Emmy Awards 2016: Dresses That Stole the Show

One of the biggest television award function, the 68th Annual Emmy Awards, aired on ABC and it was as if everything in the world had come to a momentary halt as the fans were glued to the TV to watch their favourite stars walk the red carpet, win awards and celebrate their victories. Apart watching the stars receive awards for their respective fields, the other thing that the fans looked forward to were the appearance of their favourite actors and actresses.

Here is a list of 10 actresses who donned beautiful gowns and set the red carpet on fire with all their sass.

1. Emilia Clarke

Queen Daenerys Targaryen from the famous television series written by R.R. Martin, The Game of Thrones, showed up at the beige Atelier Versace. No effort was required by her to pull of this elegant look.



2. Claire Danes

Although her fake tan may have received mixed reviews, the shimmery golden floor length Schiaparelli gown that she wore had the paparazzi turning heads. She even showed off her dress to give the fans a little peek of what the dress looked like from the back. Some claimed that the actress from the TV show Homeland who was also nominated this year for Outstanding Lead Actress, looked a little like the Emmy Award herself.
