Emmy Awards 2013:
Emmys Insider: They Made It Just For Me!
"This gown is all about transparency, lightness, and movement," says CEO and creative director Gilles Mendel. And every inch of the silk tulle J. Mendel dress he created was dreamy, from its sunburst pleating to the corseted bodice, which alone took 20 hours to drape. The 'Revenge' beauty carried a gray crocodile Judith Leiber clutch worth $3,495. But what made the Emmy presenter twinkle? The bow-shaped Van Cleef & Arpels Couture Collection bracelet of 275 diamonds.
Evangeline Lilly swept onto the red carpet at The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug premiere in a black slightly sheer Alberta Ferretti gown with a lace overlay and tiers of tulle at the skirt, keeping all accessories to a minimum, save for studs and a gold bracelet.
