Along with the rest of the Grey’s Anatomy cast, we’ve gotten to know Katherine Heigl’s signature red carpet style: old Hollywood glamour. The statuesque blond favors structured, slinky gowns that play up her fabulous curves — and she always looks great! We went through the collections from this week’s fashion shows in New York and picked some hot-off-the-runway gowns for Katherine to wear to this Sunday’s Emmy Awards. Tell us: What do you think Katherine should wear to the Emmys?

Structured and Sexy: What about this purple fishtail gown from Ralph Lauren? Or this turquoise satin stunner from Oscar de la Renta? Why not this royal blue winner from Tuleh?

Strappy and Easy: Why not loosen up with this silver one-shouldered gown from Carlos Miele? Or be pretty in pink in this elegant Marchesa? Or try out a bold black and white in this Carolina Herrera?

Don’t know about the dress, but she should do something different with her hair besides the wavy bangs that she wears on every red carpet.

Toni on

She always looks amazing so almost any structured dress will look great on her. I can’t wait to see what she chooses!

Her hair changes a lot depending on the event..just happens that it has been similar at a couple of major events. I think it looks better when it is down and more free flowing.

Patty on

I Think Whatever she wears will be good on her

Mrs. Williams on

I deff think the prett in pink marchesa is the way to go this year it is absolutly stunning. And it would look even better if she would do something with her hair partially down or all the way down!

sarah on

All of the dresses are gorgeous, but she already wore one just like them! I think she should go for something different.

Anna on

I love the purple fishtail gown from Ralph Lauren or the pink Marchesa. Either way, she’ll look stunning.

Mike on

I only like the purple Ralph Lauren….the others are either way too simple and plain for a major award show like the Emmys or ugly like that Carolina Herrera…can you say Worst Dressed List?

Nic on

I really hope to see Katherine in something else, she always wear those floor length gown with mono color, I really wish she would wear something like Missoni lurex dress from winter/autumn 2007 collection, full of colors, motives and challenging.

Nic on

Or something from Givenchy summer 2007 collection, I love the Lophelia and the Sirena dress! they’re gorgeous, Katherine will looks great in them

Alyssa on

I would go with the beautiful, blue dress by Tuleh. She needs some color because oer pale features so some of the dresses would really wash her out more. But hey, if they are free, they are all great.

danielle on

I predict that she’ll mix things up a little and go more towards the way of the Marchesa number. Soft waves gathered loosely at the nape-spectacular earrings-what do I win if I’m right?

Jen on

The pink Marchesa would look good. It would be different. Does she ever wear her hair down and do a short dress for the red carpet?

JS on

That turquoise one would be gorgeous on her! Well, to be fair, any of them will be. I have a total girl crush on this woman.

Kaylee on

The Oscar de la Renta or Tuleh gowns would look best on her- it’d be nice to see her in a hot blue color. The purple one looks almost exactly like a dress she’s already worn before.

But what’s with the models? They all look scary, I know they want the gown to be the focus but an unattractive girl doesn’t make the dress stand out more in my opinion. de la Renta’s model looks like she might kill someone at any moment…

Kate on

I think the Marchesa gown is amazing and incredibly beautiful and she would look breathtaking in it! The purple gown would be my second choice. How great would it be to have so many fantastic gowns to chose from?

Fiona on

I dont care what Katherine wears, she needs to put tape over that big mouth while wearing a paper bag over her huge head..

E on

I think the Marchesa dress would look beautiful on her! And I also think she should wear her hair down with some loose curls. But, then again, she can pull off anything!!!

k on

that model needs a tan!! but she doesn’t look as thin as the one that modeled Ashlee Simpson’s dress, so that’s good.

Ceccia on

I agree with Kim I hope she changed her hair style this time no more buns or wavy look. I think she should try Caroline Herara this time. But really whatever she wear will be great because she has the curve and she always has that glowing looks.

Michelle on

I think she should wear the pink Marchesa gown! It is gorgeous!!

Rebecca on

Katherine looks great in bright, bold colors, so I would pick the purple Ralph Lauren or the royal blue Tuleh gowns for her. I think those two have the most flattering shapes as well.

No offense to Caroline Herrera, but I’m not at all digging that shorts/see-through shirt combo- especially not for a red carpet event.

