Emmys Red Carpet Host Carolyn Hennesy Wears Ivey Abitz

Emmy winner Carolyn Hennesy wore two gowns made by Ivey Abitz as she hosted the 45th Daytime Emmys Red Carpet and Creative Arts Red Carpet shows.

Carolyn is no stranger to Ivey Abitz bespoke clothing. It is part of her everyday wardrobe, including for professional appearances like interviews and red carpet events. In fact, Carolyn is so at home in Ivey Abitz bespoke, she has even worn it in performances.

Bespoke Garments for All Emmys Occasions

Look 3 - Spring 2018 Ivey Abitz Bespoke - Morningside Duster Coat in Blue Slate Embroidered Silk Organza; Inglenook Frock in Blue Slate Washed Linen, Low Water Length.
One of the jackets in Carolyn’s wardrobe is from the Spring Collection, Look No. 3.

Carolyn also chose Ivey Abitz bespoke ensembles to wear at the less formal events surrounding the Emmys, like luncheons and receptions. For those events, she chose from the Spring 2018 Look Book, as can you.

Ivey Abitz spent weeks creating very special gowns for Carolyn’s hosting roles. You can get a glimpse of some of the work behind the scenes creating dresses for the Emmys.

The Daytime Emmy Award Red Carpet shows were streamed live April 27-29, 2018, over multiple social media and web based outlets, bringing Ivey Abitz bespoke clothing to its largest audience ever.
