She says her Giambattista Valli dress looks like cake, feels like sweatpants, so we can safely say she loves it. How do you feel about this ombré tiered ensemble?

The Scandal credits her high-slit, structured orange dress (with a sparkly detail underneath) to Prada, and her ridiculous post-baby body to “a lot of working out.”

The American Horror Story star went for an appropriately spooky red-dotted black tulle cloud, created by Armani Privé. Frightfully good or just frightful?

There’s no denying that one hot mama-to-be in this sparkling Lorena Sarbu number. But people seemed split on whether the plunging number was a little too, er, informative for the Emmys.

Her cobalt custom Rubin Singer had Keke’s stylists split. How do you vote on the deep-V, mermaid-silhouette gown?

Leave it to the House of Cards star to bring the surprise twist to the red carpet. From the front, her Ralph Lauren Collection jumpsuit is sedate. From the back, it’s super skin-baring.

On one hand, this high-necked golden number feels a little mature for the smokin’-hot State of Affairs . On the other, she’s got the perfect mother-of-the-bride dress for when her daughters walk down the aisle in about 20 years.

There’s “I woke up like this,” and then there’s “I came to the Emmys in the bedsheets I woke up in.” Into which category does fall?

We’d love to see the look Lady Mary would give this complicated (but colorful!) keyhole-cutout halter gown worn by her real-life alter ego on the red carpet.

Another red carpet, another controversial Kaley Cuoco look. This time around, it’s a tiered Monique Lhuillier bustier gown in the night’s hottest color (red) overlaid with pink lace appliqués.

It takes a bold star to wear prints on the red carpet. Julie chose her Peter Som dress because she felt it was “terribly, terribly chic” – do you agree?

And speaking of bold stars: was one of the few to go short – but we think it paid off in spades. (It didn’t hurt that we picked this Elie Saab dress for the red carpet last week!)
