Hayden Panettiere: 2012 Emmy Awards [PHOTOS]

Beautiful Hayden Panettiere looked elegant and stunning as she graced the red carpet at the 2012 Emmy Awards at Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles, California on Sunday. The actress wore a breathtakingly flawless blue and gold Marchesa gown, with a flowing train. The look was paired with Harry Winston jewels, Giuseppe Zanotti heels, and a Judith Leiber clutch. The draping on this dress is positively smashing and the floating gold embroidery looked gorgeous with Hayden’s olive skin. This look is a win and Panettiere’s stylist must have known, because they left her makeup simple and kept her hair slicked back in a bun.

23-year-old Hayden recently starred as a guest judge on Project Runway. The actress has grown up before our eyes and is making waves in ABC’s Nashville with her costar Connie Britton.
