The actress also spoke to Nylon about her look for the night, telling the publication: "I love a monochromatic moment and the stunning vintage Emilio Pucci gown truly captured my vision. As I was being honored at the Accessories Council Excellence Awards, I really put a lot of thought into the small details of my look including stunning Grace Lee earrings, and jewelry by Leon Yvonne. And of course, you can't go wrong with a Jimmy Choo pump and Judith Leiber clutch!"

Asked about her pre-red carpet ritual, Julianne replied: "My favorite part about an event is seeing old friends and meeting new ones. For rituals, I love to play music and sing in the car on the way, while snapping a few fun pics and any last minute touch ups. Then I'm ready to hit the town!"
