#EMMY'S 2014: Another Best-Dressed List

For the first time since 1976, the Emmys were held on a Monday night and the world was in an uproar.

Just kidding.

Nobody had anything better to do last night than sit back, relax, and watch Seth Meyers' make awkward puns about all the celebrity presenters. It was a night filled with awkward comedy (Weird Al Yankovic) and a few tears were shed when Billy Crystal paid tribute to Robin Williams. Other than that, most of the evening was fairly dull with a few wisecracks and inside jokes only an elite group of celebrities would understand.

Now, let's get to the main event: The Best-Dressed List.

Since I haven't made one of these in a while, I am very excited to share my choices with you. This was a difficult list to make as many celebrities were well-dressed on the carpet this year (much to our utter surprise). The stylists clearly know their clients and that definitely made it slightly more worth our watch.

Here it goes:

Taylor Schilling in Zuhair Murad
As soon as this Orange Is The New Black star hit the Red Carpet, her sleek gold number stood out. Sexy, yet tasteful, this look could not go wrong. After all, everyone loves a little shine on the Red Carpet. It may not have been orange, but I get the feeling she's just sick of the colour.

Halle Berry in Elie Saab
I did not spot Halle's dress until she got on stage to present an award and needless to say, I was very impressed with the choice. The soft dusty pink complimented her skin perfectly and the thigh high slit is always a crowd pleaser.

Heidi Klum in Zac Posen
It wouldn't be an awards night without a Zac Posen dress gracing the Red Carpet. Of course, Heidi Klum was the perfect candidate for the part. This classy coral number made her skin glow and accentuated those enviable blond locks.

Julia Roberts in Elie Saab
Yet another Elie Saab dress makes the best-dressed list. Maybe I have a soft spot for the designer or maybe Julia Roberts looked too stunning not to make the list. Choosing a short dress was definitely a risk for the Emmys, but Julia pulled it off with ease. With a perfect V and an adorable ruffled skirt, she stood out from the crowd.

Kate Mara in J. Mendel
There's something about this dress that was just right. Perhaps the flowing white fabric or the intricate floral appliqués at the top. Maybe white just projects an angelic vibe like no other colour. Whatever the reason, I really loved Kate Mara's dress last night.

Lizzy Caplan in Donna Karan Atelier
This dress was that jaw-dropping kind that everyone was talking about the moment, Masters of Sex star, Lizzy Caplan, hit the Red Carpet. Classy in the front and party in the back, Lizzy was the envy of everyone in the room. She's come a long way from her days as fierce Mean Girls character, Janice Ian.

Sara Hyland in Christian Siriano
Only a young starlet like Sara Hyland could wear a crop top to the Emmys and look utterly chic. The sliver of skin was just right and let's not forget to mention that gorgeous coral skirt. Extra points go Hyland for the high bun.

Kerry Washington in Custom Prada
Maybe Kerry is number 3 on my list because I have a girl crush on her. Sporting the colour of the evening, ORANGE, Kerry looked stunning and the glimpse of sparkly hot pants peeking out was the perfect finishing touch to this look.

January Jones in Prabal Gurung
Red was another theme last night and I'd like to award best red dress to January Jones. It was elegant and ostentatious and that is exactly why I loved it.

Allison Williams in Giambattista Valli
Giambattista Valli is one of my favourite designers and therefore, Allison Williams' decision to wear it automatically landed her on this list. I love the touch of yellow at the waist and the feminine bow at the bust made it feminine and chic. Did I mention I'm in love with it?

What are you thoughts? What would your best-dressed list look like?

Ponder it,
