Julia Stiles was the first to wear this Tracy Reese Fall 2010 dress to the “Green Zone” New York premiere back in February.

Her dress was fresh off the runway as it had been presented just 10 days prior to her premiere.

Black tights – it was a snowy February in New York – a gold Cole Haan clutch and Giuseppe Zanotti ankle strap patent heels complete the look.

Taraji P. Henson wore the same dress to the 2010 VH1 Hip Hop Honors in New York City a few months later.

She kept her look equally simple pairing her dress with a stack of bangles, black peep-toes with a matching clutch.

Julia has never interested me on the red carpet, and this look is no exception.

Taraji doesn’t win by default, she wins because she was absolutely glowing in this dress. The colour was amazing against her skin and the style suited her personality.
