Brave Christina Applegate dazzles on the Emmys' red carpet

Christina Applegate bounced back from her recent breast cancer battle to grace the red carpet of the Primetime Emmys Awards in Los Angeles last night.

The 36-year-old actress looked dazzling in a one-shouldered, sky blue Reem Acra gown as she arrived at the Nokia Theater in Hollywood.

Just a month after she had announced she had beaten breast cancer after undergoing a double mastectomy, Applegate showed she was fighting fit and back in action.

Grecian goddess: Christina Applegate bounced back from her recent health problems to look stunning in a blue and gold gown at the Primetime Emmy Awards in Los Angeles last night

Speaking on the red carpet, she told reporters: 'Things happen, and you have to really, really embrace your life. 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... Things happen, and you have to sit back and really, really embrace your life.

'For me to have a voice and be the voice of a 30-something-year-old girl going through this and dispelling the misnomers that it's an older woman's disease is a big part of this for me.'

Applegate was nominated for Outstanding Lead Actress In A Comedy Series, but lost out to 30 Rock star Tina Fey, who also took home a writing gong for the same series.

British stars only managed two wins last night - Dame Eileen Atkins was named Outstanding Supporting Actress In A Miniseries Or A Movie for the BBC drama Cranford, adapted from Elizabeth Gaskell's classic novel, while Tom Wilkinson took home the male equivalent for his portrayal of America's founding father Benjamin Franklin in John Adams.

John Adams also secured an Emmy trophy for Tom Hanks, who picked up Outstanding Series as an executive producer, and Laura Linney, for Outstanding Lead Actress In A MiniSeries Of Movie.

One of Britain's big hopes last night, Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant went home empty-handed, despite being nominated in three categories for Extras: The Series Finale.

Sunday's Emmys turned out to be a big night for U.S. comedy 30 Rock, with Fey taking home two awards and Alec Baldwin winning Outstanding Lead Actor In A Comedy Series.

Meanwhile, Glenn Close was also honoured with an Outstanding Lead Actress In A Drama Series accolade for Damages.

Close paid tribute to her fellow category nominees, Sally Field, Mariska Hargitay, Holly Hunter and Kyra Sedgwick, as well as Dame Judi Dench and Helen Mirren, saying: 'We're proving that complicated, powerful, mature women are sexy, high entertainment and can carry a show.'

Despite not being nominated in any acting categories this year, the cast of Desperate Housewives were definitely winners in the fashion stakes... at least most of them.

Marcia Cross, Teri Hatcher and Nicollette Sheridan went for colourful strapless gowns, while Felicity Huffman opted for a full-length silver glittery gown.

Bucking the red carpet trend for flowing couture, Eva Longoria Parker made a fashion faux pas in a silver Marchesa flapper-style dress with an oversized bow.

The distracting bow and loose-fitting dress will inevitably fuel the pregnancy rumours which have surrounded the actress over the last couple of months.
