Transcript for Emmys 2012 Red Carpet: Night's Top Looks
A red hot red carpet short-sleeved, no sleeves were a must. The heat index which followed was over 100 degrees. Hot as "gma" out here. Reporter: And, of course, no one shimmered like the ladies in sequins. Connie britton, amy poehler, carrie washington, all dazzling. Shiny watches and shoes, also covering the carpet. This year's red carpet was on fire, bright, dazzling colors. Top chef's and jennifer goodwin looked stunning in orange. Sofia vergara and jane levy turned the carpet blue. And emmy winner claire danes and julie bowen wowed out chartreuse. The popping colors of edie falco showed there's nothing like the classic. Understated but just as beautiful. And to talk more about the fashions, we're joined by -- the fashion dream team this year. Oh, boy. The creative director of "elle" maga, star of "all on the line" with joe zee, the man who helped me and you choose my dress, joe zee is in the house. Fashion editor in chief of "skinny" suze yalof schwartz. Talk about the red carpet. Nicole kidman. The emmy red carpet is new for her. She looked dynamite. She's so statuesque and tall, she looked great in that dress. I just thought it was fantastic in ice blue. And everybody was talking about the girls from "girls." Seeing her in that green oscar de la RENTA IT'S SO CHIC AND Elegant. She somehow made something so sophisticated look young and accessible. And fun, yeah. Let's talk to you. Sofia vergara. She heated up the red carpet, and for a 40-year-old woman to be the sexiest person at the entire event, that's pretty amazing, I have to say. Of course, julie bowen, i loved her dress. And it doesn't even bother me that paula patton wore it to the golden globes last year. But a little bit of a different color. It was tight, expected, and chic. I understand that you both loved zooey deschanel? I did. It was fun. She was coming backstage, we were supposed to do something live for the preshow, she barely made it. And in comes the fluff. What is that fabric on the bottom, josh? It's not -- a it's a belt -- a tool belt. Ding, ding, ding. Tulle. Can I make that it's laser cut, too. The powder blue with the white skin and black hair. She can pull it off. Who else did you like? I liked tina fey. I thought she looked so good in that vivian westwood dress. It was so tight, she never looked better. And we talked what about you might see, were you right? We were right. Body-conscious dresses and lace. What's with the color chartreuse? You can believe it, there was so much chartreuse, we saw it on julianne moore and claire danes, and julie bowen. That royal blue was another huge trend on the red carpet. I saw it all over the place. Jon hamm's girlfriend was wearing the same color, I kept standing next to her, hoping he would get confused. Did it work? No, it didn't work. I have to ask you, joe, who got it wrong? I always hate to go there, but it is what it is. I have to tell you, when I saw ashley judd, she looked like a bonbon. I thought it was a really pretty dress, it was not right with that hair. Maybe it just looked a little older than she is. She's a young, beautiful woman. Yeah, she say young beautiful woman. It felt a little too much. Glenn close. It's very hard to wear on camera because it makes you look larger. It's very busy, and she's gorgeous. But that dress definitely was not flattering. We thank you. I can't say I disagree. One dress I loved abeth. Youngs are fun. Young, fun, great. Men got shut out. It was still a shocker.
