Emmys 2016 Dress Predictions: The Gowns We'd Love to See, Straight from New York Fashion Week
Who We’d Like to See Wear It: Viola Davis loves to make a red carpet statement in soft, feminine gowns (the complete opposite of her How to Get Away With Murder character), which is why this Posen piece would do the trick.
Who We’d Like to See Wear It: We are so excited to see what UnREAL's ballbuster Constance Zimmer will wear on the red carpet because she's pretty much top-to-bottom awesome and can wear whatever she wants. We're hoping she picks something bold yet feminine, like this Posen design.
OSCAR DE LA RENTA
Who We’d Like to See Wear It: There's nothing nominee Emilia Clarke of Game of Thrones loves more that a voluminous gown with a deep V neckline, like this Oscar de la Renta design.
OSCAR DE LA RENTA
Who We'd Like to See Wear It: Transparent's Judith Light is one of the most fun people to watch on the red carpet. She does pants! She does gowns! She does it all! Why not choose a look with some funky sequin fringe? Because if anyone can make this look extra regal, it's her.
OSCAR DE LA RENTA
Who We'd Like to See Wear It: At 19, nominee Maisie Williams of Game of Thrones has the freedom to pick whatever she wants for the red carpet, though she has to be careful not to look too young or too old. This strapless column by Oscar de la Renta could provide the perfect balance.
Who We'd Like to See Wear It: We really want to see Keri Russell of The Americans step away from a frilly dress and move into a stop-'em-in-their-tracks look, and this Jenny Packham column with a sheer and embroidered bodice would do just that.
CUSHNIE ET OCHS
Who We'd Like to See Wear It: Tracee Ellis Ross, who is nominated, has some of the most fun DGAF red carpet of anyone out there, which is why she's so much fun to watch. We hope she picks this caramel look by Cushnie et Ochs, not just because it would look impeccable on her, but also because we know she'd work it like no one else.
Who We'd Like to See Wear It: Nominee Robin Wright of House of Cards isn't exactly known to pick the most colorful of dresses for awards shows, but we're hoping she switches it up a little this time around for this Siriano showstopper. The shoulder-baring neckline and teal-lined cape would flatter her gorgeous frame perfectly.
Who We'd Like to See Wear It: Like the multi-faceted characters she plays, we picture Orphan Black's Tatiana Maslany in a dress that offers more than meets the eye, like this Carolina Herrea design featuring a mix of lace, sequins, sheer and more.
Who We'd Like to See Wear It: Nominee Kirsten Dunst of Fargo has had a total style transformation over the past few months, as she's gone for more feminine, delicate designs with bright colors and pretty ruffles. This Altuzarra look needs to be worn by someone who could pull off all the intricacies of the design, and that someone is Dunst.
Who We'd Like to See Wear It: Taraji P. Henson has chosen Alexander Wang for the Golden Globes earlier this year and last year's Emmys, so the Empire nominee very well may pick the New York designer yet again. If so, we hope she goes for this irridescent sequin gown, so she can stroll down that red carpet like the glamorous woman she is.
Who We'd Like to See Wear It: Game of Thrones star Lena Headey rules the roost as Cersei Lannister, and we predict she'll do the same on the red carpet in a sophisticated, yet princess-like design such as this Marchesa embroidered confection.
Who We'd Like to See Wear It: Presenter Kristen Bell's go-to for the red carpet is simple — a really pretty gown. Hence, this Marchesa pick.
Who We'd Like to See Wear These: Presenters Amy Poehler and Tina Fey would look amazing in the form-fitting, figure-flattering designs of Maxwell, who also collaborates often with Lady Gaga.
Who We'd Like to See Wear These: No one can go wrong in a standard Monique Lhuillier princess look, and these are made those who can flutter down the red carpet, like presenter Julie Bowen.
Who We'd Like to See Wear It: We are dying for presenter Mandy Moore to make a STATEMENT at the Emmys this Sunday, and we hope she shows up in a big, giant gown that says "I am Mandy Moore, and I am heerrrrreeeee!!!!!" This design would be perfect for that, no?
Who We'd Like to See Wear It: Homeland's Claire Danes loves a look that's sculpted completely to her body, and she's done better with form-fitting looks than giant ballgowns. There would be nothing more head-turning on her than this bold violet Ralph Lauren look.
Who We Want to See Wear It: This gorgeous one-shoulder design would be a fine pick for Kerry Washington, who is nominated for her role in Confirmation. We'd love to see the pregnant star continue to push the limit on maternity style with this bright, leg-revealing look.
Who We'd Like to See Wear It: Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt's Ellie Kemper is NOT afraid of color, which is why we selected this sky blue J. Mendel flowing gown for the star. She exudes happiness, as does this dress!
Who We'd Like to See Wear It: We'd love to see Sarah Paulson, who is nominated for both The People v. O.J. Simpson and American Crime Story, sashay down the red carpet in J. Mendel's subtle flowing gown with a beaded bodice.
