The small screen was celebrated in style last night with a glamorous raft of celebrities attending the Emmy Awards
The stars of the small screen were out in full force last night for the 66th Annual Prime Time Emmy Awards.
Breaking Bad was the big winner of the night, but British series Sherlock also picked up an impressive three awards – with Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman scooping up Actor, Supporting Actor and Best Writing Mini Series.
The British boys might have scooped up the gongs but the girls definitely made their mark on the red carpet. Click through to see the best gowns of the evening…
Draped in romantic dusky-pink chiffon, Cat Deeley was a vision at last night’s awards. This ombre gown by British fashion house, Burberry was possibly our favourite of the evening.
Downton darling Michelle Dockery might not have gone home with a gong but she certainly didn’t disappoint when it came to the fashion stakes. This floor sweeping, tri-coloured dress by cutting edge NYC designer Rosie Assoulin, complemented her porcelain skintone perfectly.
Last night, Heidi Klum kept it chic and simple proving less is definitely more in this Zac Posen dress. The cascading coral fabric effortlessly skimmed over her flawless silhouette, whilst the elegant and super-flattering batwing sleeves gave it a soft feminine edge.
Anchored by flirty tiered ruffles, Julia Roberts’s heavily embellished Elie Saab dress may not have been a floorsweeper but it still wowed. The plunging neckline and lace underlay gave the decidedly youthful cut a grown up edge.
Draped in a form-flattering Marchesa gown, Christina Hendricks stunned at last night’s Emmy Awards. Crafted from scarlet satin, the shapely fishtail clung to the American actresses amorous curves in all the right places.
In a break away from her usual sixties updo, the mad men star let her red wavy locks flow free.
Another English rose to take a break from filming at Highclere Castle to attend the star-studded awards ceremony in L.A was Joanne Froggatt. She took to the red carpet in a J. Mendel ivory gown sprinkled with gold grecian embellishments. Doesn’t she scrub up well!
Red was the colour to be seen in at this year’s awards, and January Jones showed us exactly why. Sticking to her favourite dress shape, the star looked every inch the screen goddess in this flowing Prabal Gurung ensemble. Her strappy shoes added a fashionable edge to the otherwise romantic dress.
Betsy’s watercolour Alice + Olivia dress was custom made – which must be why it looks so flawless! We love the stunning print on this, and the ankle grazer length is totally on-trend for next season. The perfect excuse to show off your shoes, we say!
Lucy always looks stunning, but we think this is one of her best looks yet. The cream hue and all-over lace are beautifully romantic, but the corset-style sheer panels and plunging neckline add just the right amount of edge. The perfect simple-yet-dynamic dress.
American Horror Story actress Angela showed us that all-white can look stunning. We particularly love the gathering and gold accent from the belt. A perfect Grecian look.
The thigh slit is going nowhere! Celebs have been flashing their pins in abundance at recent awards ceremonies, but Breaking Bad star Anna made this Jenny Packham gown her own with the asymmetric shoulder and cropped overlay.
Minnie kept it simple in red – the stand-out colour of the night. We love that she pared back her accessories to ensure all attention was on that goreous detailed neckline.
Orange Is The New Black star Taylor Schilling looked gorgeous in a nude embellished Zuhair Murad gown. The high neck and dipped sides made a unique change from the usual red carpet dress shape.
Presenter Amy Poehler makes us wish it was Christmas already! This silver Theia gown suits her shape perfectly, and is perfect for heading into next season. We think this is one of the most showstopping dresses of the night.
