Awards show season officially kicked into full gear tonight with some of the biggest names on the small screen and big screen for that matter descending upon the Kodak Theater in Hollywood to celebrate this past year's in television programming. As always, the first stop for nominees like Claire Danes, Julianne Moore, Julie Bowen, Sofia Vergara and many more was the red carpet. This year's carpet was filled with out of the box and shocking colors, gorgeous silhouettes as well as surprising hits and misses. Yellow was the color of the night and apparently carried a bit of luck as well since both Claire Danes and Julie Bowen sported this hue and took home the statues in their categories. Other trends included feminine, frothy looks courtesy of the New Girl's Zooey Deschanel and Amanda Peet who embraced their girly sides. The most popular cut and draping of the night went to the Grecian/Goddess look - Two Broke Girl's Kat Dennings, Modern Family's Sarah Hyland, Nashville's Hayden Panettiere and Revenge's Emily VanCamp were just a few of those sporting this trend. A spill-over from the summer season, the high-low hemline continues to prove it's staying power on the red carpet. Modern Family's Ariel Winter and Mad Men's January Jones and Elizabeth Moss all sported this look. Now that you're caught up on what to expect, click here for a full breakdown of the night's biggest trends plus the hits and unfortunate misses.
