Who wore what (and WTF) at the Emmy Awards 2017.

Best: Nicole Kidman

Nicole very rarely takes a step wrong on the red carpet, and last night was no different.

WORST: Debra Messing

While the shape of Debra's dress is stunning, the material too closely resembles a Quality Street wrapper.

BEST: Priyanka Chopra

Priyanka's Balmain gown brought edge and elegance to the red carpet.

BEST: Jesse Tyler Ferguson

Jesse Tyler Ferguson looks smart and stylish in his emerald green and black tux.

BEST: Sarah Paulson

Sarah's Carolina Herrera gown shouldn't work, but somehow it does.

WORST: Ariel Winter

Ariel's bold style is one of the reason's why we love her, but this dress doesn't do her any favours.

BEST: Thandie Newton

Thandie proves that sometimes less is more - even when it comes to red carpet dressing.

BEST: Sofia Vergara

The Modern Family star is the definition of a Hollywood siren in this figure-hugging gown.

BEST: Shailene Woodley

Shailene is our best dressed of the entire night in this plunging Ralph Lauren dress.

WORST: Sarah Hyland

Take away the floral, beach cover up-style print and this would have been a winner.

BEST: Jessica Biel

Jessica is the definition of show-stopping in this silver and nude gown.

BEST: Reese Witherspoon

The Big Little Lies actress took a chance in this blazer dress - and it paid off.

BEST: Viola Davis

Viola is simply breathtaking in this autumn-appropriate dress.

BEST: Milo Ventimiglia

Need we explain?

WORST: Heidi Klum

Even Heidi's newly released clothing range for Lidl looks better than this dress. Harsh? Maybe. True? Without a doubt.

BEST: Gina Rodriguez

Jane the Virgin star Gina knows how to nail classic red carpet dressing without being boring.

BEST: Lea Michele

Lea's glittering purple gown earned her a well-deserved place on the best dressed list.

BEST: Uzo Aduba

Uzo's Tina Turner-esque dress is fun and glamorous at the same time.

WORST: Felicity Huffman

The shape and cut of Felicity's dress is stunning, but the too-pale colour and heavy lace takes over. - and not in a good way.

BEST: Mandy Moore

Mandy Moore returning to the spotlight has been one of the best things to happen in 2017.

BEST: Jane Fonda

At 79-years-old, Jane Fonda needs to tell us her secret to looking so good.
