2010 Emmy Awards – Maria Menounos In Ralph & Russo

Sexy Back Award
On Friday I showed you the sketch of Maria Menounos’ Ralph & Russo custom gown.

I prayed that she would bring the gown to life and she didn’t let me down.

I love a sexy low-cut back, but this gown also has a cut-out on the side.

The gown is adorned with more than 15,000 hand sewn Swarovski Elements, and was inspired by 1920s old Hollywood glamour.

Some of you wished this gown had been given to an A list star, but I think Maria more than does this gown justice.

It’s old Hollywood perfection which is complete with her wavy updo.

Breath-taking.

Maria Menounos To Wear Custom Ralph & Russo Couture Gown To The 62nd Primetime Emmy Awards

Ralph & Russo proudly unveiled the sketch of their latest couture creation which has been designed especially for Access Hollywood’s star Maria Menounos.

The gown has been created for her to wear at the 62nd Primetime Emmy Awards which will be held this Sunday in LA.

You will see Maria wearing the $35,000 custom made couture gown when she co-hosts NBC’s “Red Carpet to the Primetime Emmys” live pre-show.

The gown is adorned with more than 15,000 hand sewn Swarovski Elements, and was inspired by 1920s old Hollywood glamour.

Ralph & Russo have designed and created the ultimate red carpet showstopper.

I can’t wait to see Maria bring it to life.

Who Wore Alice + Olivia Better? America Ferrera or Maria Menounos

Here we have the same dress, in different colours worn in the same month.

America Ferrera was the first to give this Alice + Olivia Tessa asymmetrical dress a red carpet outing, when she attended the “The Illusionist” premiere during the 2010 Edinburgh Film Festival last month in Scotland.

She paired her black dress with snake skin Giuseppe Zanotti heels and a dazzling engagement ring.

Actress Maria Menounos wore the same dress to the OMEGA Constellation VIP Dinner in LA.

She paired her dress with the same Camilla Skovgaard collar sandals we’ve seen her wear once before.

Both look amazing. It’s almost impossible to choose, but I have to go with America as I prefer the dress belted despite preferring the dress in white.

Maria’s white version is available to purchase from Net-A-Porter.com.

17.06.10 Premiere

“Entourage” Season 7 Premiere

Her are the rest of the ladies who walked the red carpet at the “Entourage” Season 7 Premiere in LA last night.

Maria Menounos looked gorgeous wearing an Alice + Olivia scoop-neck dress which is covered with ombré sequins and beading.

I love her dress, but I adore her Camilla Skovgaard collar sandals.

Dania Ramirez wore a nude Dolce & Gabbana dress which Penelope Cruz first wore during the 2009 Cannes Film Festival.

The actress opted to jazz up her nude dress by wearing Versace metal platform sandals from the Spring 2010 collection which look out of place.

Perrey Reeves went for old Hollywood glamour wearing a red one-shoulder Michelle Jonas gown with a sexy thigh-high split.

Jimmy Choo heels and K.Brunini’s Body Armour cuffs on both wrists complete the look.

Debi Mazar always wears me out when she hits the red carpet because she always looks amazing.

She’s working the hell out of this sexy lace Isabel Toledo dress. Victoria Beckham would be proud of this pose.

Debi was my favourite at this event.

Emmannuelle Chriqui wore a plunging white mini Yigal Azrouël dress with cape-like sleeves and an open back.

Her look was paired with a black sequined bag and Christian Louboutin ‘Madame Butterfly’ booties.

Janet Montgomery’s peacock confection is interesting, but slightly OTT.

9th Annual Chrysalis Butterfly Ball

As promised here are the rest of the looks from the 9th Annual Chrysalis Butterfly Ball.

As always Sophia Bush is giving me an A-list look.

The “One Tree Hill” actress looked breath-taking wearing a Lorena Sarbu gown.

The nude flutter sleeve beaded gown delicately caresses her curves, as she teams her look with a Judith Leiber gold clutch and stunning gold earrings.

Jessica Stroup opted for a black Azzaro gown with an exquisite beaded neckline.

With her hair piled up high Mila Kunis wore a dove grey RM by Roland Mouret Bora dress with Brian Atwood Marlo pumps.

I love the ruffled detail on her skirt.

New mom Rebecca Gayheart radiates in a Catherine Malandrino print asymmetrical gown with side draping.

Amber Riley would have stood out in a sea of nude and dove grey wearing a red strapless Dalia MacPhee Fall 2009 gown with a cascading ruffle skirt.

Maria Menounos wore the Alice + Olivia sequined bodice strapless dress which is becoming very popular with celebrities.

I love her silver strappy sandals.

Sporting lighter locks Ashley Greene looked gorgeous wearing a Lela Rose Fall 2010 pearl-beaded shift dress paired with Loewe bow clutch and dove grey heels.

Alice + Olivia Malibu Dinner

Actress Estella Warren posed alongside designer Stacey Bendet wearing that Balmain-esqe Alice + Olivia military jacket, which many of you found questionable when I posted the comparison earlier this week.

The jacket makes Estella appear very boxy, when we all know she doesn’t have that type of body so I’m not really liking this jacket on her.

Wooo ho ho ho. Tan much?

Denise Richards has literally cooked her skin in her attempt to have a healthy glow.  She’s seriously gone overboard.

It’s more body builder than beach babe.

The TV personality opted for a strapless Alice + Olivia Rigby tube dress with silver strappy sandals.

I would suggest a factor 20 the next time she decides to tan.

I’m yet to see anyone really convince me that thigh-high boots can work other than Stella McCartney.

Lynn Collins opts for a bright pink Alice + Olivia V neck dress with a tuxedo jacket.

I love the straight hair, which appears to be fully under control compared to previous outings, and I also love her rosy glow.

Maria Menounos is the ONLY one at this event to get her look right.

The TV presenter wore a poppy red Alice + Olivia Trina tunic dress with a large statement necklace which complemented her dress along with her clutch and funky heels.
