All of this year's Emmy Awards have been handed out, and while some categories had repeat winners (yes, Modern Family still rules), there were a few big surprises. We're still kind of in shock that Damian Lewis won outstanding lead actor — not because he didn't deserve it, but because Bryan Cranston had never lost before. He wasn't the only lead actor to raise eyebrows; Jon Cryer's comedy win for Two and a Half Men was also unexpected. But maybe the biggest surprise wasn't a victory, but a loss, which is what Mad Men experienced across the board. The series lost all 17 categories it was nominated for — a record shutout. But which of these was the biggest surprise for you? Weigh in below.
Celebrities brought out the major glamour factor at last night's Emmy Awards, showing a bevy of looks ranging from utterly feminine to drop-dead sexy gowns. We narrowed it down to the top five contenders: Tina Fey stunned us in a gorgeous bordeaux gown by Vivienne Westwood, Kerry Washington shimmered in draped neck gown by the same designer, while Claire Danes radiated in a magnificent yet deceptively simple yellow gown by Lanvin. Emily VanCamp's diaphanous gray tulle confection by J. Mendel emoted the perfect ethereal quality, and Ginnifer Goodwin's orange embroidered Monique Lhuillier dress had obvious showstopper appeal. Five beautiful ladies in five beautiful looks — which one gets your best dressed vote?
Jesse Tyler Ferguson had plenty to celebrate last night with another consecutive win for Modern Family, but congratulations were also in order regarding his recent engagement to boyfriend Justin Mikita. We caught up with Jesse at the Fox Emmys afterparty in downtown LA, where he gave us the scoop on how they got engaged and why they wanted to keep it quiet. See what he says here, and you can get more coverage of the Emmys, and the afterparties, later today in our PopSugar Rush.
Jimmy Kimmel survived his first hosting gig at the Emmys, after a night that included Tracy Morgan pretending to be passed out, his own personal tribute from Josh Groban, and getting repeatedly punched in the face by TV's most famous women. I'm a big fan of Kimmel, but overall, I was a bit underwhelmed by him as a host. I applaud him for thinking outside the song-and-dance box, but his opening monologue lacked pizzazz.
Over the Summer, Kimmel had mentioned that he wanted to be a "present" Emmys host, and while he didn't exactly disappear, he didn't have me rolling in the aisles either. Maybe I set my expectations too high, but how did you feel about Kimmel as a host? Did he wow you?
The Spring 2013 blue eye shadow trend from the NYFW runways made its big red-carpet debut at the 2012 Emmy Awards. To translate this bright look for Fall, try a daring cobalt like January Jones, or opt for a more tame touch of turquoise, à la Leslie Mann and Nicole Kidman.
Get January's high-fashion look with Chanel D'Ombre Eye Shadow in Apparition ($36), a dark denim shade, applied from the lash line to the crease, adding an upswept stroke on the corners. Copy Leslie's turquoise accent with Lancôme Gel Eyeliner Dress-Up Teal ($25), followed by a coppery shimmer on the lid. And to achieve Nicole's chic and classy style, use a black liner on the upper lash line and sky-blue liner on the lower lash line, Chanel Waterproof Eyeliner in Jade ($30). It's clear for these leading ladies Spring has come early, and it's all about those baby blues . . . shadow shades, that is.

Exaggerated parts were all over the runway for Spring 2013, and last night they popped up on the Emmys red carpet. How did stars style their deep side parts? The possibilities seemed endless. Kerry Washington opted for a classic chignon with lots of volume. Hairstylist Kiyah Wright's secret for Kerry's voluminous style was to tease the hair at the root. Then, she added a few clip-in extensions backward before parting her hair to bump up the volume.
Zosia Mamet added serious drama to her side part with a sleek and stylish bun. The Girls star's bold brows and simple makeup added even more emphasis to her side-swept updo. Mad Men's Elisabeth Moss added a tousled curl to her recent pixie cut, which countered and softened the severity of her deep part. Stylist Cervando Maldonado used both Velcro rollers and a curling iron to accentuate the wave in her style. To protect Elisabeth's hair, Maldonado used Wella Professionals Thermal Image spray ($14) before curling. If you're a little worried about testing out this dramatic part, follow Elisabeth's lead and keep the rest of the hair soft. This statement-making part looks just as great for everyday wear as it does for a glamorous night on the red carpet.
Hollywood's hottest got glam at the 2012 Emmy Awards in LA last night, and in a sea of stunning ensembles, there was one hue that shined brighter than the rest. Citrus dresses lit up the red carpet — from strapless structured gowns to full skirt numbers, celebrities couldn't get enough of the bold color. Julie Bowen worked a strapless fishtail Lanvin gown with a sparkling Swarovski clutch, Claire Danes styled her effortless draped Lanvin dress with gold Barbara Bui sandals, while Julianne Moore went all out in a long-sleeve full skirt Christian Dior number and Fred Leighton jewels. This luminous hue is fitting any time of year and in any silhouette, so get inspired by these stylish stars and shop our favorite citrus dresses to work at your next big event.
