Lucy Liu, born on December 2, 1968, is an American actress known for her versatile career. In terms of her height, she stands at 5 feet 1 ½ inches (156.2 cm), although she has humorously claimed to be 5 feet 3 inches tall.

Despite her petite stature, Liu has achieved significant success in her acting career, earning accolades such as a Critics’ Choice Television Award, two Screen Actors Guild Awards, and a Seoul International Drama Award. She was also nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award.

Lucy Liu Dazzles in Red Lace Mini Dress at PaleyFest 2016

Lucy was spotted hitting the red carpet at the 2016 PaleyFest at the Paley Center in New York.

She was already in her fifth season of “Elementary” in 2016, as the show debuted in 2012. The television series, with Lucy playing the role of Dr. Joan Watson, had just started its new season at the beginning of that year, leading the entire cast to ramp up their promotional efforts.

Lucy wore a red lace mini dress from Monique Lhuillier, which showed off her slim legs and highlighted her toned physique.

The actress styled her look with a Jimmy Choo clutch, jewelry from Pasquale Bruni, and a pair of Stuart Weitzman “Nudist” sandals in glitter.

Overall, we think Lucy looks great. Her skin is glowing, her hair is in place, and we can only guess how many hours she spends in the gym.

Her outfit, however, is a bit too prom for us. The sad part is that Lucy can pull off outfits that are a bit more risky.

Prom look aside, Lucy absolutely killed her promotional run thanks to the “Elementary” cast. The actress uploaded a photo of the show’s press conference, captioned, “Proud to be w/ my WERK squad.”

We can attest that Lucy’s “werk” has carried their show this far. Now, all she needs is that outfit with an oomph. Shop the Stuart Weitzman “Nudist” sandals on Amazon, Nordstrom, and Zappos.
