Sunday night's 63d Emmys featured two prominent red carpet trends and dresses that were mostly predictable with few surprises. Both Lea Michele (below, right) and Kate Winslet chose sleek, thick knit scarlet gowns (Marchesa for Lea Michele, Elie Saab for Winslet) that they both gushed to E! were "comfy" -- and I think that's red carpet speak for "I can breathe and eat solids in this dress."
Red carpet red continued to file toward L.A.'s Nokia Theatre on "The Vampire Diaries" starlet Nina Dobrev in Donna Karan, "Modern Family" actress Sofia Vergara in Vera Wang, and even redhead comedian, Kathy Griffin, dared to step out in a ruched candy apple red Oscar de la Renta gown. Likewise, some prom-ready frocks added fun to the mix with "New Girl" darling Zooey Deschanel (above center; in a bubble gum pink Monique Lhuillier) and "The Big Bang Theory" actress Kaley Cuoco (in a tea-length black tulle Romona Keveza), who came complete with a mix-and-match manicure and dad as a date. (Does it get any cuter than that?)
My favorite stunners included "Mad Men" co-stars Elisabeth Moss and Christina Hendricks, who opted for delicate beaded vintage-inspired gowns that just screamed old-school Hollywood glam. Also, Jon Hamm in Tom Ford ... basically, I consider that the holy grail.
Who were some of your favorites from last night?
