Academy of Television Arts & Sciences’ Performers Peer Group Cocktail Reception

Stars of the small screen hit the red carpet for the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences’ performers peer group cocktail reception held at the Sheraton Hotel on Monday in Universal City, California.

The event was more like an LBD convention, with most of the leading ladies sticking to dark tones and few managing to stand out on this red carpet.

Sofia Vergara: The ‘Modern Family’ actress displayed her curves in a figure-hugging black-lace For Love & Lemon ‘Scarlet’ dress. The long-sleeve mini dress was styled with tights and black pumps. I couldn’t be more depressed viewing this look.

Julie Bowen: Sofia’s co-star also opted for a sombre look. Her black Christophe Josse Spring 2012 organza, tulle and lace ruffled frock was styled with black peep-toes.

Zooey Deschanel: Even though the ‘New Girl’ star also opted for black, her Dolce & Gabbana polka-dot dress with light ruffles had a playful vibe. Shimmering nude tights and black pumps completed the look.

Maya Rudolph: The actress wore a simple black short-sleeve dress. This look, including the grey pumps, is an almost identical look to the one she sported on ‘Jay Leno’ this week.

Amy Poehler The actress wore a Veronica Beard black scuba dress from the designers Fall 2012 collection.

Victoria Summer: The actress switches things up, somewhat, by teaming her LBD with nude accessories.

This has got to be the most boring red-carpet event of the year.

    I am SO disturbed by the amount of black on this RC! Did I miss national LBD day or something? SERIOUSLY! Zooey and Julie look good–their dresses aren’t boring. Sofia looks trashy, and the other three are SUCH a snooze.

    First thing that came to mind: Funeral.

    I was just asking myself where on hell someone could wear these hideous shimmering tights. Here in Brazil it’s pretty rare.

    In the middle of this funeral, the polka dot dress of Zooey Deschanel kind of keep our sights off her ridiculous grandma tights. No, actually it doesn’t. Ahrg!

    Holy Hannah..boring black is back.. so sad!!!

    I dont know why but it seems that Zooey Deschanel’s charisma pales in comparison with her character, Jess. Her styling is always blahhh and her make up seems odd, like she is always using the wrong shade of foundation. And Victoria Summers seems to be best dressed here. Despite the LBD.

    i want to like julie bowen’s but something about it really overwhelms her small frame. I am shocked to see sofia vergara in a silhouette other than a strapless mermaid so thats refreshing. overall pretty dull. maybe there was a dress code?

  8. Mikayla August 23, 2012 at 04:46 #

    I have a feeling that there must have been a dress code. No colours or something like that.
    I mean, there must have been…right?

    Is this a funeral?

  10. François Bresmal August 22, 2012 at 23:50 #

    There was a black memo or something??? Funny though

  11. Amy August 22, 2012 at 23:33 #

  12. Ancika August 22, 2012 at 23:29 #

    Hahahaha! YOu really made me laugh, FC. Thank you for that. 🙂

      😀 same here !

  13. dee August 22, 2012 at 23:18 #

    Boring, boring, boring. I don’t mind black but these looks are a snoozefest.

  14. Moxie August 22, 2012 at 20:26 #

    Was there a memo telling them all to wear black? Zoey is the best of the group, and she looks boring.

  15. Jones19 August 22, 2012 at 19:29 #

    The bottom row is hilarious, looks like a funeral!

    • HM August 23, 2012 at 07:09 #

      My thoughts exactly! Lol-ed so hard at the bottom row as it looks like they’re wearing the same dress with different sleeves! Either this was definitely a boring LBD convention or a secret funeral…

  16. Irmina August 22, 2012 at 19:16 #

    as a funeral! So boring…

  17. Xiomalys Crespo August 22, 2012 at 18:54 #

    Was this a funeral? Dear God…

  18. Parvati August 22, 2012 at 18:43 #

    what a hideous group of outfits. Somber can only be ok when styled well, but this group of celebrities is just boring beyond belief. I guess my favorite would be Julie Bowen (by default.)

  19. Malinda Jane August 22, 2012 at 18:42 #

    This is so funny to me. Did they call each other to coordinate red carpet looks?

  20. Anne g August 22, 2012 at 18:27 #

    Very boring but I like amy poehler’dress and her shoes.

  21. Nat39 August 22, 2012 at 18:27 #

    If I had to pick one that would be Julie Bowen.
    The worst one – Sofia looking trashy.

    I thought you were kidding about the LBDs before I scrolled down. None of them are even close to being anything special…..

  23. robbie August 22, 2012 at 18:13 #

    what a major snoozefest!

  24. Ellie August 22, 2012 at 18:06 #

    Haha I find this funny!

  25. Lauren August 22, 2012 at 18:04 #

    Wow, I feel like I could sleep looking at this. So bland.

    • Christine August 23, 2012 at 00:27 #

      LOL. Everyone is going to a funeral. So depressing!
