At the 2011 Emmy Awards, Lea Michele‘s “comfortable” sartorial look left me wanting a little more, but her makeup and hairstyle was definitely pretty. Her hair was done by celebrity stylist Mark Townsend while celebrity makeup artist Melanie Inglessis paired Lea Michele’s red Marchesa dress with “classic, beautiful makeup.” This translated into defined eyes, luminous skin and super-long lashes. Young, cool and modern was the look for the Glee star. Products used:
Visionnaire Advanced Skin Corrector

Said Mark Townsend, “I was so inspired by Lea’s Marchesa gown for the Emmy’s! The dress is such an amazing modern take on an old Hollywood silhouette. I thought it would be too expected to put the hair up so I wanted Lea to look young, cool, and modern so we went down with heavy bangs and lots of texture.
I started by adding a few drops of Dove Nourishing Oil Care Serum to Lea’s damp hair, this is full of natural almond and coconut oils that absorb into the hair instantly and leaves the hair incredibly smooth and shiny. Next I added a large dollop of Dove Body and Lift Mousse and then blowdried with a large round brush, I always use Spornette mixed bristle brushes to get list of volume in the hair. After the hair was dry I ran a flat iron over her strands and then sprayed lots of Sally Hershberger Body Fix spray all over, this spray is a hybrid of a spray wax and a hairspray, it gives the hair amazing texture!”
What do you think about Lea Michele’s Emmys look? Do you agree that formal events shouldn’t necessarily make people COMFORTABLE? This isn’t your bowling league.
