Lucy Liu In Zac Posen – 2014 Emmy Awards

Lucy Liu In Zac Posen - 2014 Emmy Awards

Lucy Liu swept onto the red carpet at the 2014 Emmy Awards, held at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California on Monday (August 25).

The ‘Elementary’ actress stunned in a beautifully draped Zac Posen ecru, sheer-effect gown with sultry corset-inspired detailing and gossamer layers that glided into a train behind her.

At first glance, the colour of the gown registered as a bit lacklustre.

But it’s hard to deny the subtle yet strong dynamic of this perfectly fitted dress, especially when its artfully styled with a Jimmy Choo ‘Cloud’ clutch and Lorraine Schwartz jewels.

Who Wore Dolce & Gabbana Better…Laetitia Casta or Lucy Liu?

Who Wore Dolce & Gabbana Better Laetitia Casta or Lucy Liu

Back in February, Laetitia Casta attended a photocall during the 64th Festival di Sanremo 2014 wearing a Dolce & Gabbana dress featuring an illustration of Acropoli di Agrigento in Sicily.

Opting for a more conservative look than we are used to, she styled the look with a black blazer and bow-front pumps.

Lucy Liu wore the same dress a few months later to the Tony Awards nomination, adding a belt and keeping the styling to a minimum which won me over, so she wins for me.

Lucy Liu In Stella McCartney – TimesTalks

Lucy Liu In Stella McCartney - TimesTalks

Lucy Liu attended the ‘TimesTalks’ held at the Times Center on Thursday (July 24) in New York City.

The actress kept it casual, wearing a Stella McCartney Pre-Fall 2014 ‘James’ dress.

Relaxed in style, this black crepe dress is elevated by a graphic embroidered line-drawn-faces motif which is the figurative work of English artist Gary Hume.

I would’ve loved to have seen Lucy wear a pair of silver brogues with this look; instead she opted for a pair of Nicholas Kirkwood cut-out sandals.

Lucy Liu In Andrew Gn – 2014 Ignite Gala

Lucy Liu In Andrew Gn - 2014 Ignite Gala

Lucy Liu attended the 2014 Ignite Gala benefiting BAM Education at BAM Howard Gilman Opera House on Monday (June 30) in New York City.

This Andrew Gn Pre-Fall 2014 dress with black trims and bejewelled patch pockets might have been event appropriate, but it’s a slow news day so I would’ve loved for Lucy to have worn something more exciting – or at the very least with a bit more colour

Nicholas Kirkwood lace open-toe shoes and a black Jimmy Choo clutch completed this rare meh look from Lucy.

Lucy Liu In Antonio Berardi – ‘Meena’ New York Premiere

Lucy Liu In Antonio Berardi - 'Meena' New York Premiere

Lucy Liu attended the premiere of the movie ‘Meena’, a film she co-directed, last night (June 26) in New York City.

The actress wore a black and white Antonio Berardi dress from the designer’s Spring 2011 collection with strapped, studded Saint Laurent sandals and a bright Bottega Veneta clutch.

The simple silhouette looks chic, and the added spice from the shoes and color of the purse add just enough interest to hold the viewers attention.

Simple makeup and hair styling–plus a watch and small bangle in the jewelry department–completed the understated-but-apropos look.
