“Days of our Lives’” Jen Lilley (Theresa Donovan) always stuns on the red carpet, but she was especially beautiful at the 41st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards.
Soap Opera Network: You look stunning!
Lilley: Thank you. It takes a village, you know.
With you, I doubt it! Who’s the designer of your dress?
How nice! Is that a good luck charm for your show?
Sure, I hope so!
“General Hospital’s” Bryan Craig (Morgan Corinthos) was a first time nominee at the 41st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards, and his real-life girlfriend, Kelly Thiebaud (Britt Westbourne, “GH”), made sure her beau had a very special day!
Soap Opera Network: Hello you two! And congratulations, Bryan. Kelly, you look stunning. Who’s the designer of your dress?
Kelly: Marc Jacobs.
What made you choose this one?
Kelly: Honestly, this was the best one that I found and I thought it was unique, and Marc Jacobs – you can’t really go wrong with that. And the shoes are Balenciaga.
And you, Bryan? Did it take you a long time to get ready?
Bryan: Oh no, I got a suit in a day. I just went to Top Man at the Grove and grabbed a suit and Kelly actually got me this nice tie clip today.
How sweet! So take me through your guys’ day today. What did you do leading up to this moment?
Bryan: So she woke up at 6:45, I woke up at about 9:30, and she made pancakes for me and bloody marys and walked the dog and did a lot of laundry, and I just kind of relaxed.
Kelly: But he vacuumed!
Bryan: Yes, I did vacuum! But it was a nice morning. Very relaxing, and she took care of me.
Soap Opera Network‘s coverage of the red carpet at the 41st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards continues, this time with Natalia Livingston, who was supporting three shows: “Tainted Dreams” (on which she plays Liza Park), “General Hospital” (on which she played Emily Bowen-Quartermaine) and “Days of our Lives” (on which she played Taylor Walker).
Soap Opera Network: You look beautiful! Who’s the designer of your dress?
Livingston: The House of Van Miller in Atlanta. I ran into fashion expert Christopher Mackin in Atlanta, and he recommended the House of Van Miller. They made this dress for me, and they’re just fantastic. And then Tania Spinelli is a dear friend of mine, and she made these four inch heels. They’re very comfortable.
“The Young and the Restless’” Tracey E. Bregman (Lauren Fenmore) and Beth Maitland (Traci Abbott) strolled the red carpet of the 41st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards together, but that’s not all the two had in common for the day! Read on to find out the unexpected way the two stars prepared for the glamorous event!
Soap Opera Network: Hello ladies! Who are the designers of your lovely outfits?
Tracey: I’m wearing Sen Couture.
Beth: This is a custom designed Peggy Lutz kimono.
What made you choose these outfits?
Tracey: For me, because I wasn’t presenting, I wasn’t nominated, I could go a little bit more casual and comfortable.
Beth: And for me, because of the character I play and because I’m a character actress, and I’m over 50, these kimonos are beautiful and flowy and comfortable for the day.
Tracey: And gorgeous!
Beth: Thank you! And we’ll be here past midnight, and that’s a big, significant thing: Having a good time and feeling great the whole time you’re here.
Ilene Kristen may be best known as her quirky character Roxy from ABC’s version of “One Life to Live,” but the star arrived at the 41st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards in support of the online sudser, “Tainted Dreams,” in which she plays Vivian Park.
Soap Opera Network: Hello, Ilene! Nice to see you again. If I recall correctly, you always seem to have a great story that goes along with your gowns: What is it this time?!
Kristen: Ha, well, I bought it from an Israeli woman who said it would look good on me. She was at a shop called Lily’s, and I have no idea who designed it, but she said it would look good on me, so I said ok.
Soap Opera Network‘s coverage of the red carpet during the 41st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards continues, this time with “General Hospital’s” Chad Duell (Michael Corinthos), who was nominated for Outstanding Younger Actor. He didn’t end up taking home the Emmy at the end of the night, but he shined like a winner anyway!
Soap Opera Network: Snazzy suit there, mister!
Duell: Thank you! It’s Walter Mendez. For once, I got a customized suit. I usually borrow it from my work, but I thought I’d do something different this time.
Is it because you got the nomination again or something else?
Well I’ve been nominated a couple of times, but I wanted to look extra spiffy. It’s my last time being in the younger actor category, so I thought I’d go out in style.
“The Young and the Restless’” Sean Carrigan (Stitch Rayburn) may spend his 9 to 5s surrounded by drama, but what many fans might not know is that the daytime newbie actually moonlights as a comedian! And lucky for his Southern California fans, he’ll soon be appearing on stage to flex his comic muscles!
Carrigan will be performing alongside national headliners Cort McCown and Eleanor Kerrigan, as well as fan fave Willie Hunter at The Comedy Store in La Jolla, California on Friday, July 18 and Saturday, July 19. You can catch the actor in shows starting at 7:00PM and 9:30PM on both nights.

“The Young and the Restless’” Max Ehrich (Fenmore Baldwin) — seen here with his girlfriend, actress Veronica Dunne — is usually quite stylish on the red carpet, and it was no exception for the 41st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards, where he was nominated as Outstanding Younger Actor.
Soap Opera Network: Wow, look at you with that facial hair! You look fabulous!
Ehrich: Thank you. I’m growing it out for “Under the Dome,” the CBS show. They had me grow it out, and I’m so used to Fenmore being really clean shaven. But there’s something about having some sort of difference, whether it’s in your hair or your face, that allows you to believe that you’re someone else.
That makes sense. Your outfit is super stylish, as usual. Who are you wearing?
Top Man from Top Shop. It just fits really well. You don’t have to do any alterations. I went there yesterday, and I was like, “I want that!”
Red carpet fashion is typically about the ladies, but not when it comes to the men of daytime! Soap Opera Network caught up with quite a few dashing dudes during the 41st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards, beginning with “Days of our Lives’” Guy Wilson (Will Horton)!
Soap Opera Network: Obviously, it’s a totally different process for a man to get ready than for a woman to get ready, but I’ll ask anyway: Who are you wearing?
Wilson: Well generally, my go-to brand is Top Man from Top Shop, and I like it just because their cuts naturally fit my body type. I kind of have more like a soccer player’s body, so I like it. I like British fashion. I think the Brits have it right.
“The Young and the Restless’” Hunter King (Summer Newman) may have taken home the award for Outstanding Younger Actress during the 41st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards, but she certainly wasn’t expecting it! Read on to find out what she had to say about her potential speech during her walk down the red carpet!
Soap Opera Network: Love the dress! You look stunning, which is so appropriate for your big night!
King: Thank you! It’s Forever Unique.
Well it’s certainly unique! Why did you choose this one over all the other dresses in the world?
I was actually trying to stay away from black, because I wore black last year, but immediately, I saw it and thought, “I have to have it!” I’m very girly, so all the detailing on the sides and the beading [caught my attention]. I was very excited for it.
