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

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

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.

Zodiac Inspired Indian Fashion – Aries, Leo, Sagittarius (Fire Signs)

Everyone knows a fiery personality when they meet one, and a fire sign’s closet tends to reflect the same bold passion. Just for fun, we’ve paired each of the fire signs with an outfit or accessory from our collection that matches its outgoing personality and vibe. Here’s Luxemi’s Indian fashion horoscope for Aries, Leo and Sagittarius.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Leos are social butterflies who have plenty of confidence and ambition to go around. They exude warmth and generally bring a loving attitude to their daily lives. Given their glow and positive aura, it’s not surprising that Leo is associated with gold or orange tones. Want to bring out your inner confidence and warmth? This Pumpkin Saree with Kundan Stone Work is the perfect way to let Leo’s confidence and charm shine. It’s a bold look worthy of celebrity Leos like Halle Berry, Sandra Bullock, Charlize Theron and Madonna.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

A philosopher and explorer by nature, the fiercely independent Sagittarius craves freedom. People with this sign are usually positive, kindhearted and enthusiastic toward life, and are often depicted as wearing purple. If you’re a Sagittarius, you’re in good company: Scarlett Johansson, Christina Aguilera, Katie Holmes and Tyra Banks are born under the Sagittarius sign. Want your wardrobe to reflect your sense of adventure? This Striped Saree with Contrast Blouse by Satya Paul has chic orange and white stripes that travel perfectly throughout free-flowing georgette.

Aries (March 21- April 19)

One of the most courageous of all the signs, Aries is known to be independent, enthusiastic and generous. Lady Gaga, Victoria Beckham, Sarah Jessica Parker and Reese Witherspoon all fall under this strong sign. To match Aries’ go-getter attitude, there’s nothing like a powerful red look. From its red and blue contrast to its heavily embellished border, this Navy Pink Georgette Gota Border Saree packs a strong punch. And to finish off this powerful warrior look, Luxemi loves these Gladiator-inspired Sterling Silver Engraved Hanging Earrings.

Whether you’re a lovable Leo or a strong Sagittarius, Luxemi has the perfect saree or salwar to let your personality shine. Want more fashion inspiration? Check out Luxemi’s full collection of sarees, salwars and accessories. We’re sure you’ll find one to leave you starry-eyed.
