Stars of the small screen hit the red carpet for the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences’ performers peer group cocktail reception held at the Sheraton Hotel on Monday in Universal City, California.

The event was more like an LBD convention, with most of the leading ladies sticking to dark tones and few managing to stand out on this red carpet.

Sofia Vergara: The ‘Modern Family’ actress displayed her curves in a figure-hugging black-lace For Love & Lemon ‘Scarlet’ dress. The long-sleeve mini dress was styled with tights and black pumps. I couldn’t be more depressed viewing this look.

Julie Bowen: Sofia’s co-star also opted for a sombre look. Her black Christophe Josse Spring 2012 organza, tulle and lace ruffled frock was styled with black peep-toes.

Zooey Deschanel: Even though the ‘New Girl’ star also opted for black, her Dolce & Gabbana polka-dot dress with light ruffles had a playful vibe. Shimmering nude tights and black pumps completed the look.

Maya Rudolph: The actress wore a simple black short-sleeve dress. This look, including the grey pumps, is an almost identical look to the one she sported on ‘Jay Leno’ this week.

Amy Poehler The actress wore a Veronica Beard black scuba dress from the designers Fall 2012 collection.

Victoria Summer: The actress switches things up, somewhat, by teaming her LBD with nude accessories.

This has got to be the most boring red-carpet event of the year.
