Lea Michele In Elie Saab – 2013 People’s Choice Awards

Lea Michele In Elie Saab - 2013 People’s Choice Awards

Pretty in head-to-toe pink, Lea Michele was radiant on the red carpet last night for the 2013 People’s Choice Awards held at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in California where she picked up the ‘Favourite Comedic TV Actress’ award.

Would you believe this is Lea Michele’s first Elie Saab dress?

The ‘Glee’ actress delights wearing a pink short-sleeve cocktail dress with embellished lace detailing from the Spring 2012 collection.

To showcase her perfect pins, the dress was taken from knee-length to thigh-length, which is something we expect from the likes of Kristen Stewart.

After Lea wore so many samey gowns towards the end of last year, I’m glad to see her opting for something more fresh and youthful.

My one-to-watch in 2013 is yet to disappoint.

A braided updo, and matching pink Elie Saab sandals plus Anita Ko jewels completed her look.

Do you like her bold-hued red carpet choice, or is it too one note for you?

    Where did u find the photo of the model? can u tell me plz and thx:)

    seriously it looks cheap on Lea.I’m fine with cutting a few inches but this is just too much. It’s pink, glittery and way too short. It’s like Barbie with dark hair

    i prefer this on the model. the dress is gorgeous with lots of detail and lea’s hair is a bit too twisty for it. the simplicity of the model’s hair do and the longer length of her dress keeps this look from looking too party-party a la paris hilton.

    This Elie Saab dress is dazzling! Lea looks terrific! Best dressed for sure!

  5. Ella January 11, 2013 at 02:42 #

    I really, really liked this look from Lea Michelle and sometimes she rubs me the wrong way. Not on this occasion

    And I am in love with the color!

    She looks pretty in this pink and I’m delighted she wore the lookbook sandals too but I she should have kept the original length and the belt. The hair looks good front on but really bad from the back view.

  7. Tina January 10, 2013 at 23:21 #

    I know she’s young and maybe I’m just conservative, but I really dislike the fact that she cut off the bottom of the dress. Seriously, Elie Saab is elegance personified – doing anything so damaging to his creations to show off legs or some such reason is just not worth my admiration.

  8. adrian January 10, 2013 at 22:22 #

    the hair and the length don’t work for me.

  9. justme January 10, 2013 at 21:55 #

    She’s 5’2 so I understand the length modification. She should have kept the belt though.

  10. Iris January 10, 2013 at 20:22 #

    Lea looks lovely (apart from the strained pose) and the colour on her is beautiful. My only gripe is that I wish the younger startlets would think outside of shortening a look and get more creative with accessories.

  11. Emma January 10, 2013 at 18:33 #

    This is a young and fun event and I think she’s dressed perfectly appropriate for it. She’s worn a longer, more lengthy dress before (her Emilio Pucci a few months ago) and looked lovely in it, however I think such a look would be too much for a fun event like the PCAs. I’m glad she didn’t add the pink belt to her shortened dress because it would have made it look a bit kitschy, and on the red carpet the pink clutch in the lookbook would have been overkill. I love this look and her hair and makeup were flawless as always!

  12. Pedro January 10, 2013 at 17:38 #

    She looks amazing


  13. Moxie January 10, 2013 at 16:34 #

    Fun and flirty. I think the shorter length works for her, but I think she could have rocked the longer length.

  14. Regina January 10, 2013 at 15:27 #

    If she had kept the length and belt it would have looked aged and matronly. I think the length makes it younger, more fun and event-appropriate. It’s not too short like she has done in the past. That pink is basically made for her skin tone, accessories, hair and make-up are perfect.

  15. EmmaWoodhouse January 10, 2013 at 15:07 #

    If she had kept the length and the belt then this would be BDOTW-worthy and I would love it from head to toe. It’s definitely a good look, but for the too-short hemline. I really like her effortless styling, especially the hair.

  16. Fumi January 10, 2013 at 15:05 #

    I agree with everyone that said the lookbook version is better… I don’t have a problem that her stylist shortened the dress, but I think it is now too short. An inch or two longer and the belt would have worked better.

