Julie Bowen In Alberta Ferretti Couture – 2017 Emmy Awards

Julie Bowen was intent on proving that black could be anything but boring at the 2017 Emmy Awards on Sunday night (September 17).

Her dress wasn’t boring, but I must say it stood out for the wrong reasons. I want to support the Alberta Ferretti Spring 2017 Couture gown, but I cannot get behind the detailing.

I enjoy the swirling volume of the ruffles, but it’s the placement that kills it for me. Additionally, the light fabric against the heavy velvet enhances the disjointed finish.

Had the ruffles been in the same fabric or placed across the body, it might have been more successful. Or, it would have worked better if the belt remained. I could even see a bustle being a better option. Thoughts?

    Beautiful but forgettable.

    I do miss a belt.
    Other than that – I quite like this look.

    I don’t mind the ruffle as is but I would have kept the belt.

    I really like this and don’t have a big problem with the ruffle placement but most definitely would have been more on board had the belt remained.

    I am missing the belt (a lot).

      +1, but this is not a bad look for Julie.

        I agree about the belt, but I also think that it is the best she has looked in a long time.

    I kinda like this flamenco style dress. It’s very different from Julie’s normal red carpet dressing.
