Emmy Awards 2016: The Best Red Carpet Looks to Inspire Your Wedding Dress
See which stars looked aisle-ready on the red carpet for TV's biggest night.
Why not let "TV's biggest night" inspire your own big day? Along with the best actors and actresses in television, the 2016 Emmys saw some pretty great fashion moments, too. Take these white gowns and more bridal-inspired looks worn by celebrities on the red carpet. And since the aisle is essentially your very own red carpet moment, it's no wonder we're picturing these looks on brides! Here, our favorite "bridal" looks from the 68th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards at Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, California.
Blushing bride, anyone? Giuliana was just gorgeous in a pink tulle gown with a matching embroidered cape by George Chakra.
The comedian and Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series nominee for her role on HBO's Getting On glowed in a curve-hugging white strapless gown by Christian Siriano, which would transition seamlessly to the aisle.
Take a cue from Constance Zimmer and incorporate some unconventional color into your wedding dress! The nominee for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama (for her work in UnREAL) wore a white sheath gown with pretty pink embroidery—by wedding dress pro Monique Lhuillier.
Up for Lead Actress in a Limited Series Or Movie for her role on American Crime, the star stunned in a nude A-line gown with delicate white lace detailing, by Tony Ward Couture.
Calling all cool-girl brides! The Modern Family actress demonstrated how do bridal like a boss in her separates by Monique Lhuillier. With its sweeping train and florals, the ivory top is the epitome of femininity, while the black cropped pants put an edge on the ensemble.
The same man behind Emily Ratajkowski's jaw-dropping navy fit-and-flare gown is a mainstay in bridal fashion: Zac Posen! Even better, the designer accompanied the actress onto the red carpet.
Nominated for Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series for Game of Thrones, Emilia Clarke is a serious screen siren in this scoop-neck nude gown by Atelier Versace—perfect for brides who want to channel Old Hollywood glamour.
Red might seem like an unconventional choice for a bride, but it's actually the traditional color for Chinese wedding dresses and Indian wedding saris. Might we suggest this one-shoulder A-line gown designed by Jason Wu and worn by Quantico star Priyanka Chopra?
Printed wedding dress? Yes please! Kristen Bell is all romance in her V-neck floral ball gown by Zuhair Murad. We're in love!
Tracee Ellis Ross
The Black-ish actress made history for being the first black woman in 30 years to be nominated for Outstanding Leading Actress in a Comedy Series. And on the red carpet, she made just as big of a splash—in this white one-shoulder gown with a sexy cutout at the waist. The gown was custom-designed by Ralph Lauren and, as Ross said, is "bringing luck to the moment".
With its metallic straps and ruffled detailing on the back, the Modern Family actress's ivory sheath Lela Rose dress is pure elegance. Plus, we're loving that copper clutch!
How glam is Orange Is the New Black actress and Emmy presenter Laverne Cox in her gleaming gold gown by bridal favorite Naeem Khan? #GoddessGoals
Leave it to Olivia Culpo to rock this strapless Zac Posen dress, straight off the New York Fashion Week runway. Featuring embroidery that calls to mind the starry night sky, the actress's transparent gown gives a subtle yet sexy glimpse of skin. This sheer, or "naked" look is big in bridal right now!
Best Actress in a Drama Series nominee for The Americans Keri Russell is super chic in her off-white gown, which looks playfully modern from the front and grand (with a light-as-air train) in the back.
Shameless's Emmy Rossum proves keeping it simple can pay off big with her V-neck white column gown. An eye-catching slit in the skirt keeps things interesting.
We're suckers for a good shirtdress, especially for brides, and Black-ish's Yara Shahidi pulls this one off in a big way. Standout elements: the chic collar, white-and-gold print, and twirl-ready skirt!
