I watch the red carpet to get ideas on trends in hair, makeup & wardrobe looks that I can try at home. Here are my personal favs from last night’s 2012 Emmy Awards…

DRESS: Julianne Hough

In a sequin Georges Hobeika Couture gown, this shade of aqua is absolutely divine (and works on most skin tones). Sparkly pastels always get my attention on the red carpet.

HAIR: Kat Dennings

I love updos for the red carpet, but something about Kat’s ultra sultry & partially pulled back curls make me want to try this as a date night hair look.

MAKEUP: Zooey Deschanel

Metallic silver eye shadow & a hot pink lip make for a gorgeous red carpet look. It goes perfectly with her beautiful raven locks.

Dahlings, which dress & whose hair & makeup were your favs?
