Slipping Into Something A Little More Comfortable

Actress Blake Lively was red hot at the 61st Primetime Emmy Awards held at the Nokia Theatre on September 20, 2009 in Los Angeles, California, but we actually think the black sequined Balmain dress she wore for HBO’s post Emmy Awards reception at the Pacific Design Center was more striking on the leggy Gossip Girls star. The red Versace dress screamed sex and with that usually comes the risk of a wardrobe malfunction, so we understand the practicality in switching dresses for an after party.
Rose Byrne was luminous in her creme chiffon Valentino dress at the Emmy Awards but who can really relax when minding a delicate floor-length confection? She slipped into a shorter grey and violet dress dripping with sequins for the after party. Byrne, Lively and Leighton Meester were in the minority, having made a wardrobe change between the Emmy Awards presentation and The HBO post Emmy reception, but as Lady Gaga knows, switching it up a little draws lots of attention.
