People's Choice Awards 2012: Red Carpet Brings Out The Brightest Stars! (PHOTOS)

Red, white, blue... and pink and yellow and green were all the colors of the night at the People's Choice Awards in Los Angeles on Wednesday. Although the dress code was ambiguous (outfits ranged from daytime skirt-and-top combos to sparkly evening gowns), celebrities all seemed to follow some unspoken rule to wear as many bright colors as possible.

And surprisingly, most of them looks pretty darn good. Kelly Osbourne picked a lovely, long orange-skirted dress; Chloe Moretz looked fashion-forward yet age-appropriate in a black and green Proezna Schouler dress; and Ginnifer Goodwin reminded us what a real style star she is in a neon pink Roksanda Ilincic frock with bell sleeves.

But then Emma Stone hit the red carpet and made everyone else look like amateurs. The starlet wore a trim Gucci jacket with black trim a gold chain across the front, a white blouse and narrow black trousers that fit like a glove.

Between the slick cut, inventive design and vivid color against her red hair, Stone hit it out of the park.

Check out all the celebs, from TV actresses to pageant queens, in their bright red carpet looks. Who had the best look of the night? Tell us in the comments!
