What do Zoe Kravitz, Priyanka Chopra and Keri Russell have in common? Apart from being among the best dressed at the Emmys this year, the three actors also chose to attend the awards ceremony in dresses that bore a liberal trimming of feathers. And in runways from New York to Paris, design houses such as Miu Miu and Balenciaga have also punctuated their collections with plumes, in both subtle and exaggerated ways. We compile a selection of accessories, shoes and dresses that will enable you to get in on the action. Here’s our pick, from Jimmy Choo to Valentino Garavani:
