NEW YORK (AP) — Taylor Schilling and her "Orange is the New Black" crew walked the Emmys red carpet Monday — Schilling dressed in a lighter-than-air, pale halter gown with subtle sparkle and fellow cast member Uzo Aduba in strapless red.

"I enjoy a nice non-color," Schilling joked on E! "It just felt sort of timeless."

Aduba has been having big fun in fashion since the Netflix show has grown popular, in contrast to her Crazy Eyes role, for which she won a Creative Arts Emmy earlier this month.

"I wanted something beautiful," she told The Associated Press of her custom Christian Siriano.

Laverne Cox, another of the show's co-stars, chatted on the carpet in a caped, white gown by one her favorite designers, Marc Bouwer. Fred Leighton diamonds were sewn into the dress that sported a chest-baring neckline.

Kit Harington of "Game of Thrones" represented early for the men, wearing a serious scowl like his character and sporting a top-knot.

Mixed with various shades of red (Julia Louis-Dreyfus in Carolina Herrera, Christina Hendricks in Marchesa) was a range of navy and other blues.
