Celebrities hit the red carpet on Monday to attend the 66th Primetime Emmy Awards, telecast live on CBS. In order to avoid competing with the VMAs on Sunday night, the network made a bold move in broadcasting the first awards show on a Monday evening since 1976, and it paid off in some of the highest ratings for the Emmys in years.
Hosted by Seth Meyers, this year's Emmys featured a controversial skit with Modern Family actress and Cover Girl spokesmodel Sofia Vergara, and a special tribute to late comic superstar Robin Williams by actor Billy Crystal.
As always, celebrities shined on the red carpet wearing creations by some of the biggest names in fashion including Givenchy, Carolina Herrera, Vera Wang, Prada, Armani and Roberto Cavalli, with nominees in the Lead Actress category consistently stopping the show on the red carpet. Here are some of our favorite Emmy fashions this year.
