Fashion rules are yours to make. Not wearing white after Labor Day is so passé. Don’t wait for your wedding day, all white is beautiful, so wear it to an event to stand out. Just maybe stick to white wine instead! So many of our favorite celebrity beauties donned this look in various ways, creating an ethereal look.

Black-ish actress Yara Shahidi wore a Clara Rotescu ball gown with menswear accents. The button-up and collar top juxtaposed nicely against the white and gold accents. It’s great to see this young Hollywood star making some regal style statements.

Actress Niecy Nash arrived to the Emmys in a sweetheart neckline, mermaid Christian Siriano floor-length gown. The sash shows off her curves and the fabric flows effortlessly.

It was a gold rush at the Emmys! Maybe the stars were influenced by all the USA gold medal wins in Rio, but this metallic hue dominated the red carpet. For major glam, you can go for gold embellishments like Laverne Cox, or play it down with a matted tone like Sofia Vergara. We love the goddess style Claire Danes is rocking. Metallics are year-round so wear the gown this month and then bust it out again around the holidays.


You think bright colors can only be worn in the summer? Don’t fall into fall fashion faux pas lies and put away your brights! Both Taraji P. Henson and Angela Bassett chose yellow for some bold style. While most people choose reds or even jewel-tone blues, yellow is always a winner. This bright hue looks best on darker skinned women, who can wear the color in any shade. If you are lighter, opt for it in a pattern.

Also, can we please point out Taraji’s personalized metallic clutch? So cute! Yellow with gold accents is so refreshing and the perfect transition into fall.

Viola Davis also opted for a bright pink Marchesa dress. We love that her husband, actor Julius Tennon, subtly matched with her, rocking a bright pink bow tie. The couple that slays together, stays together!

Ray star Regina King looked beautiful in a strapless coral Elizabeth Kennedy gown. Coral is a nice change from the typical red sported on the red carpet.
