Emily Deschanel In Max Azria - 2014 People’s Choice Awards

Emily Deschanel made a dramatic stand on the red carpet of the 40th annual People’s Choice Awards in Los Angeles on Wednesday night.

The ‘Bones’ star wore a geometric, pleated Max Azria gown with subtle black, white and dusty pink color-blocking.

I love the art deco nature of this gown, and think it was a fun but ladylike choice for the star.

Her Edie Parker clutch and Swarovski ring and earrings complete the Gatsby-esque style and are perfectly suited to the gown.

Her blue-tinged smokey eye adds additional drama to the look, while her simple chignon lets the makeup and styling remain center stage.

I’m actually not crazy about the eye makeup for this look–it seems something more simplistic would be better suited for the ensemble, but I do love the fashion choices.
