Emmys 2013 Red Carpet Fashion PHOTOS; Trend of Black & White by Amy Poehler, Elizabeth Moss & More

Black and white were common colors on the red carpet at the 2013 Emmy Awards on Sunday.

Malin Akerman from Trophy Wife and Padma Lakshmi both stunned in all white gowns while Game of Thrones' Lena Headey wore a laced black dress with an eye-catching slit. Other actresses even mixed the two colors together, including Mad Men's Elisabeth Moss and Julianna Margulies from The Good Wife.

Choosing the perfect dress for the occasion isn't the simplest thing for these actresses to do. For example, Mad Men's Christina Hendricks likes to prep far before the special day.

"I think that I've become like one of those people who likes to be very, very prepared so I approach things much sooner," she told E! Online in August. "I like to know a little in advance."
