Emmys 2012: Stars Sparkle on the Red Carpet (PHOTOS)

The Emmys used to be considered no more than an early precursor to the awards season style watch that starts in January. But times have changed. Now, the stars of the small screens bring the glitz and glamour to television's biggest night each and ever year.

Stepping out onto a sun-soaked red carpet, actresses like Christina HendricksJessica Paré, Kat Dennings, Emily VanCamp, Hayden Panettiere, Ginnifer Goodwin and many more managed to stun in their Sunday best - despite the scorching heat - as they made their way into the 64th Primetime Emmy Awards at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles.

What stars left tongues wagging?

Mad Men stars brought the house down in their fashion-forward looks. Paré wowed in a one-shoulder white number, Hendricks let it all hang out in a beige, belted Christian Siriano and Elizabeth Moss rocked a Dolce & Gabbana strapless gown.

Project Runway host Heidi Klum showed off her endless pins in a high-slit, powder-blue gown, and 2 Broke Girl's Kat Dennings put her cleavage on display in a dangerously low-cut, deep-red J. Mendel.

And other stars rocked red numbers, as well. Ginnifer Goodwin glammed in a bright-red lace applique dress while Cat Deely shone in a one-shoulder garnet gown.

Then there was Modern Family's Ariel Winter, who looked beyond her years in a hi-low multi-colored frock. Her young costars, Nolan Gould and Rico Rodriguez, looked dapper in their dark tuxes.

 

And all eyes were, of course, on the Mad Men ladies. January Jones made a statement in a Zac Posen gown, Elizabeth Moss — up for outstanding lead actress in a drama series — wowed in floral-printed strapless frock, and  the always-busty Christina Hendricks supported her designer pal Christian Siriano in a belted, beige dress.

The E! Fashion Police hosts brought their A game, as per usual. Kelly Osbourne was demure in a single-strapped, pale-purple gown, while Giuliana Rancic — who made her much-anticipated return to the Emmys red carpet after fighting back from breast cancer — stuck her leg out in a high-cut, black dress.

Stay tuned to Celebuzz for all the fashion from the red carpet. And later in the show, check back for the Emmys' best and worst dressed.

    Alright gents, I'll watch it since I respect your taste far more than real ciicrts or my douchebag friends who don't find the humor in piss pucks. Sorry for never watching Better Off Ted either, I haven't watched network (except NBC thurs) sitcoms since Steinfield refused to do a tenth season for 5 million an episode. Forgot Curb, love that as well. Pumped for new League, Archer and Sunny. Mercy there really is a huge void in comedy on tv if you think about it, where's Mr. Belvidere to save the day? Shit 80 s and 90 s sitcoms would crush todays vomit. /cynicism until my next post

    I love the whole mermaid feel it has going, but i feel the colour and the mermaid trim at the bottom slightly make her look like a frumpy pumpkin. IF ONLY IT WAS IN ANOTHER COLOUR!!

    I do love her gown, but i wish she had her hair up in a bun, it would have tied her look together alot better and would have helped keep up that high level of elegance going, but she still looks very lovely.

    I love this dress on her and the shade of the dress looks amazing and stands out against her fair skin. Flawless, just flawless! Kat is simply too gorgeous.

    Aww she looks really cute! it's very classy and high-elegance, very princess-like.

    It's a pretty dress but i'm not liking the random white sash, and Nancy looks overly tan. And tan and the colours of the dress combine, just look weird and they clash too much.
