The 20 Best Emmy Awards Dresses
Best Emmy Awards Dress: Halle Berry, 2005
Simplicity is the key to Halle Berry’s 2005 Emmy dress. The tranquil blue Ungaro number stunned but didn’t compete with her movie-star beauty.
Best Emmy Awards Dress: Jennifer Aniston, 2004
Jennifer Aniston looked comfy and confident in this beaded Chanel column dress. Boho waves, statement earrings, and a megawatt smile helped the star’s signature laid-back style show through.
Best Emmy Awards Dress: Blake Lively, 2009
Yowza! Before Angelina Jolie’s leg caused a red carpet sensation, Blake Lively’s stem (and the rest of her too) commanded attention in this beyond-sexy Versace stunner.
Best Emmy Awards Dress: Archie Panjabi, 2011
The Good Wife star Archie Panjabi rocked emerald Angel Sanchez in 2011, and the flawless fit, color, and accessories made for one flattering red carpet look.
Best Emmy Awards Dress: Eva Longoria, 2006
Eva Longoria has a history of wearing short dresses to the Emmys, but this floaty, white Jason Wu is our fave. A little retro and a lot flirty, Eva’s look was daring in the best way.
Best Emmy Awards Dress: Ali Larter, 2007
Who wants to wear a stuffy gown when you can basically wear pajamas? OK, very glamorous pajamas, but still. In this sleek satin Reem Acra dress, Ali Larter showed us that relaxed doesn’t have to mean sloppy.
Best Emmy Awards Dress: Claire Danes, 2010
Ladies, take note: This is how you do sparkle and still look elegant. Claire Danes was radiant in this pale peach Armani column dress (no jewelry required!).
Best Emmy Awards Dress: Lea Michele, 2011
Lea Michele had us at goodbye in this Marchesa gown. The shoulder details and back-cowl were unexpected and totally sultry.
Best Emmy Awards Dress: Keri Russell, 2000
Back in 2000, Keri Russell distracted everyone from that famous haircut with the ultimate old-Hollywood-inspired gown by Armani. The plunging neckline, sparkle factor, and just-clingy-enough fit made us all forget about those MIA Felicity curls.
Best Emmy Awards Dress: Kim Kardashian, 2010
Why was Kim Kardashian at the Emmys? We’re still not sure. But we’re definitely smitten with the cool, ethereal Marchesa frock she wore to the ceremony.
