Emily Mortimer opted for a soft, ethereal look on the red carpet at the ‘Hugo’ LA premiere on Monday night.

The British actress wore a heavenly blush Valentino Spring 2012 gown with lemon and black embroidered details.

Whilst the gown is beautiful, there is something missing.

It bugged me for a while, but I think she needed to add a belt to define her waist, or a contrasting-coloured clutch to breathe some life into the look.

The nude pumps don’t help prevent it from feeling a tad one note.

Smoky eyes and wavy locks completed the look.

Gorgeous or washed out?
