One of our favorite new ways to “shop”—without opening our wallets—is by playing PopSugar‘s Facebook game, Retail Therapy; you can mix and match to make outfits and run your own virtual fashion boutique. And in addition to “stocking” labels like Banana Republic, Tory Burch and DVF, the game has just added several gowns from the 2010 Emmys: Two of our favorites, Sofia Vergara’s Carolina Herrera gown and Keri Russell’s vintage Jean Louis Scherrer Haute Couture dress, are already out, and they’ll release one new dress a day for the next week—we can’t wait to see which gowns hit the virtual “shelves” next!
After a long Emmys night of red carpet photos and press interviews, not to mention a little duet with host Jimmy Fallon, you’d think reality star Kim Kardashian would allow herself to sleep in. Not so! Just hours after the last after-party wound down the reality star tweeted: “Early morning Gunnar work out kicked my butt! No more excuses! I’ve officially made working out a necessity! U should 2.” So what does it take to maintain her famous figure? “Dedication and consistency. I never hear ‘I can’t’ from her,” her trainer Gunnar Peterson told us. “She’s very realistic about her body. She wants to stay in shape and meet the regular demands of her schedule.” Kardashian’s hour-long workout with Peterson post Emmys included lower body, core work and a lot of high-intensity fast-burst interval cardio. “She killed it!” said Peterson.

When Mariska Hargitay walked the red carpet at the Emmys last night, the Law & Order: SVU star was getting a little sentimental. “It was my wedding anniversary yesterday and I was feeling nostalgic,” Hargitay told us. So when it came down to choosing her gown, she went with a blush-colored silk faille Vera Wang. “It was inspired by my wedding dress. I wore a very, very similar color. I told them I wanted a dress that was very ’50s, retro and romantic.” She also paid homage to her nuptial hairstyle from her August 28, 2004 affair: The actress told her stylist, Chris McMillan that she wanted a “similar thing” to her bridal coiff (he styled her hair for her big day too). Check out all of her wedding details, then tell us: Do you think Hargitay’s Emmy style is similar to her wedding day?

Much like the gown trends we saw on the red carpet, many stars chose to paint their nails in rich fall hues, like dark navy blue and aubergine. Lea Michele had hers painted by celebrity nail guru Deborah Lippmann, who used a navy shade with a bright silver shimmer, Lady Sings the Blues, from Lippman’s eponymous line. January Jones, on the other hand, chose to contrast her bright electric blue gown with a dark aubergine hue. Lippmann also polished Jones’s nails with another shade from her collection, Dark Side of the Moon.
At last night’s Emmys, we caught up with a few Glee stars to get the inside dish on the highly-anticipated Britney Spears episode. “I can’t believe [creator] Ryan [Murphy] got her to do this! I’m so thankful! She’s so professional and so great to work with,” Outstanding Lead Actress nominee, Lea Michele (in Oscar de la Renta), told us. And as for Spears’ on-set persona? “Everyone makes her out to be a certain way, but she’s so down to earth, very cool, and she looks great,” says co-star Harry Shum of Spears (pictured here on-set with Heather Morris). “She’s so talented and so I’m excited what she’s brought to the table as far as the premiere.” Make sure to watch the premiere on Tuesday, September 21 at 8pm EST on Fox. Can’t wait till then? Check out a brand-new Season 2 promo pic after the jump!

After seeing all of the amazing fashion at the Emmys last night, we couldn’t help but wonder: Where do all of the gorgeous gowns go when the last after-party ends? Among the many that are returning gowns to the designers themselves (“I wish it would go back in my closet, but it’s going back to Marchesa,” said Kim Kardashian), a few have other plans. “It’s going in my closet for a while, I’ll take a peek at it every so often,” Christina Hendricks (left) dished to us about her lilac feathered Zac Posen gown. “If we have a daughter one day, she can grace the stage in it.” Other stars, like Sofia Vergara (right) and George Clooney (center), are taking a charitable approach, donating their gown and tux, respectively, to Clothes Off Our Back, a charity that auctions off celebrity clothes to benefit several children’s organizations. You can bid on Vergara’s gilded Carolina Herrera gown or Clooney’s classic Giorgio Armani tux now!

Claire Danes, for her title role in the HBO film Temple Grandin! At last night’s Emmys, a slew of old favorites—and a few new ones—took home the coveted statuettes. Winning Outstanding Drama Series was three-peater Mad Men, while newbie Modern Family took home the Emmy for Outstanding Comedy Series. Jane Lynch helped Glee‘s Emmy count rise to three, nabbing the award for Outstanding Supporting Actress thanks to her role as the scheming cheerleading coach Sue Sylvester, while Kyra Sedgwick won her first Emmy (after five consecutive nods) for her portrayal of Deputy Chief Brenda Johnson in The Closer. Edie Falco picked up another statue for her arsenal, but this time it was a comedy award for her role as the harsh, but lovable Nurse Jackie. To see the full list of winners, visit Emmys.com.
The 2010 Emmys kicked off with a Glee-inspired number that had us in side stitches. The sketch featured host Jimmy Fallon leading several members of the Glee cast along with stars like Betty White, Jon Hamm, Tina Fey, Nina Dobrev and Kate Gosselin in a rousing rendition of Bruce Springsteen’s “Born to Run.” Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy winner Jane Lynch joined in, tossing slushies in Fallon and Fey’s faces.
