10 Ladies Who Killed It At The Emmys

It’s probably time the event started a best-dressed segment

Claire Danes in Prada

Claire Danes in Prada

Usually in long, feminine, fool-proof gowns, the three-time Emmy winner surprised us with edgy, sequinned purple Prada perfection this time. “It's a little rockstar-esque - it’s Prada.” she said of her choice.

At 18, the Game of Thrones starlet sure knows what looks good on her - and works for her. As if her quilted pink dress and furry sandals weren’t youthful and stylish enough, Williams won over the crowd with her quirky penguin clutch

Jaime Alexander in Armani Privé

Other than a little PDA with her fiancé, Pete Facinelli, it was the 31-year-old’s shimmery Armani Privé dress that caught our attention. We also salute her for looking so fresh and chic despite having to lug around those floor-skimming, heavily embellished long sleeves in the heat. 


Kerry Washington in Marc Jacobs

Kerry Washington in Marc Jacobs

Talk about a quick turnaround - this dress was just seen on the Marc Jacobs SS16 runway show less than a week ago, and now it’s on Kerry Washington. “It has a lot of holes in it because it’s mesh. And so in this weather it’s working well. I feel the breeze in all kinds of places right now,” she cheekily said of her glitzy number.

Jamie Lee Curtis

Looking ever so chic and poised, Jamie Lee Curtis showed up in a LDB (Long Black Dress) while sporting a pixie cut and diamond cuff. P/S: Not that anyone’s keeping tabs, but she wore something similar 26 years ago at the 1989 Emmy Awards. Now there’s proof that classics never get old. 

Kiernan Shipka in Dior

We can’t get over how well and how much this 15-year-old has grown up since her Mad Men days (she was 8 then). Following in the footsteps of Emma Watson and Emma Roberts, she too chose a dress-over-pants look instead of a gown. We’ve got high hopes for this one yet.

Samira Wiley

The red carpet always needs a pop of colour, and Samira Wiley sure popped in a one-shoulder fuchsia gown. 

Sarah Hyland in Zac Posen

The Modern Family star showed off her feminine figure in a plum-hued Zac Posen FW15 dress and perfectly tousled brunette bob. We’re pretty sure her sophisticated look will be the inspiration for proms to come.  

Lady Gaga in Brandon Maxwell

Lady Gaga in Brandon Maxwell

Yep, this is just a simple black dress on a bob-haired blonde, but you have to understand that the blonde in question is Lady Gaga. Say what? The singer-songwriter, who’s known for her bizarre looks (remember the meat dress?), stunned the crowd in a glamorous Brandon Maxwell sculptural dress. This is one time when simplicity made a strong statement.


Tatiana Maslany in Bouchra Jarrar Couture

Tatiana Maslany in Bouchra Jarrar Couture

This is the first time the Orphan Black actress was nominated for an Emmy, but it didn’t matter that she didn’t win because she already struck gold with this outfit. Keeping her accessories to the minimum and her hair in a sleek ponytail, Maslany looked absolutely stellar in her crisp, white pant suit.  


It was reportedly 38 degrees Celsius at the 67th Emmy Awards in Los Angeles, but these ladies still managed to dazzle on the red carpet in their heavy dresses (and pants).
