One of the winners from last night is Miss Lucy Cohu, a British actress. Best known for her role in the movie "Becoming Jane" and for her career on television, Ms. Cohu was wearing a beautiful black sequined dress by the British designer Ben De Lisi. She won the best actress award for her role in Forgiven, a gritty drama about a suburban housewife who reports her husband for sexually abusing their daughter but later decides to rebuild their lives together.

All the men present were dapper and great looking with either tuxedos or jacket and pants. Overall, black dominated, as usual as is for men, with a touch of grey here and there as seen on the handsome and immensely talented Paul Blackthorne (he is a claimed actor as well as a photographer). As for Lance Reddick, the actor sported a camel colored leather half coat and a dark, elegant and distinguished as usual.

Judith Light, who has captivated audiences worldwide with the TV series "Who's the boss" and who is currently seen on the hit ABC series "Ugly Betty" was all glamour, charm and distinction in a long and satiny gray Nicole Miller dress with an assorted vest.

Up and coming actress Cecilia Suarez was wearing a very short and unidentified black and red plaid dress cinched with a black belt.

Brenda Asnicar, an Argentine actress nominated for "Patito Feo, la historia mas linda" (Ugly Duckling) was wearing a sweet and graceful pink dress that enhanced her petite and graceful figure. The dress is a design of the Argentine designer Veronica de la Canal.


Kelly Rutherford

Kelly Rutherford, best known for her long running role in Melrose Place, walked the red carpet in a beautiful Catherine Malandrino off-the-shoulder black dress.

Touches of Max Azria were seen here and there in elegant and original outfits here and there. New designers were spotted like Mauzi by Eve (from Germany).

That night saw the first ever victory for Jordan and Argentine. The United Kingdom won 7 Emmys, making it the clear winner of the evening. While across the street... Nicole Kidman and Jennifer Aniston were getting raves and hoorays from bystanders cheering them.

I have to agree the dress Lucy was wearing was amazing!!! Ben de Lisi is a great designer although the man himself comes across as very pompous!!
