Sometimes it can feel like modest and frumpy are synonymous, but these celebrities from the 2013 Emmy Awards proved that is not always the case. Check out some of our favorite modest looks from the red carpet.
Now before we start nit-picking, let me clarify: not all these
dresses are 100 percent modest by LDS standards. But most of them are pretty close, and we applaud these women for choosing to show less skin on the red carpet. Though most of the following dresses would need a few modifications, they can certainly provide inspiration for all of
us in our quest to be both modest and stylish.

Local singer/songwriter Hilary Weeks landed on the Contemporary Christian Billboard Charts with her new album, Say Love, which released last Monday.
She debuted at #9 on the list. Say Love is Week’s 10th album.
It comes two years after her last effort “Every Step”, which made history when it hit five Billboard Charts. Hilary became the first Mormon artist to break the top 10 on the Contemporary Christian Albums Billboard list.
In total, Say Love landed on three Billboard Charts:
• TOP CURRENT CONTEMPORARY CHRISTIAN: #9
• TOP ALBUMS – BILLBOARD TOP 200: #161 (top selling albums, includes every genre)
• TOP CURRENT ALBUMS – SALT LAKE CITY: #2 (#1 in SLC was Keith Urban’s new album Fuse)
Weeks released this statement yesterday: "Breaking the top ten on the Christian Billboard Charts for a second time is an exciting surprise! For me, the most important word in the prior sentence is 'Christian.' It has only been in the last two years that I've been able to say that I charted on Billboard, but I've always been able to declare I am a Christian."

I'm addicted to words. I admit it. I know it would take an extensive twelve-step program to get me off words. But I was beginning to tire of dystopian plot lines and racy romance novels that tried to insert sensuality into the nineteenth century, a time well known for its propriety. So when I found Edenbrooke, by Julianne Donaldson, I felt as if I had hit the clean romance jack pot. And I know you'll be sold too, once you read her writing. And did I mention she's already written a second clean romance novel? I promise that you'll be amazed by these two very different but equally sublime proper romances.
