Every awards show has moments that make us laugh, squeal, and even cry. From the SAGs to the VMAs, we've chuckled out loud and Tweeted faster than we even knew our fingers could type, all at the hand of our favorite celebrities. And still, despite an awards season that seems to be less of a season and more of a year-round thing, we have a special place in our hearts (and homes) for our television favorites. The men and women being honored at Monday's Emmys are those we welcome into our hearts — and living rooms.
Television offers an entirely different level of fandom, adoration, and bonding, if you will — the same goes for the Emmys red carpet. We feel like we know Issa Rae and Elisabeth Moss personally, and we're cheering them on, screaming, 'You better work, girls.' It feels like we've spent hours of our lives with Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer, who are both presenting this evening, so we want them to show up and slay. We feel such a personal connection to the women of television that we just can't wait to see what they'll show up wearing.
Despite the fact that we're not actually BFFs, we're rounding up our favorite ladies in our favorite looks from the night, ahead. You can bet we'll be shouting "Yaaas" at our TV screen all red carpet long — because we know they'd do the same for us (or so we'd like to think).

Turns out 2017's Pantone's color of the year, greenery, is still alive, and Dakota Fanning is proof in this draped Dior haute couture gown. Paired with matching earrings, it's a timeless look.

We can all agree that it's pretty much impossible for Scarlett Johansson to look bad. This structured white Balmain dress is no exception. The draping and extra deep-V really make it feel unique — plus, it's an ideal cut for showing off her back tattoo.

Two reasons to love Padma Lakshmi's J.Mendel dress: 1) It's the IRL version of the dancing-lady-emoji; 2) It was something she already had in her closet. We're all for outfit-repeating!

Our favorite red-carpet duo? Leslie Jones and Christian Siriano, who always know how to deliver a look. For tonight, Siriano (who Jones calls "my baby"), dreamed up a holographic pink pantsuit that catches those bright red-carpet lights just so. "We have a good time together," she told Rancic — and isn't that all that really matters?

Millie Bobby Brown is a red carpet veteran at the ripe age of 14. She also happens to be one of our favorite style icons. Every custom Calvin Klein By Appointment dress she wears is better than the next — and this rose-printed number is one of our favorites. Judging by last year, Brown is a dedicated fan of the color pink. Hey, you know what they say: If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Stranger Things girl we want to be, part two. Sadie Sink know fashion: Just look at those power shoulders on this Hiraeth Collective dress. Styled with a red lip and a simple black heel, this is how you do the red carpet.

Three cheers for Allison Janney's stylist. Of the sequined magenta dress, stylist Tara Swennen told The Hollywood Reporter: "It's very loud. It's actually a dress that we fell in love with during Oscar season, but we found it at the end of the awards show run. We were both still head over heels in love with it."

Sandra Oh, whose name is already buzzing tonight as the first Asian woman to be nominated for a lead actress Emmy, is giving us life in this red Ralph & Russo dress. The best accessory? Her proud parents by her side, of course.
