With their array of ornate pastel coloured gowns, the leading lights of the red carpet beat out the brighter hues at Sunday night's Emmy Awards.
January Jones, Zooey Deschanel, Kerry Washington and Claire Danes led the way in a dazzling array of dresses, looking their glamorous bests as they stepped out at the Nokia Theatre in Downtown Los Angeles.
Man Man actress January looked pretty in a pale dusky pink Givenchy gown designed especially for her and wore her blonde hair in a curled vintage style fitting the star of the 1960s drama.
'They made this for me so I had to pick it,' January told E! about her frock, which featured an ornate lacy detail on the skirt. And the star seemed confident, that, even if Mad Men didn't win any awards, the cast would find plenty of time to party.
'We know how to celebrate pretty well even if we don't win,' she said.
Zooey Deschanel, meanwhile, plumped for an icy blue J Mendel creation with a thigh high split showing off her toned legs teamed with towering platform heels and a Chanel tourmaline cocktail ring.
Claire Danes meanwhile, looked striking in a ornate cream cloud-like backless Armani Prive dress, Neil Lane jewels and custom Christian Louboutin shoes, with her hair pinned up in a faux blonde bob.
The ever-stylish Kerry Washington, who was this week named the Best Dressed Woman in the world by People magazine, looked typically glamorous in an unusual cream, gold and white floaty Marchesa dress.
Many other stars opted for pale frocks, with Padma Lakshmi sporting a draped pale blue KaufmanFranco dress, while Malin Akerman arrived in a flouncy white strapless gown with her blonde hair pulled into a chic updo.
