Emmy Rossum is pretty in pink, Kerry Washington has us coveting her legs, and Naomi Watts is a vision in white. Here are the red carpet looks we couldn't get enough of this week.

Emmy Rossum at the 17th Costume Designers Guild Awards: The Shameless star flaunted her enviable physique in a sharp fit-to-flare gown. A sleek chignon, full brows, rosy lips, and chandelier earrings were the perfect complement to her Donna Karan Atelier confection: a svelte blush number with a sexy deep V that proved to be effortless for Emmy. If you've just started dress shopping, make sure to bring a picture of this look along.

Kerry Washington at the Saturday Night Live 40th Anniversary Celebration: Looking for a modern ensemble to wear to your engagement party or rehearsal dinner? Kerry's latest look is pure perfection for both. The Adam Lippes tuxedo-inspired dress and lace cap-toe Jimmy Choo pumps came together exquisitely, and the hint of her bra peeking out added a sultry flair. The loose waves solidified this look as sexy — this outfit is bound to keep all eyes on the bride.

Naomi Watts at the 17th Costume Designers Guild Awards: This Academy Award-nominated actress showed that wedding gown doesn't jus have to be structured or princess-inspired.The soft and flowing Altuzarra silhouette she slipped on was a splendid example of bridal gone breezy, with a fitted bust and tiered bottom fit for a bohemian bride. We love that her hair and makeup were pared-down — it looked so refreshing and natural. If you're planning an end of summer or beach wedding, you'd be wise to take note of this look.
