Sunday night’s Emmy telecast had us seeing red — but not in a bad way! The night’s biggest stars arrived at the show in a slew of gorgeous gowns, ruling the red carpet in dramatic shades of scarlet. 

Glee‘s Lea Michele was among the first to set the trend in a bright Marchesa gown with embellished shoulders. Winner Kate Winslet followed suit, flaunting her famous curves in an Elie Saab dress. Red-hot Modern Family star Sofia Vergara went for a bombshell look with her dress (and makeup), slinking into the show in Vera Wang. Meanwhile, presenter Kerry Washington brought some sparkle to the Emmys in her Zuhair Murad gown, while Vampire Diaries actress Nina Dobrev stunned in her mermaid-style Donna Karan dress.

Other stars who had us on red alert? The Office‘s Angela Kinsey, nominee Mireille Enos and pre-show hostesses Nancy O’Dell and Giuliana Rancic. Naturally, they all looked lovely in their crimson gowns, but we want to know: Which look was your favorite?

That Kerry chick is scary looking!

Kerry Washington’s dress is gorgeous – and she looks stunning in it. 2nd choice: Lea Michele. (I see I’m in the minority with my choices. LOL)

Nicole on

Does Kerry Washington have a white undergarment beneath her dress? It looks like it, I think. Looks odd. The dress is pretty otherwise, though.

I would have picked Sofia, but other than in the above photo her dress looked coral, touching more on orange than red to me. Instead I picked Lea. My TV must need adjusting.

Kim on

Nicole, no, it’s just refection of all the lights on the sparkles on her dress.

My fav is Kate Winslet. Very classy..but sexy!

gooniesandy on

None, Martha Plimpton was my pick! She looked amazing!

Ali on

Kerry Washington took my breath away!! But honestly, so did Kate, and then Lea and Sofia look amazing, and Nina looks drop-dead gorgeous. Where’s the “all of them” button!!

Nina looks absolutely stunning. Second choice the gorgeous sofia

Matthew on

I can’t believe you didn’t list Martha Plimpton! Her dress was sparkly, gorgeous, and the silhouette made her look like a million bucks!

Emily on

I also think Martha Plimpton’s red dress was better than any of the options here!

N on

MARTHA PLIMPTON!!!!! Fix this NOW and add her. Her dress was red and GORGEOUS. Do you “people” have something against her???

lulu on

Where is Martha Plimpton. She looked terrific.

Didn’t like the sleeves on Lea’s, the top part of Kate’s i didn’t like the shape of,Sofia’s was gorgeous,didn’t like the bottom of Kerry’s and Nina’s was the best, absolutely PERFECT!

Caroline on

Nina Dobrev looked absolutely flawless. But I like Sofia Vergara’s dress too.

Terri on

They forgot to include Martha Plimpton in that sequined red dress! She looked gorgeous!

Stacy on

Sofia looks like Sophia Loren. Beautiful and classy.

Sandy on

Kate is by far the more “glamorous” woman of the five shown. In my opinion glamor comes with maturity and a sense of style. Kate carries herself far better than the others. That may change as they mature.

Kelly on

Giuliana Rancic’s dress was by far the most beautiful!

wampowbeck on

Nina Dobrev for sure

sarah on

Sophia’s dress was not red. It was an orangy-tangerine color. I think she looked gorgeous, maybe even Best Dressed of the whole night, but since it wasn’t red, I picked Kate’s dress as my favorite of the red ones. Where is Martha Plimpton in this poll though?! Her dress WAS red, and was GORGEOUS!

cool red dress

Leslie on

Sofia looked gorgeous, but her dress isn’t really red, it looks more coral. I love Nina’s dress, and I think the sleeves on Lea’s dress are really pretty. So I voted for Nina.

I do accept as true with all the concepts you have presented for your post. They’re really convincing and will definitely work. Nonetheless, the posts are too short for newbies. May just you please lengthen them a bit from next time? Thanks for the post.
