The 2013 Emmys Red Carpet Had Way Too Many Dangly Earrings

You guys. Are giant earrings back in? Because I can't. For the past few seasons, button earrings have been the trend, and I, for one, have not missed the big hoops nor the dangly chandeliers. There's something about them that just seem so inherently cheesy, even if they cost more than my house, and last night at the 2013 Emmys, the red carpet was overrun by enormous baubles pulling down the lobes of celebrities, and thus, our hearts. Looks like big earrings are back, so proceed through this gallery, and through this fall, with caution.

Looks like big earrings are back, so proceed through this gallery, and through this fall, with caution.

Constance Zimmer

The HBO star had an Entourage on her ears. Nailed it.

Padma Lakshmi

The Top Chef host wore enormous gold scallop-shell earrings a contestant fashioned during a Quick Fire challenge in her limo on the way over.

Melissa Rauch

The Big Bang Theory actress wore turquoise teardrop earrings, which is funny, because when Jim Parsons won, we found ourselves with turquoise teardrops, as well. 

Laura Dern

She didn't win for Enlightened, but her earrings were super long and sparkly, so there's that.

Jewel

If anyone can or should were giant earrings, it's Jewel. She's forgiven.

Allison Janney

Even if we're not that excited about her new show Moms or her choice of ear wear, we still love Allison Janney.

Amy Poehler

Orange earrings and a black dress? Hmm. It wasn't our favorite look, but maybe Amy's just showing some support for her favorite Netflix incarceration drama.  

Sofia Vergara

You'd be hard pressed to find Sofia without super-sized earrings, but these look like they weigh more than Lily Pritchett-Tucker.

Katrina Bowden

On 30 Rock, she makes fun of Liz Lemon's terrible outfits and old age, but in real life, Katrina could take some tips from Tina Fey, who killed it last night.

Brooke Burke

I think this the first time we've seen Brooke Burke look human.

Anna Gunn

The Breaking Bad star took home the trophy for Outstanding Supporting Actress and we're so thrilled, we'll ignore her acceptance of the giant earrings.

Sarah Hyland

Oh hai, Sarah. Almost didn't see you there behind those huge green things. 

Jane Krakowski

The fact that her earrings touch her back is almost as sad as the fact that she didn't take home the Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy. She was robbed, I say. Robbed!

Linda Cardellini

Linda's earrings are more Freaks and Geeks style than the Mad Men glamour we've come to love her for as of late, but her gorgeous hair makes up for those triangular distractions.
