Capsule Wardrobe: Primetime Emmys

Awards shows are my thing. I get excited just thinking about celebs being star struck by other celebs. It’s like a night of inside jokes that the public gets to watch (cue Michael Scott, “I love inside jokes. I’d love to be a part of one someday”). I love watching people of influence taking a stand for a cause close to their hearts. My absolute favorite part about awards shows, however, is the fashion. Watching the stars walk down the red carpet feels like walking through a museum. I love that what they’re wearing has something to say: whether they’re paying homage to a character or even, in some cases, purposefully revolting against that particular character (for example, anytime that January Jones walks the red carpet). Even if you don’t have a black tie event to attend, you can still rock these trends and look like an award-winning actress. Get ready for a week’s worth of Emmy goodness.
