Starts with Inspiration: 2012 Emmys Edition

Last night's Emmys red carpet was an exercise in colour and texture identification. Among the sea of pastels, burgundy, bright citron (my favorite hue of the night!), here are my top three favourites.


Julianne Hough looked every bit the ethereal mermaid princess in Georges Hobeika Couture. Loving her old-Hollywood inspired look. And the aqua-ivory combo? Just divine.

Julie Bowen epitomized shock-rock with her electric yellow Monique Lhuillier dress. The bright hue was head-turning, but the feminine lines and geometric draping kept her looking every inch the classy lady.

I saved the best for last. It's not always easy wearing a dress that technically clashes with the red carpet. But one look at Ginnifer Goodwin's tangerine dress paired with matching Christian Louboutin shoes proves that sometimes it's okay to break the rules. The detailing on this dress is insane, no other accessories are needed, the appliqué detail is in itself the proverbial icing on the cake.
