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

DAYS Elani Wedding (Photos): What Did You Think Of The Nuptials?

This week on Days of our Lives saw the first African-American couple to be married on-screen in the 54-year history of Days of our Lives.  Now while Lani (Sal Stowers) and Eli (Lamon Archey) tried before in a previous ceremony, this one did the job … they are now officially husband and wife!

The ceremony was attended by Lani’s dad, Abe Reynolds (James Reynolds), her mother Tamara Price (Marily McCoo), Billy Davis Jr.  as a former FBI mentor to Eli, Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) – it was her restaurant after all and she is Eli’s grandmother.  Dr. Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall) presided over the ceremony.

There were some unwelcome guests at the ceremony as well; leading the bride to question, are we doomed?  Why does this keep happening to us everytime we tried to get hitch!

However, fate was on Lani and Eli’s side this day, as even Gabi (Camila Banus) with her antics, and a shocking arrival from Vivian Alamain (Louise Sorel), couldn’t rain on this day.  Vivian even tried to shoot the bride, but thanks to Rafe (Galen Gering) saving the day and armed with news that her son Stefan (Brandon Barash) could be alive; he informs Viv firmly that she would be killing someone for the wrong reason, even though Vivian is in disbelief that her son is alive.  Next, she is whisked out of the ceremony.

Lani still feeling rattled by all the wedding interruptus gets a sign she should marry the man she loves; when her mother, who needed to go lie down earlier, as she was feeling faint, was able to show back up just in time to restart the wedding.

Broom

During the ceremony, Eli mentions the loss of little David Abraham and the struggles they went through, but how in the end it brought then closer together.  After the rings are exchanged and they are pronounced man and wife, the newlyweds “jump the broom” a wonderful tradition and a symbol of African-American heritage, where the sweeping of the broom signifies sweeping away all the bad energy.  After they sweep the broom, Elani jumps over it.

In a behind-the-scenes of the wedding segment released this week on the DOOL app, Sal Stowers and Lamon Archey talk about the inclusion of the ‘jump the broom’ moment in the episode, and how they suggested the idea to DAYS Co-EP Albert Alaar, and how  it was written into the episode.

So, what did you think of Lani and Eli’s wedding? Did you enjoy it? Let us know via the comment section below, but first check out this wedding photo gallery of the big day!

Y&R’s Eric Braeden “40 Years As Victor Newman” Celebration (PHOTOS)

The stars came out in full for the iconic Eric Braeden’s (Victor Newman) 40th anniversary with The Young and the Restless at a very special on set celebration at CBS Television City in Los Angeles this past Friday (Braeden premiered as Victor back on February 8, 1980).

Attendees ranged from: a “Who’s Who” of Y&R through the years, important friends, colleagues, former co-stars, family, and executives from CBS and the series.

Y&R’s Doug Davidson (Paul) presided over the introduction of various speakers throughout the presentation to Eric.  If anyone could have such a wealth of friends from different walks of life, it’s Eric Braeden.  Even, sports journalist and broadcaster Stephen A. Smith (who is a GH fan and has appeared on that soap) gave a moving speech about how knowing Eric for the last 7 years has meant so much to him.

Former Y&R star and now one of the main men from the hit NBC drama series, This Is Us, Justin Hartley, returned to his old stomping grounds to deliver his thoughts on working with Eric, when he, indeed, played Adam Newman for four years.  In another tender moment, Justin’s successor, Mark Grossman (Adam) took to the podium as the newest member of the grown-up Newman children to honor Eric.

Peter Bergman (Jack) shared a hilarious story from the Daytime Emmys years ago; when he met his favorite singer of all-time, Aretha Franklin, but who he remembers really wanted to know more about Victor Newman, than he, as Jack!  Joshua Morrow (Nick) shared some very funny stories about working with his on-screen dad over the years, while Braeden’s longtime on-screen wife, Melody Thomas Scott (Nikki) shared some very sweet sentiments about her enduring co-star.

The place was abuzz with some very stellar guests from the world of daytime when General Hospital’s Maurice Benard (Sonny), Steve Burton (Jason) and James Patrick Stuart (Valentin) showed up to celebrate Eric’s big day.

CBS President, Kelly Kahl, Y&R executive producer, Tony Morina, Y&R head writer and co-EP, Josh Griffith and B&B’s EP and head writer, Brad Bell,  and Producer, Ed Scott also saluted Eric from the podium with various speeches, and recollections over Braeden’s 40 years on the top-rated soap and throughout his illustrious film and TV career.  Tom LaBonge, a councilman from the city of Los Angeles, made a very special presentation to Eric, as well.

Check out some of photos from Eric’s spectacular 40th anniversary celebration below.
