Padma Lakshmi In Monique Lhuillier – 2012 Emmy Awards

Padma Lakshmi gave me my first set of goosebumps tonight when she hit the red carpet at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live this evening for the 2012 Emmy Awards.

This orange Monique Lhuillier Resort 2013 strapless trumpet gown is to die for.

The beauty is in its simplicity and relaxed styling.

Opting for minimal jewels, natural makeup and glossy, wavy locks, the gown does all the talking.

    Now this is a STUNNER! My jaw hit the floor. The color is gorgeous against her skin tone. BDOTW!

    Not a word I use often- but Breathtaking.

    Monique Lhuillier is having quite a night, Padma and Ginnifer Goodwin both look so stunning. This one will be in my top five for sure.

    Ooh….this shows up so much better on here than actually on the red carpet (although, I admit, I saw crappy angles of it) I love it!!

    Gorgeous, great colour, stunning silhouette, beautiful styling, the only thing I’d perhaps add to this look is a ring but it’s fine without it.

    I’m in absolute awe. I think it is clear that if you want to be a standout on the emmy red carpet, wear a bright coloured strapless dress with a fitted bodice and big skirt.
    Also, orange is clearly the colour this year, which makes is doubly exciting!

    Gorgeous! Beautiful!

  8. Cindy September 24, 2012 at 00:05 #

    Spectacular! Flawless.

  11. Yeliz September 24, 2012 at 00:12 #

    She looks breathtaking, I simply love this look.

  12. fromchi-town September 24, 2012 at 00:16 #

    Wow… This is a total show stopper. She looks stunning.

  13. Zina September 24, 2012 at 00:33 #

    Breathtakingly beautiful. Unlike with most others at this event (IMO) Padma was wearing the gown and not the other way around!

  14. Grace Patricia September 24, 2012 at 00:43 #

    Amazing.

  15. AJ September 24, 2012 at 00:46 #

    Best dressed on the carpet for sure!

  16. CreoleLady September 24, 2012 at 00:54 #

    Momma said knock you out. OK, I just went extremely old school with an LL Cool J reference but my goodness, I don’t know if I have EVER seen her look this good.

  17. shaun September 24, 2012 at 01:23 #

    great color on her skin tone

  18. abasss September 24, 2012 at 02:27 #

    Gorgeous. My favourite so far, the orange looks amazing against her skin and the shape of the dress is stunning.

  19. Rebecca Z September 24, 2012 at 02:35 #

    Spectacular.

  20. carolina September 24, 2012 at 02:47 #

    Oh, perfection! Best I’ve seen so far.

  21. EmmaWoodhouse September 24, 2012 at 02:47 #

    I am the only one but I just…don’t like the dress in orange. Or on her.

  22. Odette September 24, 2012 at 04:20 #

    SWOON *on floor from Padma’s beautiful hotness*

    Padma looks best in Monique Lhuillier and Naeem Khan.

  23. Alina September 24, 2012 at 04:30 #

    LOVE! LOVE! LOVE!

  24. Christopher Teoh September 24, 2012 at 06:11 #

    Padma Laskhmi is entirely showstopping by wearing this strapless tangerine mermaid gown by Monique Lhuillier!! The Top Chef host let her gown do all the talking by keeping accessories to minimum and she still looks breathtaking!!! Sensational indeed!!

  25. Rashmi September 24, 2012 at 06:17 #

    Perfect.. As an Indian, I am extremely proud :)

  26. Aline September 24, 2012 at 06:48 #

    I can’t think of a more complimentary color for her skin tone. She looks fabulous. Definitely on my top 5.

  27. shap_half September 24, 2012 at 09:19 #

    She looks AMAZING. She blows the model out of the water, first. But overall, the simplicity of the entire thing is so captivating.

  28. irina September 24, 2012 at 10:46 #

    Wow!!! She looks amazing! Perfect dress, perfect color!! One of the best of the night IMO!!

  29. TeaAtTwo September 24, 2012 at 12:02 #

    Easily one of the best dressed, Padma looks stunning here; the colour is divine against her skin and fit is superb and I’m glad there are not over the top jewels.

    • Rash September 24, 2012 at 13:07 #

      +1. The simple styling is making her look absolutely STUNNNING !!!

  30. Joan September 24, 2012 at 17:39 #
