The goddesses of the small screen entered the Shrine Auditorium at Sunday night’s 54th Annual Primetime Emmys looking as if they were channeling the ancient deities. But Aphrodite never went into syndication — nor did she wear four-inch stilettos.

Sarah Jessica Parker, just five weeks from her delivery date, was a no-show. Yet red-carpet watchers survived and even had plenty of new fashion stars to muse over at the awards, which — with the rainbow of satins, folds of chiffon, twinkle of diamonds and soft wavy hair — seemed like a counter-response to the somber business attire of last year’s telecast, canceled twice following the 9/11 attacks. Maybe it was all the press given the freshly renovated landmark, with its Moorish, circa-1926 design, that inspired the mythic glamour of old Hollywood. Either way, Best Actress winner Jennifer Aniston and her "Friends" cohort Courteney Cox Arquette took a chance on pretty, vintage-styled Christian Dior dresses in pale pink and blue, respectively, while Lisa Kudrow went for the real thing in a fuchsia, strapless Madame Grès from Decades.
