2013 Emmy Awards: Stars Stunned in Lingerie Inspired Gowns

The Emmy Awards always celebrate the best actors of television. However, it's clear in pop culture that women are ruling our screens; Kaley Cuoco of the Big Bang Theory, Lena Headey of Game of Thrones, Kate Mara in House of Cards, and Kerry Washington in Scandal. Besides having immense talent, these actresses know the importance of high fashion and making a statement. We were especially pleased to see that these four ladies all wore lingerie inspired gowns this year!

Kaley Cuoco
Kaley Cuoco exceeded expectations as she graced the Red Carpet in a deep burgundy Vera Wang gown. Kaley has drastically matured in her style recently, and this gown proves it. We especially love the main focal point of the exposed corset. It perfectly accentuated her midriff, and seamlessly lead down to the floor in a tutu skirt of detailed stitches. Every aspect of the gown guaranteed the starlet a spot on the best dress list.

Lena Headey
Lena Heady worked the red carpet in a transparent black lace dress by Alessandra Rich. The starlet effortlessly donned a pair of high-wasted black briefs and the rest was all leg! The sheer lace ensemble was quite the controversy- But we love that she pulled it off beautifully at the age of 39, proving that “age is just a number.” Headey’s dress is modern, feminine, and sexy.  Rock on!

Kate Mara
Kate Mara stole the spotlight in this J. Mendel number. This fresh burst of white on the Red Carpet had several compelling parts, like the translucent white strips in varying widths and the daring high slit that reaches even past mid-thigh. What really makes this gown stand out is the suggestive bare side that displays Mara’s phenomenal figure. We all know she has a gorgeous feminine shape, but this dress truly highlighted her mature and sexy side.  We also give extra points to anyone who manages to work pockets into an awards show number - a girl has to put her keys somewhere, right?

Kerry Washington
Kerry Washington, who was just dubbed “Best Dressed of 2013” from People Magazine, is a veteran of picking the right style for the moment.  We knew she'd be on our list even before we saw the dress!  Kerry chose a Marchesa gown (always a winner) from the Spring 2014 collection. It's an elegant cream and white hued masterpiece of floral lace, flowers, peek-a-boos, and straps that feel more fairy-like than bondage. Accompanied by a hint of gold lace, this design is sweet as can be- and Kerry, of course, is beyond radiant.

These women are style icons who display their talents on the screen and influential style in real life. Kaley Cuoco stepped outside the box with a successful, refined style with a gorgeous corset. Lena Heady stole the show with her memorable gown and daring high-waisted lace briefs. Kate Mara elevated the conventional white evening gown by baring a bit more skin in an artistic way. And Kerry Washington spiced up a fairytale gown with appliqued flowers, gold accents, and a sheer tulle skirt. These stars demonstrated that innerwear-as-outerwear is here to stay - and that's just the way we like it!  Bravo!
