Emmy Rossum In Zuhair Murad – 2013 Billboard Music Awards

Emmy Rossum In Zuhair Murad - 2013 Billboard Music Awards

A standing ovation is already in order for Emmy Rossum who attended the 2013 Billboard Music Awards tonight at Las Vegas’s MGM Grand Garden Arena.

The actress just about shut down the show’s blue carpet, when she came on the scene in her black Zuhair Murad stunner from the Fall 2013 collection.

This is how to work that seemingly ubiquitous see-through trend in all the right ways.

Showing just enough skin to be dangerous with its refined keyhole cutout and transparent polka-dot tulle, the long-sleeve, mermaid-silhouette gown conveyed high-glamour—and just a touch of elegant goth—at its finest.

A fantastic pair of pendant earrings were all that was really needed in the accessories department, while Emmy’s loosely upswept ‘do and mauve-y nude makeup were an unexpectedly refreshing finish that I preferred to a standard red lip.

    Just wonderful!

    Completely agree with FC: this works the see-through trend without being at all vulgar. Sexy but not tarty or show-off. THUMBS UP.

    She looks fantastic. I j’adore this completely head to toe.

    I love polka dots but not the sheer skirt inserts. The silhouette is good and I love Emmy, but this is not wowing me. I do like velvet though.

  5. DM May 20, 2013 at 07:16 #

    I agree with the comments here about not caring about the black velvet not being quite season-appropriate. Emmy looks lovely here. At first I thought the gown was from Stella McCartney. The sheer trend is certainly done right here, nothing tacky, just glamorous, chic and understated while not eschewing drama. Great look!

    J’ADORE! Dear God! Can you imagine how much she would wow us if she ever went to Cannes?

    She’s the second person (after Zhang last year) who’s made me like a velvet gown. And honestly, I don’t care if it’s season or event appropriate, not when she looks this good.

    To start with, the gown is absolutely stunning, then we have the perfect styling (I mean, those earrings!!!!), beautiful hair and makeup and, most importantly, someone who sells what she’s wearing.

    Today was such a great day for fashion to me. I loved a lot of looks.

    One of the best use of sheer panels in a gown I’ve seen in a long time.

  8. Pedro May 20, 2013 at 03:22 #

    Wow… just WOW!

    Perfect and maybe her best look ever!!

    Wow… just WOW!

    Even with Cannes going on, this is a great look. Definite BDOTW contender. She looks perfect!!

  11. John May 20, 2013 at 02:34 #

    So proud of my baby Emmy on showing these girls how to dress for an event like this. Sexy without being too over the top. Love it! Emmy is too underrated. Cannot wait for Shameless to come back and for her other projects to come out. Keep up the good work Emmy xoxo

  12. Marybeth May 20, 2013 at 02:17 #

    I love this.
    I’ll concede that it’s not quite right for the season or the occasion but I can forgive that.
    She looks great!

      • Stephanie May 20, 2013 at 14:04 #

        Yes– I just love it too much to think about season or if she is warm in the Vegas heat. 🙂

  13. kane May 20, 2013 at 02:09 #

    I find the back a bit uninspired, but what can I say, another reason why she’s my fashion crush.

  14. Ismael Pecero May 20, 2013 at 01:54 #

    Beautiful dress and shw looks amazing but long sleeves and black velvet?? it’s almost summer and she’s in Las Vegas!

    • Kathy May 20, 2013 at 02:02 #

      Exactly. She must be roasting. I can just see her looking around at the other women there, thinking, “You mean it’s NOT winter awards season?”

    • CreoleLady May 20, 2013 at 02:20 #

      I did not realize the dress was velvet. Bummer. Velvet in Vegas in May is so wrong but she looks so good I don’t want to be right, lol.

  15. mandy May 20, 2013 at 01:53 #

    Wow the dress is stunning and sexy yet not over the top. I love her subtle make up and up do. Beautiful.

  16. Kathy May 20, 2013 at 01:47 #

    She looks stunning, but she is WAY overdressed. If you’re going to wear a full-blown gown to the Billboard Awards, at least wear a lighter color and ditch the heavy earrings. Great look, wrong occasion.

    • justme May 20, 2013 at 01:52 #

      A lot of the other ladies in attendance are wearing floor-length gowns too.

      • Kathy May 20, 2013 at 01:55 #

        Like I said, none as heavy, dark, and over-styled as this one. She needs to lighten up and let a summertime music award be what it is. This isn’t the Oscars.

  17. justme May 20, 2013 at 01:46 #

    Wow, her body looks sickening in this dress.
    I really like Emmy’s style, I don’t think I’ve ever seen her badly dressed and this is no exception.

  18. Nat39 May 20, 2013 at 01:44 #

    This is how it´s done indeed, sexy with just the right amount of daring, and not being overly revealing. The gown gives her such an amazing curvy silhouette. She looks sexy yet elegant without a hint of desperate/try-hard. Love it.

    • Nat39 May 20, 2013 at 01:57 #

      ..although I think her styling (esp. that updo) is a bit too mature/sophisticated/glamourous for the event, wish she had gone in a sleeker-sexier direction for the event, something more like the model.

  19. CreoleLady May 20, 2013 at 01:41 #

    WOW. She just made me fall in love with black again.

  20. Alicat May 20, 2013 at 01:39 #

    She looks beautiful. The dress is stunning on her. Sexy yet tasteful. This is how it’s done. She oozes sex appeal whereas Jennifer Morrison in her oh so obvious dress completely lacked it.

    • Yeliz May 20, 2013 at 08:51 #

      ITA. She looks so stunning, I’m in love with this look.

  21. Monica May 20, 2013 at 01:36 #

    Gorgeous!! Cannot get enough of her 🙂

  22. Elle May 20, 2013 at 01:34 #

    I think she is better dressed than all of the ladies at Cannes today.

    • Christine May 20, 2013 at 01:59 #

      + My first thought. She looks amazing!!

    • Emily May 20, 2013 at 02:12 #

      +1. Emmy is just so underrated.

    • AndreaCru May 20, 2013 at 02:13 #

      This is the best comment that can describe this perfection.

    • Rosanna May 20, 2013 at 02:49 #


    • Nat May 20, 2013 at 02:53 #


    • Lashae May 20, 2013 at 04:37 #

      So true. I don’t think I saw something I loved at Cannes.

    • Alina May 20, 2013 at 07:15 #


    • jo May 20, 2013 at 13:43 #

      +1 She looks stunning, and I love her make-up

    • dee May 20, 2013 at 19:50 #


      • Reez May 22, 2013 at 09:36 #

        a bit overdressed but the best dressed of the nite IMO
