Emmy Inspiration

The Emmys were last night and although I wasn't here to watch it, I love looking at the photos for the hair, make-up and fashion. It's interesting how trends translate into the bridal world. For example, I noticed a TON of "mermaid" or "fit&flare" style dresses on the red carpet. This has been a strong and growing trend in the bridal gown world for the last few seasons and I think it will only continue to increase. Depending on your shape it can really accentuate your curves and make you look very womanly or it can hit you in all the wrong places and make your thighs look gigantic. Katherin Heigl and Debra Messing sport the look below but you can also check out Becki Newton, Ana Ortiz, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, and Mary-Louis Parker.

The next trend I'm super excited about is SHORT HAIR! O.k., well fake short hair but still short! A lot of stars wore their long locks tucked so that they looked like short styles. I have short hair and I tried to grow it long for the wedding, but honestly it drove me CRAZY and it just wasn't me so I cut it back to short a few weeks ago. So, now I'm always on the look-out for good short hairstyles for the wedding. Rebecca Romajin and Jennifer Morrison are rocking the short hair below but for more examples check out Eva Longoria, Heidi Klum, Sandra Oh, and Ellen Pompeo. If you have long hair the one thing I noticed most was the overall lack of updos and the lack of structure. Whether it was straight or curly the hair was very natural, loose, not overdone, and almost even...messy. Updos might always be the top hairstyle for weddings but I bet we'll see some more more natural waves or stick straight styles this season.

There are a ton of other trends you can see from the red carpet...red lips, natural lips, heavy eyeliner, high slit dresses, etc, etc. These might be the looks you'll see brides striving for this season.
