NEW YORK -- Lena Dunham showed up for the Emmys in an awkward pink confection and Kerry Washington went for a bright orange dress with dark sparkle peeking out from underneath, but it was the reds and blues that dominated the carpet Monday.

And neutrals, too.

On Team Red were Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who looked a bit pinched in a tight Carolina Herrera, and Christina Hendricks in a gaudy, one-shoulder Marchesa with yards and yards of draping fabric, loud floral embroidery at the waist and a plunging neckline.

Julia Roberts, at 46, had fashion observers near speechless as she showed off her legs in a bubbly beaded mini in deep blue. Keke Palmer, of "The Trip to Bountiful," wowed in a blue cobalt trumpet-shaped gown from Rubin Singer. Layers of fabric skimmed the gown, and a structured strapless bodice was cut in a deep V.

Baby bumps represented. Hayden Panettiere (who announced it's a girl) lovingly stroked her belly in a metallic fitted gown. Amanda Peet, pregnant with her third child, was in an unfortunate, empire-waisted floral.

Washington bucked the color trend in fitted orange Prada with a high slit and beaded front pleats.

"I saw it hanging there and I knew it was a contender," she told The Associated Press. "I threw it on during a lunch break when I was shooting 'Scandal' and fell in love."

Sofia Vergara, always a red carpet stunner, went for a more classic look in a fitted white gown with a space agey bodice that showed less of her cleavage than usual.

Taylor Schilling and her "Orange is the New Black" crew walked early -- Schilling dressed in a lighter-than-air, pale halter gown with subtle sparkle and fellow cast member Uzo Aduba in strapless red.

"I enjoy a nice non-color," Schilling joked on E! "It just felt sort of timeless."

Aduba has been having big fun in fashion since the Netflix show has grown popular. Earlier this month, she won a Creative Arts Emmy for her role as Crazy Eyes.

"I wanted something beautiful," she told the AP of her custom Christian Siriano.

Laverne Cox, another of the show's co-stars, chatted on the carpet in a caped, white gown by one her favorite designers, Marc Bouwer. Fred Leighton diamonds were sewn into the dress that sported a chest-baring neckline.

Kit Harington of "Game of Thrones" represented early for the men, wearing a serious scowl like his character and sporting a top-knot.
