Classic camel hues also dominated the runways, showing copious amounts of outerwear and separates from Derek Lam, J.Crew, and Rachel Zoe, while olive green made its mark on a range of military-inspired looks from Jason Wu and Prabal Gurung.

Italian designers are known for their over-the-top designs, and in that regard, the Spring 2013 runways did not disappoint. For next season, high-shine sequins were out in full effect, covering everything from tops to pants. Whether you want a hint of sparkle with an embellished dress or want to invest in a high-impact piece — like an amazing sequined jacket — you're definitely going to want to get your hands on some sparkle for next Spring. See what we mean in this Milan Fashion Week trend report. On Allison McNamara: Topshop blazer, T+J Designs necklace.
Tonight's Emmy Awards red carpet was a lesson in color theory: celebrities brought out their best brights (and in some cases, moody hues) and gave us all a bit of inspiration when it comes to party dressing. For those of you who were planning to play it safe and stash your vivid hues away for the Fall months, pay attention: stars like Claire Danes and Julianne Moore proved just how eye-catching a pop of citron can be, while Heidi Klum and Sofia Vergara showed us that a lovely seafoam or turquoise can be a welcome change from the season's deeper hues. And if you're wary of making waves in bold brights, you can always look to a classic Fall color like Bordeaux — as demonstrated by Jena Malone's Grecian-inspired J. Mendel gown. We've rounded up the three top color trends we spotted on the red carpet tonight and highlighted the stars that wore them well. Click through to see them now.
