Despite having a hard time jump-starting her career in her early twenties, Shameless star Emmy Rossum showed that persistence can really pay off as Variety honored her at the Power of Women: New York luncheon alongside big Hollywood names, such as Kim Kardashian and Lena Dunham. The 28-year-old, who has once spoken out on the ridiculousness of her Shameless character’s sexuality, showed that it’s not just her popularity on the hit show that landed her a spot on the list — the actress also has an impressive array of charity and public service titles under her belt. Emmy is a YouthAIDS ambassador, an official spokesperson for the breast cancer awareness organization PiNKiTUDE, and is an active environmentalist, among other things.
Emmy got a unanimous nod of approval from style critics all across Netopia as she flawlessly pulled off a head-to-toe tangerine look. From the subtle highlights of her hair, to her eyeshadow and lips, down to her gorgeous Oscar de la Renta dress, and finally to the Louboutin pièce de résistance, Emmy proved that matchy-matchy is not necessarily a bad thing.