  17. Zissou January 10, 2013 at 14:38 #

    The look in itself is pretty decent. The problem appears when you see it next to the the lookbook version and it completely pales in comparison.

  18. dee January 10, 2013 at 13:18 #

    I like the dress and shoes but hate the hair.

  19. katie January 10, 2013 at 12:46 #

    I love it

  20. robbie January 10, 2013 at 12:37 #

    wow this dress went from beautiful to cheap.

    • Francesca January 10, 2013 at 13:52 #

      ITA. She made the impossible: make an Elie Saab dress look cheap.

    • Nat39 January 10, 2013 at 19:10 #

      Exactly. From elegant and feminine to cheap and cheesy.

    • Molly January 11, 2013 at 00:43 #

      I dont think it looks cheap in a bad way, but when I saw her, I imediately thought it was by Jenny Packham, not Elie Saab. She should have cut it just above her knee to avoid that effect; also when the camera showed her when she won her award, you could very clearly see her nude panties.

    • TJ January 11, 2013 at 04:32 #

      She looks spectacular! This looks young, fresh, yet very elegant!

  21. Molly January 10, 2013 at 12:08 #

    I like this on her, including the length. A little more bold and fun than usual, and it suits her and the event nicely. I am not so on board with the hair, but give her credit for doing something different.

    • Lisa January 10, 2013 at 14:34 #

      Love, I would only change the hair.

  22. Emily January 10, 2013 at 11:42 #

    she looks superb, for once there is nothing at all about her looks that i would like to change!

    • manja January 10, 2013 at 12:50 #

      +1 great look H2T

  23. Beta January 10, 2013 at 11:04 #

    In general terms, I prefer the more ladylike lookbook version, but for these awards, and being Lea, the short version looks great

  24. T from Sydney January 10, 2013 at 10:55 #

    She looks good but the modified dress does NOT look like an Eli Saab dress.

  25. Mandy January 10, 2013 at 10:25 #

    I love this so much, which is saying something because im normally not a fan of lea’s style or the colour pink but she looks fabulous.

  26. CreoleLady January 10, 2013 at 10:17 #

    One of my best dressed at this event. Some of the gowns were overkill. Pretty smile, beautiful braids, vibrant color (spectacular on her), sexy heels. Love.

  27. Laura January 10, 2013 at 10:10 #

    She looks great and really pretty! Love the dress, she wears it perfectly :). Just a doubt about the hair, a bit too “short” to my point of view

  28. bessie January 10, 2013 at 10:06 #

    She is trying too hard.I like the dress with the belt and like the length on the model.

    • Kateryna January 12, 2013 at 16:49 #

      I totally agree. She spoiled the dress

  29. Jess2 January 10, 2013 at 09:57 #

    She looks absolutely amazing! I love this colour on her and I love that this is a fresh colour and style. I love this!

  30. Leela January 10, 2013 at 09:43 #

    I REALLY loved it until I saw the runway pic. I love the length and belt on the model. But Lea does look great.

  31. Rashmi January 10, 2013 at 09:35 #

    I love the dress, love the color, love the shoes and LOVE them together.
    And the shorter length is very event appropriate, so I don’t mind her cutting it down 🙂

  32. Yeliz January 10, 2013 at 09:30 #

    This is a pretty good look, but I’m missing the belt.

    • sara January 10, 2013 at 20:39 #

      Agreed. Im not so much bothered by the length as I am with the missing belt.

      • florencia January 11, 2013 at 00:59 #

        couldn’t agree more

  33. noo January 10, 2013 at 09:24 #

    that is amazing!

  34. The Very Simon G January 10, 2013 at 09:23 #

    She looks GREAT! I always love what she wears, and this pink suits dark skin/hair SOOO well!


    • Cindy January 10, 2013 at 10:16 #


  35. Alina January 10, 2013 at 09:23 #

    I really like this! It’s young, fun, vibrant and perfect!

    • Christine January 10, 2013 at 15:08 #

      I like this lea! She looks cute and playful. Like the dress and the shoes.

    • Francois Bresmal January 10, 2013 at 23:51 #

      TOTALLY! I think it’s my favorite look from her to date
