Emmy Fashion Trends

  The Emmys are over and other than Modern Family, the theme of the night was definitely navy blue. It came as something of a surprise that this always stylish color dominated the red carpet, but almost everyone who came out in the blue stunned and amazed.   In the Navy Now Both Lea Michele and Julie Bowen looked spectacular in their one shoulder navy gowns.   For some of that asymetric navy glamour, try this Christian Sirano or this Catherine Malandrino.   In fact, blue was so prevalent it was almost difficult to find another trend. But then we let the sea of sparkle take us over. Dazzling elegantly, several small screen sirens made a statement in some gorgeous sequins.   Razzle Dazzle Claire Danes is simple and flawless while Heather Morris from Glee makes it a bit more exciting with a black belt to break it up.   To get this look on RTR, try this Nicole Miller gown. Or, this Robert Rodriguez, which you could add a black belt to a la Heather Morris.     Finally, if you're looking to combine the trends, you can always try this sparkling navy Nicole Miller gown. Who says you can't have it all? Read More
