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

She’s gotten too thin. She was thin to start with and now her face looks sunken. That detracts from both dresses.

She looks very dumpy in both those looks. Her Stylst could have done a better job at dressing her.

Nice dress…sour faces

It was interesting to hear about Lady Gaga’s Healthy Diet of Tofu, Turkey and Hummus! Also, I wish Ryan Seacrest the best with his new show that will be about her! Also, sorry to hear that Slash has filed for Divorce, but I’m glad it was amicable!

I voted on the After Party dress but on second thought … I think the Emmy dress fits the bill better. This is after all Hollywood, and an awards show to boot, so something that stands out and gets people to talk has to be the winner. It’s all about publicity anyway!

I loved her Emmys dress. I think it was daring but Anna stood out. She can pull off that look because she is beautiful. Her dress is not like all the other boring dresses that we see on red carpets.

Anna would make such a SMOKING HOT couple with Alexander Skarsgard! Stephen and Anna look like father and daughter. Just NOT.SEXY.AT.ALL!


That Spanish matador/bullfighter dress was horrific! The stuff of nightmares! All she needed to do was spill some poor bull’s blood all over herself and she’d be set to go.
