Emmys: A colorful affair

Colors ruled at the Emmy Awards 2011 and the color that lit up the red carpet? Red!!  Red was the favorite color adopted by many stars and this beautiful fiery color did make a bold statement on the red carpet and was without a doubt the color of the evening. The next in line were black and blue. 

Magical Blacks

Julie Bowen in Oscar de la Renta and Neil Lane

Minka Kelly in Dior and Tiffany & Co.

Evan Rachel Wood in Elie Saab and Fred Leighton

Gwyneth Paltrow in Emilio Pucci and Neil Lane

Aimee Teegarden in Romona Keveza
Striking Blues

Claire Danes in Oscar de la Renta and Irit Design

Katie Holmes in Calvin klein

Sparkling White

julianna margulies in Armani Prive
Fiery Reds
Sofia Vergara in Vera Wang

Kate Winslet in Elie Saab and Cartier

Nina Dobrev in Donna Karan and Neil Lane

Lea Michele in Marchesa

Kerry Washington in Zahir Murad

Reds were clearly the favorites among the stars, followed by blacks and blues.  I loved almost all the red gowns and my favorites would be Kate Winslet’s sheath-like Elie Saab gown, Sofia Vergara’s orange-red Vera Wang mermaid gown with ruche detail and Nina Dobrev’s strapless Donna Karan mermaid gown with layered hemline. Also, I loved Kerri Washington’s Zahir Murad shimmering gown, Claire Danes’s black & blue shimmering Oscar de la Renta gown and Julie Brown’s shimmering black Oscar de le Renta gown. Do you agree with my favorite list? What are your favorites from the evening? Would love to hear your views 🙂

    claire danes’ dress looks very pretty! i think i would like minka kelly’s dress if it had some a necklace, earrings, accessories, a better bra, or something. why gwyneth why? yes, she’s pretty, but why does her dress middle thing slightly disturb me? i sound catty today, just ignore this comment or press delete.

    Red is such a bold color to use! Not everyone looks good on red, but I loved every single dress.

    I definitely agree with you..Nina was my fave as you know 😉 BUT I’m so glad you posted all these because I liked a lot of different aspects of different looks. I thought Gwenyths hair and makeup was perfect, but the skirt/top dress was weird and I liked the lace detail on Minkda’s dress. Julie Bowen look amazing too.

    The Emmy’s is definitely a fashion stage to look out to. The red gowns were beautiful and Nina Dobrev looked amazing in her gown. We love the designers.

    Thanks everyone! Loved reading all your comments. 🙂

    Danielle, Red is big for fall and I think it’s a good color for dark moody days 🙂

    Dale, I feel the same way about Gwyneth’s dress. She looked very pretty though and she has an amazing body. 🙂

    Lindsey, Thanks for the logo comment. Yes, Gwyneth does work hard on her abs and it shows. 🙂

    Teddy, I think Minka Kelly’s dress is understated too but she is very pretty so that probably helps. I didn’t get Gwyneth’s dress either but love the work on it. 🙂
