The red carpet at tonight’s Emmy Awards contained very few duds and a whole lot of “dayum!” Underdog and relative red carpet rookie Aubrey Plaza took our crown for Best Dressed in her Juan Carlos Obando white gown and retro fabulous hair. The Vampire Diaries‘ Nina Dobrev was a close runner-up in a dramatic, hourglass supreme Donna Karan. Best Actress in a Comedy Series winner Julie Bowen dazzled in an uber deep v-neck Oscar De La Renta and we loved Amy Poehler‘s unique Peter Som navy frock.
Star of tomorrow and Best Dressed honorable mention Kiernan Shipka confirmed she will essentially be a teenager by the time Mad Men returns in an adorable metallic dress and glittery heels. Check out our 15 Best Dressed at the 2011 Emmys below! [Photos: Getty Images]
Despite withdrawal shakes looming for Monday morning, we’re counting the minutes to the season 4 finale of Mad Men. For the last 12 weeks, we’ve looked forward to 10PM EST every Sunday, when we unabashedly gaze at the beauty and talent that is Jon Hamm, January Jones, Christina Hendricks and Elisabeth Moss. The critically-acclaimed and audience-adored show has launched these four actors, among others, from unrecognizable to A-List. From commercials and guest spots to blockbusters and glamorous gowns, the stars of Mad Men have hit the big time.
With its spotlight rookies, Mad Men also hosts some onscreen vets like John Slattery, Robert Morse, and Cara Buono. Where were they before the mod offices of Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce? Check out our before and after gallery to find out. [Photos: Getty Images, Disney]
