“Ugly Betty” actress Vanessa Williams hosted the 36th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards last night.

Not only did she host, but she also sang and danced her way through the award show, reminding me that she can of course sing and she isn’t just an actress.

My favourite gown was a strapless maroon column gown from Gustavo Cadile Fall 2009 collection.

The colour and the complementary accessories make Vanessa sparkle, as the gown skims her stunning curves.

Other looks included an eggplant plunging gown with a black sheer overlay.

For a performance with dancer Gilles Marini, she changed into a shorter golden dress with an embellished neckline, paired with silver strappy heels.

Her outstanding moment came wearing a white figure hugging Herve Leger gown, with scoop neckline embellished with stones.

A fine host if I ever saw one.
