Trending at the Emmys: Petal Pink Dresses

While it’s true that all the bright gowns on the Emmys red carpet Sunday night certainly turned our heads, it was a much subtler shade that ended up being the most-loved dress color of the evening. Call it petal, shell, blush or rose, this hue was worn by many of our favorite stars — including a few we couldn’t even fit in the photo!

From left, January Jones does her modern-Grace-Kelly thing in custom Givenchy; Cobie Smulders picks the perfect pale base for some seriously awesome hair in her fitted J. Mendel; Rose Byrne shows a slice of stomach in a Calvin Klein Collection design; Julie Bowen goes surprisingly girlie in a flouncy Zac Posen gown; and her TV daughter Ariel Winter selects a baby pink Lorena Sarbu number. Also in the pale shade but not pictured above: Carrie Preston, Alfre Woodard, Ireland Baldwin, Jewel … you get the picture.

And since dressing in gradations of carnation doesn’t exactly scream “sex kitten,” the actresses unsurprisingly kept things lovely and ladylike with retro-glam waves or soft updos, and chose coordinating shades of pale pink lipstick to complete the look.

Are you into last night’s hottest hue, or did you prefer the more colorful looks on the carpet?

This is definitely the best I’ve ever seen January Jones look!

I love the second and fourth ones. Very classic look and I like that it’s a subtle (yet not dull) shade of pink. I think January Jones’ looks a bit on the dull side.

I am absolutely in love with January Jones & Rose Byrnes dresses! They’re phenomenal!
