What the Daytime Emmys Red Carpet Looked Like 10 Years Ago

The brightest stars from soap operas and other daytime programming unite each year at the Daytime Emmy Awards.

With the 2019 awards show slated for Sunday night, we’re taking a look back at the red carpet fashion from the ceremony 10 years ago. Big-name stars such as Ellen DeGeneres, Tyra Banks and Lori Loughlin made their way out for the show, which was held at the Orpheum Theatre in Los Angeles.

A nominee for Outstanding Talk Show Host, DeGeneres hit the red carpet in a menswear-inspired ensemble: a button-down shirt, suspenders and shiny flat shoes. The comedian was accompanied by wife Portia de Rossi, who sported an off-the-shoulder navy dress with flat black sandals.

Meanwhile, Banks — who picked up a win for Outstanding Talk Show: Informative for “The Tyra Banks Show” —  looked stylish in an asymmetrical pink dress by Rachel Roy. For footwear, the “America’s Next Top Model” host went with pointy-toed nude pumps by Manolo Blahnik.

Elsewhere, Lori Loughlin turned heads in a salmon-colored, satin gown with crystal embellishment on the shoulder. The “Full House” star’s shoes were hidden underneath the dress’ train.
