2012 Emmys Inspired Fashion – New Girl, Girls, Mad Men, Boardwalk Empire

Is it just us, or are there a lot of fashionable women on Emmy nominated shows this year? From Zooey Deschanel and Christina Hendricks to Kelly MacDonald and Jemima Kirke, these women not only give stellar performances, they each have very distinct style sense that we love. Here are some Luxemi looks inspired by these ladies’ iconic, Emmy-worthy performances.

Zooey Deschanel – Jess Day, The New Girl

2012 Emmys Primetime style Zooey Deschanel

Whether it’s a quirky tuxedo manicure or a vintage peplum waist gown, Zooey Deschanel’s fashion choices always echo the singer-actress’ funky retro vibe. And the same goes for Jess Day in “The New Girl.” Our pick for Zooey and her quirky New Girl counterpart is this 1960s-inspired Turquoise Saree with White Patterns. The white paisley gives this darling chiffon saree just the right hint of retro to mirror Zooey’s style.

Christina Hendricks – Joan Harris, Mad Men 

Madmen inspired Indian fashion saree salwar suit

The big surprise of the 2012 Primetime Emmys nominations is that Mad Men Costume Designer Janie Bryant was snubbed for the first time in the show’s five seasons. Still, there’s no denying the strong style that she outfits Christina Hendricks in to convey Joan Harris’ power and sex appeal. This Coral Wrap by Nikasha has a wrap fit that would accentuate Joan’s curves and undeniable 1960s flair. And the fact that it’s in Joan’s signature red makes it an even better fit for Sterling Cooper Draper’s sultry office manager.

Kelly MacDonald – Margaret Schroeder, Boardwalk Empire

Boardwalk Empire 1920s inspird Indian style

We love how Margaret’s style evolved in the second season of “Boardwalk Empire,” turning her from a modest (yet still chic) housewife into a sophisticated fashionista who embraces the era’s elaborate flapper style. This gorgeous, coppery Net Saree with Beaded Applique channels the era’s penchant for beading and shimmer while still reflecting the sophistication of Margaret and Irish actress Kelly MacDonald.

Jemima Kirke – Jessa, Girls

Girls HBO show inspired Indian accessories Jessa

No show this year has captured the twenty-something culture quite like HBO’s “Girls.” Each of the show’s girls has a distinct style, making it difficult for us to pick a favorite from this New York City foursome, but there’s something about ultra Bohemian Jessa that we’re definitely feeling. To portray Jessa’s eclectic, funky style, Jemima Kirke wears everything from oversized bangles and unconventional earrings and pairs them with flowing pants and feather-embellished coats. To put an Indian spin on Jessa’s style, we love these artful Kashmiri Kundan Wrap Around Earrings paired with this bold Turquoise Lotus Bracelet with Sapphires.

Whether it’s Jessa’s hip, eclectic edge or Margaret’s flapper flair, Luxemi can help you capture all the television the fashion statements you just can’t live without. We can’t wait to see which of these ladies wins big on the 64th Primetime Emmy Awards Red Carpet.

1920s Jewelry Trend: Great Gatsby with an Indian Twist

With the much-anticipated Great Gatsby remake hitting theaters soon and celebs walking the Red Carpet in flapper-inspired gowns, the 1920s are roaring back into style. Luxemi loves how the big screen version of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic novel is inspiring chic twists on Art Deco style. Here’s our short list of the 1920s jewelry looks you should be wearing right now!

Nothing says flapper more than a chic, sequined headband. And when Charlize Theron wore a vintage 1920s Cartier headband to the 2012 Golden Globes, the Young Adult actress catapulted the accessory into the fashion spotlight. Michelle Williams and Taylor Swift wear the headband look to a tee, but we think Nicole Richie does this flapper accessory the most justice. We love the Indian inspired drape of her gold charm headband and can’t help but see its striking resemblance to this Circular Gold Bridal Headpiece in the Luxemi collection.

Another to-die-for 1920s look we’ve been spotting a lot lately is a heavy pearl strand necklace with an oversized drop pendant. Mandy Moore won rave reviews when she wore a statement necklace featuring five strands of massive pearls and a diamond cluster pendant while she was promoting her film Tangled. Given the necklace’s perfect mix of Art Deco sophistication and bling, we could easily imagine F. Scott Fitzgerald’s infamous party girl wife, Zelda Fitzgerald, wearing a similar look during a glamorous night out with her husband. For your own spin on the pearl and diamond statement necklace, try our Deco Style Crystal and Pearl Set. With subtle pearls, a clover-shaped pendant and ample crystals and black drops, this necklace makes a bold but fun 1920s statement.

When Bridesmaids star Kristen Wiig hit the 84th Annual Academy Awards Red Carpet wearing stacked 1920s diamond bracelets, she made it on our best jewelry at the Oscar’s list. The sleek, geometric quality of Kristen’s bracelets is a major trend in accessories right now, and what makes this style even better is that there’s also a bit of Indian influence in the stacked bracelet look! Want Indian inspired 1920s jewelry in seconds? Stack four of our Diamonique Bracelets with Diamond Patterns, slip on your favorite tikka, and transform into the vision of 1920s Indian vogue.

Whether you’re head over heels for the 1920s or stuck on the 1960s, Luxemi can help you find your signature retro style. Have you seen any other Great Gatsby looks on the runways or Red Carpets lately? Let us know!
