Blue belles at the Emmy Awards! Padma Lakshmi, Jameela Jamil and Brittany Snow dazzle

The 71st Emmy Awards red carpet kicked off on Sunday outside the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles a bit earlier than expected this year.   

And Padma Lakshmi, Jameela Jamil, and Brittany Snow were belles in blue as they led the best dressed glamour.

From a light shade of sky blue to a pop of turquoise, the ladies took the red carpet by storm in complimentary shades of azure.   

Scroll down for list of nominations… 

The show has no host this year, but plenty of presenters will add star wattage including Kim Kardashian, Kendall Jenner and Kylie Jenner as well as Viola Davis, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Michael Douglas. 

Olivia Culpo of I Feel Pretty was among the first to hit the event in a dazzling ivory colored gown with tulle ruffles everywhere. Next came The Hills star Kristin Cavallari in a bright neon yellow dress that could not be missed. 

The 27-year-old brunette social media favorite Culpo showed off her toned legs and added pearl colored satin pumps.

She wore her hair up with a strand falling down over her face.

Culpo went heavy on the brown and black eye makeup for a dramatic effect and added pale pink lips.

Olivia is an American fashion influencer, reality television and social media personality, former beauty pageant title holder and actress. After winning the Miss Rhode Island USA competition, she went on to be crowned Miss USA, and then Miss Universe in 2012.
