Our Favorite Stars & Jewels at the 2006 Emmy Awards



Sarah Paulson

After de-glamming (and donning a famously unflattering wig) to play put-upon prosecutor Marcia Clark in The People v. O.J. Simpson, Sarah Paulson majorly amped up the glam factor for her winning moment. The entirely embellished cut-down-to-there Prada gown was just the start: Her geometric Wilfredo Rosado earrings were custom-made—and delivered before she hit the red carpet.

Ellie Kemper 

She didn’t win best actress for her wonderfully wacky turn in Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, but Kemper easily earned the most stylish award. Kimmy may be stuck in a fashion time warp (think Flashdance-esque sweatshirts), but Kemper’s look is totally of the moment: a sleek bob, yellow gold jewels, and a Jenny Packham gown in a bright sunflower shade—the night’s most popular color.
