Emmys 2012 Red Carpet Trends - Gray

Gray has always been a favorite of ours for evening wear. It is a great alternative to black and does not seem to date. It comes in a range of shades but finding the right one for your coloring is very important.

Sarah Hyland designed her soft grey dress with Marchesa. The draping across the bust and gathered detail at the waist is reminiscent of a bygone era. Definitely not a look for everyone but we think this spritely young lady looked sweet.

Emily Vancamp has been one of televisions most watched fashionistas this year and we looked forward to seeing her red carpet style. As much as we love her gray J. Mendel gown with it's sheer panels and tulle we feel the look is somewhat lost on Emily.  We much prefer the original design with it's sheer skirt and slightly darker detailed bodice. Emilys makeup is also too neutral for this color and her skintone making everything a bit one dimensional and flat.

Morena Baccarin was the real winner in the gray stakes in her stunning Basil Soda evening gown. The color was perfect against her skintone and dark locks. She complimented her beautiful gown with gray eyeshadow and a plum lip.

Gray carries an understated glamour. Make sure to find your perfect shade of gray and add some color in your makeup for drama. A red lip is the perfect accessory to a gray gown!
