Emmy Fashion 2014: Best Red Carpet Dresses

3 years ago

TV stars walked the Emmy Awards red carpet in rainbow of dresses, but red and coral were the hot colors for 2014. My favorites, though, had their own style: I loved the graphic layers of Michelle Dockery's dress (which was so modern but still gave me a Downton Abbey vibe); Laverne Cox ofOrange Is The New Black brought elegance and drama in a draped, caped gown; and I adored Kerry Washington—not just because I'm required to adore her forever after seeing her in person at BlogHer '14, but because that Prada getup was orange AND the new black.

But I want YOU to look and vote for your favorites by color—so read on and vote!
