10 Best Emmy Looks
2007: EVA LONGORIA PARKER
The Desperate Housewives star sparkled in a glittering Kaufman Franco (who also designed her wedding reception dress!), Celestina clutch and loose curls.
2006: KATHERINE HEIGL
The Grey's Anatomy actress channeled the blonde bombshells of classic Hollywood in her second-skin Escada, accessorized with Jimmy Choo shoes and clutch.
2005: HALLE BERRY
Double-nominee Berry may have left the ceremony empty-handed, but she swept the red carpet in this stunning Ungaro gown and minimalist silver jewelry.
2004: JENNIFER ANISTON
A five-time nominee (and 2002 winner), this Friend looked radiant in a dazzling beaded Chanel column and Fred Leighton earrings.
2003: SARAH JESSICA PARKER
Known for her quirky fashion choices both on- and offscreen, the Sex and the City star lived up to her reputation in this over-the-top Chanel couture gown.
2002: COURTENEY COX
The Friends star looked ready to dance the night away at the post-show parties in this flapper-inspired Christian Dior chiffon dress and barely-there silver sandals.
2001: JESSICA ALBA
In keeping with the more somber tone of that year's post-9/11 ceremonies, the then-Dark Angel star wore an understated black sheath and matching coat by Richard Tyler.
2000: DEBRA MESSING
Talk about red-hot! The Will and Grace star celebrated her first nomination with a sizzling satin Vera Wang Gown and a megawatt smile.
1999: SARAH MICHELLE GELLAR
Slaying vampires must be great exercise. The Buffy star highlights her toned back in a plunging Vera Wang gown and an extra-long blonde ponytail.
1998: CHRISTINA APPLEGATE
She would have to wait until 2003 to win an Emmy (for her work on Friends), but Applegate had a fashion triumph in this embellished Badgley Mischka gown.