Jen H-K on

There is a fabulous Kevan Hall (Fall 07) Dress, It’s a Mossy Green low Vneck with a banded beaded waist. Very Goddess like. She would kill in that dress.

Kathryn on

Either the gorgeous blue Tuleh with more modern hair and makeup or the pink Marchesa with romantic hair and soft makeup. The Ralph Lauren is beautiful and the color would be an au courant choice for the Emmy’s, but it’s too similar to her recent dresses.

Candace on

I think this dress looks amazing on her. She has the perfect form for it. I agree with the whole hair thing, she needs to change it up sometimes.

Cindy on

I’d love to see her in the turquoise dress. It would be gorgeous on her. I would love to see her change up her hair too.

Jon Bodack on

Interesting Dress that Katherine Heigl has on! And the model on the left has a very interesting, pretty dress like Katherine’s!

Boom-Shaka-Laka on

The beautiful royal blue Tuleh dress would be perfect on Katherine.

The pink Marchesa dress is gorgeous and because Katherine has a beautiful curvy body, her body would really highlight that dress.

The Ralph Lauren dress is also pretty. I think I like that dress because of the beautiful purple, and Katherine would look great in that color, but she’s worn dresses similar to it though. I think Katherine would look possibly good in this Ralph Lauren dress …. … the yellow would look great on her. Another one of my favorites from Ralph Lauren that would look gorgeous on Katherine would be …

The turquoise Oscar de la Renta dress is pretty, but it sorta reminds me of a prom dress. I like this Oscar de la Renta dress better … … I think the dress is simple, but classic, and I love the design around the waist.

I’m not crazy over the Miele dress, and the Carolina Herrera dresses aren’t appealing, especially the one suggested that she could wear, ewww.

Also, I love Zac Posen’s Spring 08 Collection. I think Katherine would look stunning in this dress …

I also think this beautiful Eli Saab {Fall 07} dress would look gorgeous on Katherine. She would truly rock this dress …

Rachel on

OMG!! I absolutely love the Marchesa gown! I think she should choose something that she feels comfortable in.

Megan on

I really like the one by Oscar de la Renta and Tuleh. They are pretty but not over the top. I really like those. Katherine Heigl will look amazing in whatever she decides to wear.

Lucy on

on actress that really bugs me – she acts like she’s so great. Don’t like her and who cares what she’ll wear.

Donna Batson on

I think the Marchesa would look great on Katherine. I would change the color to a bright hue, though. The light pink washes away her skin tone. Maybe a green, red, or black.

Suzana on

I think that she should most definately wear the purple one…it would pop against her skin. As for her hair….I agree that maybe it should be down and wavy…change things up alittle.

lily on

Marchesa has the most beautiful and elegant collection.


oscar de la renta dress is beautiful specially the color which i think would look great on her but also the marchesa dress is amazing is a bit like a grecian goddess.

Nicole on

She would look so cute in a bright, short dress and loose, straigtened hair, all on one side kind of the Paris Hilton look. It would be fun, flirty and most importantly different!!

jen on

she looks awesome in whatever she wears!!! it could be an ugly dress and she makes it chic

Elle on

The pink Marchesa is gorgeous! She would look really great in it!

Jon on

Definitely the pink Marchesa!!

fashionista on

she would look great in the pink marchesa or the royal blue tuleh. she needs a change! in the pink marchesa she would wear her hair half pulled back and straight or just with a little wave.she could wear pink diamond or white diamond pear drop earrings with soft pink blush and fake lashes with like pink lipstick. oh it would look fabulous!

mic on

the style of the dress is good but would have been worlds better if it wasnt black

Abby on

I think like a tropical ocean colored dress would look great on her.

Larson on

I think either the Pink marchesa dress or the blue tuleh.
but she needs to do something with her hair

Meagan on

Katherine is so beautiful. She has a figure and isn’t ashamed to flaunt it!

Krystle on

I’d like to see her in the Marchesta … it would suit her curves and structure perfectly …. keeping in mind that she always look amazing!

Jaenelle on

The pink Marchesa gown is absolutely gorgeous. Definitely the best one. I thought the Carlos Miele one looks more like something Ellen Pompeo would wear.

angie on

the dress reflects on the mermaid’s style!~ i love her dress
