Project Runway guru Tim Gunn wasn’t kidding when he said that “aubergine is the new black” this year. Shades of purple reigned on the Emmy red carpet. Jamie Pressly and winner Megan Mullally both donned regal Badgley Mischkas.

However, Sandra Oh’s frilly lavender Vera Wang was over-accessorized with heavy gold chain jewelry (“I feel like the last of the Romanovs-meets-Run DMC!” said Oh as she fashion policed herself). Ellen Pompeo in John Galliano for Christian Dior looked overdressed for the 110′ weather. Evangeline Lilly, in Versace, proved that simple styling and a sparkling smile are all a girl needs when wearing the color of royalty.

Have grape expectations of your own? Pick up a couple key purple pieces to incorporate into your fall wardrobe.

Work or Play: Feel ultra-feminine in this Central Park West top.icon

Event worthy: The Anne Klein Currant Satin Dress icon or this ABS by Allen Schwartz Chiffon Slipdressicon ensures “all-eyes-on-you” style.

Fab Feet: Burgundy pumps from Steve Maddenicon follow the open toe trend.

Shoulder Bling: Betsey Johnson’s bucket bagicon is a plum choice carryall for fall.
