The Emmy awards red carpet challenged the traditional ideals of Hollywood beauty on Sunday with diversity in race, body shape and sexual identity reinventing television's biggest runway.

That variety infused the fashion, making this year's red carpet one of the more eclectic in recent memory. Looks ranged from gowns in vibrant primary colors to more bohemian looks in glistening metallic hues, chosen from among the world's most famous designers and lesser-known talent.

The tuxedo also found a creative outlet on several men and women.

"The diversity is amazing," said Joyann King, executive editor of Harper's Bazaar.com "I love to see all the skin colors and shapes and sizes. It feels like we've come so far from the blond Barbie."

This season's carpet, King said, was "more variety, a range of ages in the woman walking the carpet, and a range of body shapes. It really feels like a celebration."

That meant "Orange is the New Black"'s Laverne Cox poured into a liquid silver gown, Lily Tomlin sported a classic black suit,

The California sun emerged just before the red carpet opened for television's top honors, making the metallics sparkle and the looks in vibrant emerald, daffodil and scarlet pop.

"This felt magical, fairy-like" said Zoe Kravitz ("Big Little Lies") of her Dior gown decorated with rainbow-colored ribbons.
