Hey, doll. Come on in. We’re handing out this week’s Sally Award for the best party look of the week. Our winner? Masters of Sex star Lizzy Caplan who proved on Monday night that she’s also a mistress of fabulous style. While there were plenty of very sally ladies walking the red carpet on television’s biggest fashion night of the year, it was Lizzy in a Donna Karan Atelier gown who took the prize.
Black and white, modern and classic, provocative and ladylike, soft and structured, and sleek and flowing, this beautiful gown was full of perfectly harmonious contradictions. Styled by the enormously talented Ilaria Urbinati who also dresses Shailene Woodley, Bradley Cooper, Ryan Reynolds and Nina Dobrev. Lizzy’s winning look included Neil Lane jewels, Brian Atwood shoes, and a Judith Lieber clutch. Her sleek, low bun and simple, classic make up allowed the statement dress to shine.
