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.
