Last year was a roller coaster ride, but despite its ups and downs, 2016 still deserves major props for the return of velvet (have you seen our no-sew velvet turban?). And lucky for us, the trend is continuing through 2017. Julianne Hough attended the xXx: The Return of Xander Cage Los Angeles premiere last night wearing a Zuhair Murad velvet dress that was every.Single.Thing.

'xXx: Return of Xander Cage' - LA Premiere

The Emmy-award winning dancer-turned-actress graced the red carpet in a long sleeve, navy-blue velvet dress. While the combo of long sleeves and velvet may sound suffocating, the sheer design gave it a lightweight look. And the plunging neckline balanced the length with a sexy splash of skin. We see you, Julianne!

Also front and center is her gorgeous oval engagement ring from Washington Capitals center, Brooks Laich. Gotta love a woman who makes it look this easy.

What do you think of Juliette’s look? Let us know @BritandCo!
