The red carpet for TV’s big night featured glitter, gold, and skin for miles. We pick the hits (Drew Barrymore, Tina Fey, Kaley Cuoco) and who flirted with getting canceled (Leighton Meester, Elisabeth Moss, Kristen Wiig)
Drew Barrymore What's blush and bashful? The Grey Gardens nominee and her devastatingly romantic Monique Lhuillier confection of a gown.

Blake Lively In a Versace slit down to there (and up to almost there), Lively definitely couldn't be called subtle. But at least the girl commits, adding a Princess Leia braid to complete her red-hot for the red carpet look.

Leighton Meester Might this be one from Mama Waldorf's closet? Because dowdy isn't a word we'd expect to use in conjunction with Meester, who has sometimes delighted, sometimes puzzled, but always challenged red-carpet-watchers over the past year ... until now.

Olivia Wilde The riskiest look to walk the red carpet, Wilde's Marchesa (fresh from Fashion Week) had us intrigued on first sight, with a split as wide as the San Andreas fault fracturing the otherwise fairytale gown. But when the House star turned to reveal nothing but net — and a creepy nude zipper stretching up her spine — we lost some love for the look.
Chloë Sevigny We can always expect the unexpected from Sevigny (and often it involves shorts). Thankfully, this time the Big Love star brought just the right amount of unorthodox — polka dots! — wrapped in a still-chic silhouette to the Emmy carpet.

Tina Fey Yes, it would be great if the 30 Rock mastermind decided to wear a color for once (and silver, while lovely, doesn't count). But we guess it's time to give up that fight, and give into the sophisticated cut and drape of Fey's Gucci gown.
Red can be a difficult color to pull off on the red carpet, because one can become obfuscated. This sublime column with its one-shoulder neckline is a perfect collaboration between Debra Messing and Michael Kors.

Elisabeth Moss Oh, Peggy, we want to love you, but the drab color and draping/wrinkling of this Reem Acra just makes it so hard.
