Stars do sunset shades on Emmys red carpet
Question of the Day
A late-summer sunset with vibrant purple, red and blue gowns dominated the horizon Sunday at the 62nd Emmy Awards in Los Angeles.
January Jones and Christina Hendricks, both from the heavily stylized "Mad Men," lived up to their on-screen fashionista counterparts in colorful look-at-me gowns. Jones wore a bright, electric-blue corset gown with an uneven hem and stiff A-line skirt by Versace, and Hendricks wore a pale lilac Zac Posen with feathers on the sleeves and hemline and the very low neckline audiences have grown accustomed to seeing her _ and her hourglass figure _ in.
Sofia Vergara went with the statuette look in a gold, ombre beaded Carolina Herrera.
The stars of "Glee" also made an impression, especially an all-grown-up Lea Michele in a navy blue Oscar de la Renta gown with a strapless neckline and ruffled mermaid bottom.
"I wanted to do blue _ I've done black and green," Michele said. "I was ready for blue to be the color, and I love Oscar de la Renta so when I saw this, it was like he read my mind."
Some of the other trends on the carpet were one-shoulder gowns _ on Elisabeth Moss, Jane Lynch and Julie Benz, among others _ and dangling drop earrings, seen on Tina Fey, Eva Longoria Parker and Julia Louis-Dreyfus.
Fey, Parker and Louis-Dreyfus also were all in the black-dress club that's always in force at awards shows.
A new member? Kelly Osborne, who's joining a E!'s Fashion Police, who showed off her post-"Dancing With the Stars" shape in a sophisticated black gown with a V-neck and jeweled gathered at the shoulders by Tony Ward.
