Emmys fashion isn’t just about Sunday’s big red carpet arrivals—the whole weekend is filled with fun parties to dress up for. And one popular look that leading ladies love is lace in eye-popping hues. “I’m really feeling lace at the moment,” Revenge star Ashley Madekwe (in Kain) told InStyle.com at the BAFTA Los Angeles TV Tea. “I told that to my stylist, Joey Tierney, when we pulled looks, and she came up with this.” Her teal dress fell in line with other vibrant designs, like Nina Dobrev‘s white lace Zuhair Murad, Taylor Swift‘s red French Connection looks for the iHeartRadio Music Festival, and Girls star Allison Williams‘s neon pink floral lace tank top by Oscar de la Renta for the Variety and Women in Film Pre-Emmy Event. “I love to wear color because I wear black all day every day when I’m at home,” Madekwe added. “So when I go out, it’s nice to wear some color.” Perhaps we’ll see more bright lace looks on the Emmys red carpet.
