Emmy Rossum has always maintained a certain elegance when it comes to style. Cotton Incorporated has even taken notice, placing the Shameless star front and center in a new advertising campaign. The actress/singer's spot highlights New York City and has Emmy outfitted in designs from Monique Lhuillier, Elie Tahari, Oscar de la Renta, as well as Phillip Lim.

It's really no surprise that Emmy was chosen to represent the brand since she's been consistently  impressing on the red carpet for years now. Back in April 2009 at the 6th Annual Spring Dinner Dance in New York City, she opted for this tiered light blue Christian Dior. That embellished waistband really set the Resort 2009 gown apart. When it came time for Fashion Group International's 26th Annual Night of Stars in New York City in October 2009, Emmy looked like a golden goddess in this draped Donna Karan gown.

This emerald Yves Saint Laurent served as Emmy’s sophisticated selection for the Metropolitan Opera gala premiere of Rossini's Le Comte Ory in New York City toward the end of March. What really made the gown stand out was its purple jeweled waistband and her coordinating Yves Saint Laurent suede peep-toes. Etro's colorblock number was Emmy's pick for the CBS, The CW and Showtime TCA Party last August in Beverly Hills. The Spring 2011 silk mini featured shades of blue on top and a tan skirt. She rounded out the look with a pair of Anita Ko earrings and Brian Atwood's Divine sandals.
