Lorena Sarbu Gown Delivers Sensual Elegance as Shohreh Aghdashloo Wins at 61st Annual Primetime Emmy Awards

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - September 21, 2009) - From the red carpet to the awards podium, Shohreh Aghdashloo dressed in a striking iridescent blue Lorena Sarbu ( couture was a vision of beauty and grace amongst her peers during the 61st Annual Primetime Emmy awards. The ethereal and light Lorena Sarbu gown embodied glamorous perfection, employing Italian silk chiffon melded with an exquisitely pleated bustier. Delicate expanding straps kissed Aghdashloo's shoulders as the gown's rear criss-cross straps acted as elegant, enticing framework for her back. On Sunday, September 20, 2009, Aghdashloo captured her first Emmy win as designer Lorena Sarbu continues to make her design presence felt at Hollywood's biggest television awards ceremonies.

Shohreh Aghdashloo's win comes in the category of Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Miniseries or Movie for her powerful performance in HBO's "House Of Saddam." This was Aghdashloo's first Emmy nomination. But the Iranian born beauty is not a newcomer to the awards arena. In 2003, Aghdashloo skyrocketed to fame with her portrayal of Nadereh Behrani in "House of Sand and Fog" opposite Ben Kingsley and Jennifer Connelly. Her performance earned her an Oscar nomination and top honors, such as the Independent Spirit Award for Best Supporting Female, Los Angeles Film Critics Association award for Best Supporting Actress and the New York Film Critics Circle Award for Best Supporting Actress. Aghdashloo's other diverse credits include, "The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2," "X-Men: The Last Stand" and FOX's "24."

Aghdashloo's triumph places Lorena Sarbu's designs in Emmy's winner circle for a second time this year. During the 36th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards held earlier this month, Tamara Braun walked Emmy's victory steps in a stunning Lorena Sarbu pewter chiffon and silk mermaid gown.

Passionate about marrying design creation with the talent's own unique personal aura and allure, Lorena Sarbu's custom creations are alive in so many ways, which set her apart from the rest of the couture set. The Emmys has witnessed the wondrous enchantment of Lorena Sarbu... Oscar is next!
