Hit

Taraji P. Henson is off the chain! Her angled bob, chain straps and bodice cut-out are Fifty Shades of Classy.

Hit

Whoa, this Game of Thrones star totally rules our Seven Kingdoms. Sophie Turner's electric blue strapless blouse and simple black slacks are a stunning combo with her red hair.

Hit

Speaking of the Stark family, Maisie Williams is just as fun and stylish as her on-screen sister in this pink quilted sheath dress that has the best accessory of all time -- pockets! Bonus: Marabou-topped strappy sandals.

Miss

Emmys host Andy Samberg's wife Joanna Newsom may be a talented harpist and vocalist, but her dress is a complete cacophany of accents gone wrong. The tepid pink tone and severe Frida Kahlo hairstyle are unflattering, yet they are the least of her problems. Can someone please explain that embroidery-hoop bodice and and car-wash fringe peekaboo skirt?

Hit

Orange Is the New Black's Laverne Cox just keeps getting better and better. This sleek, green gown with cut-out sides is sexy but elegant. She knows that nothing but a simple but loose hairstyle is all the accent she really needs.

Miss

Laura Prepon hasn't quite mastered the red carpet look yet. We're fans of her updo and bold gown color, but the embroidered bolero is just too overwrought and heavy.

7 of 61 Jason Merritt/Getty Images

Hit

Wow, Modern Family star Sarah Hyland's burgundy gown and tousled blonde locks is total va-va-va-voom glam with its low-cut back. She keeps the entire silhouette simple and only accents with a single bangle.

Hit

We love Tatiana Maslany's white pantsuit and sleek ponytail. Not only is it an elegant and clean look, but the plunging neckline gives it that feminine flair.

Miss

Although there's nothing really wrong with Amy Schumer's dress, there's definitely nothing right. After her bold past looks, we are completely bored and underwhelmed with this bridesmaid gown.

10 of 61 Mark Davis/Getty Images

Miss

Heidi Klum can look good in anything, but that doesn't make this one-sleeved, chiffon Big Bird-meets-Showgirls dress right. Sorry, not buying it, Versace or not.

11 of 61 Mark Davis/Getty Images

Hit

Taste the rainbow with Blindspot star Jaimie Alexander. This multi-colored sequined gown is old-school glam, but she keeps it fresh with her funky short bob.

12 of 61 Mark Davis/Getty Images

Hit

How flattering is this shade on Elisabeth Moss, especially with her platinum dye job? That touch of black at the top and full, unembellished skirt are perfection.

13 of 61 Jason Merritt/Getty Images

Hit

Can we please be Gina Rodriguez? The Jane the Virgin star is both fun and stunning in this white strapless number with feathered skirt.

14 of 61 Jason Merritt/Getty Images

Miss

Kiernan Shipka had us going until we looked at her bottom half. The yellow illusion neckline and brocade party dress are at least youthful and fun. Although we're not opposed to some sort of legging, these heavy black ones look like what you'd wear to the gym when you can't be bothered to shave your legs.

15 of 61 Mark Davis/Getty Images

Hit

We're already mourning the end of Downton Abbey, but star Joanne Froggatt is cheering us up. This blush, draped chiffon dress with criss-cross accents is both ethereal and romantic.

16 of 61 Paul A. Hebert/Invision/AP

Hit

Mom star Allison Janney is totally owning this skin-tight twinkling gown with so many illusion panels that we're thinking she'll have an awkward tan line later. But it would be totally worth it.

17 of 61 Frazer Harrison/Getty Images

Miss

These chain straps and deep blue/purple sequins are just way too dark and heavy for Claire Danes' slight frame and fun blonde bob. She looked uncomfortable.

18 of 61 Jason Merritt/Getty Images

Hit

In this Grecian taupe gown and with side-swept locks, Scream Queens star Emma Roberts is channeling Golden Era big-screen siren Veronica Lake.

19 of 61 Mark Davis/Getty Images

Hit

The Honorable Woman star Maggie Gyllenhaal is a show-stopper in the black and amethyst number. We can't get over that bold color combo and gorgeous full skirt.

