Zooey Deschanel In Reem Acra – 2012 Emmy Awards

Zooey Deschanel was one of the many actresses lucky enough to have a gown custom made for the 2012 Emmy Awards, so why does she look so unhappy?

The stunning actress often veers too far into the ‘quirky’ territory when it comes to the red carpet, but on Sunday she just looked gorgeous in her custom Reem Acra gown.

Her pale blue strapless sweetheart neckline tiered tulle gown has just enough old-school glam to fit Zooey’s aesthetic, but the modern laser-cut detailing has me dying for more.

Fuchsia-pink lips and a bouffant low bun complete the look.

    She explained to Ellen that because Nicole Kidman was there at the same time she arrived and the photographers makes her so confused and give up,look it up on youtube.

    The sour face may have had to do with her dress catching on Lucy Liu’s. Whoops!

    I am wondering if she worn black tights under the dress 😉

    Stunning! Is definitely one of the best dressed of the night!!!

    Not a fan, too princessy/ballet gala.

    that dress is stunning! I love everything about this look. The pink lips are the perfect touch.

    Gorgeous dress, but not on her!

  8. andrea September 24, 2012 at 15:11 #

    This is too much fabric and its too bridal for me.

  9. Jones19 September 24, 2012 at 15:09 #

    She looks like a beautiful princess here. Love everything. The laser cut details are to die for!

    I’m just amazed with this perfect gown. I love Zooey so much and this Reem Acra just looks gorgeous on her…I don’t think that she usually fails on the red carpet, she has a very personal style and knows what’s best for her figure,no matter what the trends are.

    I love the dress,but she’s always so frigide..

    I love the gown, it’s stunning, but it’s sitting too low and her facial expression bothers me too much. She had a chance to make this look one of her best looks ever, but she failed a bit.

    love the dress, hate the hair

  15. towanda September 24, 2012 at 08:08 #

    i think she’s too pale for this color and i don’t like hair. it’s a no from me

  16. firien September 24, 2012 at 07:41 #

    I adore everything, except the pose

  17. Cindy September 24, 2012 at 03:22 #

    I think she looks lovely, but I agree with Emma, I just don’t like these low riding tops.

  18. TL September 24, 2012 at 02:47 #

    Sensational and chic. Love everything except the hair style.
    The bangs really bother me, it looks like she is wearing a black cap backwards.

    I love this dress, she is usually a disaster on the red carpet IMO, or has been recently, but there is no hint of dowdy school teacher in this outfit at all. A cocktail ring would have made it even mroe amazing, but in my eyes a cocktail ring makes everything more amazing. I just wish she knew how ot pose, she looks uncomfortable and her posture is awful.

    Love the color, adore the beautiful, beautiful skirt but not the meh, lowriding top. I think this look is very close to (in all but color) look 13 of the Reem Acra Resort 2013 collection. I wish Zooey had ditched the bangs for this occasion and opted for softer makeup.

  21. Christine September 24, 2012 at 02:26 #

    A bit costumey but it works. On the Emmys and for Zoey.

  22. Odette September 24, 2012 at 02:23 #

    A bright smile, dazzling diamonds and a silver Leiber clutch would’ve been perfecto.

  23. Anderbobo September 24, 2012 at 02:23 #

    That sour puss look is killing an otherwise knockout gown.

    I LOVE THIS DRESS OMG! and she only look unhappy in these pictures, i saw others and she look really stunning and smiling

  25. jeremy September 24, 2012 at 02:21 #

    Idk why but the second I saw her pics, I was on the floor laughing so hard. Her painful expression is so unintentionally funny for me.

    Madly deeply in love with this dress on Zooey. Adore the hair and makeup too.
