Affordable Red-Carpet Style From A Pro

Like us, your Emmy-watching coverage probably included at least two hours of red-carpet action prior to the main attraction. And, even if you weren't into any of the nominees — or don't regularly find yourself glued to the tube — it's a super-fun way to scoop some major wardrobe inspiration without leaving your couch. Key word: inspiration, because while you may not have a personal stylist or the bank account to facilitate the exact outfit, you can definitely pull off something similar that looks nothing less than Hollywood glam.

So, to get you started, Corri McFadden — the fashion-forward face behind luxury consignment biz eDrop-Off — curated five fabulous ensembles inspired by her favorite Emmy red-carpet starlets: Taylor Schilling, Allison Williams, Kiernan Shipka, Christina Hendricks, and Claire Danes. McFadden even dressed down some of the looks because, you know, there are only so many occasions a gal can wear a floor-length frock — gotta get that bang for the buck, ladies.
