Trophy NIKOLAKI--Lauren Gish, one of the 2014 Emmy Awards Trophy models in NIKOLAKI black draped bias-cut silk gown with gold top detail--66th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards

The 66th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards were this past Monday night. I was so excited to see that two of my NIKOLAKI gowns were worn by the fabulous 2014 Emmy Awards Trophy Models...
Red on the Red Carpet: Nick Verreos and model Amanda Fields Bennett in NIKOLAKI filming an Emmys Red Carpet Trend TV Segment at FIDM Museum for NTD Chinese TV

This past week--leading up to the 2014 Primetime Emmy Awards---I was invited to film a TV segment discussing what I thought would be the 2014 Emmy Awards Red Carpet Fashion Trends using my very own NIKOLAKI Collection gowns.

Last night were the 66th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards. Lots of top A-list celebs walked the red carpet showing off several Trends of the night, including Ball Gowns, Bright Colors, RED!, Sequined Gowns, Goddess Flowy Dresses, Color Blocking, and so on. There were many ladies who looked great last night so here is my List of the Top Ten Best Dressed of the night--no particular order:

Julia Roberts in Elie Saab Haute Couture Fall 2014

The always stunning Julia Roberts DAZZLED at the 66th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards red carpet in a cocktail dress from Elie Saab Haute Couture Fall 2014. I thought it was actually a nice change of pace seeing an actress in a short dress as opposed to a gown. Now, this isn't just any short dress, it's a $50,000+ costing Elie Saab Haute Couture one. Completely hand-sewn silk organza with hand-applied underlay of lace plus...thousands of hand-sewn sequins and oversized half-bubbled jewels:

I thought Julia looked great and it was smart to keep everything else--the hair, makeup, the peep-toe pumps--simple, clean and chic.Oh, and yes, Julia wore her best accessory: her SMILE! That's worth more than any Haute Couture creation!

Kate Walsh in Stephane Rolland Haute Couture Spring/Summer 2014

Actress Kate Walsh wore a bright mustard yellow (bright colors was a big trend at the 2014 Primetime Emmy Awards red carpet) gown from Parisian designer Stephane Rolland and his 2014 Spring/Summer Haute Couture collection. This was one of my favorite gown from this collection and therefore it was a treat to see it being worn on a major red carpet. The silk crepe gown features a high neck, drop shoulder cap "sleeves", an architectural peplum detail that cascades from front to back...

Sequined Gorgeous: The peplum cascade lining (and sides of the column skirt) are completely hand-beaded with thousands of paillettes and sequins. This gown is a work of art and took hundreds--if not thousands--of hours to create. After all it's Haute Couture. If I had any issue with Kate and the look, it was the styling; I wasn't a fan of her hair and I definitely don't think she needed the necklace. It should have been left just like it was shown on the runway:

Sans the necklace...Better. What do you guys think?
Kerry Washington in custom Prada

ABC "Scandal" actress Kerry Washington wore an orange sherbet colored strapless gown made custom for her by the Italian fashion house of Prada. The gown featured sequins sewn onto the bust darts and seams of the dress; it also had a high side-front slit and a peek-a-boo under skirt appliqued in crystals and sequins.   
Kerry Washington in Custom Prada--2014 Primetime Emmy Awards Red Carpet

I liked the dress but I thought there were fit issues with the bustier/top section. It seemed to be collapsing and a bit askew...
What did you guys think? Yea or Nay?
