EMMY Looks for Less

Want to look like your favorite star did at the Emmys? Here are some dresses that walked the red carpet, and similar styles you can find at UniqueVintage.com.

First let’s start with some basics… black and silver.


SALE! Flirt by Maggie Sottero 2012 Prom Dresses - Silver Multi-Shape Sequin Sweetheart Fitted Prom Dress - 0 - 18

If you’re looking to catch the light and sparkle from head to toe, check out this Silver Multi-Shape
Sequin Sweetheart Fitted Dress; on sale now for $649. We like the slit up front for leg appeal and to make it easier to walk. Various mirror-style sequins. Comes with detachable halter straps and a zipper back closure.


SALE! Black & Silver Sequin Strapless Sweetheart Radiant Prom Gown - 4 - 18

Take basic black to the next level by adding silver & sparkle. Black & Silver
Sequin Strapless Sweetheart Radiant Gown; on sale now for $129. Silver sequins at bust trickle into all black down the length of the gown. Side slit. I think the sweetheart neckline of this dress is actually nicer than Jane’s straight top.


Heidi rocks a hard to find seafoam color. Looks great on tan blondes! But as you can see in the photo below, it provides a nice contrast for brunettes too.

Mignon Spring 2012 Prom Dress - Graceful Mint Beaded Empire Open Back Prom Dress - 0 - 16

The cheaper Graceful Mint Beaded Empire Open Back Dress; $478, is a sexy surplice bodice gown with crossed back spaghetti straps and a rarely seen bead embellished empire waist. A center gathered full length skirt can hide a tiny tummy. Straps are beaded as well, as is the back of the waistline. Beautiful.


Another lady in blue was SOFIA VERGARA from Modern Family.

Mac Duggal Fall 2012 Dresses - Turquoise Sequin Fitted Halter Open Back Long Dress - 0 - 16

Let your inner siren sing with this Turquoise Sequin Fitted Halter Open Back long dress; $338. Sultry deep V-neck. Sheer beading from the waist to hip to show off your curves without actual cut-outs.


Mac Duggal Fall 2012 Couture Dresses - Aqua Ruched & Ruffled Chiffon Fitted Mermiad Couture Gown - 4 - 20

Maybe if you have an assistant to carry your train you can get away with JULIANNE’s gown. But if you want something you can actually walk and dance in, look at this gorgeous Aqua Ruched & Ruffled Chiffon Fitted Mermaid Couture Gown; $1198. Gorgeous beaded flowers dance along the waist, mermaid skirt is inset with beaded roses completing this absolutely stunning couture evening gown. Criss-crossed layers of gathered chiffon travel across the bodice and up through the shoulder straps. The drop waist skirt has a satin lining with an overlay of soft tulle ruffles and flowers, hidden layers of tulle underneath create a luscious volume.


Faviana Fall 2012 - Royal Blue Angelina Jolie 2009 Oscars Inspired Dress

This Royal Blue Dress; $258 is inspired by Angelina Jolie at the 2009 Oscars. But noone in 2012 or 2013 will know that! Also available in rose, navy, plum, red and ivory. Sweetheart strapless neckline. Runs small, see size chart on website.


I’m a big fan of Kat ever since she was in the teen romance “Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist” with Michael Cera, which is a decent book if you like YA. She has learned how to contain her voluptuous figure and still show skin. Dennings stars in 2 Broke Girls, a CBS television sitcom which seems to involve costumes that are boring and have no femininity, but I guess that goes with her character. Here she rocks her vampy, girly side, and with the similar dress – you can too!

Red Chiffon Strapless Sweetheart Gown; $110, has gathered draping to spare! This stunning gown has a beautiful gathered draping bodice with a strapless sweetheart neckline. Available up to size 3X!


I love Claire Danes. In my mind she is still running around high school, drooling over Jordan Catalano with Rayanne. Here her billowing top helps keep her baby bump under check. Claire Danes quickly expressed her appreciation to Homeland costars after nabbing an Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Sunday, but she also thanked her “baby daddy”. Danes beat out Julianna Margulies, Glenn Close and Kathy Bates for the Outstanding Lead Actress trophy! Go girl!

Sunflower Chiffon Gathered Embellished Waist Strapless Prom Dress width=

Look sunny without disguising anything but a couple extra cookies in this Sunflower Chiffon Gathered Embellished Waist Dress; $278. Flowing strapless dress with pleated straight bodice draped through a beaded side accent loop. Extra long, be prepared to have this hemmed to your perfect length. If you are a brunette, you may be interested to know this dress also comes in fuchsia.

If you LOVE yellow but want something short and sweet, check out this dress with beaded bodice and short tulle skirt. Up to size 4x!

KELLY OSBORNE & TINA FEY rocked eggplant purple on the runway. Here are some great purple inspiration dresses for you, especially if you have extra dark hair and dark or olive skin (like me):

Eggplant Gold Lace Overlay Strapless Empire Beaded Prom Dress; $268.

Pleated satin waistband, gold lace overlay, and beading along the sweetheart neckline.

 Asymmetrical dress with one beaded shoulder and beaded side accent. $318.

The high-low hemline is huge this year! This is a strapless gown with a silver beaded neckline, fitted bodice, and full ruffle trim skirt with high leg slit. For extra support, the dress has soft cup inserts and boning in the bodice. $202.
