Who wore what at the Emmys

Minimalist and embellished gowns dominated the red carpet at the 67th Primetime Emmy Awards on Sunday, although there were some questionable dresses that should never see the light of day again.

Best dressed

Louise Roe: The English television presenter, who is helming reality TV show Fit For Fashion, is a sleek vision in white, keeping the sparkle to her accessories - barely there rings, bracelet and clutch.

Maisie Williams: Game Of Thrones' tomboy Maisie Williams dials up her sweetheart quotient in this pink dress and fluffy white heels befitting her 18 years of age.

Lena Headey: Two months after giving birth to her second child, Headey, who stars in Game Of Thrones, shows off her post-baby body in this glittering Zuhair Murad halter-neck gown.

Sofia Vergara: The Modern Family actress certainly knows how to flaunt her assets without being vulgar. This custom silver column gown by St John hugs her killer curves to great effect.

Kerry Washington: The star of the hit television series Scandal caused a mini-scandal of her own when she wore this Marc Jacobs dress, which debuted barely a week ago at New York Fashion Week. It is from the designer's Spring 2016 collection.

Regina King: One of the most- talked-about stars at the moment, King, who won best supporting actress in a limited series or movie for American Crime, wore a heavily beaded gown with an interesting bell-shaped silhouette.

Worst dressed

Julianne Hough: More trick than treat, the two-time champion of Dancing With The Stars looks a bit too excited about Halloween in this dress by Marchesa.

Heidi Klum: The supermodel falls on the wrong side of her popular Project Runway quote: One day you're in, the next day you're out. We hope she gets it right the next time.

Naomi Grossman: The actress, who stars in American Horror Story, justifies the need for an intervention in this sheer dress.

Nazanin Boniadi: The Iranian-born actress, who stars in next year's period epic Ben-Hur, commits a fashion faux pas in this shapeless white fabric that does nothing for her figure.
