Julie Bowen Wears Odd Sheer Dress To Los Angeles Gala (PHOTOS, POLL)

Fresh off her stunning and simple Monique Lhullier Emmys gown, Julie Bowen decided to go rogue and amp up the sparkle factor for an appearance at the Power 2012 charity gala in Los Angeles on Tuesday night.

The 42-year-old "Modern Family" star went the sheer route the safe way by selecting a Zuhair Murad frock with glittery blue-green patches, covering up everything necessary. She slicked her hair back in a ponytail and chose a black clutch.

While we love the styling, we can't decide if Bowen's frock looks cute, or more like a sparkly lichen. Check out the pics below and cast your vote!
