We’ve known Julianne Hough as the red carpet darling who sure knows how to take sartorial risks. At the 2013 Art of Elysium ‘Heaven’ Gala however, she surprised us with a fresh (quite literally) new offering. She walked the red carpet in a dashing Jenny Packham dress, which was truly a sight to behold at the 2nd Street Tunnel-held soiree last January 12.
Far from her daring red carpet outfits, the dancer-slash-actress picked a more reserved and regal gown that was peppered with colorful floral appliqués. The long-sleeved number definitely brought some heavenly feeling thanks to how elegant Hough pulled it off. She chose a pair of Stuart Weitzman shoes and Sethi Couture stud earrings, which were just perfect with the dress.
What made us love this look is her braided hair, which we’ve seen on red carpet regulars like Jennifer Lawrence and Keira Knightley. Although the milkmaid braids don’t always work in favor of every celebrity, it gave Hough a sense of innocence that we don’t always see from the audacious red carpet stunner. While she often falls short in the sartorial department, Hough’s sartorial unpredictability is something we always look forward to.
