One source claims the 18-year-old was actually bullied for being there -- apparently not everyone thought she earned the right to walk the shows!
The insider spilled:
Hayden Panettiere was one of the many celebs who went with a brightly hued outfit Sunday night at the Emmys.
Her J.Mendel dress is really pretty, but isn't it a little old for her?? She's twenty! She could go a little more daring than this. While it's lovely, with old-lady-bouffant and the matchy matchy lipstick, it's a little granny for someone so young.
She does look pretty, though.
What do U think? Is Hayden's dress gorge or gran?
