Cat Deeley Dishes on Her Emmy Dress

We’re dying to see what our favorite television stars including Zooey Deschanel, Claire Danes and Sofia Vergara will wear to this year’s Emmy Awards, and while she won’t tell all, the always-stunning Cat Deeley is giving us an idea of what to expect from her.

“I think I’m gonna wear a red dress. I think. I’m not sure,” she told PEOPLE at the Audi and Derek Lam Pre-Emmy Party in Los Angeles on Sunday. Unfortunately, she wouldn’t reveal anymore about the gown itself, but she was more forthcoming about the accessories. “I have an appointment at Bulgari tomorrow to go and look at diamonds.”

One thing we do know for sure: the So You Think You Can Dance host won’t look perfect — but that’s OK. “I think it’s a very European aesthetic to take different items and put them together and match them up in a completely unique way that looks a little bit almost undone and disheveled — but I like that,” the British star explained. “I much preferred that kind of look than head-to-toe in one designer or matching earrings and rings. I like it to be kind of an amalgamation of lots of different things.”

And though Deeley is a total red carpet pro, she insists it doesn’t come naturally. “I’m not very good at being a girl. I’m a bit clumsy,” she joked. “I’m more than likely to fall over in my Christian Louboutins and have lipstick on my teeth and all the rest of it.” Tell us: Who are you looking forward to seeing at the Emmy Awards?
