Best in Emmy Fashion: Desperate Housewives

Last night the red carpet swirled with canary yellows, beaded nudes, deep reds and eggplant purples at the 60th Annual Emmy Awards. Our favorite television stars kept it glamorously simple; shabby chic is so over. Oprah's fitted wine gown was stunning. Who designed that? We also liked Vanessa L. Williams' one-shoulder Kevan Hall and Julie Louis-Dreyfus' salmon Narcisco Rodriguez was demure. Chandra Wilson's black Tadashi Shoji was oh so figure flattering. However, we were most impressed with the look of the Desperate Housewives. Together they were a picture of classic looks with a contemporary spin. Eva Longoria Parker's bowed, crystal white, tiered Marchesa frock said shimmy with me! Felicity Huffman surprised us with a new severe bob and looked wonderful in a nude sleeveless gown by Reem Acra that clung well to her toned body. Great fit! And even better jeweled! Nicollette Sheridan and Teri Hatcher went strapless. But Sheridan's Angel Sanchez was classic, while Hatcher's tiered, yellow ruffled number was all sunshine, baby. And of course, Marcia Cross' blush Eli Saab with appliqued flowers was classic princess and absolutely Bree-like. What was your favorite outfit last night?
