The red carpet was on fire tonight (not just because of LA’s balmy temperature) with some style showcasing the hottest trends in evening wear. With stars like Modern Family’s Sophia Vegara, Mad Men’s Christina Hendricks and Project Runway’s Heidi Klum among the many celebrities making their grand entrances in some amazing pieces, we mere mortals get a chance to see what will be flying off of store shelves in 2013.
But the Emmys also gave a chance for celebrities to talk about causes near and dear to their hearts as did Modern Family’s Jesse Tyler Ferguson did with his charity Tie The Knot. Created with his new fiance, JustinNikita, Tie the Knot is a charity that champions the cause of Marriage Equality. Teaming with the Tie Bar, Jesse and Justin have created a line of limited edition bow ties (20 in total) to support the cause.
