  • Make the Emmys ‘one-and-done’

Reds, blues dominate red carpet at Emmys

– Lena Dunham showed up for the Emmys in an awkward pink confection and Kerry Washington went for a bright orange dress with dark sparkle peeking out from underneath, but it was the reds and blues that dominated the carpet Monday.

And neutrals, too.

On Team Red were best actress in a comedy winner Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who looked a bit pinched in a tight Carolina Herrera, and Christina Hendricks in a gaudy, one-shoulder Marchesa with yards and yards of draping fabric, loud floral embroidery at the waist and a plunging neckline.

Julia Roberts, at 46, had fashion observers near speechless as she showed off her legs in a bubbly beaded mini in deep blue.

Keke Palmer, of “The Trip to Bountiful,” wowed in a blue cobalt trumpet-shaped gown from Rubin Singer.

Layers of fabric skimmed the gown, and a structured strapless bodice was cut in a deep V.

Baby bumps were represented. Hayden Panettiere (who announced it's a girl) lovingly stroked her belly in a metallic fitted gown. Amanda Peet, pregnant with her third child, was in an unfortunate, empire-waisted floral.

Washington bucked the color trend in fitted orange Prada with a high slit and beaded front pleats.

“I saw it hanging there and I knew it was a contender,” she said.

Sofia Vergara, always a red carpet stunner, went for a more classic look in a fitted white Roberto Cavalli gown with a space agey bodice.
