Mayim Bialik: My Night at the Emmys in Photos

By at 1:07 pm

1. Getting ready with Robert Ramos, who does my hair (his assistant Lorena took the picture). Yes, I am wearing a Star Wars T-shirt. We ordered vegan Thai Iced Teas and listened to Neko Case’s “Fox Confessor Brings the Flood” and “Blacklisted” albums. Fancy Assistant Brandon and I did some emailing catch up and then he left us all to finish getting me ready.

2. Team Mayim: Robert again, make up artist Linda Cowan (who worked on “Blossom” and also does my make-up on TBBT), and stylist Ja-Niya Walker (who also styled my Cliche magazine shoot and styles me for “Candid Camera”). The sheet on the floor is because my house is under major construction and not only did we get me ready on a dusty dust-coated floor (hence the sheet I am standing on), the demolition of an entire bathroom literally above our heads went on for the entire three and a half hours we were getting me ready. The whole team agreed that it was the most unusual preparation for an awards show they had ever participated in. Read the rest of this entry →

Mayim at the Emmys: The Dress, the Jewelry, The Hand & More

With TBBT executive producer, Bill Prady.

It’s not new news that I’m moderately fashion-challenged. The search for this year’s Emmy dress, which went incredibly smoothly by all accounts, was still a real challenge for someone who generally wears mostly black, right down to my Converse.

Being nominated for an Emmy, however, required me to allow my stylist and hair and makeup artist and publicist and manager to share and have a vote in decisions from what my dress would look like, what shoes I would wear, what color my nails should be, what jewelry I should wear, and even what purse I should hold on the red carpet. Oh, yeah: we also had to decide what we would do about my injured right hand since I still wear a compression glove and splint everyday.

Here’s how Emmy night shook down. Read the rest of this entry →

Mayim at the Emmys: Pictures and Quotes from the Red Carpet

By at 2:26 pm

Over the last couple of weeks Mayim kept us up to date on her dress-search progress and when she finally decided on a gown by Pamella Roland, we knew what color to expect (a deep burgundy) but not how the complete look would come together.

Long story short: it came together beautifully.

The gown was complimented by Mayim’s mezuzah necklace, which was designed for her by North American Jewelers. The layered necklace was finished just days ago with a sapphire and a blood-free diamond. Read the rest of this entry →

The Emmys Necklace: One Tiny Conflict-Free Diamond

By at 4:20 pm

diamondRemember my previous post? About the mezuzah I’m having designed for the Emmys? Remember my comment about “no blood diamonds please”?

Well, my mezuzah, I have been informed, will have a small diamond. But it will be perfectly… kosher! Here’s why. Turns out it’s not just left-wing social activist hippies like me who care about this stuff.

The Emmys Necklace: Designing Something Jewish

By at 8:17 pm

mayim bialik at reception for emmy-nominated peersThe search for a mezuzah to wear to the Emmys is on. Let’s call it Operation Motzi Mezuzah, shall we? Last we spoke, stylist Alison Kahn was beginning a search for a jewelry designer to craft a mezuzah that is red carpet appropriate and, as Ali might put it, “fabulous,” “awesome,” and “aMAzing,” because stylists use those kinds of words a lot.

Ali works with a set of jewelry designers and manufacturers collectively known as North American Jewelers, Inc. She also works with the The Palladium Alliance since she likes that metal because it’s a luxurious precious metal that is hypoallergenic, so it is sensitive to your skin…and best yet, it is lightweight. We had a conference call, all four of us: Ali, me, Heather Tucholski from The Palladium Alliance, and the CFO of North American Jewelers, Martin “Marty” Weinberger. That’s right, folks. Marty’s Jewish. Marty knows what a mezuzah is. Marty’s got the skills to make Operation Motzi Mezuzah happen. Go, Marty, go! Read the rest of this entry →

Getting Ready for the Emmys with Mayim Bialik

Inspiration for my dress: John Singer Sargent's Lady Agnew

After the initial hysteria about my Emmy nomination abated and after my parents stopped crying with joy and after I returned from Atlanta, which is where I was when I found out I got nominated, my thoughts turned to the practicalities of Emmy night. Namely, what was I going to wear?

Last year I wrote a very in depth four-part series entitled Operation Hot and Holy, detailing my search for a tznius (modest) Emmy dress. When all was said and done, I ended up with a dress that I loved last year, but as my set of essays described, the journey there was long, complicated, and full of dresses that revealed more of me than I prefer to.

This year, I have a stylist I love, a nomination to my name, and hopefully the search will be easier. Here’s where we’re at dress-wise. Read the rest of this entry →
