See what happened on the 2008 Emmy Awards red carpet.
Following fashion's recent infatuation with jewel tones, Emmy fashion on the red carpet at the 59th Primetime Emmy Awards was popping with color.
The gemstone hues ranged from bright blue on America Ferrera
to purple on Julia Louis-Dreyfus
(in Narcisco Rodriguez). Minnie Driver
wore yellow Donna Karan and Felicity Huffman wore fuchsia David Meister gown. Red was also a strong color this year and looked best on Heidi Klum
in a smashing Dior and her own diamonds.
was one of the few actresses in a short dress, hers a smashing silver paillette style from Kaufman Franco. Kate Walsh
went all red -- hair, dress, nails and lips -- in a Pamela Dennis dress and Rebecca Romijn
wore a pale pink vintage Guy Laroche gown.
Vanessa Williams (four kids!) pulled off a quirky mint feather dress from Kevan Hall while new mom (twins!) Marcia Cross looked extra svelte in her lightly beaded ivory dress with turquoise drop earrings. Another new mom Jaime Pressly
wore a beaded St. John beaded dress.
Although basic black is a perennial fave, it was white that really stood out against a sea of brights. Katherine Heigl,
who almost always looks amazing, carried off a strapless Zac Posen dress. Judith Light
and Lisa Rinna
also looked great in a strapless white gown.

- Oversized rings
- Red lips
- Bare looks, especially cleavage
There's Always Next Time...
Teen cutie Hayden Panettiere
looked overwhelmed by her voluminous Marc Bouwer gown. And Jenna Fischer's
bowed dress? Maybe not her best look. But the worst look of the evening went to Ellen Pompeo
who ruined a perfectly good black Michael Kors gown with a teased bouffant.
