The red carpet at the 2014 Emmys was filled with a lot of surprises...both amazing and just downright strange.

Kerry Washington caught everyone's eye with her new ombre hairstyle and a fun orange dress featuring an extra high slit up the front, while Sofia Vergara outsmarted everyone's Emmy dress predictions by showing up in a white Roberto Cavalli gown with immaculate detailing in the front—and not a red gown.

But fear not, because plenty of other celebs got the "wear red" memo—among them Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting, January Jones and Lena Dunham, who showed up in a ruffled mixture of reds, pinks, and a few shades between.

Blue seemed to be the other popular choice of the night, as was seen on everyone from Keke Palmer, Orange Is the New Black's Kate Mulgrew and Mayim Bialik—who looked like she was headed to a historical costume convention in an outfit that we're convinced she borrowed from the set of The Tudors.

Other stars who sparkled bright on the red carpet included Hayden Panettiere, who was absolutely glowing as she rocked her baby bump in a floor-length shimmery stunner, Taylor Schilling and Laverne Cox, who looked every part that Greek goddess as her Marc Bouwer dress.
