Primetime Emmy Awards: Top Ten Red Hot, Red Carpet Looks

Forget the MTV VMAs (no, seriously, forget that ever happened, it will give you nightmares), THIS is a proper red carpet. Lots of looks that we are drooling over and one or two that made us cover our eyes.

First, to the breath takers...

Lizzie Caplan in Donna Karen. I dare you not to drool just a little.

This girl is lighting up the red carpets at the moment, and she is nailing it every time.

Then there was Sarah Hyland in crop top and skirt by Christian Siriano.

That skirt made us gulp in delight.

Next up is Sofia Vergara. She is on our girl crush list and it's nice to see her in a balcony setting for a change as opposed to the usual plunging neckline.

Christina Hendricks looked suitably lush in Marchesa (but we do miss her fringe).

Also in red was Christina's Mad Men co-star January Jones. Her Prabal Gurung is a thing of beauty. And those shoes are swoon and slobber worthy.

Keeping with the red theme (unavoidable, it was everywhere last night) we have Claire Danes wearing one of the Firey's from Labryinth. For those who like the firey forest nymph look, this one is by Givenchy.

And we'd happily watch her leave a room in this gown. We hope that doesn't sound too pervy, but the back really is stunning.

Other notable mentions include Cat Deeley, Alison Williams, and Kate Walsh. Now to those who took our breath away for altogether different reasons.

Lena Dunham in Giambattista Valli Couture. She always has the balls to be different, but she just looks a bit lost in this. Like, I actually can't see her. It's like she's melting in a bowl of Angel Delight... her canary yellow number from last years' awards season was definitely more of a winner.

And whenever a starlet sidles up in a gold column dress to an awards ceremony, people are going to state the obvious about 'coming as an award.' Step forward, Katherine Heigl.

Now to Kerry Washington in Prada. We like the idea, and love the colour, just a shame the execution didn't quite transfer. In other words, why is it all sloping off to her right like that?

And, finally, we have Julia Roberts in Elie Saab. Part of us mumbled "Julia Roberts is evidently borrowing clothes off Emma Roberts", but if you can pull it off, why not? She looks like she's off on a hot date with Poseidon (or Neptune) and they're going to dance their hineys off, godnammit.

And yes, we promised ten looks but here is a bonus, mainly because Mchelle Dockery in Rosie Assoulin could not go unnoticed. We're primed not to warm the colour scheme (something about the skirt just screams Aer Lingus to me), but you have to give it up to someone who consistently takes risks. And her hair and makeup is doll-perfection.

Have a look through the gallery below and let us know what gúnas you love and the hair and makeup looks that give you the lusts.
