Fashion Flashback: The Best Pink Gowns of The Emmy Awards!


The ceremony for The 74th Annual Emmy Awards takes place tomorrow night & I’m so excited to see what my favorite stars are wearing, especially since there are so many deserving returning favorites to the show, along with first-time nominees whose work has been dominating social media fodder. This includes Amanda Seyfried, Lily James, Sydney Sweeney, Zendaya, Elle Fanning, Hannah Waddingham, Rachel Brosnahan, Kaley Cuoco, Selena Gomez, Sandra Oh, Reese Witherspoon, Julia Garner, Christina Ricci, Melanie Lynskey, & more! However, in honor of tomorrow night’s broadcast, I wanted to take a walk down Fashion Memory Lane to celebrate gowns of years’ past in pink!

I choose pink since I am predicting that is the color that will reign over this year’s red carpet, especially after a summer of Barbiecore. In the past, we’ve seen elegance & edge in black, red, white, & metallic tones, but nothing beats a look in a pink champagne, cotton candy, rose gold, dusty rose, salmon, magenta, or dark fuchsia! No matter if an entire gown is in pink, if it’s in a pattern, or a playful accent to a look, pink hues are timeless & ageless, as well as luxe on any red carpet. Take s look at the range of pinks from previous Emmy Awards below:

Vanessa Kirby, Angelina Jolie, Julie Bowen, Emma Roberts, & Halle Berry at the Emmy Awards.
Maisie Williams, Giuliana Rancic, & Elisabeth Moss at the Emmy Awards.
Beth Behrs, Sophia Bush, Thandiwe Newton, Giuliana Rancic, Sophie Turner Jonas at the Emmy Awards.
Sarah Jessica Parker, Keri Russell, Jewel, Alexis Bledel, & January Jones at the Emmy Awards.
Lena Dunham, Dascha Polanco, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Vanessa Bayer, & Halsey at the Emmy Awards.
Vanessa Kirby, Yara Shahidi, Sandra Oh, Beanie Feldstein, & Debra Messing at the Emmy Awards.
Thandiwe Newton, Rose Byrne, Hannah Einbinder, Hannah Waddingham, & Tracee Ellis Ross at the Emmy Awards.
Brooke Shields, Jane Fonda, Tracee Ellis Ross, Viola Davis, & Zooey Deschanel at the Emmy Awards.

Michelle Obama Literally Sparkles!


Former First Lady Michelle Obama is a style icon & has been from the second she entered the spotlight during her husband’s presidential campaign. However, now she’s promoting her book, Becoming, & is doing it with more flair, sass, & style than we’ve ever seen before. During this week’s appearance at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, she shimmered & sparkled in a silky yellow dress by Demna Gvasalia. If that gorgeousness wasn’t enough, she styled the frock with stunning gold holographic Balenciaga over-the-knee boots (shop here) that ring upwards of $4,000, while being interviewed by Sarah Jessica Parker. Sparkles sparkled aplenty during the interview, wise words were shared, but mostly #styleinspiration was felt by all.

Wow With White This Fall!


White is often perceived as a tricky color to pull off, especially when its contrast, black, is so classic to wear when seeking a slimming effect, drama, & minimalism. Also, white is atypical for a fall outfit, but rules like that are meant to be broken when making a stylish statement. Take note from recent looks worn by Anne Hathaway, Kim Kardashian West, Bella Hadid, Jenna Dewan, Victoria Beckham, Lupita Nyong’o, Viola Davis, & Sarah Jessica Parker (in white pumps).

You don’t have to be a celebrity or walk the red carpet regularly to don an all-white ensemble either. White in the fall (heading into the holidays & winter) is a bright alternative to the muted & deep hues to wear that are common for this season. Play around with combinations, such as white with merlot, mustard, or charcoal to reinvent old favorites. Shop the following affordable selections to jump on board this crisp trend!

blouse @Old Navy (available in sizes XS-XXL)

pants @New York & Companyblazer @H&Msweater @Forever 21 (plus size)Jessica Simpson pumps @DSW

My biggest style obsession this fall & really for 2015 is earrings, as seen in detail with my Instagram posts (Follow Style Darling Daily @MissAlissaL).

The Stylish Five: Affordable Scarves for Fall ($11 & Under), Inspired by Jessica Alba, Ashley Olsen, & More!


Somewhere along the way, I fell in love with scarves. They’re perfect for fall & winter, adding that extra splash of personality to your outfit, & only this summer did I realize the full potential of my look when there’s a stylish scarf wrapped around the handle of my favorite tote & crossbody bags. This was a way to get the most use out of my ever-growing scarf collection all year long, resolving the problem of my arms getting chilly during those cool, starry summer nights. However, you can get plenty of scarf envy from some of today’s most stylish celebrities whose looks are elevated by the accessory, like Jessica Alba, Rihanna, Emma Watson, Rachel Bilson, Sarah Jessica Parker, & Ashley Olsen.

In preparation for fall fashion, I wanted to share some of my favorite picks, in prints & solids, to inspire your scarf love, especially when wardrobe budgeting is essential. Scarves can dress down a black dress for day & keep you cozy when there’s a shift in temperature in the evening. Scarves also present an opportunity to play with prints, like trying a stripe against a polka dot (in a similar color scheme) or mixing leopard with something menswear inspired.
