‘Mad Men’ Costumes Snubbed for Emmy Nomination: ‘Mad Men’ vs. ‘Downton Abbey’ Style (PHOTOS)
The 2012 Emmy Nominees were announced July 19, and shocker — AMC’s Mad Men has been snubbed despite its trend-setting costume designs.
Instead the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences decided the English series, Downton Abbey, has more stand out apparel to ooh and ah over.
But which series has created more fashion buzz around town?
Celebs love their 60s-inspired pieces — some faves being dresses that cinch at the waist, cropped pants, shrunken cardigans. Social media sites such as Pinterest have pages purely devoted to the seductive style.
And retail power houses, including The Gap and cosmetics brand Estee Lauder, have launched limited-edition collections reflecting the retro look.
Legendary designer, Ralph Lauren, even played the Downton Abbey soundtrack in the background of his fall runway show.
Looks like there’s some competition brewing in the midst of these two hit shows.
Watch the video below to learn more about how these shows are influencing fashion.
