While much of America was getting football cozy, a Sunday tradition, I was grabbing the remote and prepping myself for my sport: the Red Carpet. Last night was the 68th Annual Emmy Awards and I love the show, of course, but what I really love is the pre-game. It’s fashion fun – nothing too heavy – just a light look at the outfits that the actors choose to wear. It is a choice, after all. And the Red Carpet makes it all the more glamorous: the interviews, the twirling … you know. As a twirler myself, I imagine walking the Red Carpet in my favorite party dress!
It has become my tradition and ritual. A few times a year I prepare for awards shows by putting on my blinders, removing myself from the rest of my family, and turning on the television – to hear the words, “Live from the red carpet!” What I see is the red carpet style and sizzle that I have come to appreciate as much as the shows themselves. Those moments in time when actors come to talk about their shows or movies and yes, share information on ‘who they are wearing‘ as Joan Rivers used to say.
