2009 Primetime Emmy Awards: Padma Lakshmi

I always appreciate a dose of the exotic on the red carpet and Padma Lakshmi delivers. Her draped purple gown with red flower detail is gorgeous — the knotted, barely there sleeves are awesome. Her ruby earrings — no doubt from her jewelry collection — are fab-u-lous. Thoughts?

Love the earrings, but the flower detail ruins the dress.

I lovethe idea. Like everyone else said the flowers are bad. Get rid of them. And the hair is a bit much too for it.

I like the dress without the flower growth.

I don't like the red flowers, they look like some sort of weird growth.

That looks like the perfect dress for someone who is a few months pregnant.

where to begin. the only nice thing that i can say about this is the color is really pretty. otherwise, i'm not a fan. i don't think that it fits her well and i think that there's too much going on .

cant stand her, or the dress, or the hair

She should ditch the flowers, which I think might be the reason the midsection of the dress is so ill-fitting. I love the shoulders and color, though. Her hair also looks great.

No to the red flowers or whatever they are.....no to the shoulders. Just....no.

Such a beautiful woman. It's too bad the dress looks like a project runway reject. Unflattering and ugly.

I was completely in love with this dress and then I saw the red flowers. It's a great dress without them.

Wth is that big, flower bump hanging off the side? I don't like the dress at all. Her hair and makeup are gorgeous!
