Television’s leading ladies certainly didn’t disappoint on the Emmys red carpet—especially when it came to their gorgeous hair and makeup. Much like the pros predicted, neutral palettes were a popular choice for stars like Julia Roberts and Kerry Washington, who kept the focus on her smoky eye with nude lips and cheeks—even Gwen Stefani gave her signature red lip a night off and opted for a pale pink.
