Emmy Fashion Spotlight: The Colors!

Spring was in the air at the 60th Annual Emmy Awards -- nevermind that today is officially the first day of fall -- as stars turned out in the brightest of hues for a delectable rainbow of eye candy.

Teri Hatcher (in Monique Lhuillier) and Mariska Hargitay (in Carolina Herrera) shone as bright as the sun in bright shades of yellow, while Brooke Shields certainly worked a 'pretty in pink' angle in a sweetheart Badgley Mischka. Holly Hunter went for a lilac Jenny Packham and our perennial fave Mary Louis Parker looked resplendant in a blue Roberto Cavalli. Rounding out the pack was Julia Louis Dreyfus, who sparkled up her coral Narciso Rodriguez with Tiffany’s Metro Diamond Bangles in yellow, white and rose gold and a pair of Tiffany's 6 carat glamtastic diamond studs.

Brooch the Subject
Even the greenest of fashion pupils would have been hard-pressed to miss one of the biggest trends of the night - the brooch. From Lauren Conrad (we really didn't want to mention her) to Melora Hardin (in Tadashi) many celebs opted to accent their looks with diamond and crystal brooches (see Shields above).
