A Colorful Emmys Red Carpet

I was debating whether I should post about the Emmys since so many people do it but the color was too hard to resist.  I think this was the best dressed red carpet I’ve seen in a while too.  Yellow was the lucky color and everyone who wore it won an Emmy including Julianne Moore above in Dior Couture.  It was actually a cashmere sweater tucked into a ball skirt that looked amazing against her red hair. 

Not everyone loved Claire Danes’ yellow Lanvin dress but I thought it looked flattering on the mom to be. 

Julie Bowen looked amazing in chartreuse Monique Lhullier. 

Allison Williams of Girls looked gorgeous in green Oscar de la Renta. 

There were mixed reviews for Julianna Margulies’ garden printed Giambattista Valli but I thought it was beautiful. 

I also liked Elisabeth Moss’s floral Dolce & Gabbana dress and her fabulous new hair color. 

This is the best Heidi Klum has ever looked but just wish she hadn’t done the Angelina leg thing. 

This electric blue Pamela Roland was a great color for Jane Levy. 

Let’s ignore the hair on Ashley Judd and focus on the pretty plum shade of her Carolina Herrera dress. 

Orangy red was another popular shade and this Andrew Gn gown looked great on Cat Deeley. 

Jessica Lange wowed in this orange J. Mendel.  

I also loved this orange Monique Lhullier gown on Padma Lakshmi. 

Ginnifer Goodwin is always fashion forward and this Monique Lhullier dress has her on many best dressed lists. 

We should all age as gracefully as Julia Louis-Dreyfus in Vera Wang.  

I also thought this was the best Tina Fey has ever looked in Vivienne Westwood which is usually not a red carpet choice of designers.  

Kerry Washington also wowed in Vivienne Westwood and is definitely one of my best dressed of the night. 

I loved the chic simplicity of Jessica Pare’s black and white look from Jason Wu. 

Could Kiernan Shipka be any cuter?!  Her custom Zac Posen is perfectly age appropriate for the young actress. 

Grey was another popular shade and I loved Emily VanCamp’s J. Mendel gown. 

Connie Britton also loved lovely in grey by Andrew Gn. 

Jane Krakowski was another who looked chic in grey by Kaufman Franco. 

After seeing the Reem Acra runway show during fashion week, I can see why Sarah Paulson chose one of her dresses.  It’s ethereal. 

I joked last night that Amy Poehler is going to whether her divorce just fine.  She looked amazing in Stella McCartney. 

I thought this was the best Melissa McCartney has looked on the red carpet. She was beautiful in black and might have designed her dress since a designer wasn’t listed online. 

Not everyone liked Lena Dunham’s Prada look but she is also one of my best dressed.  I think she looks absolutely gorgeous with her new haircut.  In a sea of strapless dresses, her sleeves look very chic. 

Alec Baldwin and his new wife Hilaria Thomas color coordinated which I thought was sweet. 

Jonn Hamm and Jennifer Westfeldt looked lovely together too. 

Homeland winner Damian Lewis. 

Aziz Ansari looked dapper.

    Heather I agree, as far as fashion goes this was one of the best Emmys ever. The gowns were so beautifully varied in style, color, and design.

    Julianne Moore has shown us how you can be mysterious and sensual without showing everything. I love all of your favorites as well.

    I am in love with Damien Lewis and I really miss the loathsome Soames of the Forsyte Saga.
    Great photos!

    I agree with Julianne Moore as your choice of best dressed on the carpet, and I was also wowed by Elizabeth Moss in that floral D&G. Padma Lakshmi was also one of my favourites, but WHO IS SHE?

    I didn’t watch the Emmys last night so it was fun to see your round up. I love all the Orange dresses. Jessica Lange looked fantastic.

    Jessica Pare was my best dressed of the night. One of my favorite things this Emmys was that there were so many divergent opinions on who was best dressed. One person’s best might be another’s worst, or vice versa. Love your list! I am glad you did it.
