Paula Patton In Monique Lhuillier – 2012 NAACP Image Awards

My reaction to seeing Paula Patton at the 2012 NAACP Image Awards, held at The Shrine Auditorium in LA last night was, “YES”.

Finally the beautiful actress is living up to her potential and giving me nothing to complain about.

She looked outstanding wearing a Monqiue Lhuiller Spring 2011 gown.

The apple red raffia embroidered strapless column gown was teamed with some magnificent gold jewels.

Seeing her looking so good here, I can’t help it wonder why things went so wrong during her MI:4 promo tour.

    It is a bit too tight in the bust area, but the brilliant color and intricate pattern are great on her. The best she’s looked in ages!

    She looks great, absolutely amazing. Thank goodness she’s back.

    Paula Patton and Monique Lhullier look like a great partnership with her Golden Globe look and now this one. It is a fabulous look and this is definitely showcasing her potential

    She is unbelievably gorgeous and Monique Lhuillier seems to work for her, she looked beautiful the yellow gown at the Globes. But she doesn’t seem comfortable here…but maybe as has been said she just needs some posing lessons!

    The fit of this dress if off for me. Looks just a bit too small (which is often the case with her).

      Yep, I agree — it’s too tight and too short; like the bottom was lopped off — an odd fit.

    she is a gorgeous woman but i just can’t love anything that she wears.

    Just like when she wore that bright yellow gown at the Golden Globes, when she gets her color choice right, her beauty radiates.

    Reminds me a bit of Rosario’s dress. I think if she was taller the dress would look better. But it is a vast improvement from many of her other looks.

    I do not know whatbit is, but something is wrong here, or lacking.
    How cana woman as pretty, tall, an amazon, just cannot find her own style?
    Out of ten different looks, she looks good in 1 or 2, when she can do better.

    now can someone tell her how to pose on the RC? that is totally distracting

    • Laura February 19, 2012 at 11:15 #

      Was just about to say the same thing! Paula needs a posing lesson ASAP. Calling Lea Michelle!

    the dress is pretty but i don’t think she delivered it well..

  14. Rebecca Z February 18, 2012 at 20:47 #

    Home run in my opinion. Dress and color are very flattering. She could have worn her hair 100% up, but I think this looks lovely.

    LOVE the gown, the styling, all spot on, but not really excited about it on her, would’ve preferred it on someone who could deliver a more spectacular silhouette.

  16. Hannah February 18, 2012 at 19:46 #

    My reaction was pretyt much hte same, oh my god she doesn’t look terrible.
    The only issue I have is with her hair, which is a constant issue for me, it just looks a bit messy, like she did it herself.
