Blake Lively, Hayden Panettiere Are Red-Hot At Emmy Awards

Leighton Meester, January Jones, Chloë Sevigny shine in white, night's other big color.

If the VMAs were all about silver sparkle last weekend, then Sunday night's Emmy Awards were all about looking hot in red and white. While some actresses, including Alyson Hannigan and Tina Fey, embraced black, a bevy of starlets went with the night's trendy colors.

Blake Lively, Hayden Panettiere, Emmy winner Toni Collette, "Fringe" star Anna Torv and Debra Messing were just a few of the ladies who donned their best shades of red for the show. Some, like Messing, Panettiere and Collette, wore it well — most of all Collette, whose flouncy skirt floated as she went onstage to receive her award. But others, including Lively and Mila Kunis, wearing deep scarlet, appeared awkward in their gowns. Lively seemed uncomfortable baring so much skin, while Kunis looked like she was dressed more for Halloween than for the Emmys.

Lively's "Gossip Girl" co-star Leighton Meester hopped on the white trend of the night in her Roman-style gown, as did "Big Love" star Chloë Sevigny, who looked incredibly hip in her asymmetrical, polka-dot gown. But the winner in white had to be "Mad Men" star January Jones, who was stunning in a strapless, art deco gown.

Then again everyone from the "Mad Men" cast looked stylish, including Don Draper himself, Jon Hamm. Vampires Stephen Moyer and David Boreanaz were anything but sucky in their tuxes. Justin Timberlake, who was an Emmy winner (for his guest-starring work on "Saturday Night Live") as well as a presenter, rocked a tux, but with a white tie. And the night's host, Neil Patrick Harris, made the bold choice to wear a white tuxedo jacket with black pants.

Finally, props to Drew Barrymore in her ethereal blush-hued gown and Jennifer Love Hewitt in her sparkly, strapless butter-colored dress. They both stood out in a sea of red and white.
