Tonight's Emmy Awards red carpet was a lesson in color theory: celebrities brought out their best brights (and in some cases, moody hues) and gave us all a bit of inspiration when it comes to party dressing. For those of you who were planning to play it safe and stash your vivid hues away for the Fall months, pay attention: stars like Claire Danes and Julianne Moore proved just how eye-catching a pop of citron can be, while Heidi Klum and Sofia Vergara showed us that a lovely seafoam or turquoise can be a welcome change from the season's deeper hues. And if you're wary of making waves in bold brights, you can always look to a classic Fall color like Bordeaux — as demonstrated by Jena Malone's Grecian-inspired J. Mendel gown. We've rounded up the three top color trends we spotted on the red carpet tonight and highlighted the stars that wore them well. Click through to see them now.
