Michelle Dockery In Prada – 2013 Emmy Awards

Michelle Dockery In Prada - 2013 Emmy Awards

Michelle Dockery captivated on the red carpet for tonight’s 2013 Primetime Emmy Awards at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California.

The ‘Downton Abbey’ actress captured my attention in a ravishing, two-tone Prada gown in ruby-red duchesse satin and burgundy silk radzmire.

The halter-style, low-back bustier top was fashionably fastened at the back of the neck with a striking bow-like detail, which was only complemented by the flowing skirt that swept into a train from its slightly raised hemline at the front.

She accessorized the ensemble quite seamlessly with black satin, double-strap heels accented with red crystals and a complementary red jewelled clutch, both also by Prada, with Fred Leighton jewels finishing off the dynamic, colour-block look.

    My best dressed of the night.

      BY FAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Lane September 24, 2013 at 07:02 #

      Mine too; she looked good.

  2. Moxie September 23, 2013 at 01:33 #

    The style of the dress is beautiful, but I don’t like those two colors together.

  3. Christine September 23, 2013 at 01:33 #

    I like the front more than the back.

    Overall, nice look.

    I dont care for these colors paired together and something about those double zippers in the back feels very project runway to me. Sadly, I don’t care for this at all.

    • Linda September 23, 2013 at 01:54 #

      I agree about the Project Runway comment. For such an established and expensive brand, it’s puzzling to see some of their gowns on the red carpet looking cheaply or poorly made. The double zippers in the back are not sewn on with an expert hand.

      • Linda September 23, 2013 at 01:55 #

        That said, I do love the fabric and colours.

      • farlis September 23, 2013 at 06:54 #

        That’s because it’s two separates – a top and a skirt not one dress so the double zipper couldn’t be avoided i suppose

    Wow, from Lupita Nyong’o to Nicole Kidman and now Michelle Dockery, Mrs. Prada is on a roll lately!

    • Susan N. September 23, 2013 at 01:37 #

      Yes! Prada gowns usually don’t work, but Michelle looks fantastic.

  6. Anne September 23, 2013 at 01:37 #

    No one can wear a big red bow at the back of the neck and not have me compare them to on of my favorite Oscar looks of all time, Nicole Kidman in Balenciaga. That being said, Michelle fairs quite well in this. It’s a definite standout of the night for me

    • julyol1972 September 23, 2013 at 04:31 #

      Pretty! But Nicole did it bigger, better and more memorably.

  7. Sophy September 23, 2013 at 01:40 #

    Beautiful n unexpected

  8. Nat39 September 23, 2013 at 01:41 #

    YES, Love it! Finally something to get excited about. Loving the unexpected colour block drama, the flowing voluminous skirt and the statement oversized bow, her styling is impeccable. This is certainly a standout impactful look.

    • Denise September 23, 2013 at 08:00 #

      +1. One of the best of the night.

      +4. She looks divine. I love this look head-to-toe and she’s defintely one of the best of the event. She’s on my top 3. An updo would’ve perfected this look even more but that’s something that can be overlooked.

    • Nat September 23, 2013 at 17:53 #


  9. H September 23, 2013 at 01:42 #

    Wow, my best of the night!!! Gorgeous

  10. Alexandra September 23, 2013 at 01:45 #

    I absolutely adore it, dramatic and yet so efortless! i can’t get my eyes off this look. she pulls it off with such grace and poise. perfect!

  11. Kathy September 23, 2013 at 01:47 #

    The dress has a stunning design, and I love the styling, but the two colors don’t pair well together.

  12. Mery September 23, 2013 at 01:53 #

    Amazing dress, but those colours do not match.

  13. Giras September 23, 2013 at 01:55 #

    Beautiful! My favorite so far!

  14. KatieKate September 23, 2013 at 01:59 #

    I love everything about this, except I think I would’ve preferred a different color to complement the red. That said, I still think this will be one of the most memorable and talked about of the night.

  15. EmmaWoodhouse September 23, 2013 at 02:03 #

    This made me smile–it’s so different, and elegant…the bow is whimsical and yet classic, the colors unexpected and vibrant, and her presence inspiring. Styling is perfection…one of the best of the night.

  16. lakeisha September 23, 2013 at 02:16 #

    best dressed of the night

  17. Eve_V September 23, 2013 at 02:21 #

    In my opinion, it’s the best she’s ever looked. Gorgeous, stunning, absolutely perfect. From the dress, to her hair, makeup and accessories – not a single thing I would change. She is definitely my best dressed of the night.

  18. Janey September 23, 2013 at 02:26 #

    She looks fantastic in the dress, but she definitely should have done something different with her hair. I think something pulled back and a bit messy would have the edginess to complement such an interesting dress.

