2010 Emmy Awards – Maria Menounos In Ralph & Russo

Sexy Back Award
On Friday I showed you the sketch of Maria Menounos’ Ralph & Russo custom gown.

I prayed that she would bring the gown to life and she didn’t let me down.

I love a sexy low-cut back, but this gown also has a cut-out on the side.

The gown is adorned with more than 15,000 hand sewn Swarovski Elements, and was inspired by 1920s old Hollywood glamour.

Some of you wished this gown had been given to an A list star, but I think Maria more than does this gown justice.

It’s old Hollywood perfection which is complete with her wavy updo.

    Maybe too much cut-outs. She is however a very beautiful girl.

      I agree about the pageant gown – it looks like something one of the Miss Universe contenders might have worn last week. Love her hair and makeup, though.

    Beautiful and styled perfectly. The red lip was the perfect touch.

      I agree with you.It’s the second time I have this feeling with a Ralph&Russo dress after Beyonce’s dress.

  8. Caroline August 30, 2010 at 00:55 #

    Love this dress! In my opinion, the best look of the night!!

  9. Raquel August 30, 2010 at 01:13 #

    Maybe too low on the back for my personal taste, but she looks stunning and I like the dress – this comng from someone who is not a fan of cut outs. The make up is stunning – love the red lipstick – and I want that hair!

  10. Amber August 30, 2010 at 01:29 #

    love the back of the dress.

    • shubby doo August 31, 2010 at 19:26 #

      me too…i sooooo wish i could pull this off.

  11. frommdq August 30, 2010 at 01:48 #

    Better than the sketch, amazing.

  12. Linda August 30, 2010 at 02:13 #

    Really beautiful execution of this dress. It’s so much more beautiful than the sketches suggested. She looks nothing short of amazing (and I personally don’t like cutouts, but here they work really well).

  13. Jen August 30, 2010 at 02:19 #

    She looks lovely in it, a-list or not!

  14. Lance August 30, 2010 at 02:42 #

    Best Dressed! This is really stunning. It’s a tie between Maria and Nina Dobrev in Zuhair Murad IMO.

  15. Alicat August 30, 2010 at 03:03 #

    Many tried the daring look but this nails it. Spectacular!

  16. mari August 30, 2010 at 04:24 #

    what A-lister has the body to pull this off? maybe Hilary Swank, and that’s it, others would not wear a dress like this. It’s beautfulo, but not for everyone.

  17. mandy August 30, 2010 at 09:21 #

    Oh thank god for Maria. Best Dress of the Night! Bless her!

  18. JJ August 30, 2010 at 10:04 #

    YUMMY, thought without the back I doubt I’d remember this dress.

  19. Ayesha August 30, 2010 at 11:47 #

    and what an amazing body!

  20. Elise August 30, 2010 at 13:20 #

    She is my favorite (with Heidi Klum in Marchesa)! The dress is amazing, and Maria looks perfect !

  21. JJovana August 30, 2010 at 14:56 #

    That body deserves dress like that!! She looks sexy and classy. Love love it.

  22. gossip_bangkok August 30, 2010 at 15:06 #

    WOW! Love it!

  23. susan August 30, 2010 at 15:35 #

    It’s pretty – it would have been better if it didn’t cut out like that on the waist.

  24. Ondo Lady August 30, 2010 at 15:43 #

    Wow!! Talk about bringing sexy to The Emmys. This is a really wonderful and sexy dress. I have no idea who this lady is but she gets top marks for this hot number.

  25. Danielle August 30, 2010 at 20:25 #

    Very Jennifer Lopez, its okay

  26. Kim August 30, 2010 at 22:33 #

    Oh my goodness her BUTT looks amazing! LOL

  27. Deborah August 30, 2010 at 23:29 #

    LOVED IT! The hair, the make up… BEAUTIFUL!

  28. Martine August 30, 2010 at 23:34 #

    HOT, HOT, HOT. I just happened to watch the episode of her show that showed her deciding on this dress; I knew that dress would Rock It!!!

  29. mochababe73 August 31, 2010 at 04:24 #

    I love the back, but I am not fond of the beading. The bodice looks heavy and overdone. And, I think that the cut outs are too far in the front.

  30. Marvel August 31, 2010 at 13:05 #

    The sketch looks better. I dont really like how the colour shifts from one to another and while I do like the cut out details, I hate he make up and hair.
