I am trying to play catch up when it comes to my 2019 Emmy Awards wishes to make sure I get as many looks in for this years red carpet as possible. I haven’t been able to stick to my posting schedule as life has continued to get in the way, but I am trying to hustle and get them out even if it isn’t the most consistent. Julia Louis Dreyfus seems to be the front runner to take home her final Emmy for her performance in VEEP. Over the years I have had a love hate relationship with Julia’s red carpet style. I know she has potential, but she just hasn’t WOWED me in a while. She typically does so wearing simple, sleek, and slinky style gowns. I feel like Julia would definitely be in my good graces if she stepped onto this red carpet wearing this royal blue Jason Wu Collection cascading satin ruffled gown which features a camisole style bodice, a v-neckline, and a column silhouette. This gown is everything that I have described as one of the better angels of Julia’s past red carpet looks and while I did find this gown off the rack at Bergdorf Goodman I think it would be the perfect option for her to bring to life on this red carpet. A sleek updo, defined eyes, red lips, a pair of matching blue Giuseppe Zanotti ‘Neyla’ ankle strap sandals, and simple Niwika ‘Umeutage’ white diamond chandelier earrings would definitely make this a perfect Emmy’s ready red carpet. There is a history that someone grabs a look right off the Marc Jacobs runway from New York Fashion Week to bring to life on the Emmy Awards red carpet. This year I would love to see Naomi Watts be the one to do just that. I feel like it has been a real hot minute since we last saw Naomi deliver a real dazzling moment on the red carpet. So when I saw her name announced as one of the many presenters for Sunday’s Emmy Awards I got really excited. I started thinking of options for her to wear on this red carpet, but all of them were pushed to the side as soon as I saw this gold sequin Marc Jacobs Spring 2020 RTW gown which features a turtleneck bodice with long sleeves and a flared hem skirt. The look just screamed Naomi to me and I can definitely imagine it being an absolutely MAHJOR moment for her to wear on this red carpet. Now it is definitely a super dazzling disco moment and some may not want to wear something like this if they aren’t nominated, but I think that Naomi would know how to make this look the epitome of effortless glam for this red carpet. A sleek updo, defined eyes, nude lips, a pair of gold leather Jimmy Choo ‘Leta’ pointed toe ankle strap pumps, and simple Victorian gold and diamond dart drop earrings from Fred Leighton would definitely make this look the perfect presenter moment for Naomi to wear on this red carpet. Robin Wright is also nominated for her final Emmy for her performance in the Netflix series House of Cards. It has been a while since Robin has walked a major awards show red carpet giving a major look. She is currently dating the head of VIP PR for Saint Laurent, so I would imagine that if we see her on this red carpet Sunday night that Robin will wear a custom look from Saint Laurent. I didn’t have the time to create a custom gown so I was shopping the New York Fashion Week runways looking for the perfect look for Robin to bring to life on the Emmy Awards red carpet. One show I knew I had to watch with the thought of finding a gown for Robin was the Brandon Maxwell Spring 2020 RTW show. Now while I didn’t exactly find a gown for Robin to wear on this red carpet I did fall in love with her wearing this black strapless palazzo pant tuxedo inspired jumpsuit from the same collection. It wouldn’t be the first time that Robin has worn pants for an Emmy Awards red carpet, but this look is different from some of the other pants looks that Robin has worn in the past as it gives more of a gown effect than the looks she typically wears. Finishing this gown with a romantic updo, smokey eyes, red lips, a black glittered acrylic Edie Parker ‘Lara’ clutch, a pair of black Christian Louboutin ‘Thodorella’ leather and mesh pointed toe pumps, and a statement Messika Paris High Jewelry ‘North Wind’ diamond collar necklace would definitely get me excited about what Robin is wearing on the red carpet. This Is Us star Susan Kelechi Watson may not be nominated or presenting at this years Emmy Awards, but given the fact she has a role in a film that is getting a lot of awards season buzz so I am sure that I am really excited to see what she will bring to the red carpets. She has been wearing a lot of Christian Siriano on the red carpets this year, but I am almost completely over his brand of too over the top. So instead of turning to one of his designs for Susan to wear for the Emmy Awards on Sunday night I’ve decided to snag her this hot off the runway hot pink Cong Tri Spring 2020 RTW asymmetric gown which features a single sleeve, ruffled detail, a high split (that I would want to see brought down just a little for Susan), and a slight train. I would want to see her style this gown with a chic braided updo, defined eyes, nude lips, a hot pink crystal embellished Judith Leiber Couture ‘Slim Slide’ minaudiere, a pair of hot pink, rose pink, and burgundy Jimmy Choo ‘Lilah’ strappy sandals, and dazzling Anabela Chan fuchsia pink sapphire and white diamond chandelier earrings to really make this a wow moment. Zendaya has been loving a great suit moment on the red carpets lately. I had gone back and forth on whether or not to pick another suit for her to wear on the Emmy Awards red carpet on Sunday night. She will be one of the nights many presenters and I definitely want to see her deliver a major fashion moment on this red carpet. I decided that this black velvet tuxedo from the Tommy Hilfiger x Zendaya Fall 2019 RTW collection which features intricate silver beaded embellishments on the lapels and down the side of the pants would be a really cool moment for her to wear on the Emmy’s red carpet. A sleek center parted hairstyle, smokey eyes, dark red lips, a pair of black Christian Louboutin ‘Naked Bow’ PVC and satin pointed toe pumps, and a statement Lorraine Schwartz white diamond and emerald necklace to simulate a tie would all ensure that this look is sexy and glamorous from head to toe.
The 2019 Emmy Awards will take place on Sunday September 22, 2019.
