Tonight marks the 70th annual Emmy Awards, and in the past 14 years, we’ve seen style on the red carpet run the gamut from daring fashion trends to classic Hollywood glamour. Here, we look back at the dresses that made an impact at the awards this side of the new millennium.

Although she wasn’t nominated, Blake Lively stole the spotlight in a plunging neckline and high-slit dress from Versace in 2009. Also leading the way with the more-is-more look was Heidi Klum in a John Galliano for Christian Dior Couture dress that recalled the smoldering elegance of Rita Hayworth. With beachy blonde waves and whimsical Chanel dresses, Sarah Jessica Parker and Jennifer Aniston brought an air of romance to the big night.

On the other end of the spectrum, Mischa Barton, Keri Russell, and Kerry Washington dazzled in sequins from head to toe. Julianne Moore in Christian Dior Couture and Claire Danes in Lanvin showed that bold color can be a beguiling choice—ditto for Allison Williams in Oscar de la Renta and Katie Holmes in Calvin Klein Collection. A favorite from the 2013 Emmys was Kiernan Shipka, who wore an intricate Delpozo dress that was sophisticated without being stuffy.

The following year, Gwen Stefani all but stole the show in a shimmering Atelier Versace number boasting edgy metal detailing. More recently, Lady Gaga opted for an all-black gown by stylist turned designer and close personal friend, Brandon Maxwell. The asymmetric neckline flattered Lady Gaga’s 5-foot-1 frame and furthermore showcased her signature sense of dramatic flair. But whether they brought home a statuette or not, these women’s fashion choices made them part of the winner’s circle.

Above, see these and more of the 33 best moments in Emmys red carpet history.

    Will Cloud and Improving Margins Dominate Amazon's Earning Report?

    Part of what drove the company to those dizzying heights was the impressive results Amazon has produced so far this year.

    Marijuana stocks to watch: Aurora Cannabis investments may be more valuable than its pot

    Aurora Cannabis Inc. is a major pot producer, but if its bets on other cannabis companies continue to pay off, it may be able to stop actually growing weed on its own. Aurora (ACBFF)(CA:ACB) said recently its investments were worth more than C$700 million ($540 million) as of Sept. 21, bolstered in part by demand for pot stocks ahead of full legalization of marijuana in Canada on Wednesday. As the entire sector has benefited, so has Aurora’s portfolio, boosting the company’s fiscal fourth-quarter profit to C$79.9 million, after a loss of $20.8 million the year earlier.

    Colorado’s Marijuana Market Just Hit This Huge Milestone

    Marijuana has been legally available in Colorado for recreational use since 2014, and consumers' appetite for marijuana products continues to grow due to the launch of new products, including concentrates and edibles. As a result, Colorado's annual marijuana sales surpassed $1 billion in August -- the earliest it has ever achieved that milestone. There's been some debate over how much money would move from the black market to regulated markets following legalization, but Colorado's experience suggests it's substantial.

    Marijuana stocks to watch: Canopy Growth is the cannabis business’s $4 billion gorilla

    The following article is part of a package of stories that MarketWatch is publishing to mark the start of full legalization of cannabis for adult use in Canada on Wednesday. Smith Falls, Ontario–based Canopy Growth Corp. made headlines and drove cannabis stocks to new heights over the summer when it announced that Corona brewer Constellation Brands Inc. was going to invest an additional $4 billion in the company. Billed by both companies as a strategic partnership, the additional $4 billion investment adds to the 9.9% stake that Constellation bought in October of last year and sets the company up to either be bought outright by Constellation — via warrants that could increase its stake to more than 50% — or continue to work with the beverage company to create a range of consumer-focused cannabis products that may one day appear in markets in dozens of countries.
