The 42 Best Emmy Dresses of All Time

While the Oscars and the Golden Globes often overshadow the Emmys on the fashion front, make no mistake about it — this ceremony has really provided some show-stopping looks over the past several decades. From amazing 3-D effect ruffles to sweeping trains and even gowns fit for a princess, the annual award show honoring TV’s top talent routinely offers viewers their fill of eye candy. A lot of the noteworthy style moments belong to A-listers, but there were a few once under-the-radar stars who used the Emmys to launch themselves into the fashion stratosphere. With this year’s edition taking place on Sunday, it seems like the perfect time to reflect back on the best Primetime Emmys red carpet dresses ever.
