In exactly one week celebrities will attend the 2014 Emmys and we were wondering what the nominees should wear, so we scouted the wwworld and found these great predictions from eonline that cover our favorite nominees & shows. Sure, a lot of that excitement will be because of what happens during the actual awards show, but most of the hype will be a direct result of the red carpet arrivals. Since the Emmys is the first major event to take place since the 2014 Fall Haute Couture fashion shows, it means that the stars get first pick at some of the best gowns of the season. Here’s what they have to say:
“We have no idea what the Scandal star Kerry Washington might wear on Emmys night. This is partially why we love the new mom so much, she’s always surprising us—in a good way. That being said, we hope she might pick something as perfect as this Elie Saab Couture dress.
I think we can all agree that the Modern Family star Sofia Vergarashut it down in her red gown at the 2013 Emmys. And we’re hoping she opts for a repeat performance in the color but this time wearing one of her favorite designers Zuhair Murad. Another Modern Family star, Julie Bowen, has proven to be a huge fan of colorful, ultra feminine gowns. And, well, what do you know? This Elie Saab Couture dress is both of those things.
The Game of Thrones star, Emilia Clarke likes to play it safe on the red carpet but we think she should come out of her comfort zone with this Zuhair Murad gown. Because if anyone is going to pull off the dazzling dress it is definitely the Mother of Dragons.”
The Emmys is the perfect place for the Orange is the New Blackactress Taylor Schilling to have her first red-hot moment and this Valentino gown would be just that.”
So, check out the predictions and share your thoughts!

Kelly Wearstler Mixing Drinks with Athena Calderone: Athena Calderone, Creator of Eye-Swoon.com & one of our favorite Interior Designers got together with another TFS’s favorite, the queen of design chic Kelly Wearstler to talk design and mix drinks, and this is the result:
“Kelly introduced me to her line of home and bar accessories, an extension of her overall aesthetic and brand, with a refined palette of black, white, brass, and marble, with gemstone details and a touch of playful whimsy. She has made basic, often mundane bar essentials into something entirely artful. From Kelly’s green marble-clad home bar, we created Cointreau’s refreshing classic lime rickey cocktail—and she shared the inspiration behind some of her favorite bar pieces.”
“Kelly’s design mission: to make a space clever and beautiful without sacrificing functionality. “Chic bar accessories make entertaining in style effortless.” For example, “adding a bejeweled bottle opener to the setup instantly elevates any spread.” The Liaison Collection, which includes objects adorned with bronze lips, are a favorite. “Everyone needs a kiss!” she says. Kelly and I are both inspired by artists who transform everyday objects into works of art and I’d argue she is one of those artists!”
“Kelly’s multitasking mastery ranges from hotel renovation to furniture design, jewelry and home accessories, all in a single day’s work. Talking design and style with her, and hearing about work in her office, where a cross-pollination of design disciplines are born—architecture informs jewelry design, a metal patina or vintage pendant spawns furniture hardware—I was inspired all over again. Read the entire Eye Swoon’s Q&A with Kelly Wearstler and pictures here.
