In addition to a plethora of pink gowns, this year's Emmy Awards was also awash with lots of bright reds and bold blues. Plenty of starlets dared to wear red despite running the risk of blending into the red carpet. Some of the celebs to get a little fiery included Lea Michele of Glee! who opted for a sophisticated Marchesa gown which was accentuated at the shoulders and draped at the back.

In the primary blue group was Katie Holmes, who chose a simple halter-style dress by Calvin Klein Collection. While another hot trend was supplied by the ladies who chose to add a little shine the occasion. This group comprised of Christina Hendricks (in Johanna Johansson), Claire Danes (in Oscar de la Renta) and Emily Blunt who shimmered in a plunging black Elie Saab Couture gown. Special kudos goes out to Kelly Osbourne, who wowed in an asymmetrical deep crimson dress designed by J Mendel. Divine!
