Red Carpet to Real Life: Nicole Kidman at the Emmys

Red carpet season has officially begun, thanks to the 64th annual primetime Emmy Awards, which aired on September 23rd. The stars of television all rose to the occasion, donning their finest frocks to celebrate the affair. There were several standout looks, but Nicole Kidman’s white Antonio Berardi dress with sparkling blue accents stood out from the rest. The gown might not be real-life ready, but this look can easily be adapted into an outfit perfect for a dazzling night of your own!

Nicole’s look is simple, but it packs a lot of punch with only a few pieces. The dress is clearly the statement piece with the blue detailing adding just enough embellishment to the otherwise simple white gown. The minimalism of Nicole’s accessories was the right way to go because too much of anything else would take away from the beauty of the dress. She accessorizes with simple teardrop earrings and a strappy shoe, hidden underneath a clean hemline.

2. Drop Earrings ($3.80), Forever 21
3. Sequin Skirt ($56.91), ASOS
4. Nude Pumps ($80.00), Aldo

A dress this dazzling needs an equally shiny counterpart, like this sequined skirt in shades of blue to echo the blue detailing in Nicole’s dress. A simple white tank echoes the classic shape of the white gown, and the high neckline is similar to that of the Berardi dress. A nude pump doesn’t distract from the skirt, just as Nicole’s hidden shoes didn’t distract from her dress. Simple teardrop earrings with a hint of sparkle add that something extra and accentuate the outfit in just the right way.

Just like Nicole’s look, this one only has a few elements, but they work together to create a clean and glamorous outfit. Her stick-straight locks are right on trend for fall, and the minimal makeup with just a touch of blue beautifully brings out the statement color in her dress. This look is all about one statement, and that trend works on the red carpet and in real life!
