Following an unfortunate showing at the 2012 MTV Movie Awards on Sunday night, Julianne Hough quickly bounced back at the 2012 CFDA Fashion Awards, held in New York City on Monday night.

Julianne looked stunning wearing a Kaufmanfranco Chinese red stretch-crepe gown.

Flashing some skin in a plunging neckline, the petite actress manages to look both sweet and slightly sexy – just the right fit for her bubbly persona.

I’m glad that Julianne ignored the urge to add a sparkly necklace to her bare collarbone – diamond earrings and a gold box clutch to match the metallic belt buckle are just the right amount of bling.

A purposely messy updo and smoky eyes complete the look.
