I’ve had the Amber Riley (Glee) picture from Emmy Magazine saved on this computer for weeks now, because I HAD to make a post about it. It’s a great dress in general, but I think that it raises an interesting point about how horizontal panels (not necessary stripes) can be flattering to a figure. And really, vertical stripes and panels are not always flattering.

Well, it turns out I’ve found the actual dress she wore, although only on eBay. (22w ADRIANNA PAPELL Black Banded Inset Lace Dress NWT.) All  Adrianna Papell dresses are gorgeous, and she makes a lot of tiered dresses.  (As well as plus size dresses.) Me likey.

Recreate the Look: Emma Pillsbury in Glee ‘Sectionals’

The anatomy of a style scene: Will & Emma Kiss in the Glee episode “Sectionals”

We cheered when Will & Emma kissed. ( Well, I know that I certainly did!) We can’t guarantee you a perfect kiss with the guy of your dreams, but we can tell you how to achieve a similar style look to what Emma Pillsbury wore in that scene. She had a green winter coat which popped nicely against the color of her hair. It’s important to have a statement-making coat (even if the statement is ‘I’m traditional’) because it’s the first thing people often see of you in the winter months. This was paired with a white beret hat. And we suspect her lips were moisturized with a hint of peachy-pink lip balm. Emma looked classic, classy, and ready for love.
