The Best and Worst Looks from the 2015 Emmys – How you can take red carpet advice

The 2015 Emmy Awards Red Carpet was the perfect preview for fall trends. Some celebrities hit the red carpet looking fierce and fabulous, and others just went all wrong. This fall is all about neutrals with hints of metallic, the perfect fit, and tasteful twists on classic looks. Take inspiration from these red carpet looks and try to incorporate them into your fall fashion!

A big trend on the red carpet was the blazer and tailored pant for women. Carrie Brownstein is pictured wearing a fitted blazer and pant combo by Stella McCartney. The key to rocking this look is to find a great fitting blazer and perfectly fitted pant. You can find an inexpensive blazer and dress pant almost anywhere, but it pays off if you invest in a tailor. It’s all about the perfect fit. If your suit fits right in all the right places, you will feel like an unstoppable #girlboss.

Another big fall trend is the cut-out dress. Pictured is Amanda Peet wearing a dress by Michael Kors. It’s not a very complicated dress, but she pieces the look together with a bright red lip and topknot. To spice up your little black dress this fall, take inspiration from this Emmys look and find a simple black dress with tasteful cutouts.

Kerry Washington’s dress by Marc Jacobs is a modern take on the wrap dress, pulling inspiration from 70s and 80s fashion. The shoulder pads give the dress structure while the metallic material gives off a fun vibe. To mix this look into your fall fashions, try playing with volume in your everyday look. You can find a blouse or dress with shoulder pads that give off just the right amount of volume, or add a little metallic in your wardrobe with statement necklaces or bracelets.

Emma Roberts is rocking the old Hollywood glam look with a nude dress by Jenny Packham and jewelry by Martin Katz. The nude shade highlights her gleaming skin tone and accents her blonde hair. To incorporate this Emmys red carpet look, try a nude blouse with a suede skirt. Nude pumps are also a classic way to pull together any night-out look. When wearing nude, always try to pair it with a pop of color such maroon or navy blue. These contrast colors will help pull together any look.

Some celebrities went all wrong when dressing for the red carpet event. Amy Landecker is wearing a similar styled metallic dress to Kerry Washington’s dress, but the difference is Amy’s dress is too tight and unflattering in all the wrong places. The material comes off as chunky and heavy, adding unwanted weight to her figure.

Padma Lakshmi is pictured in a yellow dress by Romona Keveza. Her dress is so tight that it is pulling at her chest and revealing an unflattering fit in her stomach area. The right fit is so important. Don’t try to fit into a size 00 jean if you are a size 2. Wearing the right size will always look the most flattering on any body type.

Heidi Klum’s dress by Versace and Kathryn Hahn’s dress look as if they pieced different dresses together. To avoid this in your wardrobe, try pairing simple things together, such as a basic white tee and jeans with a bright coat. If you have more than two statement pieces on at a time, you most likely look too done up and confused about the look you are trying to go for.
