Colour rules the Emmys red carpet

Colour ruled the Emmys red carpet last night (August 25), with shades of eye-popping scarlet leading the way.

Mad Men stars January Jones and Christina Hendricks both chose red gowns in two very different styles.

Take a look at our full gallery of the red carpet style here.

Jones went for a typically stylish frock in a strapless, voluminous-skirted Prabal Gurung number which had an asymmetrical hemline - showing off her black strappy heels to perfection.

Hendricks went for a more classic look in a Marchesa red satin one-shouldered gown which featured gold embellishments at the waist and a fishtail skirt.

Scandal's Kerry Washington was another fashion highlight in an orange and black sequinned strapless Prada number.

Game of Thrones star Natalie Dormer also opted for orange - this time in a figure-hugging two-tone orange and black gown with a fishtail skirt.
