Humberto Leon Weighs In on Natasha Lyonne’s Custom OC Emmy Awards Dress


NBC's "66th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards" - ArrivalsRed dresses flooded the red carpet at the Emmy Awards on Monday night, but Natasha Lyonne’s ocean blue, mermaid-shaped number stood out. Lacy, long-sleeved, with a hint of ’80s prom, the dress looked stunning on the Orange Is the New Black bad girl and was one of our top picks of the night. The piece was custom-made by Opening Ceremony, so we asked cofounder and designer Humberto Leon to tell us a little about it.

How did you decide on the silhouette of the dress?Natasha originally fell in love with a dress from Opening Ceremony’s Pre-Fall 2013 runway, and we worked with Karla Welch, her stylist, to adapt it for the Emmys.

Tell us about making the dress.
The process of designing the dress for Natasha was really organic and felt natural. We’ve been friends for a long time and were so excited to have her wear Opening Ceremony at the Emmys.

Anyone else you thought looked particularly great Monday night?
We loved Mindy Kaling in Kenzo, of course! Carrie Brownstein also looked amazing.

Scandal, Horror, and Lots of Dirty Politicians Take the 2013 Emmy Nominations


Kerry Washington at the 2012 Emmy AwardsAfter hearing this morning’s announcement of the 2013 Emmy nominations, it seems that little has changed in TV land since 2012. After a somewhat controversial second season, Girls is still going strong, and the ever-trendy Game of Thrones, 30 Rock, Breaking Bad, and Louie all earned mentions, too. Unsurprisingly, Emmy veterans Mad Men, Downton Abbey, and Homeland were all nominated once (or twice, or five times) again. Other notable nods went to funny women Jane Lynch for Glee, Julia Louis-Dreyfus for Veep, and Amy Poehler for Parks and Recreation.

Newcomers included juicy dramas Scandal and Nashville, but the only real surprise was the Netflix series House of Cards. The political saga earned nine nominations, including Best Drama Series, and marks the first time the Emmys have included an online-only program.

In terms of quantity, American Horror Story: Asylum tops the list with nominations in seventeen categories. But the more-is-more game has a few other players: Saturday Night Live earned a hearty fifteen nominations, as did HBO’s Liberace biopic Behind the Candelabra. The film’s Michael Douglas and Matt Damon were each nominated for Best Actor in a Miniseries or Movie, and Steven Soderbergh is up for Best Director. Of course, we’ll be keeping our eyes on the red carpet to see what stars like Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series nominee Kerry Washington (left), Tina Fey, Claire Danes, and Kiernan Shipka don to the awards on September 22, and we’re also eager to hear who takes the win for best costumes—crowd favorites like Boardwalk Empire, Game of Thrones, and Downton Abbey are all vying for the prize. See a list of the big nominees, below.

Girls Allowed: The 2012 Emmy Nominations


It’s hard not to wonder about the overlap between Emmy voters and Twitter obsessives this year. The nominations for the annual primetime TV awards skews to the young, the cool, and the zeitgeist-y. Proof? Look no further than the presence of just about every show that’s been a hipster (and, to large part, critics) favorite: Girls (overcoming some bad press to get a Best Comedy Series nod), New Girl, Louie, Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, Downton Abbey—all got their due. So did Kristen Wiig (Best Actress in a Comedy series, for her tearful final season of SNL), the cult-worshipped English actor Benedict Cumberbatch of Sherlock, and pop culture’s favorite curmudgeons, Louis C.K. and Larry David. (This year also marks what must be the historic first time that a nominee for Best Actress—Lena Dunham (pictured), Girls—dressed up as a nominee for Best Actor—Louis C.K., Louie—for Halloween. It’s also likely the first time that an actress has been nominated, as Margaret Cho was, for playing Kim Jong-il—in a comedy.) Leading the pack are Mad Men (with 17 nominations) and Homeland (with nine nominations). The awards will be broadcast on September 23.

Just Kids (And Their Moms)


Despite their busy, Emmy event-filled schedules this past weekend, Hollywood moms turned out to support Stella McCartney’s charity event. With their young ones in tow, the likes of Selma Blair and Monet Mazur fêted the woman they refer to as the ultimate über-mom and her adorable pint-sized kids’ collection. (McCartney, however, didn’t even make it across the pond for the event because she’s busy prepping for her upcoming runway show.)

For the occasion, the back of McCartney’s Beverly Boulevard boutique was transformed into a carnival. While kids took their turns in the petting zoo (rumor has it the flock was fresh off the set of Lady Gaga’s latest music video), the moms shopped (after all, 10 percent of all proceeds of the day went to the Children’s Action Network).

“I really kind of wish I worked for Stella,” Blair, who recently returned to acting, told while she cradled her 7-week-old son, Arthur, in her arms. “Not only is she a friend, but it’s an organization that pays incredible attention and care to a woman’s and family’s needs, which is just so important to me right now.”
