63rd Primetime Emmy’s, Gigi’s Red Carpet Run Down

Just on the heels of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, the 63rd Primetime Emmy Awards took place Sunday, September 18th at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles. The major attraction was happening on the red carpet where Hollywood starlets shined in gorgeous gowns for last night’s highly anticipated awards.

The silhouette of choice was undoubtedly the body conscious dress. Embellished with sequins, plunging necklines and elegant accessories, the Hollywood Golden Girls put their own little spin on this trend and wore it well. Big winners of the evening rocking the body-con included Kate Winslet, Julie Bowen and Julianna Margulies who all took home an Emmy in their respective categories. Outstanding Lead Actress In a Comedy Series winner, Melissa McCarthy, opted for a dress of her own design {which she created with Daniela Kurrle} when she took the stage for a hilarious and heartfelt acceptance speech.
