The stars flooded Microsoft Theater in downtown Los Angeles to honor the best of the small screen Sunday night for the 67th Annual Primetime Emmys. In case you missed Ryan Seacrest’s 35 reminders per minute, it was hot outside—as in 100 degrees hot—but that didn’t stop Hollywood from donning designer duds and posing for the shutterbugs on the red carpet. The Orange is the New Black crew popped in colorful gowns, others like Kerry Washington sparkled and Lady Gaga left her egg at home in favor of a stunning (and normal) floor-length black gown. Here are our picks from last night’s 10 best dressed with commentary from the Twittersphere.

Scandal star Kerry Washington lived up to her billing as one of Hollywood’s most stylish leading ladies in a metallic-lace Marc Jacobs dress with a mid-calf hemline that was on the New York Fashion Week Runway about three days before. Clearly when you’re Kerry Washington, you don’t have to wait for a dress like this. She loved every minute of wearing it.
Orphan Black’s Tatiana Maslany reminded us of two things Sunday night: 1. You can wear white after Labor Day. 2. Women in suits on the red carpet are so refreshing. The first-time nominee showed just the right amount of skin in the plunging Bouchra Jarrar pantsuit. The shiny low pony kept the look chic and polished, the bright lipstick popped against the neutral palette and those heels are just plain fierce.
Taylor Schilling & Laverne Cox
We’re so used to seeing the Orange is the New Black ladies in beige tops and bottoms and as little makeup as the set lights will allow, so it’s always fun to see their personal styles. Taylor Schilling wore an eye-popping canary Stella McCartney gown with a peplum hemline, and Laverne Cox’s pretty teal Calvin Klein Collection dress hugged in all the right places. The duo had more than just their glamorous looks to cheer about Sunday. Co-star Uzo Aduba (Crazy Eyes) went home with a trophy for Supporting Actress in a Drama.

Taraji P. Henson
On screen, January Jones took us back to the 1950s in Mad Men. Her teal Ulyana Sergeenko strapless jumpsuit was a little bit 1970s and every bit 2015. It earned her major props from Entertainment Tonight’s Nancy O’Dell.
Naomi Watts’s dress came from Dior’s 2012 collection, but the multi-pattern embellishments and midi length were completely on-trend.
