2009 Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s Annual Installation Luncheon

The “Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s Annual Installation Luncheon” is the event so show-off a cute cocktail dress.

This is not the right occasion for a full-length gown, which is why Emmy Rossum wore a stunning mini white version of the silvery Carolina Herrera Resort 2010 gown presented on the runway.

Talk about a knock-out. Emmy just gets better and better for me. I barely remember the girl that used to dress like she was going to the prom for every event.

She looks sexy, confident and for some reason taller. But I just guess that because she’s showing off her toned legs and wearing nude Jimmy Choo ‘Seattle’ platforms.

Evan Rachel Wood posed on the red carpet wearing a red, black and white dot printed halter dress, with a black belt to give it some shape.

The star wore the same Jimmy Choo ‘Gesture’ platforms as Britney Spears at the Teen Choice Awards, whilst carrying a black clutch.

Her flame red hair was swept back into a classic updo.

Rose McGowan opted for a white jersey cap sleeve Balenciaga Resort 2009 dress.

The fitted dress is printed with rows of tiny black dots, and is gathered on the hip and bodice giving Rose’s curves even more definition.

She paired her dress with a dazzling embellished clutch and tan pumps.

Jordana Brewster goes back to her cute ways after a sexier look at the Teen Choice Awards.

The actress who wears her hair in a ponytail 90% of the time she steps on the red carpet, wore a Naeem Khan Resort 2009 ensemble consisting of a navy cashmere scoop neck tank with jeweled edging around the neckline, paired with a navy bell-shaped paillette embroidered skirt with a black satin waistband.

Black accessories complete the look.

Carla Gugino wore a satin black jersey wrap Reem Acra dress with a jeweled detail on the hip.

We recently saw Katherine Heigl wear the electric blue runway version on Letterman.

Sergio Rossi T-bar sandals and a black clutch complete the look.

Kerry Washington never lets me down on the red carpet.

I adore her in this girlie pink Camilla & Marc halter dress, which she teams matching box clutch and Miu Miu snakeskin pumps.

Make-up, hair, everything is flawless.  *sighs*

Eva Longoria also wore Reem Acra. Her black dress was covered with rosette details embroidered onto the bodice.

It’s a nice dress, but I would have loved to see her wear something more colourful.

Trib Two’s are standard.

    When I first saw Emmy, I thought she was wearing a Herve Leger dress. Glad I was mistaken!

    Kerry looks amazing, as always. I want her shoes!

    Wow Emmy Rossum looks gorgeous! So do Kerry and Carla. I have to say that Evan Rachel Wood really doesnt suit that neckline, she looks odd.

    I saw Kerry Washington and my jaw literally dropped. She looks amazing. The color of the dress perfectly compliments her skin-tone and the shoes were a great choice, not too safe and not too out there. Perfect combo. Speaking of shoes…do you know what label they are?

      still looking for the shoes. Will let you know if I find them

    • Fashion Critic August 13, 2009 at 08:59 #

      They are Miu Miu

    Kerry Washington is seriously a vision of divine beauty here! Absolutely gorgeous! Emmy comes second since i like the direction her style has taken. Jordana also looks really nice..while Eva is getting more boring by every appearance..

    • Fashion Critic August 12, 2009 at 14:11 #

      I agree about Eva

  5. Mimi August 12, 2009 at 14:27 #

    Kerry just looks perfect!

  6. Chiara August 12, 2009 at 17:12 #

    Love the looks there, perfect!

    Kerry is so cute! Ihope to see her in BDOTW.

    Emmy is also pretty, but where is her usual ladylike style?

    As soon as I saw Kerry’s dress, I knew it was by an Australian designer. Their cocktail dresses are always so distinctively aussie – I guess it’s that carefree, beachy vibe? Anyway, the dress is gorgeous and I just can’t gush enough about how beautiful she is, she really does have just the most perfect, perfect, gorgeous skin tone and colour, she looks edible! Just beautiful!!
