Appearing at her first award show since her breast-cancer diagnosis and treatment this summer, Christina Applegate took to the Emmy red carpet Sunday night and declared, "It's a great day ... I've got a pretty dress on and lipstick, and [it's] something I haven't done in two months."
Speaking to E! host Ryan Seacrest, the Samantha Who? star, 36 - in a Reem Acra silk organza, jacquard-draped gown - said, "It really feels good to be here ... That's what life's all about."
Addressing what she's been through (which includes a double mastectomy), Applegate said, "Things happen, and you have to sit back and really, really embrace your life."
