The Best of Emmys Undressed!

Slide 1 of 31

Ally McMeal:Nicole Richie, take note: Healthy beats hollow-eyed any day. Cases in point: Former "Ally McBeal" costars Calista Flockhart and Portia de Rossi, whose previously undernourished physiques once had hunger pang-plagued viewers running for the Ho-Hos during commercial breaks. These days, the actresses rank among the most alluring on the red carpet courtesy of their more robust -- but admittedly still slimline -- silhouettes. Flockhart, who became a poster girl for the lollipop brigade after she appeared at the 1998 Emmys looking far more cadaverous than captivating, is graceful in an elegant one-shouldered goddess gown, while de Rossi, whose weight once scarily dipped into the double digits, glows in a smoky grey cutout Zac Posen. Our only suggestion: Portia might want to ease up on the color coordination. Matching your shoes to your purse is one thing, but that complementary lipstick goes a shade too far.  (Photo by Gregg DeGuire/ & Sara De Boer/Retna)
