Undoubtedly, the HOTTEST color of the night was shades of Purple. Whatever you call it; Grape, Plum, Pomegranate or just plain purple, everyone seemed to be wearing the color on last night's 65th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards Red Carpet.
The main reason for this trend is really quite simple. Stylist were mainly pulling gowns from designer's Fall 2013 Collections. While several actresses were able to get dresses "hot off the runway" from last week's Spring 2014 Runway Shows, most (especially if you are a planner and pick your dress weeks in advance) wore dresses from the Fall 2013 Collections which were presented last February. In addition to shades of purple, Wine, Burgundy and Raspberry were colors that were added to the spectrum.
