Lorena Sarbu Dresses Emmy Nominees Tamara Braun and Emily O'Brien for the 36th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards

BEVERLY HILLS, CA--(Marketwire - August 28, 2009) - Sophistication, savvy and beauty synthesize on the eve of Sunday, August 30, 2009, engendered by Lorena Sarbu ( Lorena Sarbu, an emerging designer and discoverer of ingénue designers, will create a unique, exclusive couture piece for two of television's hottest young actresses and Emmy nominees Tamara Braun and Emily O'Brien.

Tamara Braun is nominated for Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series for her role as Ava Vitali on "Days of Our Lives." This is the young starlet's second Emmy nomination. Ever since Braun stepped into the popular role of Port Charles' Carly Corninthos in 2001, her star has been rocketing, both commercially and critically. Viewers will also know Braun from her noteworthy performances in "The Sentinel," "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," "The Pretender" and the feature films "Soul Food" and "Fallen Arches." For Braun, Lorena Sarbu dreamt up a sexy, pewter chiffon and silk mermaid gown with a daring plunge back, beautifully accented with Lorena Sarbu vintage hardware.

Emily O'Brien is nominated for a Daytime Emmy in the category of Outstanding Younger Actress in a Drama Series for her portrayal of Jana Hawkes on "The Young and the Restless." Referred to as the Audrey Hepburn of daytime, it was only natural O'Brien chose Lorena Sarbu to conceive the perfect gown melded with sophisticated elegance and reflections of a homage to the past. The dress Sarbu designed for O'Brien's inaugural nomination is nothing short of stunning. Made of Italian silk chiffon, the gown is amber-effected-blue that beautifully dances from a soft turquoise blue to lilac and lavender. The true beauty lies in not only the dress and its exquisite construction, but the vintage jewel encrusted earrings that are used to create the one-of-a-kind belt. Airy and light, the gown is reminiscent of something only Grace Kelly would adorn.
