Is Yellow the New Black?

Judging by the red carpet at the Emmys tonight, yellow must be the new black. Or at the very least a lucky color as several of the winners accepted their awards in bright shades of yellow.

A pregnant Claire Danes picked up a trophy for Best Actress in Showtime's Homeland in a strapless gown by Lanvin. Modern Family's Julie Bowen's blonde hair also complemented her Monique Lhullier gown (she won Best Actress in Comedy) while Julianne Moore's striking red hair was an interesting contrast to her yellow bodice fitting Christian Dior (she took home the Emmy for her role as Sarah Palin in Game Change). Leslie Mann went halfway with a Naheem Khan skirt.

Guess they took their cues from Emmy the Award who was also dressed in gold. At any rate, it was a refreshing change. Congrats to the winners and is it my imagination or do the Emmy guests look chicer than those at the Oscars?
