Bold moves on Emmy red carpet

There were no shrinking violets on the Emmy Awards red carpet, with stars wearing bold red - from Lea Michele's dress to Christina Hendricks' lips - as well as strapless necklines and more than a little bit of glitter.

The early buzz was about Glee star Lea's sophisticated Marchesa dress. She had the look of a seasoned star instead of starlet. She wore a plain-front, low draped back with rosette sleeves that really let her work the crowd.

She gave fans lined outside the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles a big wink.

There was some high fashion, too, including Julianna Margulies in a strapless Giorgio Armani Prive gown, with a stiff crescent-shaped bustier and embellished with clear oval stones and shimmery paillettes.

Gwyneth Paltrow, in a black-sequin number by Emilio Pucci, also has the presence to pull off the belly baring look she was sporting, but the jury's still out on whether it was too see-through. She said she didn't realise just how sheer it was until she got there.

Red was the hot colour, on Kate Winslet in her cap-sleeve Elie Saab, and on Nina Dobrev in Donna Karan and Sofia Vergara in Vera Wang.

But the electric blue that emerged as a runway trend for spring just last week in New York was well represented at the Emmys. Claire Danes wore a fully beaded strapless gown in bright blue by Oscar de la Renta; Dianna Agron in a Roksanda Ilincic; and Amy Poehler in a T-shirt-style iridescent dress by Peter Som.

Two Mad Men sirens opted for sexy, beaded, head-turning looks, with Elisabeth Moss in a second-skin Marchesa and Christina Hendricks in a Johanna Johannsson with an open V-neck.

In your public life, you feel like you always have to explain yourself to colleagues. This becomes incredibly draining. To add insult to injury, you've had difficulty finding an appropriate job for your level of expertise. Instead of holding out for the perfect opportunity, you should take a low level job that yields regular pay.More
