Published 26/08/2014 | 15:36

You can practically feel awards season just around the corner.

The 2014 Emmy Awards saw Hollywood's best dressed TV stars descend on the red carpet in their finest couture.

From Burberry, Prabal Gurung and even some Irish designers, the Emmys certainly didn't disappoint in the style stakes.

Watch above as Independent.ie’s Style Jury discuss the best and worst dressed on the night.

Red was undoubtedly THE fashion colour of the night on the 2014 Emmy's red carpet.

'Mad Men' star January Jones stole the show in a stunning strapless Prabal Gurung gown with a voluminous, regal skirt , shorter at the front. The dress with architectural angles was trimmed in black and matched her sharp, quirky fringe.

Former supermodel Heidi Klum arrived wearing coral red Zac Posen .. and the ultimate accessory was to bring the designer along with her instead of a clutch.

Her column dress with sophisticated train and draped back was a total hit in contrast with her 2013 choice of a Versace dress which was slammed by the fashion police last year.
