Hollywood stars arrived in full force and with their fashionable foot forward at the Entertainment Weekly pre-Emmy party. The celebration was hosted at Fig & Olive Melrose Place in West Hollywood to kick-off Emmy weekend and it welcomed a who's who list of hottest stars including Blair Underwood, Jamie Chung, Ashlee Simpson and Garcelle Beauvais.
Gabrielle Union, who hit the orange carpet with beau Dwayne Wade, wore a navy v-neck Pierre Balman dress. While Cobie Smulders from How I met your Mother rocked a form-fitting, sleeveless Valentino dress with blue-black-and white guipure-lace. Smulders, who finished the look with a simple updo and dainty clutch, was excited for the night's festivities. "I love EW. I've always been a fan of the magazine."
Smulders' co-star from How I met your mother, Cristin Milioti, also arrived in Valentino. "It's like a little kittenish also a little rock-n-roll, a little punk, a little unexpected. It's good. I like it a lot." This was Milioti's first Emmy's party and in order to nail the perfect look, she worked with a stylist to help her pull off a style that she could feel confident rocking on the carpet. "This is my first time working with a stylist. It was awesome. She was wonderful."
Karina Smirnoff from Dancing with the Stars went for a bold and bright look. "We're saying bye to summer. We're not going to be able to wear bight colors for much longer. It's like bye summer. We'll miss you." remarked Smirnoff about her yellow v-neck, lightweight dress that gathered at the waist.
The Entertainment Weekly party is an annual event that celebrates TV's biggest weekend. It honors the 2013 Emmy nominees and the stars of the new fall TV season.
