Which Alexander McQueen Dress Do You Like Better on Anna Paquin?

Why limit yourself to one fabulous Alexander McQueen dress when you can wear two? That seemed to be Anna Paquin‘s fashion philosophy at last night’s Emmy Awards, where the stylish star treated us to two different black dresses from the late designer, who died on February 11. To walk the red carpet, the newlywed and True Blood vixen stepped out in a black satin Alexander McQueen gown, embellished with sparkling gold epaulette-style shoulders that she accented with a stack of vintage House of Lavande bracelets. Only hours later, Paquin reappeared at HBO’s Post-Emmy party in a black wool dress from the designer’s Pre-Fall 2010 collection, which she paired with a Red Union Jack Skull clutch–also from McQueen. ¬†We love a mid-evening wardrobe change, but with two elegant Alexander McQueen dresses, it’s tough to decide which look we liked better on Anna. Tell us: Which of Anna Paquin’s Emmy-night looks do you prefer? Vote! –Jessie Goldberg

Only she could have pulled these looks off. Congrats to her and her amazingly fine husband.

I loved her Emmy dress, I think it was daring! And the color gold looks great on her. At least she was wearing something fun & original! (plus having a very dashing new husband on her arm!)

The afterparty dress looks much better, but that sour puss expression ruins both looks!

Jon on

They both look nice on her, but I like The Alexander McQueen Dress she wore To The After Party for The Emmys!

Donna on

She apparently didn’t pull these looks off so well.

That picture of her in the gold top is unflattering because its at an odd angle. I saw other pictures of her in that dress and it looked very nice.

she really needs to smile but I love the Emmy dress.

The Emmy dress looks like armor from Xena. I do not like it at all. It’s not flattering unless you are wielding a sword. The second dress is much better, despite the sharp shoulders. And I agree, it wouldn’t kill her to smile a little. :)

True Blood should have won!! She looks great in both but the after party dress is classic and more flattering I think. The red carpet dress is very bold and exotic though, I like it too.
