There's a Sneaky Reason the Emmys Had Fewer Jewels Than You'd Expect

Aug 26 2014 - 6:00am

Just add shoes: that's the mantra stars like Gwen Stefani [1] and Minnie Driver [2] seemed to be adhering to when they dressed for tonight's Emmy Awards [3]. And why not? When your look is as glam as these designs, there's no need to embellish with too many fancy fixtures. So whether it was a jeweled neckline or a glistening belt, these dresses with built-in jewelry were just about all the sparkle they needed!

Gwen Stefani in Versace

Bold gold bars (and a little arm candy) substituted heavy neckwear when Gwen Stefani [4] channeled her inner Donatella Versace [5].

Sarah Silverman in Marni

Sarah Silverman resisted the urge to add a necklace to her plunging look but opted for her Marni [6] gown's sparkling belt instead.

Claire Danes

More was more in the case of red when Claire Danes [7] framed her face with Givenchy [8]'s floral wreath.

Kate Mara in J. Mendel

Rather than a bib necklace, Kate Mara added just the right amount of glitz to her J. Mendel gown with a jewel-encrusted illusion neckline.

Minnie Driver in Marchesa

Minnie Driver [9] drew our eyes to all the right places with her plunging crystal-studded neckline.

Kiernan Shipka in Antonio Berardi

Kiernan Shipka's Antonio Berardi [10] cocktail dress took the heavyweight prize for waist embellishments.
