The stars pulled out all the stops for the 75th Annual Emmys red carpet, from jeweled feather gowns (we're looking at you, Issa Rae) to princess-inspired dresses. But as more celebrities arrived, we spotted not one, but two major color trends that dominated this year's red carpet. The top contenders? Red and black.

Since the color red also took center stage at the 2022 Emmy Awards, several stars kept the momentum going with their show-stopping ensembles, whether they were channeling their inner Jessica Rabbit or opting for ballroom-inspired dresses. Keep scrolling for some of our favorite looks in this year's most popular colors.
