From the Oscars to the Grammys, every awards bash spawns a red carpet trend. We don’t know if it’s freaky coincidence or whether the celeb stylists are in on it, but you can put money on at least four actresses rocking the same colour or style of frock. At last night’s Emmy Awards, blue was the hue of the moment, with Zooey Deschanel, Heidi Klum, Nicole Kidman and Michelle Dockery just a handful of starlets working varying shades. 

Reem Acra turned Zooey Deschanel into a modern day Cinderella by creating a custom-made sweetheart neckline gown of powder blue tulle. Nicole Kidman proved she’s way ahead of the fashion curve in an Antonio Berardi SS13 dress, which took to the runway just a week ago at London Fashion Week. Peacock-blue Christian Louboutin ‘Vampanodo’ sandals were the perfect addition to the embellished column gown.

Downton Abbey’s Michelle Dockery lead the British glamour pack, holding her own against the Hollywood heavyweights in a chic midnight Louis Vuitton dress and vampy red lips, while Heidi Klum brought the supermodel va va voom. The Project Runway star gave us serious body envy – can you believe she’s 40? – in a pin flashing sea-blue Alexandre Vauthier Couture floor sweeper and matching accessories.
