As I have been a lot lately I am running behind so I am going to just get right into these wishes.Earlier this year I had no idea who Betty Gilpin was, but I have slowly started to learn who she is and what her style is. She has rocked looks from Roland Mouret, Alex Perry, and Zac Posen on major red carpets over the last nine months and since she is nominated for her very FIRST Emmy Award for her performance in GLOW I wanted to make sure she made her first appearance on one of my wish lists. I decided to go for a real dramatic and glamorous moment for the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series nominee and when it comes to dramatic and glamorous moments on the Emmy Awards I’m not sure if anyone has had as many as Zac Posen, so since Betty wore a suit from his line at the MTV Movie & TV Awards earlier this year I thought picking this navy Zac Posen Resort 2019 tulle gown which features a plunging neckline, ruched bodice, and a flared mermaid skirt would be the perfect moment for Betty to rock on the Emmy Awards red carpet. She is one of the two main contenders in the category so I want Betty to be on top form just in case she adds a shiny gold trophy as an accessory during the show. Aside from the Emmy I would style this gown with a pair of multi tone blue Aquazzura ‘Very Holli’ strappy sandals, a sleek updo, smokey eyes, red lips, and a pair of Harry Winston diamond and sapphire cluster earrings to really make this that dramatic and glamorous moment I want from Betty on her first Emmy’s red carpet. Ellie Kemper may not be nominated for an Emmy this year for her performance in The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, but it would surprise me if she isn’t on the red carpet support her show which is nominated for Outstanding Comedy Series. Ellie loves bold colors and prints on the red carpet, even for really formal occasions, so I wanted to keep that alive with the gown I want to see her wearing for the Emmy’s this year. I love this white Sachin + Babi Spring 2019 RTW strapless column gown which features rainbow beaded horizontal stripes and I definitely think that is something right up Ellie’s ally. In fact I had originally picked something else for her to wear for this years Emmy’s but when I saw this lookbook pop up with the new collections from New York Fashion Week I knew that I had to change it up because this is just too perfect. I think that this gown would be perfectly styled for the Emmy’s red carpet with a wavy bob hairstyle, defined eyes, red lips, a yellow velvet Tyler Ellis ‘Perry’ clutch, gold Giuseppe Zanotti ‘Sophie’ sandals, and 18k gold set diamond flower earrings from Beladora. Will Keri Russell upset last years winner Elisabeth Moss to take home the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series trophy on Monday? Anything is possible. The members of the Television Academy have been known to award shows and casts in their final season, especially if they won in the beginning, and I feel like with this past season of The Americans being its last that we could see Keri take home that golden trophy on Monday. I want to see her in high style whether she wins or not. She isn’t really my favorite person to see on a red carpet, but when I was picking looks for this red carpet and I saw this black Elie Saab Fall 2018 Couture tuxedo which features an beaded sheer lace peplum tuxedo jacket with attached train and a pair of skinny black ankle length pants I thought it would be a really chic moment for Keri to rock on this red carpet. She doesn’t push the boundaries and while this tuxedo pushes her boundaries a little I think that it still falls inside her comfort zone. A sleek low bun, defined eyes, red lips, a pair of black Christian Louboutin ‘Multidita’ strappy lace pumps, a black Judith Leiber Couture coffered rectangle clutch bag, and Harry Kotlar ‘The Vault’ diamond and emerald drop earrings all would make a really chic moment for Keri to bring to this red carpet.Millie Bobby Brown might be the face of Moncler’s Fall 2018 ad campaign, but it doesn’t seem to be affecting her relationship with Calvin Klein, and if her sitting front row at the Calvin Klein Spring 2019 show during New York Fashion Week a few days ago says anything I would bet that we will see her wearing a custom gown from the brand on the red carpet at the Emmy’s on Monday. I love Millie. She is dramatic, glamorous, and age appropriate and I want to see her really have another chic moment on the red carpet on Monday. Last year she rocked a tulle tea length princess gown by Calvin and this year I went for her first floor length red carpet moment with this custom black Calvin Klein by Appointment which features ruffled cap sleeves and a full skirt. This gown takes the shapes as presented in the brands Fall 2018 RTW collection and make them chic and glamorous for the red carpet. Millie hasn’t had a floor length gown moment since she burst onto the scene just over a year ago and what better place for that to happen than the red carpet at the Emmy Awards? I think that the volume of this gown would need sleek styling to make sure that it is perfectly complimented so I would have Millie pair this gown with a sleek low bun, smokey eyes, nude lips, a pair of black Calvin Klein ‘Camelle’ asymmetrical crystal embellished sandals, and a single Messika ‘Solena Maya Mono’ diamond fringe ear cuff to really ensure this look is perfection. Sara Bareilles is nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Limited Series or Movie and while she was fantastic in Jesus Christ Superstar! Live I don’t think that she is going to be the one who is going to take the trophy home. I do however still want to see her give a chic and glamorous moment on the Emmy Awards red carpet on Monday. I went round and round about what to pick for Sara and wasn’t really thrilled with anything, but I saw this burgundy and gold Pamella Roland Resort 2019 crepe gown which features a sheath silhouette with a sequin bodice and floral embroidery and thought it would be a really glamorous moment for her to wear on this red carpet. I think that the modesty panel at the slight v on the neckline would either have to be removed or really match Sara’s skin tone to not be a point of contention, but I know that the team who handle the VIP PR for Pamella Roland would make sure that isn’t an issue and aside from that add old Hollywood waves, defined eyes, antique rose pink lips, burgundy Casadei crossover strap sandals, and a pair of IVY New York rhodolite, spinel, and diamond drop earrings and this will be a very chic and flirty moment for Sara. Tracee Ellis Ross took in the Valentino Fall 2018 Couture collection front row and I have been dying to see her wearing the brands looks on the red carpet ever since. She had talked about tearing up when she saw the marigold taffeta gown that closed the show and I was originally going to put that in this wish list, but then Beyonce grabbed it up for her On The Run II tour wardrobe and that idea died. I decided to pick another gown from that collection for Mrs Ross, who is nominated for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series, with this red sleeveless gown which features beaded striped and dark red velvet panels on the mermaid hem. I originally had picked this gown for Julianne Moore to wear for anything, but I definitely think that Tracee would make this the truly major moment that I know it could be on the red carpet. It is modern and dramatic and I think that with some sort of braided updo, defined eyes, red lips, a red Judith Leiber Couture ‘Siam’ faceted clutch, a pair of red velvet Alexandre Vauthier ‘Yasmin’ crystal buckled sandals, and Harry Winston diamond and ruby cluster earrings that Tracee would be one of the best dressed of the night.
The 2018 Emmy Awards will take place on Monday September 17, 2018.
