Sparkles, chain straps and pants — yes, pants! — were the big trends at the Emmys Red Carpet this evening. Kerry Washington won the big capital F fashion prize, scoring a spangly silver Marc Jacobs frock straight off the runway (MJ showed it at his Fashion Week show just three days ago), though "Empire" star Taraji Henson absolutely slayed all with her sexy Alexander Wang number, glam makeup and Cleopatra hair (but, really, no surprise there). See our slideshow of the eight — because we couldn't pick just five — looks.
