40th Emmy – Fashion Review

EMMY FASHION REVIEW

ROLL UP THE RED CARPET ON ANOTHER DAYTIME EMMY FASHION REVIEW


By Lauren Koslow
Special Fashion Contributor On-Air On-Soaps 2013 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?!)

Enjoy, Lauren

Days Of Our Lives

James Reynolds Honored with On Set Celebration to Mark his 40th Anniversary on DAYS (PHOTOS)

Last Thursday, on the 40th anniversary of Days of our Lives‘ James Reynolds debut as Abe Carver, the long-running NBC soap took some time out from production to mark the milestone with an on set celebration attended by several cast members, creatives, and crew.

Taking part in the celebration wereL DAYS EP Ken Corday, Bill Hayes (Doug), Susan Seaforth Hayes (Julie), Mary Beth Evans (Kayla), Stephen Nichols (Steve), Sal Stowers (Lani), Suzanne Rogers (Maggie) , Josh Taylor (Roman), Thaao Penghlis (Tony), Marci Miller (Abigail), Lindsay Arnold (Allie), Greg Rikaart (Leo), Victoria Konefal (Ciara), and Robert Wilson (Ben).

 

With speeches and love all around, James was saluted by the show for his enduring performance as Abe.  Last Monday, a special episode was crafted in his honor, which saw Abe go to the light and being visited by his beloved late wife, Lexie in a series of scenes and flashbacks.  It was another touching performance by Reynolds, in which we also applaud him with Michael Fairman TV’s Power Performance of the Week honors (more on that in an upcoming post).

During his daytime career, Jim took home the Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series in 2018 for his portrayal, and remains the longest-running black actor in a continuing role on television.

Check out some of the moments from Jim’s celebration below in our photo gallery.

Then, let us know what you thought of James’ performance last week, and share your well-wishes to him for 40 years on DAYS and a job well-done, via the comment section.

THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS: What Did You Think of Victoria and Ashland’s Wedding? (PHOTOS)

Friday’s episode of The Young and the Restless brought with it the vows and the “I do’s” of Victoria Newman (Amelia Heinle) to Ashland Locke (Richard Burgi), and the couple are now officially married.  However, pangs of guilt, emotion, and ‘how to solve a problem like Ashland’ also filled the ceremony.

Leslie Brooks (Janice Lynde) played the piano, Tess (Cait Fairbanks) sang a song, and Victoria came down the aisle with her father, Victor (Eric Braden).  It was actually the moments between Eric Braeden and Amelia Heinle that were the emotional high points as you could see the love between the characters, and the actors.

With the nuptials in Tuscany, which brought Hunter King and Michael Mealor’s characters of Summer and Kyle back into the mix, along with Janice Lynde, Victoria was said to never look more beautiful and she chose, after all of Sally’s (Courtney Hope) machinations, to actually wear the dress Sally designed, which was a smash!

The drama came from what was Gaines (Jamison Jones) going to do and what ammo did he have to bust up the nuptials in his revenge against Ashland.  Nick (Joshua Morrow) comes upon him in a upstairs terrace room, and instead of helping him stop the wedding, he actually locks him in the room.

Nick then has a decision to make …. does he stop the wedding, which he knows his sister would never forgiven him for (he was already uninvited to the nuptials), or bust open the situation?  It is none other than Adam (Mark Grossman) that tells Nick to look at Victoria before he makes his move saying, “She’s happy. Do you really want to be the guy who wipes that look off her face on what should be the best day of her life?” Just then, Ashland and Victoria become husband and wife, They kiss as everyone in attendance applauds.

Throughout the wedding, another highlight was every time the camera would pan to Billy.  His face said it all as it was exceedingly and increasingly hard for him to watch Victoria marry another man, let alone Ashland. Jason Thompson played those moments to perfection. After the wedding, Billy goes up to the newlyweds and wishes them well.  During the ceremony, he received a text from Gaines, but did not read it.  When he later opens it, there is a video attachment.

Meanwhile, back in the upstairs room, Gaines is confronted by Nick, Adam, and Victor, who Adam alerted to the situation; instead of calling security, which Nick asked him to do.  A stern Victor tells Gaines that he’s still a threat to Victoria and her company, and he won’t allow that to happen.

When we go back to Billy, who is now with Lily (Christel Khalil), he looks shocked by what he just saw in the video message from Gaines.  He shows it to Lily saying: “He (Gaines) just sent us a video of himself detailing all of Ashland’s crimes including the evidence.” Lily knows this is huge news! Billy tells her that if they don’t publish within the hour, Gaines is going to send it around to other press outlets.  When Lily asks, “What should we do?”  The camera pans to Billy looking at Victoria and Ashland, where Victoria is smooching with her new hubby.  Billy looks very concerned and very torn. Will he be the person to break the backstory of Ashland and his crimes including the forged will and his conniving for Camilla Rhodes’ fortune… or will he not do anything with the intel to save his enduring relationship with Victoria?  We fade to black.  Tune-in Monday.

So, what did you think of the wedding of Ashland & Victoria? Share your thoughts in the comment section, but first, check out some of the moments and looks from the wedding in front of the camera and behind the scenes in our photo gallery below.
