Emmy Awards red carpet trends seemed ripped from the runway on Sunday, with romantic lace overlays, graphic black-and-white combinations, strategic skin-baring slashes and tough-girl harnesses.
There were a few fashion risks among the early arrivals, including Zosia Mamet of "Girls" in a watercolor-print dress with a white bib front with black on the bustline by Honor, a new player on the celebrity circuit. Aubrey Plaza of "Parks and Recreation" wore a harness-top gown by Marios Schwab that featured black lace over a sand-colored gown.
But expect the established names to take the big credits, including Emilia Clarke of "Game of Thrones" in a chalk-blue gown with geometric leaf cutouts by Donna Karan Atelier, Claire Danes of "Homeland" in a champagne-colored beaded gown by Atelier Versace and Robin Wright of "House of Cards" in a black silk-cady gown by Ralph Lauren.
Wright's children — her dates for the night — were also expected to be in Lauren.
Heidi Klum turned up in a hard-edge halter gown by Versace that her date, "Project Runway" co-star Tim Gunn, described on E! as "pomegranate."
