TRENDY TWOSOMES CELEBRITY COUPLES ATTEND THE AWARDS.
Hollywood newlyweds Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt led a procession of glamorous couples down the red carpet at Sunday's 52nd annual Emmy Awards.
In the first big appearance since their July wedding, the couple looked relaxed as they played to the crowd. Aniston wore a long strapless peach gown, while Pitt was more casual in an open-neck beige shirt that revealed a black strap around his neck bearing the letters J-E-N.
Seasoned Hollywood couple Michael J. Fox and Tracy Pollan went for a touch of navy, but Fox, who took home an Emmy for Best Actor in a comedy series for ``Spin City,'' said as he held his wife's hand, ``I didn't dress up a lot because I never want to detract from her outfit,'' referring to her beaded column design by Carolina Herrera.
Also looking radiant were Debra Messing and husband Daniel Zelman, who expressed approval over his wife's orange strapless number by Vera Wang as they waved to the folks in the bleachers.
Sarah Jessica Parker walked the red carpet in a pale pink Oscar de la Renta ballerina-length gown with a shimmering feathered skirt. She was accompanied by her husband, actor Matthew Broderick.
And Jane Leeves said that for her husband, Marshall Coben, she picked out his Gucci tie to match her eggplant-colored gown, which showed off her nearly six-months-pregnant silhouette.
Just as exciting to follow was the dating game revealed on television's big night.
Geena Davis, whose new show premieres this fall on ABC, turned heads in a killer see-through gown by Pamela Dennis. The gown with a plunging neckline and fishtail was in a psychedelic print but in black, white and gray. On her arm was a stunner of a boyfriend, local surgeon Dr. Jarrahy Raza.
Also looking like lovers were Camryn Manheim in a striking gray flannel gown and stole by Ralph Lauren - yes, he's now doing large sizes - and beau Jeffrey Brezivar. He said he was from New York and didn't get out to L.A. much, but made a point of saying they'd been friends since '94.
David Schwimmer of ``Friends'' in a Zegna tuxedo, was with Mili Avital (``Arabian Nights''), who wore an elegant Oscar de la Renta chiffon gown. She said she had to show him several outfits before he gave a thumbs up on this one.
Those who attended solo but made their own news included Lucy Liu, who who wore a nude tulle gown with a tiny bit of green beading over strategic places, and Calista Flockhart, who looked her best ever in a fluttery red gown that should win the approval of fashion police on the skinny-girl beat.
Many stars showed their support of striking Screen Actors Guild commercial actors by pinning gold ribbons on their gowns and tuxedos.
