By now, I’m sure all of you have seen pictures or watched a rerun of the Emmys (Emmy Awards) that took place last Sunday. What did you think of the dresses?

Fashion-wise, one thing was pretty clear – red dresses ruled on the red carpet that day. Yup, in case you failed to notice, a lot of the celebrities (and even some correspondents who covered the show) wore red to the event:

There was Kate Winslet, who arrived on the red carpet in a classic and elegantly cut gown from Elie Saab – one with a touch of risque to it via a deep plunging neckline that showcased her assets:

Kerry Washington on the other hand, was all glitzy and glamorous as she attended the event in a dramatic shimmering strapless that featured a sheer skirt and a paneled floor-grazing hem:

And then there was Lea Michele, who simply glowed in her back-baring, shoulder detailed Marchesa. With such a big smile on her face, it was easy to tell she felt fabulous in the dress:

And then, of course, there was Sofia Vergara, who was simply sultry, sexy, and sizzling hot in the ruched one-shoulder mermaid gown that fully flaunted her curves:

Last but not least to grace the Emmy’s in red was Nina Dobrev. The Vampire Diaries heroine simply looked ravishing in her sweetheart necklined, gore-detailed serpentine gown.

Everything about her that day was pure perfection – the hair, the make-up, the dress (of course), and the accessories – a solid 10:

As you can see, there were five stunning ladies in red dresses at the Emmys. Now here’s what I’m going to ask you, who do you think looked the finest? Personally, my vote goes to Nina (Dobrev). How about you, who’s your pick?
