Now that the VMA chatter has subsided the Emmy conversation is rising.

Tonight (Aug 25) the 66th annual Emmy's will air on NBC. The stars of primetime television will invade the Nokia Theatre, LA's red carpet to find out which deserving recipients will make their way to the podium and accept their nomination.

And like the years past we're expecting Hollywood's elite in gorgeous gowns and fitted tuxedos. Unlike last night's "come as you are" fashion mindset, the ladies and gents are aware of the elegant fashion statement they are expected to sashay down the fashion line in. Before we bring out our note pads and take fashion tips, lets take a look at the years prior. From Kerry's pre baby look to her Sofia Vergara's voluptuous painted on floor lengths, take a look at the best Emmy red carpet fashion.
