Emmy Awards 2014: Best Dressed List

EmmyAwards2014 Kerry Washington

The Emmy Awards is all about honoring  excellence in the television industry, but, of course, seeing A-list celebrities get glammed up for the red carpet is always a highlight of the night.

Kerry Washington worked the red carpet in a bold orange dress featuring an extra high slit up the front and a dark sparkle skirt peeking out from underneath. The Scandal star wore her hair straight with a middle part, debuting her new ombre hairstyle.

Orange Is the New Black star Laverne Cox wowed in white with a classically chic floor-length dress that bared just enough cleavage. She wore her chesnut locks pulled back in a bun-like style.

Blue seemed to be a popular pick for the night, as seen on Keke Palmer who looked fabulous in a cobalt blue mermaid gown with a plunging V neckline. She wore her hair pulled into a sleek braid style.
