Singing the blues: Emily Blunt, Claire Danes, and Minka Kelly

Great minds think alike!

While red also made a big impact at the 2011 Emmy Awards, an influx of intense midnight blue gowns lent the proceedings a more bewitching, unconventional edge. Behold, a rhapsody in blue ...

Charlie's Angel Minka Kelly looked sublime in a navy Dior dress boasting long sleeves and delicate tiers of lace detailing, while Emily Blunt's embroidered Elie Saab Fall 2011 Haute Couture stunner featured romantic sequin and tulle ruffles. 

Wearing Oscar de la Renta, Claire Danes had the most futuristic (and shiniest!) dress of the evening thanks to a bold, patchwork-style splash of electric blue sequin.

Also sticking with the color theme was Amy Poehler, who went the sequined route in short-sleeve Peter Som, Christine Baranski, opting for a Zac Posen silk faille gown, and Heather Morris, in a plunging, ruffle-happy Masai Payan dress.