20 of 61 Jason Merritt/Getty Images

Hit

She alive, damn it! Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt star Ellie Kemper carries off this multi-colored chevron-striped gown to perfection.

21 of 61 Frazer Harrison/Getty Images

Miss

There's a lot going on with Jane Krakowski's look. Part of us likes the quirkiness of the origami-inspired, color-blocked dress that fits her personality, but something about the peplum fit is off.

22 of 61 Frazer Harrison/Getty Images

Hit

American Horror Story star Sarah Paulson is the opposite of scary in this beautiful black and navy gown. She's on trend with the off-the-shoulder neckline.

23 of 61 Frazer Harrison/Getty Images

Miss

Uh, can we sidle up to the bar and order some whiskey? If Tracee Ellis Ross wanted to bring back Saloon Chic, then mission accomplished. At least the coral color is flattering?

24 of 61 Mark Davis/Getty Images

Hit

Lady Gaga's one-shoulder, assymetrically skirted dress is pure, flowing black glamour. Topped with minimal jewelry and adorable blonde bob, her look is one of our top red carpet looks.

25 of 61 Mark Davis/Getty Images

Miss

Hello, sunshine! Taylor Schilling's bright yellow dress is a smash with its assymmetrical, shirred neckline, contrasted by that bold red lip. BUT, we just wish we liked the fit and hem better, which veers into frumpy territory.

26 of 61 Mark Davis/Getty Images

Hit

We are green with envy looking at January Jones in the killer emerald pantsuit. The sweetheart neckline, starfish accent and subtly ruffled leg: We love it all.

27 of 61 Jason Merritt/Getty Images

Hit

Cat Deeley makes a case for maternity red carpet wear that isn't frumpy and overly drapey. This simple, spaghetti-strap gown gets oomph from its micro-beaded design and belly-hugging cut.

28 of 61 Jason Merritt/Getty Images

Miss

Sorry, we appreciate the concept, but the elaborate, busy beading on Christina Hendricks' dress is far too heavy and dark.

29 of 61 Alberto E. Rodriguez/Getty Images

Hit

No surprise that Sofia Vergara looks this effortlessly good in a sexy metallic sheath.

30 of 61 Charles Sykes/Invision for the Television Academy/AP

Hit

What we love about Tina Fey is that she exudes such elegance in looks that are uniquely her. The white color-blocked bodice with pointed cap sleeves are nice touches on what would otherwise be a simple black dress.

31 of 61 Mark Davis/Getty Images

Miss

Uh, is Anna Chlumsky's dress an elaborate infographic on which flowers dated other flowers? Fussy, messy and sad.

32 of 61 Jason Merritt/Getty Images

Hit

There's something gladitorial about this metallic dress, which is appropriate for Scandal star Kerry Washington. Plus: Amazing faux bob!

33 of 61 Jason Merritt/Getty Images

Hit

Dancing with the Stars judge Julianne Hough must have gotten the weather report early because this lingerie-inspired black gown probably kept her cool in Los Angeles' sweltering heat. We love the grecian hairdo.

34 of 61 Frazer Harrison/Getty Images

Hit

Not to be outdone, Christine Marzano showed far more skin in this elaborately held-together dress. It's provocative, but hey, if you got it, flaunt it.

35 of 61 Mark Davis/Getty Images

Miss

We very reluctantly give Lena Headey's Zuhair Murad gown a thumbs down. Although the halter top and sparkled skirt are gorgeous, the poofy skirt's fit does her post-baby body -- which is amazing -- a disservice.

36 of 61 Mark Davis/Getty Images

Miss

Game of Thrones co-star Carice Van Houten has a banging body (just ask Jon Snow!) but you's never know it in this boxy dress.

37 of 61 Mark Davis/Getty Images

Hit

Orange Is the New Black's Samira Wiley looks angelic in this partially caped fuchsia gown.

38 of 61 Alberto E. Rodriguez/Getty Images

Miss

Judith Light's navy long-sleeved crop top over a pink and orange floral dress is just a layered mismatch. Nice try, but far too labored.

