Emmy Awards: The Best Looks (And How to Get Them)

This season, the Emmys were all about color. From Kate Winslet in Elie Saab's tomato red to Kristen Wigg in Zac Posen's copper, the carpet was a true rainbow. (And when guests did wear black or white, they embellished these standards with plenty of paillettes, or, in Gwyneth Paltrow's case, a bare midriff.) Click through to see some of the best styles of the evening and how you can get the look without spending a fortune.


Trend: True Red

Seen on: Kate Winslet in Elie Saab, Lea Michele in Marchesa, Kerry Washington in Zuhair Murad, Nina Dobrev in Donna Karan‎

Snag the Style: Calvin Klein's sleeveless gown ($149, Zappos.com) will give you the same look, sans the hefty price tag.

Trend: Coral

Seen on: Sofia Vergara in Vera Wang, Sarah Hyland in Christian Siriano

Snag the Style: These two Modern Family stars both opted for one-shoulder coral numbers. We're inspired by this universally flattering color. For a similar look in a much more casual fabric, consider MM Couture's asymmetrical knit dress ($68, RevolveClothing.com).

Trend: Royal Blue

Seen on: Dianna Agron in Roksanda Ilincic, Katie Holmes in Calvin Klein, Claire Danes in Oscar de la Renta

Snag the Style: Royal blue seems to be catching on and each star wore it differently. Foley and Corinna's cool but offbeat style is a great way to experiment with this bold hue. ($120, FoleyandCorinna.com.)

Trend: Copper

Seen on: Padma Lakshmi in Armani Prive and Kristen Wiig in Zac Posen

Snag the Style: Copper may feel like a difficult color to pull off, but as these two prove, it can work on pretty much any skin tone—just make sure that it's the right shade for you. We love ADAM's halter dress in tech satin ($195, Adam.com).

Trend: Embellished Black

Seen on: Gwyneth Paltrow in Pucci, Evan Rachel Wood in Elie Saab

Snag the Style: Those who aimed for something starker this season did it with a bit of pizzazz. Paltrow showed off her toned abs while Wood went with full-on Hollywood glamor. Jazz up basic black with a few accoutrements: This lace sleeveless dress from American Apparel is a good start. ($52, AmericanApparel.com.)

Trend: Pink...and Red!

Snag the Style: Our Idiot Brother costars Jones and Deschanel may have both opted for dusty pink, but the latter topped hers off with a red bow, a color combo we've been seeing plenty of on the runway. Get the look with Kate Spade New York's Bardot sweater dress. ($355, KateSpade.com.)
