LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Bright rainbow hues and sleek silver showed up for the Emmy Awards red carpet on Sunday (Sept 17), as Hollywood's best and brightest took a twirl down television's top runway.

Crimson was the choice for a bevy of actresses, including Nicole Kidman, Heidi Klum and Edie Falco as well as Yvonne Strahovski (The Handmaid's Tale) and presenter Issa Rae in a one-shoulder Vera Wang.

Comedian Samantha Bee wore emerald satin, a ponytail-sporting Jane Fonda chose a dress in eye-popping fuchsia while Angela Sarafyan (Westworld) sported bright, sunny yellow.

"This felt magical, fairy-like," said Zoe Kravitz (Big Little Lies) of her Dior gown decorated with rainbow-coloured ribbons.

Sofia Vergara (Modern Family) wore a vampy white strapless gown from Los Angeles designer Mark Zunino, cooling herself with a little fan attached to an iPhone, as Felicity Huffman from American Crime entertained photographers, flipping around the long train on her blue lace dress.

 
 

Metallic silver was the choice for a host of stars, including the actresses of Orange Is The New Black - Laverne Cox and Uzo Aduba - and Anna Chlumsky (Veep).

Of course, elegant black is always a red carpet classic and was the choice of Susan Sarandon, Lily Tomlin and Judith Light.
