Julia Louis-Dreyfus attends HBO's annual post-Emmy reception at the Pacific Design Center in West Hollywood, Calif., on Sept. 23, 2012. So how did this Emmy vet choose her Vera Wang gown? "It was a very important dress for me this year," she told Wonderwall. "I know it sounds obnoxious, but being tied with Lucille Ball for number of nominations, I wanted a certain look, and Vera did that. We talked at great length. She created this, it's a lot of hard work and it's a lot of ruching. And I love the color."
So with 13 Emmy nominations under her belt, how does she feel? "It feels different. It's a new adventure," she said. "Having this kind of accolade, it's impossible to describe. I'm overwhelmed with joy."
