Gown-gawking at Emmys 2016

The low-down on some of the most arresting gowns on the red carpet…
Emmys 2016 red carpet was a riot of colours – bright red, pale gold, forest green, highlighter yellow and muted ivory – some accented with dramatic ruffles, others with cut-out details. Most actresses played safe and opted for feminine silhouettes and decidedly pretty aesthetic. Ruffles, head-to-toe fully sequinned looks and applique embroidery were the three major recurring trends which emerged.
Ravishing in red

Priyanka Chopra rocked a draped red one-shoulder Jason Wu custom gown (“He designed it, and that was it!” she said) with cutouts at the shoulder and waist, plus a matching lip and dazzling Neil Lane earrings.
