Dianna Agron fell off the red carpet circuit for a while but reappeared recently during the Giffoni Film Festival wearing a cute Prada printed frock to promote ‘The Family’ at the festival. If there is a big premiere anywhere in the world, one is not slated in LA or London to my knowledge at this moment, I think that this navy blue Carolina Herrera Resort 2014 strapless cocktail dress with a large lace hem would be the perfect look on her. The dress is simple yet lady like which is the kind of look that Dianna wears best. Complete the look with a pair of white sandals and a simple hairstyle and Dianna will definitely have a winning look on her hands.
Michelle Pfeiffer is one of those women like Jane Fonda and Helen Mirren who just seem to get better and better with age and not resort the the stereotypical old lady frocks and still know how to exude sex appeal in their fifties and sixties. For a premiere of ‘The Family’ I think that this black and gold Donna Karan Resort 2014 top and skirt are perfect for the 55 year old actress with out being too matronly and still keeping a hint of sex appeal. Finish the look with a pair of black pumps and a black and gold clutch and Michelle will have all eyes on her as she walks the red carpet.
At any of the major red carpets, be it the Golden Globe, SAG, Grammy, Academy, or Emmy Awards, the E! Live from the Red Carpet team usually dons two looks one for the Countdown to the Red Carpet and one for the actual red carpet. Guliana Rancic is the lead lady on the red carpet with Ryan Seacrest during the actual red carpet and is front and center with her ‘Fashion Police’ co-stars Kelly Osbourne and George Kotsiopoulos during the pre-show. During the pre-show we get to see more of what Guliana is wearing so I chose to put the skinny Italian beauty in this Zuhair Murad Resort 2014 flowing chiffon gown. I think that this dress is absolutely amazing and I think that it would be the perfect look for the pre-show. For the red carpet where you usually just see G from about the bust line up I think that this red Andrew Gn Resort 2014 strapless gown with an elegant embellished bust would be perfect yet simple as to not totally steal the show from the celebrities that she is interviewing. As Guliana only has like 3 minuites to completely change I think that pairing both dresses with a pair of gold Jimmy Choo embellished sandals and a few select yellow gold and diamond jewels and she will have her perfect looks for the 2013 Emmy Awards.
Guliana’s ‘Fashion Police’ co-star Kelly Osbourne will also be seen at the 2013 Emmy Awards during the live E! coverage with the pre-show and the live red carpet. For the pre-show I think that this amazing grey Pamella Roland Fall 2013 RTW one shoulder mermaid gown would be perfect for the purple haired star. While I am not a supporter of her massive purple growth that she sports growing out of her head but I do not see it changing any time soon. And for the live red carpet event where we will most likely see Kelly sitting on a balcony over looking the red carpet commenting on the red carpet looks of all of the celebrities I would love to see her wear this watercolor purple Dennis Basso Resort 2014 ballgown. This dress would look really pretty puffed out while she is sitting in her directors chair. Again, like Guliana, she doesn’t have that much time to change so I am going to recomend that Kelly wear a pair of silver Giuseppe Zanotti sandals and some simple diamond accessories in her ears and wrist and Kelly will have her winning looks for the event.
Cat Deeley has been a regular on the Emmy Awards red carpet and here, like most of her red carpet appearances, she almost exclusively wears Monique Lhuillier. I am going to be surprised if she chooses another brand to wear for this years ceremony where she is nominated for Outstanding Host in a Reality Series for her position on ‘So You Think You Can Dance.’ I think that this navy blue embellished Monique Lhuillier Resort 2014 gown is perfect for the blonde British actress. This is a sexy yet elegant gown that Cat would just look perfect on the red carpet with a black Edie Parker clutch, a pair of black embellished sandals, and some simple diamond accessories.
Last year Heidi Klum took to the red carpet at the 2012 Emmy Awards wearing an aqua blue Alexandre Vauthier gown with head to toe accessories that matched perfectly. She looked like German sex-pot Barbie and at 40 that just doesn’t work anymore. Heidi can still be sexy but doesn’t need to dress like she is 25 anymore. I think that this white Alexandre Vauthier Fall 2013 Couture gown with a deep v, broad shoulders, long sleeves, and a thigh high slit would be the perfect choice to still be sexy yet sophisticated. Complete this look with a pair of silver Christian Louboutin sandals, some stunning Lorraine Schwartz earrings, and a statement Lorraine Schwartz cocktail ring and I believe that Heidi will redeem herself on the red carpet.
This is the first time I have featured Anna Chlumsky on If I Was A Stylist and she earned a spot by having been on the red carpet in the past and garnering herself a nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for her HBO Series ‘VEEP.’ I am going into this pick blind basically as she has never really had any major red carpet spots. For the 2013 Emmy Awards I think that this simple red Pamella Roland Fall 2013 RTW gown would be the perfect choice. It’s a simple dress that would look at place on any awards show red carpet. Keep the look simple with a black clutch and black pumps like I am sure that she will do and Anna will have a very pretty look for the 2013 Emmy Awards red carpet.
