2012 Emmy Awards: Best And Worst Dressed On The Red Carpet

The 64th Emmy Awards has come and gone, but we wouldn't let go without analyzing the fashion hits and misses on the red carpet...

The Emmys wouldn't be the Emmys without at least one Alec Baldwin sighting. The "30 Rock" actor was all smiles as he stepped out with gorgeous wife Hilaria.

Move over Angelina Jolie. There's a new starlet in town who's not afraid to flash a little leg. Alexandra Breckenridge of "American Horror Story" strikes a fierce pose in a slinky black gown.
Does Allison Williams' green Oscar de la Renta gown remind anyone else of the "Wizard of Oz"? The "Girls" star looks like she's off to Emerald City, not the Emmys.

That's one way to make a comeback! Appearing on the red carpet for the first time since announcing her split from husband Will Arnett, Amy Poehler appears smiling and drama-free in a plunging black dress by Stella McCartney.

"Veep" star Anna Chlumsky went for a slightly risque look in a dress by Christian Siriano, pairing black lace over a nude-colored slip.

Archie Panjabi of "The Good Wife" turns heads in an aquamarine number by Randi Rahm.

... Although props go to Gould's "Modern Family" co-star Ariel Winter, who looks far more mature than her 14 years let on in this patterned gown by designer Katharine Kidd.

Ashley Judd goes for pretty in pink in this body-hugging fuschia gown by Carolina Herrera, but her teased-up poof is something we'd expect from Snooki, not an Emmy-nominated actress. The star was up for Outstanding Actress in a TV Movie/Miniseries for her role in "Missing."


Brooke Burke puts her toned arms and enviable curves on display in this beautiful ivory number ...

She has a signature style and she's sticking to it! Christina Hendricks puts her famous curves to work (again) in a form-fitting beige gown by Christian Siriano.

Christine Baranski is definitely a knockout in this look-at-me gold minidress.

Baby bump alert! Claire Danes flaunted her growing tummy in a bright and bold dress by Lanvin -- as well as a brand new Emmy award to add to her collection. The "Homeland" star won Best Actress in a Drama Series.

Er, Edie Falco seems to teeter dangerously close to a wardrobe malfunction in the two-toned illusion dress by Stella McCartney.

We're still getting used to Elisabeth Moss' platinum pixie cut, but we love the "Mad Men" star's strapless number by Dolce and Gabbana.

If there was one couple we wish we could tag along with on the red carpet, it would be Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi. Don't they look like they're having a blast?

Emily VanCamp should seek "Revenge" on whatever stylist picked out this colorless J. Mendel creation. The cut does nothing to flatter her amazing figure.

"Once Upon a Time," Ginnifer Goodwin draped herself in a set of dining room curtains and called it a dress. We normally love the star's red carpet style, but this orange gown by Monique Lhuiller overpowers her petite figure.

She's a host on E! and "Fashion Police," so it only makes sense that Giuliana Rancic knows how to cause a fashion commotion on the red carpet. The new hot mama makes black look anything but boring in this gown by Romana Keveza.
We can always count on Sofia Vergara to amp up the va-va-voom factor on the red carpet. The "Modern Family" star, named the highest paid actress on TV by Forbes, dazzled in a glittering, emerald green gown by designer Zuhair Murad, finishing off the look with an arm full of diamonds by Neil Lane.

You can't win them all, Glenn Close. We're going to chalk this one up as a red carpet miss.

Hayden Panettiere looks like she's heading to a really fancy toga party in this Grecian-inspired Marchesa creation.

Why stop at one thigh-high slit when you've got the gams for two? Red carpet glamazon Heidi Klum flaunted her supermodel legs in a flowing, seafoam green couture gown by Alexander Vauthier.

Always something of a fashion risk-taker when it comes to the red carpet, January Jones goes for gothic glam with a show-stopping black gown by Zac Posen.

Jena Malone rocks this season's hottest color, oxblood, in an intricately woven J. Mendel creation.

Don't let her red carpet outfit deceive you. There's nothing shady about Jessica Lange, who took home the Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actress for "American Horror Story."

We're absolutely "Mad" about this one-shouldered Jason Wu dress "Mad Men" star Jessica Pare wore on the red carpet. Simply stunning!

It looks like seafoam on the red carpet is one trend that's here to stay. Julianne Hough flaunts her curves in a dramatic, flared-out mermaid dress.

It takes a brave woman to wear that much yellow, but Julianne Moore already proved she's one gutsy gal when she took on Sarah Palin in "Game Change." The star, who wore Dior haute couture, took home Best Actress in a TV Movie/Miniseries.

Go bold or go home! "Modern Family" star Julie Bowen did what few other women can do -- she wore chartreuse on the red carpet and made it look amazing. Oh, and she won the Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy. Overall, a good night.

Kaley Cuoco makes a "Big Bang" in a lemon yellow dress by Angel Sanchez.

We have to hand it to Kat Dennings. The girl knows how to work her best, er, assets. The "Two Broke Girls" star certainly stands out on the red carpet while simultaneously managing to blend in with her matching scarlet dress by J. Mendel.

There's nothing scary about this gorgeous, beaded Badgley Mischka gown Kate Mara wore to the Emmys, but would it kill the "American Horror Story" actress to smile?

Looks like life on the D-List is working out after all for comedienne Kathy Griffin, who looked gorgeous in a billowing black gown.

Fall's hottest trend? Matching your hair color to your dress. Still, we're not sure the "Fashion Police" would have anything mean to say about Kelly Osbourne's stunning purple gown by Zac Posen.

Kerry Washington's tactic for winning an Emmy award? Blind out the competition with a crazy sparkly dress. The "Scandal" star, who wore Vivienne Westwood, was one of the many celebrity presenters to take the stage at the 64th annual Emmy Awards.


Thigh's the limit for Lara Spencer, who donned this one-shouldered beaded applique dress by Badgley Mischka to the Emmy Awards after viewers voted for what she should wear on "Good Morning America."

Lucy Liu is apparently going for disco ball-chic in this heavy-looking metallic Versace dress. Seriously, that can't be comfortable.

Maria Menounos plays it safe at the Emmy Awards, choosing a simple yet chic cornflower blue dress that shows off her gorgeous neckline.


Is she wearing a bustle? "Downton Abbey" star Michelle Dockery obviously takes Victorian period acting very seriously.

Padma Lakshmi is a vision in orange in this floor-length tangerine gown by Monique Lhuillier.

 Phoebe Price looks like she's off to the prom!

We're not sure how Ricky Gervais managed to score such a red-hot lady, but he and girlfriend Jane Fallon make an adorable pair together at the Emmy Awards.

Tina Fey has definitely upped her red carpet style over the years. The "30 Rock" star nailed it this year in a maroon column gown by Vivienne Westwood that perfectly accentuated her hourglass shape.

 Tom Hanks and wife Rita Wilson make a picture perfect couple on the red carpet ... as always.
"Girls" star Zodia Mamet goes to take the plunge in this black and white dress, but we're more distracted by the gown's awkward fit.

Alright Zooey Deschanel. We get it. You're quirky and cute and have perfect red carpet style. Is there anything you can't do? The "New Girl" star looks positively ethereal in this gauzy, ice blue dress by Reem Acra.
