We’re already pretty jealous of Fringe star Anna Torv, namely because she works alongside the dreamy Joshua Jackson on her hit FOX show.

But thanks to stellar stylists and a love of fashion, the Aussie starlet also slips effortlessly between her character’s tough style, her easy everyday wear and girly red-carpet gowns.

“On the show, as Olivia, I wear a uniform — primarily a suit, jacket and boots,” she tells PEOPLE. “Anytime I can slip into my own clothes, it’s such a treat, as I prefer going casual whenever possible.”

But bigger deals, like Sunday’s Emmy Awards, are the days she looks forward to most. “An opportunity to go glam, with a high-fashion dress, hair and makeup?” she asks. “Come on, who wouldn’t love that?!”

For the Emmys, the actress donned a Vera Wang gown and bright blue heels. And she was sure to stay on a tight prep schedule, too. “I ate [that] morning and then got my nails done,” she shares. “And about noon we started hair and makeup, and then put the dress on and made sure everything was right. We were in the car at 2:30 p.m.”

Considering the effort that goes into getting a girl glam for an awards show — have you seen the Rachel Zoe Project? — Torv was pretty impressed with her timing. “Two-and-a-half hours?” she asks. “I don’t think that’s too much.”

Catch the season premiere of Fringe Friday night at 9 p.m. ET on FOX.

SPOILER BELOW don’t read if you haven’t seen the Friday ep yet. Did you catch the reference to Walter’s firend Dr. Jacoby in Washington State? The one who gave him the red/blue glasses. Shame on you if you didn’t. BTW AICN says the ratings on Friday were great (well, it was the highest rated show of the night), so there is hope.
