Along with blues, shades of pale blush, rose, dove gray and nude were also popular on the Emmy red carpet Sunday, for better or worse.
"Veep" star Julia Louis-Dreyfus wore an all-over embroidered rose gold Monique Lhuillier column gown that shined like a pearl.
"Homeland" actress Claire Danes chose an ethereal nude tulle Armani Privé gown with a tulle bodice embroidered with sequins, and a full crinoline lace skirt accented with a woven horizontal ribbon motif.
Ever the risk taker, January Jones chose a nude lace Givenchy confection that unfortunately resembled a Band-Aid, especially since the fit was too tight across the bodice.
And forget the bra top trend -- Julianne Hough moved onto the brief, choosing a sheer gray lace off-the-shoulder gown by British designer Jenny Packham that left little to the imagination.
We’re guessing we won’t see Packham fan Kate Middleton wearing this one.
Also on board with the pale trend? Cobie Smulders in J. Mendel, Julie Bowen in Zac Posen and Kerry Washington in a blush tulle Marchesa gown with embroidered roses.
