The Emmy nominees have been announced, and while we're thrilled that some of our favorite shows were recognized, we're more excited to see what some of our favorite starlets will wear Aug. 25. From Kate Mara in her effortlessly cool ensembles to Taylor Schilling with her sophisticated style, here are the top five actresses we're looking forward to seeing on the carpet at the 66th annual Emmy Awards.
The Masters of Sex star, nominated for lead actress in a drama, has been turning heads for her ensembles of late, from the Valentino gown at this year's Critics’ Choice Television Awards (right) to the strapless patterned Roksanda Ilincic frock at the Masters of Sex screening in L.A. (left). With power stylist Ilaria Urbinati by Caplan's side, we have no doubt the actress will bring her A-game to this year's Emmy red carpet.
Much like her Downton Abbey character Lady Mary, the actress (nominated for lead actress in a drama) always manages to grace the red carpet with elegance. Hey, when you've got power stylist Micaela Erlanger helping you get ready for the carpet, the results are usually flawless.
Mara, nominated for guest actress in a drama for her role in House of Cards, never fails to look effortlessly cool. From her Valentino couture gown at this year's Met Gala (right) to the Valentino minidress she wore to the Transcendence L.A. premiere (left), Mara's outfits are the epitome of laid-back elegance. We're expecting similar stylish results at this year's Emmys. We'll be looking forward to seeing what power stylist Johnny Wujek whips up.
Olivia Pope, er, Kerry Washington helped set the new standard of how mama-to-be style should be done this past awards season. Since giving birth to her baby girl in April, the nominated Scandal actress has returned to the carpet looking like a total babe. That Dolce & Gabbana floral mini from the BET Awards? Love. And of course, it helps that power stylist Erin Walsh is all about pushing the envelope with her clients on the carpet.
Whether it's attending the White House Correspondents' Dinner or arriving for a premiere, the Orange Is the New Black actress keeps it sophisticated with a touch of sexiness on the carpet. We'll be waiting to see what power stylist Penny Lovell has in store for the nominated star.
