WHERE & WHEN: 2013 Billboard Music Awards on May 19, 2013.
WEARING: Zuhair Murad
MY VERDICT: I don’t know how Emmy avoided looking like a sweaty mess in her gown under the sweltering Las Vegas sun, but the “Beautiful Creatures” actress looked effortlessly stunning in her beautiful Zuhair Murad gown for the Billboard Music Awards.
Emmy arrived on the blue carpet at the MGM Grand wearing the Fall 2013 long sleeve black velvet gown with a keyhole neckline and sheer polka-dot paneling throughout the sleeves, back, and sides of the skirt. I fell in love with this dress the first time I saw it, but if it were possible–Emmy just made me adore it even more. I love everything about it; from the hourglass shape it takes on to the tough balance of heavy fabric and light peek-a-boo panels.
Emmy completed her look with smouldering smoky eyes, ornate statement jewelry and a elegant up-do.
This is one of those dresses that ends up creating both a dramatic jaw-dropping entrance and an equally captivating exit.
