There's about T-minus an hour (ish) until we can tune in live to see which stars truly arrived on the red carpet for the Emmy Awards. We're not talking about the ones that merely show up, take their seats, and clap politely for their fellow nominees. We're much more interested in the actors who make memorable appearances from the moment they step out of their limos and waltz their way into red carpet history before even taking their seat at the Nokia Theatre.
And, there's one group of attendees who truly excel in making the Hollywood sartorial magic happen: the up-and-comers. We need not look any further than this past weekend to predict which personalities will very likely land themselves on the best-dressed lists across the board tonight. Coming off of a whirlwind Saturday and Sunday of pre-Emmy events, brunches, ceremonies, etc., we've hand-selected five of the most promising style stars…who are probably en route to the award ceremony right now. If the pre-celebrations have been any indication, they're about to make one heck of an entrance.

While you were all antsy and eager to watch the new Masters of Sex episode all weekend, Johnson — a.k.a. Lizzy Caplan — was attending pre-Emmy celebrations in a Wes Gordon creation which was both ladylike (that ankle-length pencil skirt) and daring (that crop top). Sound like a familiar character to you?

Before Laverne Cox landed on the VMAs best-dressed list, she stunned in amazing outfit after outfit all weekend leading up to tonight's main event. We most definitely have our sights set on this OITNB breakout star — and Emmy nominee! — tonight.

A white, beaded, palazzo-pant twinset sounds like something that your grandmother might have worn to your Sweet 16 party. But, somehow Sarah Hyland made the Georges Hobeika couture look incredibly — ahem — modern, youthful, and chic during an appearance at the Entertainment Weekly pre-Emmy party this weekend.
