2012 Emmys Bring Color to the Carpet

The Emmy Awards kicked off our favorite time of the year last night – Red Carpet Season – and a colorful kick off it was!  Everything from Tangerine to Sea Foam Green dominated the carpet and though many of the gowns were simple silhouettes or classic cuts, they certainly did not disappoint and the hues made a statement all their own.  We were definitely partial to the Citrus tones, namely an adorably preggers Claire Danes (who else can’t wait for the new season of Homeland?) in Lemon Lanvin and a stunning Julie Bowen in our very favorite, Ms. Monique Lhuillier.  Check out some highlights below and let us know who your favorite was!
