Wives Who Outshone Their Nominated Husbands on the Emmys Red Carpet

Aaron Paul, Seth Meyers and Matt Damon were the ones up for Emmy awards Sunday night, but we’ve got to break it to the boys: Their plus-ones totally and justifiably stole the spotlight on the red carpet. It’s not that the small-screen stars weren’t dapper in their tuxes (they were); it’s just that their wives looked so amazing.

Aaron Paul didn’t win the statue for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama, but with his smoking hot new wife Lauren Parsekian by his side in a strapless, champagne gown with a cleavage-baring sweetheart neckline, we can’t imagine he was feeling bummed. (In fact, we’re pretty sure Paul is incapable of feeling anything but gleeful next to his new wife. Just watch this video of him to see what we’re talking about.) Parsekian accessorized her pretty gown with an A. Jaffe diamond necklace (weighing in at 10 carats and $108,018) and a perfectly undone updo.

Newlywed Meyers was also overshadowed by his wife’s standout style. Alexi Ashe selected a black-and-white Carolina Herrera gown that editors were immediately smitten with. We also love that she decided to pull her hair back to show off the unique halter neckline.

And after wearing quite a few sequins himself (for his turn in Behind the Candelabra), Damon let wife Luciana Barroso wear the sparkles in the relationship. She hit the carpet in a gold Naeem Khan gown featuring a simple, curve-hugging silhouette and allover wavy sequin stripes. Wonder if he felt a tinge of jealousy, standing next to the dazzling dress in his plain ol’ tux.

Which of these three wives outshone her celebrity husband the most?
