While our Best Dressed picks from the 2009 Emmys may not have taken home any gold statues last night, their first-rate style definitely stole the show. (See all the stunning dresses spotted on the Emmy red carpet in my new Emmy Lookbook.)
January Jones made a point of going for a modern Versace number to differentiate her style from her "Mad Men" character. Heidi Klum coordinated her Marchesa gown (custom made to accommodate her baby bump) to husband Seal's black tuxedo, while Christina Applegate chose an exotic deep blue dress by Lebanese designer Basil Soda.
Blake Lively in a down-to-there Versace number still managed to stand out from the matching red carpet. "Ugly Betty's" Vanessa Williams wore a flattering blue Rafael Cennamo gown, while Drew Barrymore (nominated for her part in HBO's "Grey Gardens" hit movie) floated down the red carpet in a dreamy peach chiffon Monique Lhuillier design.
