Fashion star, TV personality and PEOPLE StyleWatch Style Council member Louise Roe has taken us inside some of the most exclusive bashes in Hollywood before — from New York Fashion Week to Cannes to the Oscars. And now with the Emmys mere hours away, she’s giving us a backstage look at her preparations for the red carpet, from her favorite Monique Lhuillier gowns (the label’s a go-to for Roe) to the shoes and bags she’s considering. “This year I’m reporting live for Access Hollywood. I’m looking for an eye-catching outfit, but also one I can stand in for four hours straight!” she tells PEOPLE. Check out her first-person dress-fitting diary, below, and tell us your top picks for the star — then scroll down to see if you predicted right?
