16 Home Designs Inspired by Jessica Pare’s Emmys Dress

by Grace Bonney

I’ve never been much of an award show watcher. They were an essential part of my childhood, mainly because I loved watching the red carpet arrivals with my Mom and talking about what we liked and didn’t like. But as I’ve gotten older (and no longer live in the same state as my favorite TV companion) I find myself unable to sit through even the fashion-filled opener. That said, I’m never one to miss a recap. So on Monday morning I found myself drinking coffee and furiously flipping through slideshows online looking at all the best and worst looks from the night. The one look that really stuck with me (aside from how sleek and cool Elisabeth Moss looked) was Jessica Pare’s incredible Oscar de la Renta dress.

Was it the best cut on her? I’ll let the GoFugYourself crowd tackle that one, but for me, the color was a clear winner. So today I decided to take my inspiration from that incredible dress and create a collection that fit the mood- and hue- of her Emmys look. Mullet dress or not, I would wear that sucker in a heartbeat. In the meantime (and in real life) I’ll just compile these home goods to recreate the look in a way that’s less TV and more me. xo, grace
