Blue was the colour of choice at this year's Emmy Awards.

Many female stars at the prestigious event in Los Angeles last night (23.09.12) opted for the shade, with 'Modern Family' star Sofia Vergara leading the way in a glamorous aqua-coloured Zuhair Murad dress, which highlighted her stunning curves.

Heidi Klum and Nicole Kidman also opted for different shades of blue, with Heidi going for a low-cut Alexandre Vauthier frock, complete with a thigh-high split, while Nicole looked stunning in a blue-and-white Antonio Berardi gown.

Hayden Panettiere, Julianne Hough, Zooey Deschanel and Michelle Dockery also dazzled in blue with all of them opting for floor-length numbers.

While blue was a popular choice, not everyone opted for it.

Pregnant star Claire Danes - who when Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series - looked stunning in a yellow Lanvin creation while 'Modern Family' actress Julie Bowen also went for yellow in a floor-length Monique Lhuillier gown.

TV presenter Cat Deeley wowed in a beautiful red Tadashi Shoji dress, while new mother Giuliana Rancic went for a simple black Romona Keveza number.

Christina Hendricks showed off her curves in a silver Christian Siriano gown, while fellow 'Mad Men' star Jessica Pare executed old school glamour with red lips and diamond earrings in her white Jason Wu dress.
