Runway trends arrive on Emmys red carpet

Kerry Washington is the fashion It Girl right now, and she has the straight-from-the-runway dress to prove it.

The "Scandal" star showed her style savvy at the Emmy Awards Sunday in fantasy gown in a blush color with gold embroidery that was at the Marchesa runway show just earlier this month.

"This was their final look, and the moment I saw it I asked them to send it to me," Washington said.

The Emmys red carpet stepped it up with modern catwalk trends, interesting colors and some risks. There were romantic lace overlays, graphic black-and-white combinations, strategic skin-baring slashes and tough-girl harnesses.

Claire Danes of "Homeland" wore a light, delicate champagne-colored gown by Armani Prive with a tulle bodice covered in barely-there sequins and a flared gown.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus — an early winner for best comedy actress in "Veep" — had on a much more straightforward metallic column by Monique Lhuillier.

January Jones, who normally goes ultra sleek to contrast her retro "Mad Men" character, did a more romantic turn in a dusty-rose lace gown by Givenchy.

Sofia Vergara wore the body-hugging gown and mermaid hem that's she's known for, but anything less than this sort of bright red Vera Wang gown and oversized emerald Lorraine Schwartz jewels would disappoint the crowd.

The "Modern Family" star also had a plug for her retail partner Kmart, saying she had on underwear from there. "But you can't see that unless you rip the dress."

Tina Fey wore a royal-blue gown by Narciso Rodriguez that had a very open neckline but otherwise had the designer's minimalist touch. Allison Williams wore a similar color. Her gown by Ralph Lauren, strapless and an utterly clean silhouette, showed confidence.
