Emmys: Red carpet madness

Christina_hendricksLotsa fun to be had out on the red carpet at the Nokia. Where else are you going to see moments like William Shatner apologizing to Glenn Close for stepping on the train of her dress? Melora Hardin and Tina Fey complimenting each other on their shows and predicting that each other’s would win the top comedy prize.

Plenty of actors seemed to come in character, like most of the “Mad Men” troupe. Couldn’t help but notice that Elisabeth Much Moss and Vincent Kartheiser came together — Elisabeth looking lovely in silver sequins.

Christina Hendricks (pictured left) could stop traffic — or more accurately, start traffic — in a gorgeous emerald green clingly thing with a drop-dead neckline. Even her jeweled strappy heels were gorgeous.

Didn’t get to see Jon Hamm or January Jones, but Bryan Batt (Salvatore), Michael Gladis (Paul) and Rich Sommer (Harrry) all came together, and in character it seemed (Gladis sported a silk polka dot scarf).

Most fun was running into Stephen Colbert, who was bragging about how he goes way back with Sarah Palin. “Sarah and I go way back together. We used to hunt together. She’s all truthiness.”

Most enlightening was running into Emilie de Ravin from “Lost.” “Claire’s not dead,” she said when I Brookeshields gave her my condolensces. She won’t be in the first few episodes of the fifth season, but “she’s not dead.” She said it twice so it must be true. Phew.

Brooke Shields (pictured right) is channeling Rita Hayworth tonight. She looked stunning with flowing curls and a maroon frilly dress. Va va voom.
