From the huge sweep of Breaking Bad to the heart wrenching Robin Williams tribute, the Emmy Awards were full of beautiful moments. While the show is great for TV aficionados, it is also perfect for fashion spotting. If you haven’t already, be sure to scan all the fabulous photos of the stars and their stunning couture.
Of course with bridal fashion on the mind, I was taken by how many dresses were perfect for the mother of the bride. Depending on the bride’s length of leash, there are a number of beautiful outfits to fit the day that can exemplify your style as well. Where better to find inspiration for your MOB or MOG dress than on a red carpet?
