Leading the star: Kim Kardashian and Glee's Lea Michele took to the red carpet at the 62nd Annual Primetime Emmy Award in Los Angeles, with Kim wearing a white Marchesa gown and Lea in an Oscar De La Renta dress
Kim Kardashian and Glee star Lea Michele joined the mutual appreciation society as they both gushed over each other's outfits at the 62nd Annual Primetime Emmy Awards.
The starlets started complimenting one another and swapped jewellery tips as they were interviewed on the red carpet by Ryan Seacrest outside the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles tonight.
Kim, 29, looked dazzling in a Grecian-style, floor length white Marchesa gown while Lea, 24, opted for a dark blue Oscar De La Renta dress, which Kim revealed she was 'freaking out' over.

While on the red carpet, Kim was quizzed about her relationship status, but appeared unsure whether she was 'taken' - despite being seen out and about with NFL hunk Miles Austin.
When asked whether she was 'taken' by E! presenter Seacrest, the curvy brunette said: 'I don't know, I don't know. I'm dating.'
And even though she looked immaculate in the figure-hugging number, Kim complained of difficulties choosing the right dress because she felt bloated from overeating the previous day.

Jimmy Fallon hosted the awards on NBC, which aired live across America after three decades of tape-delay broadcasts for the West Coast.

Hit musical comedy show Glee about a high school glee club was led the nominees at Sunday's Emmy Awards, including bids for best comedy series and cast members Matthew Morrison, Lea Michele, Jane Lynch and Chris Colfer. The show was nominated for a total of 19 gongs.
Modern Family was another freshman comedy front-runner, while 30 Rock was trying for its fourth consecutive best comedy series Emmy and Mad Men competed for its third drama series trophy.

The public had a hand in writing some of host Fallon's material. He planned to bring many celebrity presenters onstage with introductions submitted through Twitter.
Other Emmy contenders included Conan O'Brien's short-lived Tonight, which was nominated as best variety, music or comedy series while the show with Jay Leno back in charge was snubbed. David Letterman's Late Show also missed out on a nod, but 2009 winner The Daily Show With Jon Stewart was nominated.
The final season of Lost competed for best drama series and for acting honours for star Matthew Fox and supporting cast members Terry O'Quinn and Michael Emerson, chosen as best supporting drama actor last year.

HBO came into the ceremony as the kingpin after claiming 17 awards at the Aug. 21 creative arts Emmys, followed by ABC with 15 and Fox with nine. CBS, NBC and PBS each claimed seven.
The Pacific, the World War II miniseries produced by Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg, was the top nominee and captured a leading seven creative arts awards, which recognize technical and other achievements.
Ratings for the awards have increased importance: The TV academy's contract is up for renewal with the four major networks that had been airing the show in rotation for eight years, and the academy hopes last year's 8 percent audience increase is a trend after an all-time low in 2008.
The show's live nationwide broadcast and scheduling could be factors. The Emmys typically have aired immediately before TV's mid-September kickoff, but NBC pushed up the awards telecast to avoid a conflict with its Sunday night National Football League games that begin Sept. 12.
But fewer people tend to watch summertime TV, and the 5 p.m. PDT pre-primetime slot for the Emmys on the West Coast also tends to draw a smaller audience.
