Julia Roberts in Elie Saab Haute Couture Fall 2014

The always stunning Julia Roberts DAZZLED at the 66th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards red carpet in a cocktail dress from Elie Saab Haute Couture Fall 2014. I thought it was actually a nice change of pace seeing an actress in a short dress as opposed to a gown. Now, this isn't just any short dress, it's a $50,000+ costing Elie Saab Haute Couture one. Completely hand-sewn silk organza with hand-applied underlay of lace plus...thousands of hand-sewn sequins and oversized half-bubbled jewels:

I thought Julia looked great and it was smart to keep everything else--the hair, makeup, the peep-toe pumps--simple, clean and chic.Oh, and yes, Julia wore her best accessory: her SMILE! That's worth more than any Haute Couture creation!
