She may have been wearing a burgundy dress, but that didn't stop Kyra Sedgwick from sporting bright fuchsia lipstick. Instead of going for a matchy-matchy look, Sedgwick opted for a playfully bright hue to accent the more serious tones of her dress.

With her hourglass figure and her vibrant red hair, it's easy to overlook Christina Hendricks's flawless skin. But while many of her peers hit the spray tan booth before hitting the red carpet, the Mad Men star kept things creamy white-and completely unforgettable.

Granted, Heidi Klum looks stunning without a stitch of makeup, but that doesn't mean she doesn't like a little help every now and again. For her Emmy's look, the star turned to faux lashes along both the top and bottom lashlines for sultry bedroom eyes.

Best Nail Polish

The beauty of putty colored nails, like Rose Byrne's, is that they'll go with just about anything. The grayish taupe-Chanel's Le Vernis Nail Colour in Khaki Rose-popped against her drapey white gown; the same shade would look equally as captivating with a pair of blue jeans.

Best Long Waves

When your hair is as shiny, long and healthy as Sofia Vergara's, why hide it in a stuffy updo? This lush wavy look, created by Sauve Professionals hairstylist Jenny Cho, showed off the Modern Family actress's subtle layers and sun-flecked brunet strands. "The bounce and body of the style made her entire look glamorously beautiful," said Cho.

Best New Bedhead

We're used to seeing January Jones in the formal, perfectly coiffed styles favored by Betty Draper-which is exactly why these undone waves, created by hairstylist Mark Townsend, made such an impression. "January told me she wanted something feminine but still tough and edgy," said Townsend. "The tapered length of the bob and the imperfect part give it just that vibe."

Rather than making headlines with her riotous curls, Keri Russell made a statement with a low, chunky bun topped off with an equally oversized, impossibly adorable white flower comb by Jennifer Behr. The style, created by hairstylist Jonathan Hanousek, was both playful and romantic at once.

Best Unexpected Updo

Updos don't have to be boring, and they don't have to follow the rules. Take, for instance, Anna Paquin's sculptural style that went back-not up. "All of my inspiration came from her Alexander McQueen dress," said Frederic Fekkai hairstylist Renato Campora, who created the sculpted French twist. "I wanted Anna's hair to reflect the same modernity and freshness that her dress embodied."

Back in the '90s, Julia Louis-Dreyfus won our hearts with her curly, half-up poufs. Now in 2010, and with a little help from hairstylist Oscar Blandi, The New Adventures of Old Christine star turned it out with a strict center-part and straight, shiny strands. "I wanted to create a hairstyle that had an effortless, chic quality so Julia would be comfortable all night," Blandi told us. "Both hair and dress created an elegance that made her shine. She looked magnificent."
