Jennifer Carpenter In Tony Ward Couture – 2011 Emmy Awards

Jennifer Carpenter sparkled as she hit the red carpet at the 2011 Emmy Awards tonight.

The actress wore a Tony Ward Spring 2011 Couture gown.

Her gown with a thigh-high split is sexy, embellished and it fits her like a glove, so why don’t I love it?

Maybe it’s because I’m tiring of nude gowns.

Maybe she’s not selling the look to me, or maybe this look feels a bit dated.

    Agree FC. Tired of nude and I thought it looked dated.

    She looks stunning! I love the nude it’s always a classic.

    She looks super chic, love the dress………….

    Really? I love this, think she looks gorgeous! She’s completely working the look. One of my faves tonight.

    It looks generic and cheap. The dresses tonight were very classy and elegant; this just looks way too sexed up.

    I think she looks really hot, it fits her like a glove like you said, and looking that good without the belt is hard, but she has the body to pull that off, and the hair compliments the sexiness of the look. I think is a gorgeous look, but, i think what happened to you is that, with other really great looks in this red carpet, i think this is not a shocker is just like oh she looks hot. Not like WOW. :)

      that is the other factor…better dresses on this red carpet.

    I don’t mind the nude so much, but I felt this dress was really lacking the belt.

    it looks like cavalli from 1999…….and thats not a compliment

    gorgeus!

  10. Kin September 19, 2011 at 09:08 #

    She’s sucking the elegance right out of this look..

  11. Lucía September 19, 2011 at 10:01 #

    I actually liked the belt: maybe it wouldn’t have worked for her

  12. Lauren September 19, 2011 at 10:54 #

    She looks gorgeous but the minute I saw it I thought I had saw it all before.

    I think it’s the combo of her leg and boobs out. I want to see one or the other, not both.

    • DivaDebbi (blog) September 19, 2011 at 13:34 #

      Yes! One or the other other would have been better. Good call.

  14. Kaz September 19, 2011 at 11:23 #

    Nice frock but I feel that it’s an inch or two too long for her. Plus I think her hair is terrible.

  15. Marvel September 19, 2011 at 11:53 #

    Its Okay I suppose. A bit too Cavalli which isnt a good thing

  16. noo September 19, 2011 at 13:04 #

    i love this dress on her, but i guess i’ve always been a fan of her style! what is bothering me is the bust, it just seems to me like she got something done which is a shame because i used to love her body type!!!!

  17. Linda September 19, 2011 at 14:36 #

    Her hair ruins the look.

  18. Julie September 19, 2011 at 15:23 #

    I think she looks good. Is it me or does her chest look bigger than normal?

  19. Alina September 19, 2011 at 16:28 #

    I love it ! :D

  20. Bianca September 19, 2011 at 17:50 #

    She looks stunning in that Tony Ward dress… Amazing!!!!

  21. Hannah September 19, 2011 at 18:53 #

    She’s nto selling it IMO. This isn’t that different from teh beaded de la renta gown that Gisele wore witht he hot pink bow belt, but she was killing that dress, and Jennifer looks tired, frankly. Also this exact dress, nude/blush/gold, with a column shape adn beading has been done a million times over on this carpet, and better.

    • Fashion Critic September 19, 2011 at 19:05 #

      she does look tired.

  22. beadingchef September 19, 2011 at 21:51 #

    I think that she looks fabulous, the dress fit her perfectly, I liked the styling, and although nude is getting tired she did it well.
