A late-summer sunset with vibrant purple, red and blue gowns dominated the horizon Sunday at the 62nd Emmy Awards in Los Angeles. January Jones and Christina Hendricks, both from the heavily stylised Mad Men, lived up to their on-screen fashionista
counterparts in colourful look-at-me gowns.
Jones wore a bright, electric blue corset gown with an uneven hem and stiff A-line skirt by Versace, while Hendricks wore a pale lilac Zac Posen with feathers on the sleeves and hemline, and the very low neckline that audiences have grown accustomed to seeing her hourglass figure in. Sofia Vergara went with the statuette look in a gold, ombre beaded Carolina Herrera.
The stars of Glee also made an impression, especially an all-grown-up Lea Michele in a navy blue Oscar de la Renta gown. “I wanted to do blue - I’ve done black and green,” Michele said. “I was ready for blue to be the colour, and I love Oscar de la Renta. So when I saw this, it was like he read my mind.”
Some of the other trends on the carpet were one-shoulder gowns - on Elisabeth Moss, Jane Lynch and Julie Benz, among others - and dangling earrings, seen on Tina Fey, Eva Longoria Parker and Julia Louis-Dreyfus. Fey, Parker and Louis-Dreyfus also joined the black-dress club at the awards.
A new member in the gang was Kelly Osbourne, who showed off her post Dancing With the Stars shape in a sophisticated black gown with a V-neck by Tony Ward.
