Anna Paquin is a Cheongsam Chick

Anna Paquin is a Cheongsam Chick

True Blood star Anna Paquin slips into a hip-hugging cheongsam (one-piece Chinese dress for women) at the Late Show with David Letterman outside New York City’s Ed Sullivan theater on Thursday (July 16).

The 26-year-old actress finished off her look with a pair of Jimmy Choo “Clue” patent leopard-print sandals. CNN’s Silver Fox Anderson Cooper is also a guest.

True Blood and Friday Night Lights topped this year’s Emmy snubs. NBC’s football drama received only one nomination — for casting. Blood only earned nominations for art direction, casting and title design — no nods for their actors. For shame!

    Anna Looks Great in the black Cheongsam. It would look better if she her hair was black like she had it in Xmen movies.

  • Irish Girl

    Looks especially lovely in the yellow.

  • jh

    Thank God she wasn’t nominated. she is the worst actress ever. i hate her on true blood. she shouts her lines. take some acting classes!!!!!!!

  • http://infantlifejacket.net/ Infant Life Jacket

    Wow she looks great way better then when she was on xmen

  • natalie

    she’s adorable!

  • twifanatic Amanda

    She looks so great. I hope her time on Letterman is online later. I would love to see it. I always forget what channel things are on…

  • cocoablossoms

    she’s adorable as always. too bad stephen isn’t there looking fly with her.

  • Annabelle

    Maybe not the best actress in the world, but I love her as Sookie.
    Now. . . why does she always look so trashy?
    Maybe it’s the hair, maybe the eyebrows, maybe the gap between her teeth. Dunno.
    Alex Skarsgard is the hottest vampire anyway.

  • Paulie

    I love True Blood, but the most egregious snub was the exclusion of the women of Big Love (especially Jeanne Triplehorn, Chloe Sevigny and Grace Zabriskie) from the acting categories.

  • Brandy

    I’m so happy she’s wearing a larger heel finally. Her body looks so much longer with a higher heel. They do her body justice!

  • http://madonna.com MADONNA

    Interesting choice of dress.

  • kyraplus182

    They did get snubbed!!!! And #4 it doesn’t necessarily mean that she should of got the nomination (even though i think’s she’s amazing in true blood). Like i thought at least Nelsan Ellis should get best supporting actor. Or Rutina Wesley for best supporting actress.

  • ems

    Great New Zealand actress

  • eyes on fire

    She is cute as sookie. She’s a cute girl. Her hair is so blonde and she is so light the black looks very dramatic on her. Have to be careful with black when you have coloring such as hers. I don’t know why she would want to don something so dark anyway. I’m sure other colors would do her more JUSTICE.

  • whatever

    She has lost a TON of weight….I do think she looks better as a brunette though.

  • ha

    true blood, big love, and no 1 ladies detective agency were robbed.

  • key oui

    Her acting is truly awful in True Blood. It puts a downer on the whole show.

    The only reason to watch is Eric now and he’s usually only in it for like 5 minutes!

  • Autumn M

    She needs to fix her teeth, other than that, her body is rocking and I like that dress.

  • vmars111

    Needs more Stephen Moyer.

    Mmm! Stephen Moyer!

    Lord, she was such a snot at Letterman! And would only look at the female paps!

    She is the worst actress on TrueBlood. Alan Ball made a mistake in casting her. She had to beg and audition 6 times to get the part. Alan Ball should have held out longer for a better actress. I know she has won awards-a GG (bought for her by Alan and HBO) and an Oscar (when she was 9), she is still the worst actress I have ever watched. I only watch the show for the other characters, who out perform her ,if they are in the scene with her. Luckily, the other characters have taken over the show and I only have to watch her pout and screech out her lines like a Howler Monkey, a few minutes a show.

  • Patrick the starfish

    With her teeth and that yellow dress she looks like Sponge Bob.

  • jay

    Wow! There’s alot of anna haters on here. I feel I have to defend anna, since we can all say our view of her, but she cant come on here and defend herself. Not that she needs 2.. I would like 2 c all u peps out there, get cast in a feature film at the age of 9 with no previous acting experience and then get an oscar.. On top of that, back it up with a golden globe as an adult.. Yeah she is the worst actress in the world!??? …She obviously has some acting skills since shes been able to carve an 17 year acting career from post-oscar till now.. Does that not count??? yeah she must be such a bad actor!!!… Anna didnt encompass the character of sookie for looks, but she still got the part… So she is still a bad actor???… anna is a kiwi and has to put on a southern accent…. So she is still a bad actor???? yeah right!!! y’all need to sit down and think about what you say about people, if you dont have the facts to back yourself.. Go Anna! @ the end of the day, your the lead of a great show on t.v., with awards to back it up, and these people have what??? yeah thats right nothing!!!.. anna you keep doing your thang girl!!! these haters got nothing on you!!!

  • http://allwomenstalk.com/author/lily-mathilda Meream

    She looks so cute in that yellow dress. I actually love the gap on her teeth. Gives her more character.

  • Meow Mix

    Jay-

    As a southerner I have to tell you-Anna’s accent is horrible! She has a career, really? What was the last movie she was in that did not go direct to video? Alot of the TrueBlood fans do not like her at all. If she is such a good actress, why has her part on the show gotten smaller this year??? She was featured more in the show last season. Again with her career-has she gotten any more offers to do movies off season?? Not according to an interview I read. The rest of the cast are getting offers. The hallmark movie she was in, showcased her horrble acting skills and she recieved poor reviews from it. Face it she sucks!!!

  • anthony

    She looks GORGEOUS!!! Love this girl she is stunning,unique and talented!

  • RmH

    Love Anna and Love True Blood!

    Meow Mix…as a Northerner, I hate to tell you this, but all you Southerners sound to us, EXACTLY like the actors on True Blood.

  • shameless

    Anyone know who made that dress? It rocks and I want one.

  • Ckayed

    She rocks!

  • just me

    I LOVE her on True Blood!! One of her best roles ever. She really should have been nominated along with the ladies of Big Love.

  • http://justjared rene

    anna paquin is extremely beautiful and talented i love her on TRUE Blood the love scenes with her and bill are what keeps me coming back for more True Blood. keep up the good work anna your fans love you.

  • jojo

    She is absolutely, positively THE WORST PART OF TRUE BLOOD!!! It’s a good show with some good actors but she is unbelievably bad, it’s actually painful to watch her! And the teeth? UGH!

    p.s. That black dress is hideous and her hair is so plastered it looks like a helmet. Not a good look for her!

  • Tamara

    RMH: I’m a Northerner too and I can easily tell how BAD, FORCED AND FAKE her accent sounds.

  • Hannah

    Go New Zealand!

  • Bitchetta

    This hair color adds about 25 years…..she looks more like a 50 yr. old….she needs to go back to her natural brunette hair color.

  • anon

    Anna Paquin is a terrible actor.. if you can’t see this in True Blood then you’re blind and or completely ignorant.
