See the Emmy’s 10 best dressed stars

22 September 2008


US television stars took to the red carpet last night for the annual Emmy Awards. Full length gowns (strapless or one-shouldered) seemed to be the reoccurring theme of the evening on everyone from America Ferrara to Christina Applegate, but we loved Eva Longoria Parker's Marchesa number and Lauren Conrad unveiled her own design. As for the actual awards? TV satire 30 Rock (starring Alec Baldwin and Grazia favourite Tina Fey), Mad Men and new political drama John Adams were amongst the big winners. British actress Same Eileen Atkins won best supporting actress for her role in BBC drama Cranford and Tom Wilkinson picked up a trophy for best supporting actor in a mini-series for John Adams.

Check out who wore what - and what we thought of their look - on the Emmy Red Carpet below. Then tell us who you think looked best below?
