Is Red the New Black? These Emmys Looks Say So!

Aug 26 2014 - 5:30am

There are colors and there are statement-making colors — and red has long established itself in the latter category, so really, was it any wonder it was such a popular choice for the Emmy Awards? It's hard to ignore its jaw-dropping powers, especially when it takes shape on the glamorous gowns we saw in this Hollywood crowd [1]. Together, style stars like Claire Danes [2], Julia Louis-Dreyfus [3], Mindy Kaling, and many, many more made a pretty convincing case for coral, ruby, and bright candy-apple colors, proving that it's eye-catching in just about every silhouette and on every complexion. Even if you're not hitting the red carpet, we highly recommend taking a style cue from this set. Just scroll on to see the stop-traffic trend in action.
