2011 Emmy Awards Fashion Recap

Did you tune into watch the 63rd Annual Emmy Awards? The Emmy Awards are sort of the unofficial kickoff to awards season.  This means a new season of watching to see which of your favorite stars, TV shows and movies take home the gold. The Emmy Awards also kick off perhaps my favorite part of awards season…the fashion.

If you watched last night there was a lot going on in the way of fashion and shoe trends. I took notes, and tracked down some shoes similar to those worn by Tinsel Town’s most famous stars. If you’re looking for the perfect shoe to pair with your special occasion outfit, here are some great choices at a fraction of the cost.

Emmy Awards 2011 Shoes

Black Strappy Sandals

The red carpet was bursting with color last night. And perhaps the most popular of the evening was *red. Several actresses donned shades of crimson paired with black and gold sandals.

Adrianne Palicki from Friday Night Lights wore a beautiful satin halter gown with strappy black sandals.

Black strappy sandals are a must-have for your shoe closet. They’re the perfect go-to shoe and work well with a lot of different colors and clothing silhouettes.

These styles are a bit different, but once again, both are so versatile.  They’re also stylish, and affordable.

Shades Of Pale

Model and host of Project Runway Heidi Klum is a style star, and last night was no different. Taking a fashion risk, Klum worked the red carpet in a daring design from Christian Siriano. The light colored hue definitely stood out in the sea of red, and her matching nude shoes were a great choice.

All That Glitters Is Gold…

Many starlets at the Emmys added a bit of sparkle and gold to finish off their look. Friday Night Lights star Connie Britton donned an elegant crimson-colored gown and paired it with gold sandals. Now, mixing the two shades together can be hit-or-miss, but Britton hit the style target.
