In case you missed all the red carpet action at the 66th Primetime Emmy Awards on Monday night, our Fashion Editor sure didn’t! She was at home (obviously) watching TV stars alike say each and every fashion designer they were wearing. From Claire Danes’ red illusion lace cut-outs to Hayden Panettiere’s sequins and Kerry Washington’s thigh-high slit to Allison William’s big ol’ ball gown, see how you can steal their looks for your walk down the aisle.

Theia - The White Collection by Theia is ideal for the bride who loves the feminine details of traditional wedding gowns, yet seeks a modern edge in form and function. Theia even designed a sequined and hand-embroidered sweatshirt for the bride that really wants to make a statement. We also saw gorgeous silk organza, delicate touches of gold, satin petals, and a ballgown with hidden pockets! Now, how genius is that?

Who can forget the only iconic wedding dress that wasn’t actually worn for a wedding? Audrey Hepburn’s in the 1957 movie Funny Face started the tea-length trend featuring capped sleeves, bateau neckline, and ball gown skirt. Three years earlier, Hepburn wore a wreath full of fresh roses in place of a veil or headpiece at her first marriage to Mel Ferrer. Her tea-length wedding dress designed by Pierre Balmain was almost identical to the one worn in Funny Face, but instead had wide chiffon long-sleeves. This utterly feminine style is short and sweet and shows off your ankles unlike most other traditional (long) wedding dresses. Plus, an added bonus, it’s easy to dance in! Check out our favorite look-a-likes above.

Designers Turn to Lace for Romance

Your wedding day is all about the love you share with your fiance, so why not wed in the most romantic of fabrics, lace. Whether choosing a bold floral pattern or a very fine Chantilly, lace exudes romance and has a very delicate, ladylike quality to it.

Designers are showing gowns in head-to-tow lace as well as accents and embellishments. Illusion necklines, a carry-over trend from last season, has expanded from clean tulle and netting to fine floral laces, creating sheer, high-neck lines that give a girl the modesty she may want for her ceremony, but still revealing a bit skin at the same time. Above are examples of some all-over lace wedding gowns from Spring 2013 Bridal Market:

Lea-Ann Belter Bridal added a soft color sash to define the waistline on this floor-length sheath. The lace overlay allows a hint of the blush underneath to peek through.

Using guipure lace Theia designed a very traditional sweetheart strapless gown and paired it with a matching guipure veil.

Temperley London’s lace gown hugs the body ever so slightly, features a high-neck, capped sleeves, and a thin belt at the waist.