Jane Lynch is a hysterical actress but has a very boxy build that a lot of the time she tries to over compensate on the red carpet with very girly gowns which just do not suit her. For the 2013 Emmy Awards, ‘Glee’s’ Sue Sylvester, nominated for the role for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series, should grab up this dove-y lavender Rami Al Ali Fall 2013 Couture gown. Jane has snatched up a few gowns by the designer in the past and usually had a good result. I think that this gown is the perfect mix of Jane’s laid back style and a glamorous gown. Keep the look simple by just adding a pair of silver satin pumps and maybe a matching clutch but that is is to keep this look as simple as possible as Jane looks her best when she keeps things simple.
‘Modern Family’ star Julie Bowen is one of my favorite television stars to see on the red carpet because she really tries to keep up with the hard hitting Hollywood stars. For the 2013 Emmy Awards where she is nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for her hit television comedy I would love to see her wear this Andrew Gn Resort 2014 ballgown. I think that this gown with its green and yellow bustier and black skirt is perfect for the event and for Julie. Finish the look with a yellow clutch, a pair of black sandals, and some stunning diamond jewelry and Julie will have an absolutely amazing red carpet ensemble for the 2013 Emmy Awards.
Christina Hendricks has not had a good few years on the red carpet. As a voluptuous woman with large breasts and stunning nonconformist curves, she has had a hard time finding designs that compliment her body shape and when the do they usually do not compliment her pink complexion. For the 2013 Emmy Awards where Christina is nominated yet again for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series for her role in the hit AMC television show ‘Mad Men’ I would love to see her take to the red carpet in this wine red Romona Kevesa Fall 2013 RTW gown that would hug her in all the right places and not make her look like she is over exposing or dumpy. Finish this look with matching satin pumps and a matching Judith Leiber crystal encrusted clutch would be the way that I would complete this look to send Christina back to the best dressed lists.
In the past two years Christine Baranski, who is nominated for Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series for ‘The Good Wife,’ has brought two very different looks to the red carpet. In 2011 Christine wore a navy blue Zac Posen structured gown and in 2012 she wore a sparkling gold sequined mini dress. And I just think that for this type of an event a gown is a requirement. For this years ceremony I would love to see her wear this magenta Marchesa Fall 2013 RTW gown, which did not appear on the runway but was sold with the collection in pre-order from ModaOperandi.com. I think that this sophisticated design is perfect for Christine who has an elegant look about her. I would have this made to hit the floor removing the slight fishtail hem as originally presented so that Christine would look tall and statuesque, like she is at 5’10”, and not short and stumpy. Gold sandals, a gold clutch, and some simple H. Stern jewelry would complete this amazing look for the 2013 Emmy Awards.
Emilia Clarke is one of the nominated actress that I am most looking forward to seeing take to the red carpet. This year Emilia has really gown in her red carpet looks wowing me on several occasions in a bevy of different designers like ZAC Zac Posen, Victoria Beckham, Altuzarra, and Christopher Kane. But for the 2013 Emmy Awards where she is nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series for ‘Game of Thrones’ I would like to see Emilia return to the brand that put her on the fashion map, Chanel. Emilia rocked Chanel for the 2012 Screen Actors Guild and Emmy Awards and I am hoping that now that she has quite a bit of red carpet time on her hands that she will finally don a couture design for the 2013 Emmy Awards. While this navy blue Chanel Spring 2012 Couture might be a few seasons back I would still like to see Emilia wear it as it was a favorite look from this collection that never got snatched up to be donned for the red carpet. A simple satin minaudiere in navy, a pair of navy peep toe pumps, as well as simple Chanel Fine Jewelery diamonds in her ears and on her wrist will complete this amazing red carpet ensemble.
‘Homeland’ star Morena Baccarin, who is nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series for ‘Homeland’, really made her mark on the red carpet when she stepped out on the red carpet at the 2013 Golden Globe Awards wearing a stunning Valentino Couture gown and I am hoping that she keeps up the best dressed looks. For this years Emmy Awards I would love to see Morena wear this silver Zuhair Murad Fall 2013 Couture strapless corseted mermaid gown. On most this gown would look like a tacky pageant ensemble but on Morena Baccarin I think that this would end up looking like a modern nod to old Hollywood. Simple hair, makeup, and jewelry along with a pair of matching Jimmy Choo sandals would be the way that I would complete this look for Morena and definitely secure a place on the best dressed lists around the world.
