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.
