The Emmys have never been the most daring of red carpet events — something about the fact that it nominates the same actors repeatedly, rather than ushering a new batch each year seems to be echoed in the fashion mood. So, no, we weren’t too surprised by the lack of fashion-forward choices at the 2013 show. Instead, we’re taking this moment to recognize ladies like Tina Fey, Anna Gunn, Christina Hendricks, Taylor Schilling and Sofia Vergara, who chose perfectly flattering gowns for the night.
There were a few mild risk takers — Claire Danes with a plunging neckline and Kate Mara with a modern take on white lace. And we’re grateful for the token gentlemen on this list: Kit Harington and Jesse Tyler Ferguson, who added a touch of flair to the tux routine. Everyone seemed to choose to look good rather than make headlines. For our sake, we hope this doesn’t become a trend!