  19. Lisa September 23, 2013 at 02:29 #

    I hate it and she needs a bra

  20. Tweed September 23, 2013 at 02:41 #

    Definitely striking! The silhouette usually isn’t the most flattering, but it definitely works for her. The best thing that makes this work is how well it’s styled. It looks simple and clean but has the impact usually attributed to more flamboyant couture pieces.

  21. Prudence September 23, 2013 at 02:44 #

    the front looks amazing but the back is terrible, it looks like they rushed the finish it and the bow is far too big. Execution is thoroughly lacking and ruined what could have been an amazing look.

  22. Gail September 23, 2013 at 02:51 #

    She looks perfect!

  23. lakeisha September 23, 2013 at 03:03 #

    best look of the night

  24. Rashmi September 23, 2013 at 03:30 #

    Wow, easily one of the best dressed! The dress looks perfect on her! The two colors might be difficult, but she carries of elegantly!

  25. easyBlake September 23, 2013 at 03:33 #

    Lovely. Is she wearing a skirt on top of a separate dress?

  26. Trish Cohen September 23, 2013 at 03:34 #

    Michelle is always classy. Beautiful dress.

  27. Molly September 23, 2013 at 05:03 #

    I’m just so glad Michelle is around. Not my favorite of e night but she always has fun and takes risks!

  28. Aline September 23, 2013 at 05:41 #

    Ugh, why Prada, Michelle, why?

    The two zippers makes it look like she’s wearing a mullet skirt over another dress. The bow is pretty terrible, the two colors don’t look good together and the fabric is not to my taste. I’m disappointed.

  29. Alina September 23, 2013 at 06:00 #

    I can’t get like this look because of the lack of support.

  30. Loretta September 23, 2013 at 06:11 #

    i like this dress. very unique and funny looking. 😛

  31. kane September 23, 2013 at 07:19 #

    She’s on quite some roll. Over the past few days I must have liked her looks more than all the ones taken together since she hit the red carpet.

    • Iva September 23, 2013 at 08:31 #

      My thoughts exactly.

  32. Noemi September 23, 2013 at 08:41 #

    This gown is gorgeous, the colors are so interesting and the fastening on the back is a great detail. I wish she did something more interesting with the hair…

  33. Alex September 23, 2013 at 08:42 #

    Michelle was the biggest surprise for me on this red carpet and in the best way.

    She’s one of my favourites of the night. Everything works here and she looks perfectly chic.

  34. amy September 23, 2013 at 09:10 #

    I like it. The colors are perfect, season appropriate and the shape is flattering: WIN

  35. Fanny September 23, 2013 at 09:28 #


  36. Yeliz September 23, 2013 at 09:46 #

    These two colours or not an usual combination, but it works amazingly. My nitpick are those two zippers in the back, it doesn’t really look like a fine work. I also don’t really like that bow detail, but I can overlook that. The front view is much better than the back, but overall she looks stunning. Although I am not completely in love with the gown, I still think that she was one of the best of the night.

  37. Stel September 23, 2013 at 10:09 #

    Oh dear God!!! The best dressedof the night! So classy and modern at the same time! <3 her!

  38. Dorothy September 23, 2013 at 10:33 #

    While I may have some issues with the size of that bow, this still remains as one of the most interesting and beautiful looks from last night.

  39. Joy September 23, 2013 at 11:07 #

    +1 for Prada! Showing us all that yes, they can make a gorgeous gown. This look was one of the best of the night. I think she brought a lot to the look with the styling that is perfection. Stunning! I can’t get over the red with cranberry combo & how much I LOVE it.

  40. shap_half September 23, 2013 at 11:39 #

    She’s been on a roll. I didn’t really love her style until recently, but this is gorgeous.

  41. Jess2 September 23, 2013 at 12:46 #

    Michelle has gotten it oh so wrong before but this is one of her better looks in my opinion. Very elegant and lovely.

  42. Ana September 23, 2013 at 14:13 #

    I’m not a big fan of Prada, but this look is AMAZING!! My favorite of the night!

  43. La-Shaun September 23, 2013 at 15:33 #

    Easily the best dressed of the night.

  44. msd September 23, 2013 at 16:13 #

    I love the unusual colour combination, the shoes and the overall shape. I’m not sure it’s working as well from the back, though.

  45. Betelgeuze September 25, 2013 at 16:01 #

    Michelle’s style has been lately bothering me because she seemed to always wear something with high neckline and sleeves, but this. Is. Flawless.
    Adore. She’s my best dressed, along with Kaley Cuoco.

  46. x-De-x September 25, 2013 at 18:49 #

    Terrible dress, the halterneck looks badly made and too tight around the bust, the colours of this dress do not go, disgusting shoes and don’t get me started on the back and the zips. This ensemble actually looks cheap.
    Oh Michelle, bad again
