Emmys 2014: Julia Roberts Wears an Elie Saab Mini We Predicted Would Hit the Red Carpet

08/25/2014 at 08:33 PM ET

PEOPLE StyleWatch editors are very impressed with ourselves right now, because one of our Emmys dress predictions happened to be right on the money. Style and Beauty Director Andrea Lavinthal hoped this blue beaded Elie Saab design would show up on the red carpet at the award show — and not only did it appear, but it appeared on the very A-list bod of Julia Roberts!

“It takes a confident star with a strong sartorial instinct to wear a short dress — instead of the standard floor-length gown,” Andrea wrote. And there’s no doubt that Roberts is a seasoned red carpet vet with the confidence to wear just about anything. (Remember this pink jumpsuit at the SAG Awards?)

Unfortunately don’t like how julia dresses. That dress look better on the runway model. She always look sloppy and her hair always looks like it needs to brushed.

That is NOT a mini, you idiots!

Gorgeous dress and she looks great in it!

Doesn’t look like a mini, at least not on her. While I love the color, and the shape of the dress is nice — it looks like it’s covered in boils. Or it’s skin that belongs to some crazy reptile or dinosaur.

Age is taking over Julia. Those are some leathery legs.

JP on

Not a fan.

Lara on

Well, yeah, terre, dresses always look better on runway models–nothing new about that.

I wouldn’t call that a mini, and she looks better as a redhead than a blonde. Personally, I think she looks better in something more tailored to her body.

She forgot to get it tailored. It doesn’t fit on the top, skirt is too long and it doesn’t look good with the peep toe heels. Either a strappy sandal or the shoe the model is wearing would look a lot better. Julia also needs to go back to red hair. That brassy blonde is NOT attractive. She needs a stylist.

I looked through all of the dresses they showed, and the only one I like is Felicity Huffman’s. It’s black, which isn’t necessarily my favorite color, but she looks the best in her dress.
