Lily Rabe In Vionnet – 2013 Emmy Awards

Lily Rabe In Vionnet - 2013 Emmy Awards

Lily Rabe worked the dark lip and white pump trend on the red carpet at the 2013 Emmy Awards held at Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California on Sunday.

Yes, her lilac-and-white Vionnet gown has an edge with the asymmetrical skirt and leather panels, but sadly, I felt the dark lip was too severe and gothic-esque for her summery frock.

White Christian Louboutin pumps, white diamond earrings, an armful of signature rose cut diamond bangles and white diamond jade bangles, and a white diamond ring courtesy of Lorraine Schwartz accessorized her look.

Yay or nay on the lip colour?

    This vampy makeup works well for almost NO ONE. I think she wouldn’t look as bad in makeup with more nude tones. I wonder whose idea it was for her to go with this vampy makeup. The fact that it’s in doesn’t mean that it works for your peculiar situation. Someone shd have told her this wasn’t working. I didn’t think Sarah Hyland’s dark vampy makeup worked either.

    This is an awful mess, H2T.

    The style of the dress is a mess, the fit is off, the lip is too dark, the hair is the only thing I like.

      You said it Denise! This dress is one big mess and the lip is arbitrary. Her hair is the only good thing about this look.

    This dress is a mess.

    the dress isn’t flattering and the lip colour is too dark for a white and lilac dress. The only thing working is the hair.

    WTF IS THIS!? Did she find it in a charity shop???

  7. Linda September 23, 2013 at 11:45 #

    Another one I love! Love the style, love the hair and lip. Will watch her more.

      What, what what????

    This is one of those dresses with a dual personality, and succeeds at being neither. The complicated detailing on the bodice just looks droopy. The lip colour is so harsh with the pale lilac. I do like her hair!

    crappy dress, it looks like they didn’t finish it.

  10. Sam Mac September 23, 2013 at 08:18 #

    Oh dear, the lip is the least of her problems. That dress looks like she whipped it up last night out of a couple of bedsheets…

    I just don’t like the dress. It is just trying to hard for my taste/ She however makes it look as good as possible
    The lip stick agree is too dark it doesn’t relate to anything.

    I see this dress as having more of a 70’s vibe than a 40’s vibe, so her hair and makeup and completely off and dominate the white dress. Shame as I normally like Vionnet.

    I really do not like this lip colour, but on this occasion it works. Strangely.

  14. Alex V September 23, 2013 at 04:56 #

    Oh gosh! Why do they even try to wear that lipstick? this goes to you Selena also. It’s even darker tan her eyebrows! A light pink would’ve been so much better

    • Joy2 September 23, 2013 at 05:10 #

      +1. And an overly gimmicky dress as well

  15. Christine September 23, 2013 at 04:49 #

    Nay on the whole look. Horrid

    • kane September 23, 2013 at 06:47 #

      Just what I came here to say.

    • EmmaWoodhouse September 23, 2013 at 13:48 #

      Yeah, exactly. I guess the jewels are nice. The rest *makes face*

    • KatieKate September 24, 2013 at 01:50 #

      My thoughts exactly. The lipstick is horrid, but the dress is so bad that it makes the lipstick the least offensive part. Worst dressed of the night.
