Emmys 2017: Red Carpet Glamour Edition

I like to watch television. Well, “like” is actually an understatement. I love to watch television. There is probably nothing I love more than coming home from work, retreating to the couch and turning on the tube. As much as I love watching tv, I’m gonna fess up and let you guys know that I don’t love watching award shows like the Emmys. I flip channels and check out who’s wearing what.

What do I do if I don’t watch the shows? I tune into the red carpet show.  I love seeing the glamorous designer gowns and luxe hairstyles grace the carpet.

My favorite Red Carpet Looks:

69th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards - Arrivals

The belle of the carpet, Yara Shahidi. “Blackish” always represents on the red carpet.

Ok Jane Fonda, show these young ones how it’s done. This is a pink moment.

Wow! Tessa Thompson did not come to play with you ****. This look is giving me Studio 54 meets Egyptian Goddess all at the same damn time.

 

 

I predict that “Blackish” and “Insecure” will be taking home some type of Moonperson tonight.

And in the words of the great former Miss America, Vanessa Williams “…Just when I thought our chance had passed, you go and save the best for last.”

I watched Gabrielle Union get her hair ready (with her own line of products) on IG and I was ready to see the dress that matched the big pony on the carpet. SHE DID NOT FAIL. SEXY SLAY. 

 

Tracee Ellis

JOAN, RAINBOW, I mean TRACEE!!! Zaaam Woman! You went and pulled out the Chanel Haute Couture on ’em. Play fair next time.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Curl Crush: Tracee Ellis Ross

We fell in love with Tracee Ellis Ross after we got to know her as Joan Clayton on the hit show “Girlfriends”. Joan was characterized by her zany antics and lush head of curls. We had to bid goodbye to Joan but we got to meet Tracee. Tracee’s Instagram is fun and gives us a peek into the life of one of our favorite actresses. She’s living her life like it’s golden through fun and fitness and she shared some recent pictures from Italy and the gym time paid off.  She looks phenomenal!

Her IG Handle: TraceeEllisRoss

 Reasons Why We Love Tracee:

Tracee recently shared some vacation pictures from Italy showing off a sun kissed glow.

Tracee shares with us that she works hard at the gym to stay fit. She hashtags #redlipfit so that we can work right alongside her.

Tracee has this great head of curly hair and it has become a signature of sorts. She partnered with "Optimum" hair care products a few months back to rep their Amla line.
