Anna Paquin, everyone’s favorite vampire-loving Southern belle, looked phenomenal at the 2010 Emmy Awards in a dramatic Alexander McQueen number.

At awards shows, there are always beautiful women floating across the red carpet in beautiful dresses, but I was immediately drawn to this dress because it’s not like anything I’ve ever seen on the red carpet before (perhaps because it is McQueen). There’s always a ton of Marchesa, Versace, Oscar de la Renta, etc. and while these dresses are always breathtakingly beautiful, I prefer this look.
Anna Paquin looks equal parts glamorous and fierce. I hate to use that word because I think it’s a bit cliche, but that is the perfect description for this dress. The bust reminds me of a sexy version of Viking armor, with a bit of Ancient Egyptian Princess mixed in. It’s flawless.
Ever since Rebecca Minkoff busted onto the scene a couple of years ago with her collection of perfect, buttery classic leather bags (with a twist of course), she’s gained quite a cult following. These days, you can barely open a magazine without seeing one of her bags featured as an Editor’s pick. It goes without saying that I’m very excited for the launch of Rebecca Minkoff’s line of footwear, which promises to be classic yet sassy, sweet… with the perfect amount of edge.
I could totally see myself living in both these tan leather ankle boots with a modest heel, and these completely unique perforated tan flats (love the zippers). The black wedges are the perfect amount of drama for a night out. They would look amazing with skinny jeans, a black tee, and an arm full of Rebecca Minkoff bracelets. The shoe collection will be priced from $160-395. If Rebecca Minkoff’s shoes are anything like her bags, apparel, bracelets, etc, they’ll be on the feet of every fashion-forward celebrity, and made to last.
