Teyonah Parris In Christian Siriano - 2014 Emmy Awards

Teyonah Parris blew me away on the red carpet at the 2014 Emmy Awards held at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live on Monday (August 25) in Los Angeles, California, and I’m sure she will do the same to you.

The ‘Mad Men’ actress has always had a love for colour and print, and this Christian Siriano lime silk overlay gown with a striped bodice from the Resort 2015 collection has it ALL.

Colour, personality, vibrancy and a fun-loving spirit that will etch this look in my memory forever.

Styled with a Carrera y Carrera ring, drop earrings, a topknot and that infectious smile, she was easily of my favourites on this red carpet.

What a breath of fresh air. I’m gonna sit back and soak this one in.

Get The Look: Natalie Dormer’s Emmy Award Defined Eyes

66th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards - ArrivalsCelebrity Makeup Artist Jake Bailey created Natalie Dormer’s beauty look for the 2014 Emmy Awards.

Talking about his beauty inspiration, Jake said “The focus of Natalie’s look was most definitely her eyes. She has such gorgeous blue almond-shaped eyes and I really wanted to showcase them.”

Here’s how to get the look.

When doing this much eye makeup, Jake always begins with the eyes so that any eyeshadow that falls on the face during application can be cleaned up afterwards, before applying foundation or blush.

He began by lining her top lash line with Urban Decay 24/7 Eyeliner in Perversion and blending it softly with his fingertip. Then he applied a warm shimmery brown shade, Lancome Color Design Shadow in Pose, all over her lids and into the crease. He lined her lower lash line with Urban Decay’s 24/7 liner in Smog, blending it with his fingertip to soften. Then he applied a pair of mink lashes from Velour called ‘Are Those Real?’ and coated them with Urban Decay Mascara in Perversion.

Once the eyes were finished, Jake buffed a small amount of Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation in Creamy Vanilla over her skin using a soft flat-tipped kabuki brush.

Warming her cheeks using a combo of equal parts Le Blush Crème de Chanel blush in Affinite and NARS Luminizer in Copacabana, he mixed the two on the back of his hand to create a custom glowy blush.

He then dusted her face with a touch of Covergirl Clean Pressed Powder in Ivory. Once powdered he used NARS Contour Blush in Olympia to accentuate her cheekbones by blending a small amount into the hollows of her cheeks.

Jake finished the look by lining her lips with Urban Decay 24/7 lip liner in Naked and topping it with L’Oreal Color Caresse Wet Shine Stain in Pink Perseverance.

Melissa McCarthy attended the 2014 Emmy Awards held at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live on Monday (August 25) in Los Angeles, California.

Having failed to excite in the past, this Marchesa look was a stark improvement.

Her custom black ball-gown featured a tulle skirt, with a panel of jet crystals, sequins and re-embroidered lace nipping in her waist to give the look some definition.

A Jimmy Choo ‘Cosma’ clutch, a noir manicure and an onyx-stone ring accessorized her look, with wavy tresses falling around her shoulders.

Ariel Winter attended the 2014 Emmy Awards held at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live on Monday (August 25) in Los Angeles, California alongside the cast of her hit TV show, ‘Modern Family’.

Hitting several high notes when it came to style, youthfulness, and event-appropriateness, the actress wore a Black Halo Eve two-piece look featuring a black crop top and striped maxi skirt.

Ariel accessorized with Vita Fede jewels, Ferragamo heels and a pop of colour courtesy of her Swarovski ‘Nirvana Star’ red satin clutch.

I prefer this for Ariel over a big frothy gown any day.
