Melonie Diaz In J Mendel – 2013 NCLA ALMA Awards

Melonie Diaz brought a pop of colour to the red carpet of Friday night’s 2013 NCLA ALMA Awards at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium in California.

Giving us an ‘orange is the new black’ moment, the actress wore a light tangerine J. Mendel halter gown with keyhole detail, a peplum empire waist and a thigh-high slit, which seemed rather unnecessary.

Even though she accessorized with a shot of shine via her metallic platform pumps and clutch, along with golden Marina B jewels, I still found this look to be a bit one-note. Perhaps a bolder lip would have brought some added flavour.

Peachy keen or not?
