By the time the Emmys roll around every year, we're feeling long overdo for a shot of serious red-carpet glamour. Thankfully, the stars did not disappoint last night and we got our long-awaited dose of showstopping beauty looks — and then some. Among a sea of sequins, we saw some good, some bad, and some just plain confusing (we're looking at you January) looks sashay down the red carpet.
One big trend we noticed this year was a return to more natural, effortless (but still glamorous!) hair and makeup amid the usual sea of high-maintenance updos and severe smoky eyes (ahem, you know who you are).
We loved Claire Danes' sleek curls, swooned over Julianne Moore's bold, crimson lip, and were quite pleasantly surprised by Lena Dunham's glam transformation. So, without further ado, here are our top picks for the ladies who blew our minds, made us speechless, and left us wanting more.
