Hayden Panettiere covers her bump in Lorena Sarbu at the Emmys: pretty?

66th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards - Arrivals
When Hayden Panettiere was speaking to Giuliana Rancic during the E! pre-show she dropped a female pronoun in reference to her baby. Giuliana picked up on it, got all excited, and Hayden confirmed that she was having a girl. Later the other commentators, Kristin and Kelly, started gloating about how they had the exclusive that Hayden was having a girl and that Amanda Peet was pregnant. (Bedhead covered Peet here.) I don’t really get how it’s a big deal to find out a celebrity baby’s sex ahead of time, though. I only care when it’s close friends or family, although I like to actually see the celebrity babies once they arrive. Is that strange?

Anyway presenter Hayden was in this formfitting, cleavage-baring silver sequin Lorena Sarbu gown that was sexy without revealing too much. I thought this gown was so striking on her. The only thing missing was her hot Ukranian fiance, Wladimir Klitschko. Hayden told Giuliana that they’re trying to come up with a name for their baby that is both American and Ukranian, and that it’s difficult.

Also I have no problem when pregnant ladies belly cup. It kind of seems inevitable for them to do this, and I think I did it too.

Presenter Viola Davis was in this hot cobalt blue Escada gown featuring a sequin bust. The top is a little too tight and shelf-like for my taste, but Viola looks great otherwise. I love the cap sleeves on this.

Viola’s former co-star, Octavia Spencer, was in her favorite designer, Tadashi Shoji. She hasn’t worn another designer in years as far as I can remember. She said in a past red carpet interview that she knows all the people at the design house very well because she sees them ahead of each ceremony. This is a great color and this bright red was very popular last night. I like the intricate draping on this gown.

Minnie Driver wore a coral red Marchesa featuring a sequin v-neck. This isn’t awful but there’s nothing special about this dress. Minnie was nominated for Lead Actress in a Miniseries or Movie, for Return to Zero. That category of course went to Jessica Lange.

I just wanted to mention that I’ve tried to watch About a Boy, Minnie’s NBC comedy, but found it kind of boring. There were funny moments, it just didn’t draw me in. The show will come back in October.

    I actually like Minnie Driver’s dress and I think that’s the first time ever (ever ever) that I could say that about Marchesa. For once it’s not a hot frou-frou mess!

    And I love Hayden’s gown, though I find the plunge neckline a wee bit too low for my personal taste. Still, she looks great.

  2. Elizabeth says:

    I guess I’m alone in not liking the draping on Octavia Spencer’s gown. I found it disappointing.

    • Mitch Buchanan Rocks! says:

      She would look good with a gown in a simple cut – she’s got a gorgeous figure that shouldn’t be hidden by all these details – too bad the skinnie minnies only wear the tight dresses becasue this lady would rock an LBD.

    • Kori says:

      This isn’t one of my favorites on her–though the color is great–but I think she still looks beautiful. She dresses for a fuller figure (a real fuller figure not the Hollywood size-6-is-plus-size fuller figure) in a way that still shows her figure rather than draping it in a muumuu or being swallowed up in tons of fabric. I’m heavier and I always LOVE her red carpet looks. Plus I’m a sucker for red.

  3. BooBooLaRue says:

    Octavia and Viola nailed it! I just wore my first Tadashi Shoji dress to a gala and it was fabulous! Love me some Shoji!

  4. Sam says:

    I like that Hayden went for the faux plunge dress – everybody talks up pregnancy cleavage but people seem to freak out about flaunting it. I say good for her.

    I winced when I saw Viola Davis’ top. That is all.

    And I really like Octavia Spencer. This picture should be presented as evidence from now on when Melissa McCarthy complains that designers do not want to work with larger women or dress them well. She looks great.

  5. Snazzy says:

    Viola Davis and Octavia Spencer look AMAZINGLY beautiful. Hayden is a beautiful girl, and her styling is great, but the outfit is too figure skater-ish in my books.

  6. Sabrina says:

    All the dresses in this post look good, especially Octavia’s.

  7. Dinah says:

    Poor Viola has a grease or liquid spot on her dress!
    Not liking this light/cold color on her, either. A deep jewel tone would have been better. She is just so pretty.

    Minnie is scary skinny.

  8. Bridget says:

    I think it wpuld be strange if you actually were really interested in the gender of a celebrity’s baby.

  9. hutter says:

    Has Hayden had her implants taken out? Her breasts look so much more natural. Or is that the effect of the pregnancy weight gain?

  10. Jenns says:

    Too much belly cupping from Hayden. We get it. You’re pregnant. Also, I love how she plugged her interior designer on the red carpet.

  11. Marianne says:

    I love Hayden’s dress. Soooooo pretty. Octavia Spencer also looked really nice even if she has done that similar look before.

  12. Chinoiserie says:

    I like the color of Viola’s dress but these dresses were not that special.

  13. lucy2 says:

    Octavia knows what works for her and always looks fabulous. Viola’s is a bit tight but I like the color on her, and she always looks classy.
    I like Hayden’s dress, but wish it wasn’t quite so low cut.

  14. LAK says:

    Minnie Driver physically looks like a shadow of her former self. She was blooming and glowing when she first arrived on the scene. Now I find her to be too thin, too tanned and her skin is dried up looking.

  15. Lara K says:

    Love this dress. It would be too skater ish if she wasn’t pregnant, but on her it just looks like she is highlighting her belly.
    She cups but I did too when I was pregnant and didn’t even realize it. It’s instinctual.

    • wiffie says:

      If some dresses or tops were drapey, I belly cupped on the bottom for pics so I didn’t look like a damn circus tent. Almost a way to say, hey this is allbelly. My pelvis is really this far in underneath. I am not a blimp, thank you. Just a really big balloon. The dramatic top and bottom belly hold makes my eyes roll out my damn head though. Like who are you? Santa Maria, oh holy mother?

  16. L says:

    I never ever did the belly cup or belly rub when I was pregnant. I can’t stand either, and I want to do a gigantic eye roll when I see pregnant women do it. But that’s me.

    • kcarp says:

      I never did either. I hated that stuff. I had a shirt that said “Do NOT Touch It.” I felt morning sickness all the time so I was so not in the mood to be touched.

      As for revealing the gender of stars. Who cares what they are having? Are you getting them a baby gift?

      I hate gender reveal parties too. I feel like people are so self absorbed they think other people really care what they are having. I feel like me are so in the ME generation. Pregnancy Pics, hiring a professional photographer for the birth, constant selfies during and after birth. I think its scary

    Viola and Octavia look terrific. Hayden lo…Zzzzzzzzz.

    Sorry, drifted off there.
