Emmys 2010 Style Spotlight: Kim Kardashian
Posted on September 09 2010
It’s been over a week, which is like a millennia in fashion time, and Kim Kardashian’s Emmys look is still enchanting. All of that gorgeous draping in a beautiful summer white made her stand out in perfect seasonal style with timeless glamour. And being the style maven that she is, her hair and accessories were also on point, easily making her one of the best dressed of the evening. Even if you can’t afford a custom Marchesa gown and top-of-line jewels like Kim, there are still some style points from her look you can take and make your own.
The first focus of this stunning red carpet ensemble is the gown. White chiffon is an excellent combination of elegance and romance that has look-at-me drama and breezy grace. The ornamental neckline shimmers with gold and silver details in perfect contrast to the rest of the gown. Draping gives the bodice presence, and the slender waistline shows off a curvy silhouette beautifully.
Her hairstyle, a woven and braided updo, is a perfect complement to the dress. The gown is free flowing but also structured and dramatic, so put-together hair is in order. Having the hair up also draws attention to the amazing neckline and flowing back drape.
Simple diamond earrings work well, too, because they don’t overwhelm. The shimmer and shine is eye-catching without competing with the neckline or her glowing face. Instead, Kim saves her power accessory for her wrist with an oversized cuff bracelet that weaves up her forearm in full pave sparkle.
So if you’re interested in pulling off Kim’s Emmys look, start with a flowing gown in white. Hit the salon for a dramatic updo, limit yourself to one power accessory, and smile—you look like a goddess!
