Julianne Hough In Emilio De La Morena -  'An Evening with Nicholas Sparks'

Julianne Hough stepped out Wednesday to celebrate writer and rom-com hitmaker Nicholas Sparks at ‘An Evening with Nicholas Sparks’ at Waterstones Piccadilly in London.

The actress, who was there to promote her Sparks movie ‘Safe Haven’, wore a burgundy hot dress from Emilio De La Morena Fall 2012.

The skin-tight oxblood gown featured a sexy yet conservative leather bodice. The silhouette is beautifully simple in contrast to the edgy design.

The dancer-turned-actress made the gown look even more spectacular than on the runway. I’m glad Julianne went for an edgier look, as her style tends to flip-flop back towards sweet and ethereal, which I don’t think suits her well.

Julianne stuck to what she knows best: a slightly smokey eye and light pink lip. The makeup paired well with a unfussy updo and gold jewels.
