Red Carpet Rundown: 33 Memorable Looks From the Emmys Inline
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.
