The stars were out for the Primetime Emmys. The trends of the evening? Unique jewelry, mermaid-style gowns and one-shoulder designs.
Heidi Klum looked amazing in a black strapless mermaid-style Marchessa gown. The pregnant Klum's glowing face was framed by extremely long black diamond tassel earrings by Lorraine Schwartz that reportedly included 90 karats worth of black diamonds.
Ginnifer Goodwin wore jewelry from newcomer Ivanka Trump. The necklace was a collection of rectangular jewels that sparkled in the LA sunlight. The necklace was so unique and well matched with Goodwin's deep pink YSL gown.
Alyson Hannigan wore a black Vera Wang mermaid-style gown and Olivia Wilde wore a white, one-shoulder, mermaid-style gown by Machessa. January Jones, Amy Poehler, Kathy Griffin, Catt Sadler, Angela Kinsey and Glenn Close also channeled their inner Ariel.
The one-shoulder trend stems back from Michelle Obama's Inauguration gown, designed by Jason Wu, and the look is going strong. At the Emmys, Debra Messing wore a red-hot one-shoulder number from Michael Kors. Hayden Panettiere also wore a red one-shoulder gown (with ruffles - very big!) by J. Mendel. Chloe Sevigny wore a polka dot, one-shoulder dress by Isaac Mizrahi that was different, and only someone like Sevigny could have pulled it off. Patricia Arquette, Sigourney Weaver, Lindsay Price and Jennifer Carpenter also embraced the one-shoulder style.
The look of the night? Kim Kardashian may have nailed it. The model/actress/reality strar/entrepreneur wore a white one-shoulder, mermaid-style gown by Ina Soltani. The dress fit her to perfection and showed off her fabulous figure. Her oversized hoop earrings were simple in design and exquisite in detail, as they were covered in pave diamonds.
