LOS ANGELES - Television's top stars strutted their stuff on the Emmys red carpet Sunday, showing plenty of skin on a sunny afternoon in Los Angeles, with strapless and sleeveless gowns a must.

Small-screen siren Christina Hendricks, nominated for best supporting actress in a drama for her work on "Mad Men," wore a low-cut black Christian Siriano gown with lace straps and accents, her red tresses in soft waves.

"It reminded me of a Sargent painting," she said during the red carpet pre-show, referring to the American painter John Singer Sargent.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who won the best comedy actress Emmy last year for "Veep" and is nominated again this year, glittered in a pale textured Monique Lhuillier column gown.

"Homeland" star Claire Danes, last year's winner for best actress in a drama, donned a sequined nude Armani gown with the thinnest of spaghetti straps, her hair in a platinum blonde bob style.

German supermodel Heidi Klum - an Emmy winner for best reality show host for "Project Runway," a prize handed out ahead of Sunday's main ceremony - glammed it up in a form-fitting, shimmering burgundy Versace halter gown.

Klum was not the only star who chose bold color for the 65th annual primetime Emmys awards show at the Nokia Theatre.

Tina Fey, a nominee for the best comedy actress prize for the final season of "30 Rock," opted for a low-cut cobalt blue gown, which she said was custom-made for her by Narciso Rodriguez.
