Polly Wants a Diamond Earring: Earrings Rule the Emmy’s Red Carpet

By  , Wednesday, September 21, 2011

Polly Wants Diamond Earrings
The morning after the Emmy’s, the web is abuzz with bloggers rating the stars’ red carpet looks. But here, we leave aside the discussion of Kate Winslet’s red dress and GynethPaltrow’s controversial cutouts and focus on something even more important: the red carpet jewelry!
Beside for the ever-present engagement rings, only one bona fide fashion trend emerged from this year’s Emmy’s red carpet: earrings are back. After years in which statement necklaces took central stage, gorgeous earrings are finally back. Nearly every well-dressed star on the red carpet showed off a pair of stunning earrings set with everything from ideal cut diamonds to onyx and rubies.
Heidi Klum set the tone with an enormous pair of ruby earrings shaped like flowers—she also wore a matching ring as well as her diamond engagement ring from her husband, Seal. Modern Family’s Julie Bowen and Sofia Vergara picked up on the trend as well; Bowen chose subtle black onyx drop earrings and Vergara opted for a bold pair of chandelier earrings set with princess cut diamonds.
Host Jane Lynch might be best known for her tracksuit-clad role as Sue Sylvester on Glee, but at the Emmy’s, she ditched the sportswear in favor of a plum-colored strapless dress accessorized with a stack of gemstone bangles and a dramatic pair of gemstone earrings. The gemstone-set earring trend was also seen on Kelly Osbourne, Jenna Ushkowitz, Rashida Jones and Amy Poehler, who matched her sapphire earrings to her glittering blue dress.
Other fashionable celebs chose diamond earrings with interesting or unusual shapes. Top Chef host Padma Lakshmi wore sophisticated gold drop earrings with her gold shimmering gown, and Mad Men’s Elizabeth Moss accessorized an intricately beaded illusion neckline with chandelier earrings. Several starlets, such as Andrea Anders, CobieSmulders, Julia Stiles, and Claire Danes, chose oval-shaped earrings as a fun take on the traditional round hoop.
Finally, no Emmy’s earring recap would be complete without a mention of Boardwalk Empire star Paz de la Huerta’s enormous triangle-shaped earrings. Like many items in the new star’s wardrobe, this dramatic look is not something most people will want to try at home!
