The 63rd Primetime Emmy Awards were held in Los Angeles last night, September 18, where some of television’s biggest stars came out in numbers to rub shoulders in honour of celebrating excellence in the 2011 season’s primetime programming.
While comedy series ‘Modern Family’ stole the show with 5 wins, including Best Comedy Series, the ‘who wore what?’ on the red carpet managed to gain just as much attention. It will appear red was the colour of the night, with Lea Michele, Kate Winslet, Sofia Vergara, Nina Dobrev and more opting to shine in red.
