When I think about the Primetime Emmy Awards, I remember who wore what a lot better than who won what. I love this night in particular because the attending celebs tend to be a little looser, a little edgier with their choices than if it were the Oscars. Sometimes it pays off, big. There have been occasions where a dress was so stunning that it completely changed the trajectory of a starlet’s career — see Olivia Wilde in the gallery below. And then there are the unfortunate moments when a stylist must have called in sick and a fashion-challenged actor faced the flashbulbs and the worst dressed list simultaneously. If we’re lucky, this year’s 65th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards will give us something to talk about for years to come. And just so we have some basis of comparison, here’s a look back at some of the most memorable outfits to walk down the Emmy’s red carpet.
