2014 Emmy Awards Fashion: My Picks

Last night, for the first time on a Monday night I might add, due to Sunday Night Football- The 66th Primetime Emmy Awards aired, and while one of the shows I regularly watch didn't win, the other stuff I watch wasn't nominated, for the most part I was pleased with who won- minus the comedy categories.  Anyway this post isn't about the awards show itself, it's about the fashion. It seemed red, coral and white were the colors of the night.
Here are my picks for my favorite dresses of the night.

My favorite look of the night was Lucy Liu in Zac Posen, her hair and make-up were simple and jewelry to a minimum. 

                                                           Taylor Schilling in Zuhair Murad. 

                                                           January Jones in Prabal Gurung. 

                        Michelle Monaghan and unfortunately I don't know who the designer is. 

                                                          Lizzy Caplan in Donna Karan Atelier. 

                                                       Michelle Dockery in Rosie Assoulin. 

                                Shaun Robinson and again I don't know who the designer is. 

Who were your best dressed picks?

Until Next Time,
