At the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles Monday night (September 12), stars, writers and producers arrived in style for the 74th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards. Some ultimately flopped, fashion-wise. Meanwhile, others brought a new level of class and sophistication to the red carpet. There will be many losers and only a few winners tonight, and the same goes for the red carpet attendees.
See below our ranking of the 2022 Emmys red carpet from worst to best:
The Late Show with Stephen Colbert writer and her date became walking pastel disco balls that seem to be competing for "Most Shiny" on the red carpet.
The late show writers seem to be in competition for who looks most ridiculous, and Heller thought the "Kick Me!" sign on the back of her dress was a funny move but it comes off as extremely corny.
The actor looks a little too nerdy to look cool with those flats.
Jerrod Carmichael lost his shirt and opted for a long, fur vest instead. With his white underwear peaking through, we have no choice but to dub this outfit as trashy.
Though Nicole Byer's face and hair look flawless, her outfit falls flat and lacks some much-needed accessories.
A big miss for Sarah Paulson. We hate this cut of the actress' boxy top, peplum skirt and beaded belt.

The actor's silhouette looks much too boxy and makes him look much bigger than he is.
Natasha Rothwell picked a great color for her gown, but unfortunately the puffiness of it all does nothing for her figure.
The Yellowjackets actress wore a cutout leather dress with golden accents.
We are crying that the Ozark star opted for a very boring and unflattering silhouette that her character would wear on a political campaign.
Kaley Cuoco's dress looks as if it was buzzed off in the front, giving it a mullet look.

The actress attempted an edgy look, but the pattern of her gown is just too close to that of a curtain.
The Euphoria actress' dress fell flat with this curtain-like pattern... We didn't need more of the fabric as a train.
The look would have been just perfect if it weren't for the tie-dye colored gloves, which make things look way too busy.
We love the contrasting black trim on Issa Rae's white gown, but the shape looks a little awkward.
Elle's dress is a perfect combination of edgy and glamorous, but the hair just makes her look like an old lady.
