Pink & Red Colorblocked Dresses Were All Over The Emmys Purple Carpet
The Emmys 2019 red carpet was not red this year — it was purple! This allowed celebrities the opportunity to borrow the usual color and incorporate it into their fabulous ensembles instead (or at least that's the theory we're going with). Red and pink gowns and jumpsuits were all the rage at this year's awards show, proving that even though fall is basically here, you can still rock the bright and beautiful colors as boldly and loudly as you wish.
From nominee Mandy Moore, who wore a custom Brandon Maxwell gown, to Taraji P. Henson, who rocked a Vera Wang dress with a plunging neckline, we were all seeing red and pink. The combination was a popular one, seen on several actresses, but each color was also trendy on its own. Sandra Oh looked stunning in a punch pink, off-the-shoulder number while Joey King looked like an absolute Hollywood starlet in strapless auburn frock, both designed by Zac Posen.
Here is a roundup of all the celebrities who rocked the trend at the 2019 Emmys. We predict we'll all be seeing a lot of pink and red in the future. Just you wait.
Mandy Moore stunned in this Brandon Maxwell gown. Look at that slit!
Susan Kelechi Watson
Great co-stars think alike. Susan Kelechi Watson showed up in a similar pink and red colorblocked gown as Moore. Embarrassing? Hardly. "Always happy to be here and twinning with my girl, Susan Kelechi Watson," Moore wrote in a caption on Instagram.
Marisa Tomei showed a little shoulder and a lot of leg in this Ralph & Russo gown.
Taraji P. Henson
We see you, Taraji! She was born to wear this exquisite Vera Wang gown.
Another trend of the evening? Pink, poufy sleeves. Polanco rocked the biggest of them all.
Killing Eve fans were delighted to see Sandra Oh in this pink dress, which they suspected might have been a nod to an iconic style moment on the show. Fashionistas were even more delighted because of how beautiful the body-con Zac Posen gown was.

Catherine Zeta Jones
What's more dramatic and fabulous than a dress with a train and a slit? A dress with a train and a slit and a cape, says Catherine Zeta Jones.
