Is it yellow, or is it green? Who cares, it's bold and beautiful. Even before the Academy presented Julie Bowen's with her Emmy for 'Modern Family,' her highlighter dress made her a winner in our book. Plus, the classic cut of this dress makes the bright color fun, rather than garish. {Getty Images}

It's no secret that I love Aaron Paul, so he probably would've ended up on this list if he wore a burlap sack. But luckily, he didn't, and his place in the Emmys' top 10 is warranted. Paul stood out in a gorgeous brown tux and bronze bow-tie amid the sea of black. {Getty Images}

Just stop. Stop being so perfect, Miss Teeth. 'Mad Men' breakout star Jessica Paré looked quite elegant in a classy white gown, but her bright make-up and classic hair (not to mention ballerina posture) are what truly make her look show-stopping. {Getty Images}

We're split in the Hollywood.com office on Edie Falco. I say she looks hot to trot (even if her bangs are a little busted), while others think she's dressing a little young for her age. Where do you stand? {Getty Images}
