Emmys 2014 Recap!

Flair’s Annual Emmys Recap!

It’s that time of year again! Last night’s Emmy Awards was the first major awards show of the season and all of the Flair girls were glued to their TVs. The first thing we noticed was that some things were a little different about this year’s show. First of all, having the Emmys on Monday was a bit stressful. We had to miss some of the pre-show because of a little thing called work. Thanks alot, Emmys. Secondly, where was Ryan Seacrest? One thing remained unchanged though, and that was the glitz and glamour of the Emmys red carpet!

Some quick trends that we spotted:

1) White is a hot color year round, it’s time to forget that old Labor Day rule! And hey, brides, some of these gowns are giving us a serious alternative bridal gown vibe! We love Sophia Vergara in Roberto Cavalli, Lucy Liu in Zac Posen, Padma Lakshmi in Ralph Rucci and Laverne Cox in Marc Bouwer.


2) Shorter hemlines are showing up on tons of red carpet stars these days, and who can blame them? It’s August…in California. We think that Julia Roberts (in Elie Saab Couture), Kiernan Shipka (in Antonio Berardi), Natasha Lyonne (in Opening Ceremony), and Jessica Pare (in Lanvin) all wisely chose shorter dresses that were still formal enough for the event. Bravo ladies!


3) Patterns are a fun way to stand out on the red carpet, as long as the print is appropriate. We think that Teyonah Parris’ Christian Siriano dress is divine, while Julie Bowen is chic in Peter Som. Amanda Peet looks a little too casual (but comfy!) in her Giambattista Valli dress, and Betsey Brandt’s Alice + Olivia dress just makes us smile!


And lastly, per usual, the Flair girls were varied in our best dressed picks. Not to toot our own horn but we think that’s what makes Flair great! We all have a unique sense of style, which allows us to relate to any and every girl that walks through our doors. Check out our picks and let us know who you loved (and hated)!

Stacey loved Julia Louis-Dreyfus in Carolina Herrera while Jaime’s pick was Heidi Klum in Zac Posen (who was also her date!) and Victoria chose Lauren Parsekian in Lorena Sarbu.


Madison said “Janice Ian cleans up nice” (so true!) and chose Lizzy Caplan in Donna Karan Atelier. Joy thought Sarah Hyland looked adorable in Christian Siriano (and recommended Hayley Paige’s Dori dress for a similar bridal look) and Lindsay fell for Allison William’s dreamy dress by Giambattista Valli Couture.
