Julia Louis-Dreyfus is nominated yet again in the Best Actress in a Comedy Series thanks to her role as Vice President Selina Meyer in the HBO series “VEEP,” which has won her the award the past two years. Julia has swept this award each year she has been nominated and the speculation is that she will take it home yet again. I would love to see her doing so wearing this stunning royal blue Reem Acra Resort 2015 gown that features a beaded sheer lace cap sleeve bodice and a flowing chiffon skirt. I think that this is a regal, yet sexy, yet sophisticated look that we haven’t yet seen from Julia. She tends to wear her favorite designer, Narciso Rodriguez, for this event and his gowns are all starting to look the same. Especially when on the same person. A simple pair of dyed to match Stuart Weitzman ‘Nudist’ sandals and a pair of simple diamond earrings will finish this look off perfectly, the only other accessory she would need is the Emmy itself.
For the past two years “GIRLS” star Lena Dunham has looked to Muccia Prada to create her Emmy’s gown. Her first drab blue lace gown worn for the 2012 ceremony made her look stumpy and frumpy, and last year at the 2013 ceremony the green and orange floral print gown just didn’t fit her right and the matchy makeup didn’t help. While I don’t believe that Lena will wear the short 1920’s inspired black Prada Resort 2015 cocktail dress with diamante details that is pictured I do believe that she will wear another custom Prada design. Probably one that hails from the same collection. If I were to turn this cocktail ensemble into a gown for Lena, I would remove the sheer sleeves, yoke, and embellished high neckline leaving a spaghetti strap belted dress and of course have it skim the floor with a slight train trailing right behind it. A pair of her signature black pumps, a black Prada satin box clutch, and a fresh face of natural makeup will ensure that Lena continues to learn how to look her best on the red carpet come the 2014 Emmy Awards.
Last year Best Actress in a Comedy Series nominee Taylor Schilling attended that Emmy Awards as a presenter wearing a white hot custom Thakoon gown that solidified her as a red carpet cool girl. This year though being her very first Emmy nomination, and the favorite to upset Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ winning streak, I think that the “Orange is the New Black” star will opt for something much more regal and glamorous. For that reason I have picked the ruby red Zuhair Murad Fall 2014 Couture satin draped strapless gown with a train that billows off from the side. I think that this would be the ultimate winning moment whether she takes home a trophy or not. I would pair this look with a pair of gold sandals, a dyed to match satin box clutch, and simple gold jewels to ensure that Taylor looks regal yet effortless. Also she should go light with the makeup because her face doesn’t wear it well and she ends up looking way over done. I honestly can not wait to see what Taylor will wear come the 2014 Emmy Awards on August 25th!
