Was it the end-of-summer blues? The threat of a double-dip recession? Whatever the reason, the stars on the Emmys’ red carpet kept it remarkably low-key with simple, elegant column gowns in navy, black, and white. The parade, while elegant, was a bit soporific for our taste, but there were a few style standouts (like Edie Falco of "Nurse Jackie," center) -- and a few misses (including Christina Hendricks of "Mad Men," left, and Dianna Agron of "Glee," right). Take a look at who pulled it off, and who didn't.
