It may have been a little hot for a picnic—but, for better or worse, the stars brought their sandwich condiments all the same.

Homeland's Claire DanesGame Change star Julianne Moore and Julie Bowen, all nominees tonight, went for French's Mustard-yellow on the Emmy Awards red carpet.

It's a tough color to wear, but at least the actresses who opted to indulge all have that fair skin and red/blond hair that make yellow a fashionable possibility.

Moore laid it on the thickest in a sleek, long-sleeved Christian Dior dress, while Danes' Lanvin gown let the expectant star's arms catch the afternoon sun. Bowen went for a strapless mermaid look by Monique Lhuillier.

Leslie Mann, who joked about grooming hubby Judd Apatow so he'd be red-carpet ready, cut the mustard (honey mustard, in her case) with a separate-looking-but-attached white lace halter top.

You be the judge: Rays of sunshine or just too much yellow?
