Red and yellow and pink; THE EMMYS THE GLAMOUR AND THE GONGS.


THE stars did their best to outshine each other at the Emmy awards by wearing a dazzling array of the colours of the rainbow.

The red carpet at the 64th annual awards ceremony in Los Angeles on Sunday night featured celebrities from stage and screen in everything from brilliant oranges and bright reds to pale aquas, bold blues and glittering sequins.

Julianne Moore, Claire Danes and Leslie Mann all went for the brightest yellow shades - a look that's not for the faint-hearted. Here we take a look at the A-listers who stole the limelight on the night for all the right and all the wrong reasons - and give you the, ahem, bottom line on any wardrobe malfunctions.

Ginnifer Goodwin, 34 The Once Upon a Time star wore a Monique Lhuillier dress with orange Louboutin heels. Her bright frock teamed with short dark hair turned heads.

3/5 Jessica Lange,63 The American Horror Story winner looked amazing in an orange dress with a silver Jimmy Choo clutch and matching heels. But no matter how bright it is, sunglasses are a red carpet no-no.

3/5 Julianne Moore, 51 The dress was big and yellow and she's a redhead so nothing about this outfit should have worked but somehow it did. There's no doubt Julianne looked striking in this statement Dior Couture gown.

4/5 Claire Danes,33 It can be hard to find a red carpet gown that still looks good with a baby bump but Homeland star Claire managed it in this canary yellow strapless Lanvin resort 2013 dress.

4/5 Ashley Judd, 44 The actress made a hair-raising appearance on the red carpet, but not in a good way. Even without that hairdo, her pink Carolina Herrera gown looked more prom night than Emmys.

2/5 Joanne Froggatt,32 Downton Abbey's Joanne looked a million miles from the show's dowdy head housemaid Anna Bates in her Vivienne Westwood dress and Jimmy Choo heels.

4/5 Christina Hendricks,37 Never one to hide her curves, the Mad Men star was busting out of her Christian Siriano gown. But then again, when you've got an hourglass shape like that, why not flaunt it? 3/5 January Jones, 34 One of the few stars to choose black, the Mad Men actress went for a dramatic Zac Posen gown. But the gothic make-up and slicked-back hair didn't rock our world.

2/5 Zooey Deschanel,32 The New Girl star wore a fairytale-style baby blue Reem Acra dress that looked amazing against her porcelain complexion but the huge skirt might have been a little bit too Cinderella.

4/5 MichelleDockery, 30 Downton star Michelle looked every inch the lady of the manor in a demure blue satin Louis Vuitton gown with netting over her back and shoulders and bustle detailing.

5/5 Kelly Osbourne, 27 Not many people can get away with matching their dress to their hair but if anyone can it is going to be Kelly. Her fishtail one-shoulder Zac Posen frock made an impact.

4/5 Leslie Mann,40 The Knocked Up actress stood out in a two-tone Naeem Khan dress with an ornate floral halterneck top and a full marigold skirt, while her top-knot hair finished the look off.

3/5 Sofia Vergara,40 The Modern Family star may have regretted her decision to wear this show-stopping sequinned Zuhair Murad gown after it split across her bum just before her show won an award.

5/5 Nicole Kidman,45 Going for her trademark red carpet style, Nicole wore an Antonio Berardi gown with a sequin design. The dress is simple but could have done with being longer to cover her toes.

3/5 Julianna Margulies, 46 Most actresses avoid prints on the red carpet and looking at The Good Wife star's Giambattista Valli gown it's easy to see why. It could have been beautiful in just one colour.

3/5 Cat Deeley, 35 The British presenter of hit US show So You Think You Can Dance looked stunning in a dramatic red one-shoulder Tadashi Shoji gown with fitted bodice and fishtail hemline.

5/5 Heidi Klum, 39 Project Runway judge Heidi looked stunning in a low-cut floaty chiffon sea foam gown by Alexandre Vauthier. The daring thigh split showed off those amazing legs to the full.
