The stars were shining brightly at the 64th annual Primetime Emmy Awards today. TV's hottest actors and actresses hit up the award show's red carpet, and while we love ogling the dresses, we were also swooning over the cute couple moments. From recently-engaged Jesse Tyler Ferguson to long-time loves Jennifer Westfeldt and Jon Hamm, see the pairs showing PDA at the Emmys now!
David Babaii, hairstylist to the stars, was the man behind Nicole Kidman's super straight hairstyle at today's Emmy Awards. "When asked about a muse for a particular look, I can’t go past Nicole. She is in herself the inspiration for what has always been a classically beautiful style – the straight blow dry. It’s sleek, but never meek. Much like Nicole," David says of the simple look.

What a frock-fest the 2012 Emmys provided us with today! Between the slinky fish-tail silhouettes, acid-brights and vampy merlot hues, we were spoilt for choice when it came to head-turning looks on the red carpet. However, attention-getting alone isn't enough to make it to our best dressed list. The chicest celebrities looks came courtesy of unexpected prints, beautiful applique and sequin detailing, elegant silhouettes and sculptural flourishes. Our top four include Girls star Allison Williams who looked a little Ange-esque in an emerald Oscar de la Renta gown, Ginnifer Goodwin whose detailed Monique Lhuillier design left us without breath, Nicole Kidman who was super sleek in a sequin-strew Antonio Berardi sheath and last but not least, Juliana Margulies who worked a vintage-inspired look in a floral-printed couture Giambattista Valli gown. We've made this into a little gallery, so you can zoom in on all of the details before casting your vote for the Emmys best dressed. Click through then tell us in the comments who topped your list.
Today's Emmy Awards red carpet was a lesson in colour theory: celebrities brought out their best brights (and in some cases, moody hues) and gave us all a bit of inspiration when it comes to party dressing. For those of you who were planning to play it safe and stash your vivid hues away for a vacay, pay attention: stars like Claire Danes and Julianne Moore proved just how eye-catching a pop of citron can be, while Heidi Klum and Sofia Vergara showed us that a lovely seafoam or turquoise can be a welcome change from the season's deeper hues. And if you're weary of making waves in bold brights, you can always look to a classically vampy hue like bordeaux — as demonstrated by Jena Malone's Grecian-inspired J.Mendel gown, or be subtle in (50) shades of grey like Sarah Hyland and Christina Hendricks. We've rounded up the three top colour trends we spotted on the Emmys red carpet and highlighted the stars that wore them well. Click through to see them now.
The Primetime Emmys made for a big night in LA with plenty of small screen stars stepping out.

The fun continued inside when the show, hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, got underway with Aaron Paul, Claire Danes, Modern Family and Homeland, taking home big wins.

While it may not be a new trend, a fresh, sexier-than-ever batch of fishtail hems took the Emmys red carpet. Thus, proving (once again) that the mermaid silhouette is a perennial favourite with Hollywood's A-list set. Without delving into the obvious complications of this style (pray for a stair-less venue!), the flared finish certainly provides a kind of dramatic glamour that demands attention. It's flirty, feminine, and because of its asymmetrical cut, allows for the gown to hit at a body-hugging angle. Translation: let's just say, fishtail hems inevitably enhance every curve. Need proof? Sofia Vergara showed off her svelte figure in an embellished teal Zuhair Murad number, Allison Williams stunned in emerald green Oscar de la Renta, and Cat Deeley turned it out in a red Tadashi Shoji creation. The commonality here being these starlets' shared penchant for the fishtail hem. See more inside . . .
While nearly nude nails win the award for favourite celebrity manicure colour at the 2012 Emmys, there were a few deeper, edgier shades thrown into the mix. And then there was nail art loyalist Zooey Deschanel, who shook things up with a Emmy-themed manicure. See the top 10 nail looks from the red carpet in greater detail.
Breaking Bad's Aaron Paul said he was out of his mind after winning the Emmy for outstanding supporting actor in a drama. The engaged actor spoke with us backstage about the honour, how his fiancée was the first and last person he saw from onstage, and what he hopes happens to his character Jesse before the series comes to an end.
Today, we celebrate our favourite stars on TV at the 2012 Primetime Emmy Awards!

Stand outs included Sofia Vergara in mermaid-esque Zuhair Murad fish-tailed gown, a pregnant Claire Danes who shone in a sunshine-y Lanvin sheath, Heidi Klum who showed off her killer pins in a slit-to-there dress by Parisienne designer Alexandre Vauthier, not to mention Ginnifer Goodwin's vintage-inspired Monique Lhuillier number. Done with our red carpet polls? Your next move is to step this way and remind yourself who-wore-what. . .
Homeland and Modern Family were the big winners at this year's Emmys! Jimmy Kimmel hosted the show, opening with a cute monologue that boasted tons of stars like Zooey Deschanel, Mindy Kaling and Lena Dunham (just to name a few). As the show went on, we were treated to Josh Groban covering One Direction, Breaking Bad getting the old-timey treatment, and Aziz Ansari showing off an impressive British accent.
As for the winners, Julie Bowen, Eric Stonestreet and Aaron Paul all added second trophies to their cases, while Damian Lewis was among the first-time winners. One of the biggest shocks of the night was that Mad Men was completely shut out for the first time ever, and Bryan Cranston lost out in the outstanding lead actor in a drama series category for the first time ever.
