The reality show hosts were twinning on the step-and-repeat.

Padma Lakshmi and Heidi Klum have a lot in common. 

Both are hosts of Emmy-nominated reality shows (Lakshmi of Bravo's Top Chef, Klum of Lifetime's Project Runway), both are former models, and on Sunday evening, both sparkled in stunning silver sequins on the Emmys red carpet. 

Lakshmi wowed in a long-sleeve gown by Naeem Kahn, which she styled with a bouncy ponytail and striking fuchsia lip. Klum, on the other hand, opted for a sexier, single-sleeve look by Michael Kors featuring a midriff-baring cutout. A sultry, smoky eye and nude lip rounded out the look, which was styled by rock-star stylist Maryam Malakpour.

Sequins were a big hit on this year's carpet, with Shiri Appleby and America Ferrera also hitting the step-and-repeat in sparkles. 

The 68th annual Emmy Awards, hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, airs live on Sunday, Sept. 18, at 5 p.m. PT/8 p.m. ET on ABC.
