Emmys 2016: the biggest stars in TV hit the red carpet

The Emmys - the biggest night in television - began with a big, sparkly bang on the red carpet.

Claire Danes, Sarah Paulson, Sofia Vergara and many more came out in gowns dripping with sequins and glitter. 

Meanwhile others embraced all sorts of asymmetric shapes, with Sarah Hyland working a pair of black cigarette trousers with a trailing top and Priyanka Chopra twirling in a one-shoulder number.

A special mention has to go to Kerry Washington - the queen of red carpet perfection - (who is pregnant with her second child) who opted for a cut-out black gown. 

No longer is the Oscars the only greatest night in red carpet fashion. As the golden age of the small-screen continues to dominate our time, so does it in the style stakes.

Take a look at who wore what at the LA awards ceremony on Sunday night.
