The 2014 Emmy Awards Best-Dressed List

BY JACKIE NASSER, RUE LA LA FASHION DIRECTOR

 

Last night, the biggest stars of television partied in Los Angeles for the Emmys. Red was definitely the color of the night, with Claire Danes, January Jones, and Christina Hendricks all choosing the striking shade.

On stage, there were hilarious presenters (check out Jimmy Kimmel’s roasting of Matthew McConaughey here), a surprising kiss between Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Bryan Cranston, and a Breaking Bad sweep. But the real winners of the night were on the red carpet. See who made my top-five list below.

Our Fashion Director Tackles the Black & White Trend

There’s no color combination more versatile than black and white. The proof? Just check out the three distinctive outfits our fashion director put together below.

alice + olivia

  1. Black-and-white looks don’t have to be basic. Paired with a simple bodysuit, these striped, sequined pants make for a fun party ensemble.
  2. With stripes, don’t always think in one direction. Try them every which way to make a flowy top (like the one above) surprisingly flattering.
  3. Give a nod to the trend’s mod roots with this houndstooth number. For an extra kick, add over-the-knee boots.

 

Our alice + olivia Boutique opened Tuesday, August 26, at 11AM ET.

Peek Inside: A Marc Jacobs Bag in the Making

Ever wondered what goes into making the latest It bag? I know I have, especially when confronted with price tags in the quadruple digits. Sumptuous leather and signature hardware aside, it’s the craftsmanship behind these totable works of art that commands such a devoted following (and the inevitable sticker shock). One such iconic style is the now-defunct Marc Jacobs Stam bag, and the designer is at it again with his latest release: the customizable Incognito. To mark the launch, Marc’s team transports us to its Milan studio in a mesmerizing video that showcases the making of these bags.

The new style is constructed out of 124 pieces (yes, that many). Patterns are traced, leather is cut, and components are sewn together, all by hand, and the process is chronicled in the clip. Now, the only handiwork I can contribute is actually getting my paws on one of these in-demand satchels.
