Hey there, I’m Emily Curl: video producer, entertainment host & red carpet correspondent.
It’s so nice to meet.
At my current role at Refinery29, my focus is primarily on producing entertainment and lifestyle content - from celebrity interviews, to live panels and events for our R29 employees, to co-producing and co-hosting a weekly pop-culture news show. I’m also a red carpet host and correspondent - interviewing the likes of Nicole Kidman, Margot Robbie, Jake Gyllenhaal, Normani, Lil Uzi Vert, Viola Davis, Issa Rae, Drew Barrymore and the entire cast of Mamma Mia! In London (yes, including Cher!!). I’m well-versed in live event coverage, social content, and all things fashion and beauty.
I think you should take your job seriously, but not yourself - that is the best combination.

I studied Digital & Broadcast Journalism at The University of Georgia and also have an affinity for the GA Bulldogs, Bachelor in Paradise and everything about country music.
On a given Saturday you can find me thrifting for the perfect new vintage top, reading on my roof in Brooklyn, and drinking craft IPAs with a few of my best friends.
I’m just really happy to be here.
Every Friday, we break down the everything that entertainment lovers missed in a show called The Mention. From the juiciest drama, to the movies that are a must-see, to the newest album, to red carpet looks we are drooling over, we did all the research so you didn’t have to. It’s also equipped with live celebrity interviews and cocktails. Cheers!

I went to the NFL Draft - & this is what I learned
Football is something that has been a part of me since birth. Both of my parents were University of Georgia alums, and I’ll never forget the awe I felt when we took family trips back to the campus to cheer on their alma mater. It was a sea of black and red in the stadium, and I couldn’t wait to be a part of it.
When I ended up attending the school myself, it only affirmed that childhood passion — I loved the sport, the coaches, and screaming my head off in a stadium decked out in my teams' colors alongside 100,000+ other people. So when P&G asked me to come out to the 2018 NFL draft in Dallas and cover a panel called The Huddle: An Intimate Conversation About Women & Football, I was thrilled — especially because it’s a topic that doesn’t get spoken about enough…

I’m a feminist and a country music fan - and these women are part of the reason
Growing up in Georgia, country music was a way that I shared my emotions — from Friday night bonfires in the backyard to my very first high school heartbreak. I can associate some of my favorite memories with a specific country song; like that time my family rented an eight-person van for a road trip and sang “Folsom Prison” by Johnny Cash on repeat, or the first time I got homesick at college and listened to Zac Brown Band’s “Chicken Fried” until my tears dried. While I’m forever grateful for those songs, as I grew up, I did start to notice a problem — there were always more men on country radio then women…

The simple morning routine that always keeps my skin hydrated for fall
When it comes to all things beauty, I'm an unapologetic fangirl (just see what happened when I had to casually breakup with most of my products for 3 whole days). I love wearing and experimenting with makeup because it makes me feel more like myself, ready to confidently meet the world. That also means I'm always switching up my morning routine, searching for the easiest, most affordable ways to keep my skin looking hydrated and glowing, with or without my go-to foundation. And when the temperatures start to drop (or, at least, should start to drop), I step up my skin-care regimen, relying on a few basics that take off every bit of my eyeshadow/concealer/liquid lipstick while still nourishing my face…
