Fashion Week may be over, but celebrities and stylists aren’t lacking a reason to dress up. The 61st Annual Emmy Awards were Sunday night, kicking off awards season early and showcasing some flashy fashion and bright bling on the most beautiful people in the entertainment industry.

So who were the winners and losers, fashionably speaking?

Sandra Oh looked stunning in a gold Marchesa dress. She kept it simple in the form-fitting sheath, accessorizing with a gold tassel-style belt, and chose a cocktail ring in lieu of a necklace. Usually not considered among the best-dressed on the awards-show circuit, Oh earned high marks this year on Emmy’s night.

Jennifer Love Hewitt looked lovely in a lemon-colored gown by Max Azria. The sweetheart neckline and high-waisted pleated skirt brought out her best features, and she pulled off the color without looking tanorexic.

Debra Messing played up the glamorous side of the evening with a sparkly red one-shouldered gown by Michael Kors. The slinky piece wasn’t as revealing as the other asymmetric dresses of the evening, but its body-hugging silhouette showed that looking sexy doesn’t always mean showing skin.

Elizabeth Moss took advantage of the chance to wear 21st-century garb (even gorgeous period costume like her wardrobe on “Mad Men” gets old after a while). She donned a one-shouldered Reem Acra gown and statement-making necklace. Wrinkled skirt aside, she looked stunning.

Heidi Klum is obviously comfortable showing off her pregnant body; the model and host of “Project Runway” wore a form-fitting strapless Marchesa gown that showed off her belly. Being a supermodel, she looked amazing, nonetheless.

Olivia Wilde left very little to the imagination in a Marchesa gown that showed off, well, nearly everything. The backless dress, complete with sheer panels, was certainly romantic and feminine, if not a little revealing.

Mila Kunis missed the mark a bit in a Monique Lhullier dress that stopped just short of her ankles. The burgundy number, made of layered tulle, might have worked just fine if it was full-length, but the shorter hemline made the already-petite actress look much shorter.

Amy Poehler showed off her post-baby body in a mermaid-silhoutte Reem Acra gown. The form-fitting piece looked great on the new mom, and her choice to forego a necklace kept the look low-key.

The media has hounded Tina Fey over her awards-show wardrobe choices – she tends to stay on the safe side when it comes to choosing gowns. Though she stuck to black this year, her Gucci gown’s crisscross was a nice step outside the box.
