Jaimie Alexander In Armani Privé – 2015 Emmy Awards

Jaimie Alexander In Armani Privé - 2015 Emmy Awards

Jaimie Alexander glittered across the red carpet of the 2015 Emmy Awards on Sunday night (September 20) at the Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles, California.

The actress donned a colourful Armani Prive Fall 2015 all-over beaded gown that portrayed a beautiful shimmer of jewel-toned hues from afar.

While I can only imagine that the dress was a bit on the warm side, I loved the sleek yet vibrant richness of the design complemented by the subtle addition of Baccarat jewels.

The slick, wet-look hair was another story. While one could argue it added a mod, futuristic vibe, I still can’t get fully on board with it.

Emily Robinson In Kayat – 2015 Emmy Awards

Emily Robinson In Kayat - 2015 Emmy Awards

Young star Emily Robinson was one of the first stars to hit the red carpet of the 2015 Emmy Awards at Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, CA tonight (September 20).

The actress wore a floral embroidered Kayat gown from the Spring 2015 collection, with a slight high/low hemline and 3/4-length sleeves.

While the silhouette of this gown seems a bit mature at first glance, the floral print and styling keeps it young, and I like that Emily chose to wear a grown-up gown to a grown-up occasion.

A textured ponytail, simple jewels and rosy cheeks and lips are the perfect complements for the lovely, feminine gown.

Ariel Winter In Romona Keveza – 2015 Emmy Awards

Ariel Winter In Romona Keveza - 2015 Emmy Awards

Ariel Winter was also in attendance at the 2015 Emmy Awards on Sunday night (September 20) at the Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles, California.

Serving up red-hot sophistication in a Romona Keveza gown, the ‘Modern Family’ starlet was the epitome of classic Hollywood elegance—even if she did dress older than her 17 years.

While I feel like we’ve seen this hourglass design many times before on the red carpet, I can’t help but be drawn to its eminent simplicity and grace made modern by the asymmetrical strapless bodice.

Long black waves continued to add va-voom flair to Ariel’s impeccably styled ensemble, although we could argue that she has plenty of years to wear looks such as this and should be having a bit more youthful fun right now.

Joanna Newsom In Delpozo – 2015 Emmy Awards

Joanna Newsom In Delpozo - 2015 Emmy Awards

Joanna Newsom attended the 2015 Emmy Awards this evening (September 20) at Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles, California.

Celebrating an imaginative take on sculptural femininity, the musician’s Delpozo Spring 2015 dress bore an intriguing mix of molded structure and chiffon-like movement.

The directional look was also quite decorative in the embellishment of the bodice, all of which served to elevate this design to an artistic form that is always a delight to see on the red carpet.

Her earrings were a lovely addition to the look, however, I would have removed the wrist cuffs.

Get The Look: Dascha Polanco’s Emmy Awards Ethereal Beauty Look

66th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards - ArrivalsUnlike her character on ‘Orange Is The New Black,’ Dascha Polanco sparkled on the Emmy Awards red carpet. While her goddess-like Johanna Johnson flowing gown was an inspiration for celebrity makeup artist, Lucky Smyler, the look was all about highlighting Dascha’s natural features.

Luminous skin, cool iridescent tones and highlights were essential characteristics in Dascha’s ethereal Emmy’s beauty look. Lucky took the opportunity to accentuate Dascha’s beautiful eyes and skin and used unexpected tones of light mint.

Here’s how you can achieve this glamorous and whimsical look yourself:

SKIN
Prep: To achieve that radiant creamy canvas, Lucky prepped Dascha’s skin with SheaMoisture Misting Toner and followed with SheaMoisture Primer, evenly applying it with a foundation brush.

Foundation: The goal was to create a smooth and creamy even finish. Lucky achieved that by applying SheaMoisture Sheer Liquid Foundation in Yasuni Honey with a dampened sponge and gently stippled the product along the skin. He proceeded by sweeping SheaMoisture Concealer in Snowdonia Fawn along her under eyes with his ring finger.

Set: He continued by sculpting the face with Color Correcting Contouring and Highlighting Palette in Medium Light, neatly contouring the face along the hairline, cheekbones and jaw area. To lock in the freshness and dewy quality of the skin, Lucky applied Yala Golden Pressed Powder to skin.

Finish (Glow): To achieve that glowing ethereal look, Lucky illuminated the skin with SheaMoisture Illuminating Powder in Cinnamon Ceylon and Mandalay Dusk. He enhanced the previous contouring and applied a final dusting of SheaMoisture Annecy Maroon Mineral Blush along the apples of the cheeks.

EYES
Prep: To prep the lids, Lucky dusted SheaMosture Eyeshadow in Cecilia on the lid and brow bone. The pale tone of eye shadow served as a highlight and framing shade for the additional colors.

Color: Lucky used a damp shadow brush to apply a mixture of the base shade and Deysi Eyeshadow to the lids. Due to the iridescent quality of the shadows, a dampened brush allowed for a more intense pigment upon application.

Finish: He framed Dascha’s eyes with a swipe of black liquid liner and followed with generous layers of a volumizing and lengthening mascara to her lashes.

LIPS
Prep: To achieve a pillow soft lip, Lucky exfoliated, moisturized and primed Dascha’s lips with SheaMoisture Lip Exfoliator.

Color: Once the lips were primed, Lucky applied SheaMoisture Roberta Lipstick Crayon and blotted. This allowed the color to set as more of a stain rather than flat color and followed with a final coat of the same product.

Finish: To further highlight her lips, Lucky finished with a layer of SheaMoisture Lipgloss in Rosie.

Get The Look: Lena Dunham’s Emmy Awards Pink Metallic Manicure

Get The Look Lena Dunham’s Emmy Awards Pink Metallic Manicure

Lena Dunham isn’t one to play it safe when it comes to red carpet style and the 2014 Emmy Awards was no exception. The vibrant ‘Girls’ star stepped out in a daring Giambattista Valli Couture gown and equally statement making manicure.

While her whimsical tulle layered dress featured a gradient of pink hues, nail superstar, Deborah Lippmann dressed Lena’s nails in a metallic magenta that perfectly set off her full look.

Here’s how you can recreate this luxe chrome manicure yourself:

Prep: Deborah prepped Lena’s nails using her signature 5-step manicure technique: cleanse, shape, exfoliate and hydrate (hands/nails). Starting with Deborah Lippmann The Stripper, she removed any polish and impurities from Lena’s nails and proceeded to shape them using Deborah Lippmann Smooth Operator, a 4-way multi nail buffer.

Once nails were clean, Deborah used her Cuticle Remover and hydrated the nails and surrounding skin with Deborah Lippmann Cuticle Oil. She finished by generously coating Lena’s hands in Deborah Lippmann Rich Girl SPF 2 Hand Cream and massaging it into the skin.

Foundation: To insure a clean and even base on the nails, Deborah applied a layer of her Ridge Filler Base Coat to nails. Not only does this fill in any bumps, ridges and inconsistencies in the nail bed, but this vital product acts as a concealer on the nail.

Colour: Once dry, she applied two even coats of 12th Street Rag, a metallic magenta luxe chrome nail colour. This ultra-rich shade is a new polish from her Fall 2014 collection, New York Marquee.

Finish: To further enhance Lena’s metallic manicure, Deborah followed with a coat of her Gel Lab Top Coat, leaving her nails dressed in a high gloss finish.
