2009 Emmy Awards Red Carpet: Ladies

Padma Lakshmi is a reality television siren in a flirty, figure-hugging purple dress accented with what I’m going to refer to as a red garnish on her hips. Stunning Ugly Betty star, Vanessa Williams, also opted for a brightly-colored ensemble and was gorgeous in turquoise.

House star, Olivia Wilde, is a vision in a sheer, white lace gown that flaunts her trim figure. Just as radiant is her co-star, Lisa Edelstein, whose midnight-blue and white frock really brings out her eyes.

It’s hard to tell whether or not Alyson Hannigan’s strapless, A-line number is a dark, dark blue, or black. One thing is for sure–it’s very flattering in the many layers, much like her hairstyle.

Looking angelic, with long, blond hair, Saving Grace star, Holly Hunter looks fabulous. Her critically-acclaimed series is one that sadly won’t be returning to TV for another season. Hmm, this seems to be a theme these days…
