Everyone dreams of attending a major award show like the Emmys, but what happens when you not only get to go, but you actually present on-stage? We asked Fringe star Anna Torv about her debut Emmy experience and how she picked her dazzling Marc Bouwer dress. She tells PEOPLE, “On Fringe, I spend so much time in black and grey suits and don’t have the opportunity to dress up or wear anything with bright color. So when I first saw the Marc Bouwer dress, I was definitely intrigued. It was surprisingly more comfortable than I thought it would be.” And comfortable is a good thing when you have a few nerves going in to the night. “As I’ve never presented on the Emmys before, let alone attended an event of such magnitude, I was in awe about being part of the night. It really felt like I crawled inside my television.” And just like all of us watching the red carpet, Anna got to see the stars up-close, which had a surprising side effect. “I relaxed my nerves about walking the red carpet when I saw a whole sea of talented actors and understood it wasn’t about me. For me, watching the parade was all the fun of the evening.” We definitely had a great time watching her glide down the red carpet like a pro.

She was hands-down the most beautiful woman in the room. Perfect.

When she came out to present, my jaw hit the floor. I had NO IDEA she had a body like that. I nearly fell over. On Fringe she’s so plain and frumpy. That was the best dress, hands down.

Love the dress, but I think that she needs something to push the girls up.

The only red carpet picture I’ll post all year. « Corks and Caftans on
