The Primetime Emmy Awards have come and gone once again, and it's time for the annual post-show red carpet fashion rundown. Which stars stunned, and which celebrities left us wishing they'd tried just a little harder on the 2013 Emmys red carpet? Find out here now!
First, though, we thought we'd mention a few style trends we saw emerge at this year's event. The 2013 Emmy Awards red carpet was awash in bold reds and purples, but soft, ethereal pinks, creams and greys were on display, as well. Designers such as J. Mendel and Prada saw their creations walk the flashbulb gauntlet on the backs of some of the hottest Hollywood bodies.
In the case of Prada specifically, actress Michelle Dockery chose a dramatic, voluminous gown by the design house that both perfectly evoked the arrival of autumn and appropriately marked the black-tie occasion. The gown featured a bright red bodice with a satin bow at the nape of the neck and a full, high-low skirt in a deep maroon. Dockery wore her hair short and sleek and carried a stunning red clutch to complete her look.
Also looking amazing on the red carpet was comic Sarah Silverman, who chose a tight black cocktail dress for the red carpet. The vintage-inspired Vamp dress is reportedly by Deadly Dames and cost just $110! Silverman also rocked a gold mini-dress for a musical-comedy skit performance with Emmys host Neil Patrick Harris, and she looked even better. We're not sure about her shoes on the red carpet, though; the curved-heel Lady Gaga look wasn't quite doing it for us. (Wonder how much those cost!)
Though we didn't care for her cream-colored dress, Claire Danes of "Homeland" showed off clean, fresh makeup and a short, shiny bob on the 2013 Emmys red carpet that we thought were pretty darn cute! Check out our interview here with Ms. Danes following her win at last year's Emmy Awards.
Pro dancer Julianne Hough showed plenty of skin at the Emmy Awards on Sept. 22, leaving little to be desired in what was essentially an off-shoulder gray bodysuit with gray netting shimmering over it. As perfect as her figure is, we honestly didn't find this ensemble all that flattering; maybe on the dance floor, but on the red carpet it felt incomplete, even on such a gorgeous body.
Once again, it was Sofia Vergara of "Modern Family" fame who really blew us away. The actress ruled the 2013 Emmy Awards red carpet in a curve-hugging, lace-detailed red mermaid gown, with long, dirty-blonde curls cascading down her back and glimmering green jewels dangling from her ears and adorning a finger on her right hand.
Singer Carrie Underwood wowed in a strapless purple gown nipped at the waist by a black satin belt on the Emmys red carpet, but looked even more amazing in the cobalt blue gown she donned during her performance.
