Emmy Awards 2016: the best red carpet looks of the night

Emmy Awards 2016: the best red carpet looks of the night

by Paige Exell -

Last night, the 68th annual Primetime Emmy Awards took place at Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles, where televisions biggest stars gathered to celebrate wildly successful series' like Stranger Things, Game of Thrones, Scandal, and more. Among the big winners of the evening, Game of Thrones made history by becoming the most awarded TV series in history, with 38 awards for its 6 seasons (surprise, surprise!).

Aside from Jimmy Kimmel's hilarious quips, we tuned into last night's Emmy Awards for the fashion. Despite the heat (everyone was fanning themselves as soon as they escaped the car's AC), it seemed like the stars and their stylists were all on the same page. A steady stream of white dresses appeared on Julie Bowen, Tracie Ellis Ross, Heidi Klum, Keri Russell and Michelle Dockery. Yellow was also on trend with Ellie Kemper in a knit number, Mandy Moore in a ruffled column and Taraji P. Henson all in egg yolk brights.

Missed last night's award show? Worry not, because Get The Look is helping you relive the evening by presenting some of the best looks of the night.

EMMY AWARDS 2016: BEST DRESSED ON THE RED CARPET

SIMPLICITY

Unlike the red carpet at the MTV Video Music Awards, the Emmy Awards are known for chic, elegant, and subtle celebrity style. This means television (and movie) stars are trading in their sheer, ultra-sexy cut-outs and extra large thigh-high slits for subdued necklines, toned down colour schemes, and glamorous fabrics like suede and satin.

Among our favourites were Emilia Clarke and Kirsten Dunst, who turned simple and subtle into sexy with their red carpet picks. While the Game of Thrones actress Emilia Clarke wore a stunning nude gown that moulded perfectly to her figure, Dunst, the star of Fargo, opted for a vintage look with her embellished black dress with plunging neckline.

EXCEPTIONS TO THE RULE

Although the overall outfit theme was subtle and simple, it wouldn't be a megawatt event without a little sparkle, and Sarah Paulson (stunning in green Prada pailettes), Claire Danes (glowing in gold Schiaparelli) and Laverne Cox shine bright in sequins. Crayola colours like red, green, and yellow, along with extra deep Vs and detached trains rounded out our top trends of the night.
