The 2009 Emmys were all about bold: color and accessories were positively eye-popping on the red carpet.
The carpet wasn’t the only thing that was red: it was by far the night’s most popular gown color. Red looked smashing on starlets young (Hayden Panettiere, Blake Lively) and aging gracefully (Sigourney Weaver, left). Red also was the most popular lip color, whether it matched a dress perfectly or provided a pop to a gown of another hue.
Second runner-up in the color popularity contest: white. Kim Kardashian, January Jones and Olivia Wilde (right) were just a few of the celebs who wore
the crisp, clean shade to the Emmys. Olivia Wilde kept the accessories simple with her lacy cutout dress, wearing a single strand diamond bracelet and delicate drop earrings. Get the look of Olivia Wilde’s understated elegance with Holsted Jewelers’ Her Majesty’s Platinum Over Sterling Bracelet, which features more than 31 karats of glittering cubic zirconia.
Nearly every star rocked a bold ring on her finger: whether it was Christina Applegate’s oversized sapphire, Drew Barrymore’s outrageous pearl, or Sandra
Cuff bracelets continued to be the wrist adornment of choice for stars like Leighton Meester and Kate Walsh (left,in a Stephen Russell Contemporary Collection diamond and 18kt yellow gold and platinum cuff).

Brooches were an eye-catching addition to some celebs’ gowns: Chloe Sevigny (right) wore a lion’s head at her waist, while Lindsay Price’s shoulder was adorned with
a cross brooch that looked fit for royalty.
