The 73rd Primetime Emmy Awards took place at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles hosted by comedian Cedric the Entertainer.

Last year's event was held virtually under unprecedented conditions due to Covid-19, and now that we're all embracing the vaccine (hopefully), red carpet events are getting back in full swing IRL.

Last week, we saw stars come out in their designer frocks on the VMA and Met Gala red carpets. This week, the Emmys are here to keep us thoroughly satisfied with the fashion inspo we've been craving for so long.

This year, the Emmy red carpet served up various looks, but the classic evening gown seemed to be the main dish. 

Here are the looks we relished:
