ELOQUII Hits The Emmys
We're the first ones to admit that we love to log in some quality time with our DVRs. So when we decided to head to the Emmys a few months ago, our excitement could hardly be contained. However, we couldn't go by ourselves: we needed to round up some of our absolute favorite ladies who are #killing it at the game. Read our Emmys diary below, featuring none other than our fearless VP of Marketing Kelly Goldston with insanely extra-special guests: gold medalist Michelle Carter (that's @ShotDiva to you, ladies) and plus-size fashion superstar Nicolette Mason. Want even more? Follow us on Instagram and watch our story to get the full live vibe. You can shop all of these looks in our upcoming holiday collections: start making your wishlists!
Kelly’s Emmys Diary:
I arrived in LA last night (shout out to my flight BFF Carol Kane!) and went straight to bed. I needed as much beauty sleep as possible: this is a once-in-a-lifetime event here, people.
I'm so beyond excited to be attending tonight's festivities with none other than Michelle Carter, the reigning Olympic gold medalist in Women's Shot Put. When she graciously let me touch her gold medal, I was legit shaking. But what many of you may not know is that she's a major beauty junkie. I'm so excited to get ready with her!
Glamsquad just arrived and came with a veritable treasure trove of hair and makeup goodies. Wonder which products they'll be using on me today?!
Look who just rolled up: one of our longtime BFFs Nicolette Mason. Nicolette is the queen of all things glam, so I'm thrilled to have her here so I can soak up all of her tips!
I'm definitely not used to being in front of the camera as much as these ladies. I’m hoping I’ll soak up all of their posing skills!
Big hair, don’t care
All ready! We’re so thrilled to wear these yet-to-be-released looks from our holiday collections this year! Nicolette settled on the super-chic Sweetheart Neckline Jumpsuit. There were lots of options that looked next-level on Nicolette, but as soon as she saw this jumpsuit, she was obsessed. Who could blame her? If you're as obsessed as she is, it will be available on the site in mid-October.
Michelle is rocking our Sequin Bonded Pique Dress. This dress is already legendary in the pantheon of ELOQUII dresses, but the added sparkle at the hem makes this completely Emmys-worthy. For Michelle, it was love at first site: keep your eyes peeled for it at the end of October.
And as for me, I’m wearing our Sleeveless Sequin Wrap Dress (sign up for the waitlist—I have a feeling this one isn’t going to be here for long). Thanks for all of the ladies at ELOQUII HQ for helping me pick it out: any opportunity to play fashion show in the middle of the office is one we will take.
Group pic time!
We’re off to the limo! Playlist covers all the basics: Beyonce, Beyonce, and more Beyonce.
OMG we’ve finally made it to the red carpet. Even though it’s so overwhelming, I’ve got my celeb-spotting glasses on, and I’m ready to mingle.
NBD, just spied Hugh Dancy. Played it suuuuuuuuuper cool. (jk x 213120920913--sorry, Claire!)
It's a little hard to make our way down the red carpet: we're getting too many compliments.
Took an Instagram break and saw that one of our all-time faves Aidy Bryant chose a custom version of our Embroidered Tulle Fit and Flare Dress! Doesn't she look stunning? We can't wait to find her later!
Heading inside! This experience has been such a whirlwind, and the show hasn’t even started yet!
Our seats are incredible...but I’m a little concerned if we can make it on stage in time when they announce our big win? ;-)
Viola Davis is a vision.
The kids from Stranger Things are the cutest things on earth.
We screamed so loudly for Kate McKinnon, I'm pretty sure people thought we were her family.
Jill Soloway's suit is so amazing: we think she may have taken a little inspo from our latest collection....
Saw Kirsten Dunst and Alia Shawkat in the span of about two seconds. #bathroombreaksftw
How did Jimmy Kimmel know that we were starting to get famished? Thanks for the pb & j, buddy!
Sarah Paulson. Bow down.
Look who I ran into! It's our girl Aidy, totally crushing it in her custom ELOQUII look.
Welp, that’s a wrap! Thank you so much for joining us on your trip to the Emmys: it was everything we could have imagined and more. Now, it’s time for us to take off our shoes and get milkshakes.
