In the year of sheer, Sofia Vergar smoldered and Eric Stonestreet had a frosty secret. Follow Nancy also on her website , Facebook and Twitter. Others were a bit more literal. First I must share my laugh-out-loud hot moment that started off my whole Emmy Day … hot, as in sweating! We had my final gown fitting at day of the Emmys. I still had some design element inputs for the dress. I could see the seamstress getting nervous as the clock clicked down.
We made our last marks, she went to grab her car keys to drive to her sewing machine, and alas, my little puppy had run off with them. After sheer panic ensued and a scavenger hunt took place at my house, we finally found the keys being used as a teething ring by Buttercup! Whew, the dress got done in time for the red carpet! And speaking of dresses, how about the hot fashion trends!
It was a sea-green Jenny Packham gown with a swimsuit-like bodice underneath a sheer skirt. Two other striking sheers were the dresses of Leslie Mann and Lena Headey. Both color and non-color are in! Does that make sense? Let me explain. There seemed to be no in between on the red carpet.
Think nakedness, rubies and emeralds. Not bad thoughts, right? And it is exactly why I chose emerald green as my red carpet color this year! Renew your gym memberships, because body-hugging dresses, like Sofia Vergara had on, are clinging to trend! Simply, know your figure and choose a dress that puts the attention on your best body parts.
To keep cool, he actually wears an ice pack in the back of his pants! Not kidding! I remembered this little accessory from last year, so I pretty much felt him up to find out if he wore it again. He did! I think he should have won an Emmy just for that clever accessory! And since we are talking secrets, let me share the confessions of Jim Parsons, lead actor in a comedy winner!
Gotta love his honesty! That must have been tough. Also he showed me his cummerbund off-camera … you know those prom things! My prediction, he is gonna make them totally cool. And keeping cool was one thought in my mind when choosing a hairstyle this year. I went with a messy ponytail. Why does even messy take so long to do?
Believe it not, practical is the biggest reason whenever I choose a hairstyle. I have to go very long hours so I need a style that stays. Whether up or down, texture, movement, roughness, and waves are all in. Tell your hair to act irreverent — it is all the rage now! Simply run your fingers through your hair, give it a little spray for texture and separation and show up at the Emmys. You will fit right in! What you never see on camera when you watch, is that at some point, my feet are screaming hot with pain, so I take my shoes off and go au naturel!
It made it easy to be barefoot. And speaking of going natural, that was the makeup trend. Stars without makeup! We always love those articles! There was very little to no color on the eyelids, except on a few like Julianne Hough and Lena Dunham who decided to match their shadow to the color of their dresses. But there was heavy eyeliner and mascara with the no color look.
Or maybe we all just wanna date Jon Hamm? To be absolutely clear, it is Jon Hamm women wanna date, not Don Draper! Put a little shine on the high-up back part of your cheeks. You can actually use a little bit of frosted beige eye shadow to do it! That dewy look kind of a hot, sweaty look — but a pretty sweaty look — is good.
It makes for a youthful and natural glow. And if you wanna talk gals who shine, how about Tina Fey and Amy Poehler! Who is not obsessed with these two?! What a hot comic twosome! And guess what I found out. They may host the Golden Globes together again and believe it or not they were going use the Emmy commercial breaks to decide! Tina told me they wanted to talk about it in person with each other and had both been too busy to do so.
They live on two different sides of the country, so they determined that they would decide in the commercial breaks. So, what is the decision girls? Please tell us! I like them as a couple and asked him about where their current status is. He told me they are just taking a little break, that they are talking and he thinks everything will be fine. So good to hear! I went straight from all the winner interviews, back in to hair and makeup to do a satellite media tour which started at a.
And now … the Emmy goes to my pillow!
