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 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 sultry, sexy, and sizzling hot in the ruched one-shoulder mermaid gown that fully flaunted her curves:

Last but not least to grace the Emmys in red was Nina Dobrev. The Vampire Diaries heroine 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, five stunning ladies in red dresses were at the Emmys. Now, I will ask you: who do you think looked the finest? Personally, my vote goes to Nina (Dobrev). How about you, who’s your pick?