After faltering from red carpet looks that I love Helen Mirren worked the red carpet and promotional trail for her film ‘RED 2’ last month and I am hoping that she keeps it up coming next month at the 2013 Emmy Awards. As an Academy Award winning actress Helen is one of our hopefuls to bring couture to the red carpet at this event as she is nominated for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Mini-Series or Movie for her HBO film ‘Phil Spector.’ I think that this dove grey Elie Saab Fall 2013 Couture gown would look fantastic on the 68 year old actress. This year Helen has really decided to have fun on the red carpet. At the 2013 BAFTA Awards Helen debuted her pixie cut in a bold way with sugary sweet bubblegum pink hair and at the LA premiere of ‘RED 2’ under her teal Elie Saab gown she wore plexi platform stripper pumps. The youthfulness of this look comes courtesy of an open back that many actress over the age of 45 or 50 would run the other way from but I do not think that this would be the case with Helen. A silver Edie Parker clutch and who knows what shoe could be anything from her plexi stripper shoes to a pair of elegant silver sandals we would just have to wait and see what she pulls out of her hat at the Emmy Awards next month.
Jessica Lange has never been a person that I really look forward to seeing on the red carpet because she usually leaves me indifferent to her looks but I am still going to shoot out a wish for her for the 2013 Emmy Awards where she is nominated for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Mini-Series or Movie for he role in the FX mini series ‘American Horror Story: Asylum.’ This series keeps reinventing itself every season with a whole new story line and characters with just a few members of the cast transferring from season to season. Jessica has been one of those stars that has been with the series from the start. For the 2013 Emmy Awards I would love to see Jessica wear this sapphire blue Georges Hobeika Fall 2013 RTW long sleeved gown. Unlike Helen Mirren, at 64 Jessica likes to cover up on the red carpet and she tends to look pretty just not anything spectacular. A black clutch and a pair of black pumps would be the way that I finish this look off for Jessica for the 2013 Emmy Awards late next month.
The USA series ‘Political Animals’ ended up being a Mini-Series but it has still garnered star Sigourney Weaver a nomination for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Mini-Series or Movie for her role in the series. For this red carpet I would love to see Mrs Weaver wear this Zac Posen Fall 2013 RTW burgundy gown. I think that this is just a simple and sophisticated look for the 63 year old actress. I do not know whether or not I would pair this dress with the cape or not just because I am not sure if its too gimmicky for Sigourney. Many of my long time readers will know that I LOVE a cape on a dress but I am leaning more towards removing it for this look. A dark metallic grey clutch and a pair of matching burgundy pumps would be the way to finish this look with maybe a few select Fred Leighton jewels around the wrist and maybe in the ear.
Sometimes Amy Poehler isn’t the most glamorous woman on the red carpet but she has had her moments and I am hoping that she has one of those moments on the red carpet at the 2013 Emmy Awards. Amy is once again nominated for an Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series for her role in ‘Parks & Recreation.’ I think that this bubblegum pick Badgley Mischka Resort 2014 simple gown with waist ruching and an embellished waist band. I think Amy is at her best when she wears something that isn’t overworked and just a classic design. I think that this color would be the perfect way to infuse some modernity into the ensemble. A simple silver clutch and silver sandals as well as some select simple diamonds for her ears and wrist would complete this look for her for this years Emmy Awards.
Julia Louis-Dreyfus took home the 2012 Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series for her HBO comedy ‘VEEP’ and is nominated again this year in the same category. At last years ceremony Julia wore a stunning maroon Vera Wang gown and looked the best that she ever had so I am wishing for the partnership to follow onto this years event. I think that this Vera Wang Spring 2014 Bridal mermaid gown with a floral pattern embroidery would be perfect for this event. I would change the gown from ivory to be a blue color so that the look doesn’t come off as bridal but I love the shape for Julia. A black clutch, black sandals, and some simple diamond dazzlers would be the way to finish off this custom look.
Oh Lena Dunham what to do with you? I am NOT a fan of her style because she hasn’t learned how to dress her body shape and its sad because I think if she could get it right that she would look beautiful. I think this blue ZAC Zac Posen Resort 2014 gown with a nipped waist and a hip peplum would look really elegant on Lena for the 2013 Emmy Awards. Keep the look simple with a black clutch, black pumps, and very simple jewelry and let Lena take some baby steps to making her way feeling more and more comfortable on the red carpet.
This year will be Tina Fey’s sixth and final nomination for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series for her role as Liz Lemon in the hit NBC comedy ’30 Rock,’ which ended its run earlier this year. I think that for this years awards show that this black rise fall Marchesa Resort 2014 gown would be perfect for Tina. With newer shows like ‘Girls’ and ‘VEEP’ I think that Tina isn’t in the main line to win unless they give her the award because of the shows finale. A simple black clutch and black sandals will give Tina an awards show worthy look but one that isn’t the most visually interesting. I hope that the comedy ladies don’t let me down and work the Emmy’s red carpet.
