The countdown to Sunday nights Emmy Awards kicked off yesterday evening as Audi & Chopard hosted a party to celebrate the much anticipated first major red carpet event of Awards Season.

Jessica Lowndes attended the “Emmy Week Kick-Off Party” in LA wearing a Matthew Williamson Resort 2011 plunging dress with a pleated skirt.

Her brown and gold printed dress almost has an LV luggage type feel to it.

What I really like about this look is the orange belt which adds a nice finishing touch.

I loved her chocolate coloured Stuart Weitzman ‘Lillie’ peep-toes, but the clutch doesn’t work for me. It almost ruins this look in my eyes.

A small clutch matching her belt or heels would’ve been preferred.