39 of 61 Mark Davis/Getty Images

Hit

If this is 45, sign us up! Padma Lakshmi naturally kills it in this yellow-green metallic dress with a wrapped bodice.

40 of 61 Jason Merritt/Getty Images

Hit

Jessica Lange can do no wrong. The Oscar winner is confidence personified in this blue, off-the-shoulder gown with side-panel beading. Not so sure about those transition lenses, but we'll give her a pass because she's Jessica Freaking Lange.

41 of 61 Mark Davis/Getty Images

Hit

Is that Felicity Huffman? We're loving her brunette upswept 'do and classic halter dress.

42 of 61 John Shearer/WireImage

Miss

Yikes! Kathryn Hahn's crooked floral affair totally has us flustered. It's far too casual for such a big event, and the colors don't pop.

43 of 61 Jason Merritt/Getty Images

Hit

Trust Alan Cumming to school us in sartorial style. Menswear doesn't have to be boring with this slouchy and impeccably accessorized three-piece gray suit that's a tailored nod to Charlie Chaplin's Little Tramp.

44 of 61 Frazer Harrison/Getty Images

Hit

Homeland and Gotham actress Morena Baccarin sexes up the red carpet with this lacy red see-through gown.

45 of 61 Frazer Harrison/Getty Images

Hit

Christine Baranski in hot, hot, hot in this happy hot-pink sheath.

46 of 61 Jason Merritt/Getty Images

Hit

There's no wonder that The Last Man on Earth's Kristen Schaal looks so happy in this black and navy strapless gown with a full train.

47 of 61 John Shearer/WireImage

Hit

Laura Carmichael may play the perpetually worried Lady Edith on Downton Abbey, but at the Emmys she was carefree and effortlessly elegant in this black floral number.

48 of 61 Frazer Harrison/Getty Images

Miss

Kathy Bates never really seems comfortable with red carpet attire, and this droopy black number isn't helping. But we like her backswept hair!

49 of 61 Frazer Harrison/Getty Images

Hit

Amy Poehler rocked a different look, and we're definitely fans of her tousled auburn locks, multiple bangles, drop earrings and black column halter dress. The waist cut-outs are subtle but sexy.

50 of 61 Frazer Harrison/Getty Images

Miss

Edie Falco's pale pink dress adorned with tiny red flowers needs a bit more shape to be flattering.

51 of 61 Jason Merritt/Getty Images

Hit

Naomi Grossman's look is probably one of the most controversial of the night. The amorphous black and nude design gives the American Horror Story actress a slinky and creepy look, but we're digging the bold print and short hair and huge earrings. It's kind of elegant mob with a creepy twist.

52 of 61 Frazer Harrison/Getty Images

Hit

It's the little things! That extra shoulder strap on Julie Bowen's LBD elevates the classic black gown into something fun and flirty.

53 of 61 Jason Merritt/Getty Images

Miss

Although we appreciate the great fit on Taryn Manning's backless, drapey back dress, the whole thing feels too Morticia Addams for our taste.

54 of 61 Frazer Harrison/Getty Images

Hit

Julia Louis-Dreyfus' one-shouldered black dress is pure elegance.

55 of 61 Frazer Harrison/Getty Images

Hit

Uzo Aduba's hot pink dress with its criss-crossed halter neckline and that navy splatter accent is a head-turner.

56 of 61 Mark Davis/Getty Images

Miss

Uh, we're not sure what's going on with Nazanin Boniandi's dress. White pops with her hair and skin tone but this half-illusion, half-strapless, half-batwing dress adds up to one big mess.

57 of 61 Jason Merritt/Getty Images

Hit

How adorable is Portlandia's Carrie Brownstein in this suit and tailored shirt? And we love the red clutch.

58 of 61 Jason Merritt/Getty Images

Hit

Orange Is the New Black's Natasha Lyonne kills it in this off-the-shoulder black dress with a long fringed hem.

59 of 61 Jason Merritt/Getty Images

Hit

Modern Family's Ariel Winter is gorgeous in the simple red dress with a little detail on the neckline.

60 of 61 Jason Merritt, Getty Images

Miss

The proportions are off for Dascha Polanco's yellow top and black chiffon skirt.
