Jennifer Carpenter usually opts for long, fitted gowns, but yesterday evening she chose a shorter hemline for the 2012 SAG Awards.

The ‘Dexter’ star, nominated for ‘Best Ensemble Cast’, wore an Emilio Pucci Spring 2012 dress.

Her red beaded dress with a bateau neckline was teamed with simple patent Jimmy Choo ‘Vita’ nude peep-toe platforms.

Jennifer’s body and legs look outstanding in this dress. It’s refreshing to see a different look from her.

Ombre waves and an oval clutch finish the look.
