While folks on the east coast were battening down the hatches last night and preparing for the worst courtesy of Superstorm Sandy, it was business as usual on the other side of the US as starts attended the 2012 International Women's Media Foundation's Courage In Journalism Awards in Los Angeles.

Olivia Munn wore a dramatic Peter Pilotto dress for the occasion - the velvet paneled 'Alana' dress with crossover bodice seaming and a print inspired by Japanese light trucks. She let the dress do the talking with slicked back hair and minimal makeup, which really worked with such an intricate style.

Her dress had cuff detail on the upper arms which isn't obvious on the version of the dress that Net a Porter is selling (right, £960).

However, if that's the part of the dress that you love, the version stocked by Far Fetch (via Belgian boutique SN3) definitely has this detail, but retails at £1093.
