Dual-Tone Gowns Of Pink And Red Ruled The Emmys Carpet

NEW YORK (AP) — Did someone send a memo? Taraji P. Henson, Zoe Kazan, Susan Kelechi Watson, Mandy Moore and Marisa Tomei all showed up to the Emmys in two-tone looks of pink and red that stood out on the awards’ purple carpet.

The dual tones were the strongest trend among the women on Sunday night, where outfits from Zendaya, Gwendoline Christie and current red carpet darling Billy Porter also turned heads.

While it’s common to see many stars wearing a certain color, the combination of pink and red was particularly eye popping on the Emmys purple carpet.

“With many also showcasing ’80s hints of bold shoulders, it shows an emerging optimism on the red carpet and a willingness to have a little fun with fashion,” said Kerry Pieri, the fashion and features director for HarpersBazaar.com.
