Despite the intense LA sunshine on the red carpet at the 2010 Emmy Awards last night, many stars opted for black.

Kelly Osbourne looked outstanding wearing a Tony Ward Couture gown which made her look like a Gothic mermaid.

The gown draped elegantly at the back.

As much as I love this dress and Kelly’s new rockin bod, I don’t like her hair.

Heidi Klum gave us no surprises wearing a black Marchesa strapless tulle mini dress with rose embroidered sculpted bands.

Her look was paired with Christian Louboutin ‘Pigaglili Pot Purri Stras’ spiked heels and Lorraine Schwartz jewels.

Paula Abdul becomes the 100th person to don this Dolce & Gabbana strapless sequin gown on the red carpet.

Angela Kinsey looked breath-taking wearing a Romona Keveza black strapless gown with softly fluted skirt which highlights the delicately ruffled lace neckline.

Eva Longoria wore a Robert Rodriguez Black Label “chantilly rose lace” gown which is stunning on her, but it instantly reminded me of her Cannes Pucci gown for some reason.

Maybe it’s the pose.

She dazzled in Loren jewels and added a clutch.

Emmy winner Edie Falco was fully decked out in Bottega Veneta.

She wore a black silk chiffon gown, with black pave diamond earrings, a white gold diamond bracelet and black origami knot clutch.

Joan Allen looked sublimely elegant wearing a Michael Kors black one shoulder silk crepe jersey gown which she paired with a silver clutch and clear perspex cuff.
