The Emmy Awards are here!

As the official kickoff to awards season, the Emmys always bring out some of the biggest style moments of the year. But before the red carpet fills with television’s hottest actors and actresses, stars tap their go-to stylists, makeup artists, hair stylists, manicurists and more as they get primped and pampered for the show. The best part of glam time? Sharing a fun behind-the-scenes look at what it takes to get red carpet ready on social media. Read on to see how everyone from Laverne Cox to Kim Kardashian is getting prepped for TV’s biggest night.

An Emmys dress fitting with Niecy Nash and designer Christian Siriano wouldn’t be complete without some wine. The duo’s drink of choice: a white from Sterling Vineyards.

“I’m not going on the red carpet like this,” the Orange Is the New Black star said as she snapped a selfie wearing Patchology Eye Gels before getting her makeup done.

Kim Kardashian West

Although Kim Kardashian West’s longtime makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic didn’t reveal whose makeup he’s doing, the reality star has been dropping social media hints about attending the Emmys and she’d likely turn to her pro.

“I’m not wearing white this year,” Kardashian West wrote on Instagram with a photo of her at the Emmys in 2009.

Dedivanovic said he is “so excited for the Emmys today!” as he snapped a photo of multiple Tatcha products (including The Silk Canvas Primer, The Silk Peony Eye Cream and The Water Cream) that he’s using on the star. “Prepping skin with @tatcha,” he added.

Kelly Osbourne

After rocking a pale gray-lilac hue, Kelly Osbourne showed off a darker shade of lavender that she dyed before the Emmys.

#SneakPeak at my hair and makeup for the #emmys today. What do you guys think? 💜💜💜,” Osbourne said.

The day before the Emmys, stylist Brad Goreski paid celeb-beloved esthetician Joanna Vargas a visit to get a microcurrent facial, which he calls his “go to” plumping and tightening treatment before red carpets.

“So sick from spending the whole day yesterday with gastritis that I had to get an IV to get me onto the red carpet today,” the star admitted on her Instagram Story.

The 71st Primetime Emmy Awards are airing live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles starting at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Fox.
