You couldn’t help but take notice of Lena Headey on the red carpet at the 2012 Emmy Awards on Sunday evening.

The ‘Game of Thrones’ actress went against the nude and citrus trend opting for more drama wearing a black Armani Privé dress.

Her silk and lace spaghetti straps dress encrusted with black paillettes was styled with a black silk netting overlay, creating an ethereal effect.

Do you think this look is too dramatic for a sunny Sunday evening, or was she right to make an effort to stand out?
