Inspiration Behind the Design: Brooke Anderson’s Emmy Awards Dress

maternity dress

Brooke Anderson, co-host of Entertainment Tonight, was simply gorgeous in her custom-made silk crepe gown by A Pea in the Pod at the 2013 Emmy Awards! Rocking the red carpet, Brooke worked her look to the nines as she interviewed the nominees and mingled with Hollywood’s brightest stars.

Fashion-forward purple accessories, including gorgeous suede d’Orsay pumps by Manolo Blahnik, Bellarri jewels and deeply-hued nails, added the perfect amount of depth to compliment her red-hot look. A Pea in the Pod Associate Designer, Susie Hawkins, explains her vision:

For Brooke’s Emmy red carpet dress we wanted to design something that really expressed Brooke’s love of fashion and showed her personality, without hiding her baby bump. Fiery bright cherry red was all over the runways at New York Fashion Week and is very on-trend for the current season, and it suits Brooke’s coloring very well. High slits were also prominent on the runways, and provided a perfect way to interpret the peplum trend. We wanted to keep the cut and lines of the dress very sleek and modern, and the silk crepe lends the structure needed for this sophisticated shape.”

Sexy and sophisticated all in one, Brooke’s entire look is one to covet from head-to-toe. Shop our red carpet-ready maternity dresses from A Pea in the Pod!

Denim Do: Destructed

Whether in dark, light or medium wash, destructed denim gives off a covetable vibe of effortlessly cool. We adore a rip here and there in skinny and boyfriend styles, perfect for both casual and dressed-up outings. For day, pair with a chunky knit in an autumnal color and suede camel-colored booties; when the sun sets, go for a black top with lace or leather detailing, a cropped moto jacket and chunky heels.
