And the red carpet is one of the best platforms for designers to showcase their creations. Here’s a list of 10 best and worst looks of the Emmy 2017 red carpet.

Best look


Nicole Kidman

To no one’s surprise, Nicole Kidman’s red carpet gown features on the best-dressed list. The fashion icon chose a Calvin Klein by Appointment A-line dress with a sparkling silver halter neckline. She paired the dress with crystal-embellished pink satin sandals with asymmetrical crystal straps. She wore her hair up with curled tendrils framing her face.

Thompson’s look is easy and fun. The technicolor dress by American designer Rosie Assoulin commanded the spotlight. The rainbow gown had a high neck and a cutout at the waist. She completed her look with slicked back hair and minimal jewelry.

Though we actually love Reese Witherspoon’s look. But the blue Stella McCartney blazer was suitable for the set of ‘Legally Blonde’ than the red carpet.


Jane Fonda

Though the stunning legendary actress had numerous fashion moments in the past – this year’s red carpet was not one of them. Her hot pink long-sleeved dress paired with a silver clutch was quite late to try something new. Neither her hairstyle nor her jewelry helped her look.


Amanda Crew

Amanda Crew opted for a sheer Michael Cingo gown and slicked back bun. The floor-trailing hem featured beading that brightens from silver to yellow.
