Curls just wanna have fun in the sun!
Fall officially began a few days ago, but no one told the red carpet arrivals at the 2013 Emmy Awards. Loose beachy hair waves and summer-like highlights made a big splash.
Sofia Vergara stood out as one of the night's hottest looks. She floated down the red carpet in a custom crimson Vera Wang mermaid gown accessorized with hair-down-to-there, cascading curls.
Endless summer style statements also included heavy highlights. Vergara sported fierce golden strands, while Rose Byrne turned heads with her new light locks. In addition, Anna Chlumsky, Taylor Schilling and Kaley Cuoco took the plunge with bold blonde ribbons.
