real life emmy look...tina fey

You have to love Tina Fey.

Her show 30 Rock is a favorite here at b.i.r.l. and we adored her dead-on impersonation of Sarah Palin on SNL last weekend.

She's been nominated for an Emmy in the Best Lead Actress category and we totally couldn't agree more.

While we won't know what she's wearing until Sunday, InStyle gave a suggestion that they think would suit her well.

A gorgeous beaded dress from Monique Lhuillier.

We agree...but if she did wear it, they would probably make it gown length as it is the Emmy's and not the more laid-back Golden Globes.

If she was to wear this divine creation...and being gunmetal eyes are hot this fall...I'd love to see them play up hers in soft shades of gray.

Some metallic gray's I love?

CoverGirl CG Eyeslicks Gel Eyecolor in Midnight Metal ($6)
I love it because it's super easy to create a fabulous smudgy look with this pencil. Just draw a line along your upper and lower lashes, making the outer edge slightly thicker. Take your finger, a Q-Tip, or a brush and smudge out the line a little. Done.

Tarte Pressed Shadow in Luuucy I'm Home ($17). Love the name and the adorable purple packaging. The color is a gorgeous deep blue-gray with a subtle shimmer. Perfect for doing the ultimate gunmetal eye.

L'Oreal Eye Shadow Single in Pure Silver ($5). Another great option, that's very wallet friendly in the of-the-moment shimmery gray. Slightly lighter in color, this would be great all over the lid.

While you could go with the dark lip that's so in this season, I'd pair the gunmetal eyes with a nude-ish lip and just a hint of color on the cheeks!
