ROLL UP THE RED CARPET ON ANOTHER DAYTIME EMMY FASHION REVIEW

Welcome back to the Red Carpet Roll Up for the 40th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards Show! Once again I’d like to give a shout out to HLN TV for hosting the show and giving the most enthusiastic audience around (daytime viewers!!) a chance to celebrate their favorite shows. AND …YES! There IS a lot to celebrate…ratings are up, two of our beloved, cancelled soaps came back online, more indie soaps are finding their audiences, and the fabulous four; DOOL, B&B , Y&R , GH are reinvigorated, with multigenerational storytelling that is relevant & riveting! So congrats everyone & let’s keep it going!!!! Watch your favorite shows (in real time when possible) Talk about your shows, Tweet about your shows…Facebook…you get the idea! The daytime community is strong …make it be heard! Okay….off the soapbox and onto the carpet….
This year, I was determined to avoid the mad crush onto the red rug littered with sequins, sweat and tears (weary photographers!) So I cruised in early, walked the carpet, did my interviews and set out to scout the daytime fashionistas! With so much to celebrate I have to say I was a bit disappointed with the “Glam” level this year. Daytime stars have always been high wattage on the red carpet but this was not one of those occasions…and I’m going to blame the MEN! Is it SO very difficult to go black tie for ONE night?! Come on guys!! (More about this later… in the misses section!) It seems this event is becoming an “ever less formal” event for many participants and I say…what fun is that?!
So men … dress up! Do you think women are “comfortable” in their 6 inch heels, sequins, rhinestones, boned bodices & bustiers, trailing silk and chiffon ( that YOU are constantly stepping on!!) NOOO.. we’re NOT, but we wear the clothing for the occasion because that’s what you DO…and it makes it special and nice and glamorous and FIERCE for everyone! That said…invest in a great tux. It will last you forever or close to… (Tom Ford, Prada , Hugo Boss anyone? ) and besides, you can always get a good tux altered and updated so…there you go! Next year, I want to see more hot men in Black tie! Hullo … can we say Daniel Craig? Now, that man knows how to Black tie it!
Sorry Blake Berris, you know I love you (most fabulous man & actor ) and that’s why I am going to use you as an example!! because you looked SO damn hot last year, sleek, modern & SO appropriate …but this year, you succumbed to the ‘club/party’ easy way out look…why? We missed you setting that high bar so……PLZ Lead the way back to elegance & glamour…there are so many woman and men who will thank you for it!!
Glam is good, Glam is great…it’s the reason we HAVE A RED CARPET!! Anyway…thankfully, lots of the women were willing to put in the effort and it paid off as you’ll see in the following sections. Maybe some of your favorites are listed, maybe not…I didn’t see everyone (some peeps skipped the carpet!)…So please feel free to send us your pics as well. I KNOW a lot of you want some down & dirty “what were you thinking?” commentary and while I LOVE Joan Rivers, in the spirit of NOH8…I’m going easy on folks…hey, we ALL make mistakes ( I still have mixed feeling on my look this year!) SO….this year’s hits, hotties & not so much’s (yeah… what were you thinking?!)
