Even if you've traded in your cable box for an Apple TV and Netflix subscription, you know we're living in a golden age of television — and that's what makes this year's Emmy Awards all the more exciting. The annual event is a treasured red carpet moment of awards season — where silver screen stars get many-a fashion moments during whirlwind press tours and international premieres, television stars typically rev up for one main event. And while we can lament that this red carpet isn't always the most exciting, thanks to shows like Stranger Things and Black-ish, we're expecting a line-up of style-minded celebrities who'll bring their fashion A-game.
The eclectic array of nominees, from breakout network stars to HBO starlets, showed up in everything from Chanel Haute Couture to custom Calvin Klein by Appointment. It may be Fashion Month, but the best looks aren't just on the runways — they're on the red carpet too.

If Elisabeth Moss' 2016-2017 style evolution could be summed up in two images, it'd be a flashback to her highlighter pink strapless dress from last year's Emmys, and a picture from tonight. This year's baby pink strapless Prabal Gurung number is a lesson that outfit-repeating can totally be chic.

How many times can we look at a silver sequined gown this evening and still be in love? Apparently, there is no limit. Sarah Paulson makes our list almost every red carpet appearance due to her admiration for risk-taking pieces — like this big-shouldered disco dream from Carolina Herrera's spring 2018 collection.

We've yet to find a suit Evan Rachel Wood doesn't love, but this one goes in the books as being extra-special. A collaborative design effort with Jeremy Scott, the Westworld star has hit peak tuxedo with a custom all-white, wide-legged number we're hoping makes a similar appearance down Moschino's next runway.

We're cheering as hard as Leslie Jones was at last week's Christian Siriano show. Her enthusiasm for his latest collection naturally meant she'd be wearing one of his designs on tonight's red carpet. We're obsessed with this friendship.
