the glitz and glam of the red carpet and last night proved to be no exception. TV's hottest ladies (Kate Winslet was a huge fave of ours for the phenomenal Mildred Pierce miniseries) stepped out in true style making their presence known on the red carpet wearing dresses in shades from neutral to dark (and many bravely sporting red in competition with the red carpet).
Standout looks we loved were the neutral dresses, especially those with a hint of glitz, as well as the dark navys and sparkling jet blacks. Yet overall, the clear winner of the night was anything in bold red (but enough about dresses as our true love is always the jewelry that completes each and every one of these looks!).
So...prepare to be dazzled below by our top jewelry picks from last night's 63rd Primetime Emmy Awards!
Laura James Jewelry's Top Jewelry Picks from the Emmy's Are...
Red Dress Jewelry Pairing Picks:
Not only was red last night's standout color but the jewelry paired with these red hot looks was EPIC!
Sofia was simply breathtaking in Vera Wang + simply stunning with the pairing of her gown with those huge Colombian emerald earrings + amazing gold cuff bracelet! If you got might as well flaunt it..even if the jewels are borrowed
Leah Michele's bright red Marchesa dress with its embellished shoulders and scoop back was the statement maker last night so we commend her for keeping jewelry simple and subtle opting only for large ruby ring by Lorriane Schwartz
Emmy award winner Kate Winslet was a standout for her acting in Mildred Pierce as much as she was on last night's red carpet in the red Elie Saab dress paired with sparkling Cartier jewels!
Nina Dorev in red sparkled in Neil Lane diamond/platnium earrings and 19th century vintage choker
Sarah Hyland Love her choice of jewelry with this art deco inspired black + silver drop earrings & art deco bracelet
Dark Dress Jewelry Pairing Picks:
Evan Rachel Wood brought her signature old Hollywood glam with an edge in Elie Saab's black glitzy gown paired with Fred Leighton jewelry. Subtle diamond teardrop earrings offset the Fred Leighton's vintage diamond broach pendant set on a dark metal cuff- stunNING
Emmy winner Julie Bowen dazzled in her Oscar de la Renta gown paired with Neil Lane pear shaped black + white diamond earrings... but it's hard not to dazzle when your the Emmy winner & wearing $50,000 earrings!
Neutral Dress Jewelry Pairing Picks:
We covet Elizabeth Moss's Vintage Inspired Earrings by Lorraine Schwartz. We love this earring look and how it plays off the subtle glitz and vintage feel of her Marchesa gown.
Absolutely amazing are these pieces statement floral diamond jewelry Heidi Klum paired with her Christian Siriano dress.
