I did have a plan to get this set of Emmy Wishes yesterday, but life got in the way. Instead of cutting those wishes off I decided that I would just push them to today. I did have the leeway to do that. I took the day off to make sure that I was accomplishing what I needed to do in my personal life and still be able to give my full self when I am at my day job. Sometimes you just need to close the laptop, go get into bed, and binge watch Downton Abbey episodes. But here I am making sure that I am putting my wishes out there into the universe for the red carpet at the 2019 Emmy Awards. Ava DuVernay is nominated for Outstanding Directing for a Limited Series, Movie, or Dramatic Special and Outstanding Writing for a Limited Series, Movie, or Dramatic Special thanks to her Netflix limited series When They See Us, which is also nominated for Outstanding Limited Series. I definitely think that she is a very likely candiate to take home at least one Emmy this year. I want to see her do a chic look with this black Celine Fall 2019 RTW chiffon gown which features a high neck and a caped blouse. Celine is a bit of an unexpected choice for Ava because Heidi Slimane is not exactly known for embracing diversity or women with curves in his shows, but when I was looking for the perfect gown for Ava to wear on this red carpet this one just kept sticking in the back of my mind. So I decided to say why not? If I don’t put the wish out into the universe it will never happen. Now this all being said Ava co-chairs the Prada Diversity Initiative board and we will most likely see her wearing a custom Prada gown on this red carpet. I would style this black Celine gown for Ava with a high bun of dreads, defined eyes, nude lips, a black Jimmy Choo ‘Cloud’ velvet clutch embellished with dark green crown jewels, a pair of black velvet Jimmy Choo ‘Love’ pointed toe crystal necklace detail pumps, and chic statement white diamond and emerald David Webb ‘Cross River’ disc earrings to make this a major moment for her to deliver on this red carpet. Catherine Zeta Jones is always a big supporter of her husband Michael Douglas. He is nominated for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series for his role in The Kominsky Method (a performance that has already won him a Golden Globe Award) and will be presenting. So I wonder if, and am hoping, that Catherine will be on the red carpet with him. Now I believe what Catherine will wear on this red carpet will depend on if she is a presenter or just a plus one. Either way I want to see Catherine take the go big or go home mentality wearing this ruby red velvet Zuhair Murad Fall 2019 Couture column gown which features cold shoulders, belted waist, straight neckline, and a cape with pleated chiffon and velvet panels. I adore this gown as presented on the runway and can just imagine that Catherine turning this into a major regal moment on the Emmy Awards red carpet. A sleek vintage inspired bun updo, defined eyes, matching lips, a pair of red silk Giuseppe Zanotti bow detail ankle strap sandals, and dazzling Chopard Red Carpet Collection 2019 white diamond and ruby waterfall chandelier earrings would definitely make this that regal moment that I am craving from Catherine on this red carpet. Famke Jensen appears in the Outstanding Limited Series nominated Netflix series When They See Us. I have long been a fan of Famke’s style on the red carpet and I am hoping that she delivers her top form glam on the red carpet at the 2019 Emmy Awards if she attends to support her nominated project. The new Spring 2020 collections might have just come down the New York Fashion Week runways (best of lists to come!), but I am going back to the Prabal Gurung Fall 2019 RTW collection for the gown I most want to see Famke deliver on this red carpet. I fell in love with this black and white Prabal Gurung ‘Kingston’ velvet gown which is designed with a ruffled V-neck in an A-line silhouette. The fitted bodice is decorated with contrasting ruffles around the shoulders while the full skirt adds dimension for a flattering silhouette and I believe that this “modern vintage” inspired gown would be an absolutely gorgeous moment on Famke especially if styled with a sleek side pared updo, smokey eyes, red lips, a black Judith Leiber Couture ‘Cayman’ crocodile leather box clutch with a crystal embellished clasp, a pair of black Christian Louboutin ‘Araborda’ peep toe crystal embellished slingback sandals, and dazzling diamonds from Norman Silverman including large stud earrings and a five row collar necklace.Pose star Indya Moore is always one of the coolest girls on the red carpet. She knows how to deliver major looks and carry some of the edgier moments on the red carpet. She is also a big Louis Vuitton girl. So when I was thinking of the perfect look for Indya to wear on the Emmy Awards red carpet I knew I had the ability to pick something really out there and fashion forward. Enter this Louis Vuitton Resort 2020 ensemble which features a black art deco trompe de l’oeil ruffle pointed crop top embellished with crystal beading and a pair of high waisted slim fit pants. I LOVE this look. It is super glam, modern, and extra. These are all things that I am drawn to and I feel like Indya could deliver on this red carpet at the Emmy Awards. A sleek high ponytail, smokey eyes, red lips, and a pair of black Louis Vuitton ‘Call Back’ pointed toe pumps with a silver crystal embellished cap toe would definitely make this a major Best of the Emmy’s worthy moment. Julia Garner is definitely one to watch on this red carpet. She is growing better and better with each red carpet she walks and I am expecting something wow from her on the 2019 Emmy Awards red carpet. I decided to go the custom route for Julia having my custom designer create this custom deep blue Gucci silk and lace gown which features a high neck, sleeveless bodice, a crystal bow on the waist, a pleated a-line skirt, and a dramatic train. The gown is inspired by the lace we saw from a look in the Gucci Resort 2020 collection and I definitely believe that this custom gown could be an absolutely gorgeous moment for Julia to deliver on the Emmy’s red carpet. A fingerwave updo, a thin diamond headband, defined eyes, soft pink lips, a pair of silver Gucci ‘Crawford’ nappa metallic leather sandals with crystal fringe and flower chain detail, and a selection of vintage jewels from Beladora including a pair of diamond flower earrings in blackened 18k gold and a statement art deco diamond bracelet would definitely make this the moment I am so desperately hoping we see from Julia on this red carpet.
The 2019 Emmy Awards will take place on Sunday September 22, 2019.
