Emmys 2016: Dramatic Details

This year's Emmys red carpet was full of a variety of styles from simple midi dresses to embellished sparkling gowns. My top 3 best dressed proves the wide range of looks that stars chose last night, however they have one thing in common: dramatic details. 

 Kerry Washington's Brandon Maxwell gown was modified from a dress from his Spring 2017 collection. The foldover bustier neckline and side cutouts perfectly highlighted the curve of her best accessory: her baby bump! Adding to the drama was the cape and her voluminous curly hairstyle.

 Designer Zac Posen brought Emily Ratajkowski as his date, and he couldn't have picked a better muse to model one of his latest gowns. At the same time structured and slinky, the gorgeous navy dress featured layers of dramatic draping in the train and origami-like folding at the neckline.

Kristen Bell's Zuhair Murad gown was a showstopper in it's ethereal beauty. With a full, dramatic sweeping skirt and plunging neckline, the dress seemed like a perfect Summer-to-Fall red carpet look. The embellished floral pattern shimmered in the light but wasn't overly sparkly, which gave it even more elegance.

These stars each chose very different red carpet looks, however each had a dramatic detail which drew me to their style. I love to see amped-up looks at major awards shows, and this year, the Emmys did not disappoint. Who were your best dressed picks?
