The color yellow didn’t do too well on the Emmys carpet, but how did its citrus counterpart, orange, fare? Not too good, either, sadly. There were a few exceptions, though. Ginnifer Goodwin and Padma Lakshmi‘s gorgeous tangerine gowns — both by Monique Lhuillier — landed them on the best-dressed list for the night. Cat Deely worked it in a one-shouldered dramatic gown that looked like it may have been a Monique number as well. But that’s as far as the awesome orange went. A few came close. Nancy O’Dell‘s two-toned gown may have worked had it not been for that stip of cream shoulder strap and her distracting earrings. Gretchen Mol‘s gown started okay at the top but draped listlessly on her body. Her orange bag and heels made the whole thing too matchy-matchy as well. Jessica Lange — how we love you. We just wish your gown fit better! Have a look — along with all the other orange gowns — in our gallery below.
