The arrival of the Emmys reminds us that awards season is gearing up once more, and what excitement it brings! We love to tune in for all the emotional speeches and glamorous red carpet photo ops, but nothing beats taking in all the captivating gowns.

We swooned over Christina Hendricks and Claire Danes, while we could have done without the looks from Lena Headey and Heidi Klum. Now that awards season is officially kicked off, check out our list of the best dressed stars from last night’s Emmys.

Ellie Kemper

Worn by the wrong person this Naeem Khan gown could have gone terribly wrong. But the effervescent, bubbly Ellie Kemper from The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt is perfect for the bright, structured gown.

Perhaps the most attention-grabbing dress of the evening, Kerry Washington’s Marc Jacobs gown was just debuted during the Spring 2016 New York Fashion Week.

Her off-the-shoulder oxblood Zac Posen gown brings an Old Hollywood sophistication to the young Modern Family starlet.

Jaimie Alexander

There were rainbow gowns a-plenty at last night’s Emmys, but none stood out as much as Jaimie Alexander’s Armani Privé selection.

Laverne Cox

This deep teal dress from Calvin Klein Collection is a perfect selection for her statuesque, towering frame.

Carrie Brownstein

Though it’s not exactly a gown, we couldn’t help but swoon over the Portlandia star’s simple black suit. Feminine, unconventional and utterly brilliant, we love Brownstein for stepping into a perfect pantsuit.

Gina Rodriguez

The Jane The Virgin star looks like a modern-day Cinderella in this white, over-the-top Lorena Sarbua dress.

Padma Lakshmi

Green is risky shade, especially at an event like the Emmy’s. But the Top Chef host turned heads in this form-fitting chartreuse Romona Keveza gown.

Claire Danes

Normally we wouldn’t condone chains on couture, but in this instance we’ll make an exception. Claire Danes rocked this surprisingly elegant Prada gown.

Nothing scary here! The American Horror Story actress is fabulous in sparkly, blue and black Prabal Gurung.

Allison Janney 

Following in the footsteps of stars like Kim Kardashian and Beyonce, Allison Janney wears a body conscious Labourjoisie illusion dress with absolute confidence.  

Elisabeth Moss

Simple yet chic, this sweet Oscar De La Renta number is a wonderful choice for the former Mad Men actress.

Rachel Brosnahan

Even with the plunging neckline, there is a certain sophistication to the House of Cards actress’ black and metallic brown ensemble.

Julianne Hough

The devil is in the details in Julianne Hough’s risque but radiant Marchesa gown that leaves little to the imagination.
