The Primetime Emmys are one of the biggest nights in television and always bring out A+ fashion. So who dressed the best and whose looks fell flat at the 2021 show on Sept. 19? Wonderwall.com rounded up the biggest fashion hits and misses of the night, starting with this star… One of our least favorite looks of the evening came from Gillian Anderson. The star of "The Crown" (and winner of the best supporting actress in a drama prize) rocked these strange custom Chloe coordinates. Comprised of ivory-hued silk, the cropped top featured lengthy tassels that flowed over the matching floor-length skirt, which also included a fringed hemline to go with the bohemian aesthetic. And you'll never believe what was going on with those tassels! (Get a a better view next!)

Gillian Anderson's Chloe crop top featured numerous beaded tassels that flowed off the hemline. As for the beads — which the fashion house described as "miscellaneous metallic elements sourced from a traditional Parisian jewelry supplier's deadstock" — well… several of them were shaped like male genitalia, which Chloe creative director Gabriela Hearst gleefully pointed out on Instagram. Though this selection was certainly unique, it felt like an oddly casual pick for such an important night. Now take a closer look to see if you can spot any of the naughty beads in the next photo…
We see it now! Check out that bead just above Gillian Anderson's left hand.

Keri Russell's gorgeous Zuhair Murad gown featured incredible embellishing, a plunging neckline, a center slit and, most notably, a stunning cape-like detail complete with feathered trim.
We typically adore Angela Bassett's bold fashion choices, but this one missed the mark. Her black-and-pink Greta Constantine design involved a cool color combo, but that over-the-top pink ruffle in the shape of a question mark was just too overwhelming to focus on much else.
Kerry Washington stepped out in this slinky silver number by Etro. We loved the thin straps, corset-style bodice and mermaid-style skirt, complete with a train. Check out her gorgeous earrings next…
Kerry Washington accessorized her slinky Etro gown with diamond drop earrings from De Beers.

When it came time to pick a dress for the Emmys, nominee Elizabeth Olsen kept things in the family! The star donned this white gown from her twin sisters' line, The Row, for the big occasion. Though we love the sweet family connection, we were hoping for more from the frock, which included three-quarter-length sleeves and a low neckline. Despite the dull dress, she stepped things up when it came time to add jewels…
Elizabeth Olsen's The Row dress may have disappointed, but check out those stunning drop earrings! The actress rocked phenomenal diamond earrings by Chopard on Emmy night.
Yikes! Emma Corrin certainly made a statement at the London Emmys celebration in this bizarre Miu Miu creation. The entirely pale yellow ensemble included a simple strapless frock, over-the-elbow gloves with the tips cut off, and a… bonnet? A swim cap? Let's take a closer look…
Emma Corrin accessorized their pale yellow Miu Miu getup with the weirdest headwear of the night: a frills-free bonnet. But that wasn't her only unique accessory…
Emma Corrin also added tipless gloves that allowed her razor-sharp black manicure to peek out. Next!
One of our favorite looks of the night came from Anya Taylor-Joy! The star of "The Queen's Gambit" arrived in a show-stopping look from Christian Dior — a champagne-hued gown that was beautiful on its own, but when paired with an over-the-top golden shawl (complete with a train!), the ensemble was elevated to the next level. We're going to need to see this one from a few angles…
First up? A look at Anya Taylor-Joy's dreamy Christian Dior combo from behind! Her statement shawl included a perfect circular train that made for a memorable red carpet moment. Now let's take a closer look…
Anya Taylor-Joy's champagne halter-style gown was entirely backless, so posing this way with the shawl was a great move to show off the full beauty of that frock.
Anya Taylor-Joy completed her bold and beautiful Emmys look with a glamorous bun, a bold red lip and stunning jewels from Tiffany & Co.
Sarah Paulson is a fashion-hit fixture, so it's no surprise that we adored her Carolina Herrera ballgown. The rich red confection included statement sleeves that flowed to a three-quarter length, a plunging neckline and a full floor-length skirt. She wasn't the only star rocking a cheery red Carolina Herrera design…
Mandy Moore served up a serious hit in Carolina Herrera too! The actress's pick included spaghetti straps, a fitted bodice and a full skirt with ruffled tulle for a romantic and very memorable red carpet fashion moment.
We weren't wild about Cynthia Erivo's Louis Vuitton selection. The star's sleeveless white gown started out strong — with a simple bodice with a belt detail that flowed into a fitted skirt — but lost us when that skirt gave way to a bright blue, teal and silver feathered disaster. Despite the disappointing dress, Cynthia delivered when it came time to add jewelry…
Cynthia Erivo added some stunning bling from Roberto Coin to the mix. Her gorgeous choker necklace and massive diamond ring added just the right amount of sparkle to this Emmys ensemble.
Catherine O'Hara was a vision in red! The "Schitt's Creek" star sported this Cong Tri design — a one-shouldered blouse with a dramatic train that flowed into wide-legged pants in the same bold shade — making for a memorable red carpet moment.
You couldn't miss Kaley Cuoco on the red carpet — the actress arrived in an eye-catching Vera Wang creation in highlighter yellow. We loved the sweetheart neckline and center slit on this gown, and the way she paired it with perfectly matching sandals. Next up? A closer look at the details on this custom frock!
Kaley Cuoco's Vera Wang design included sweet floral embellishments along the spaghetti straps, giving the gown a more romantic feel. She rocked an updo with the bright dress and added subtle diamond drop earrings from De Beers.
Michaela Coel also rocked neon yellow on Emmys night. The star selected these Christopher John Rogers coordinates — a cropped and strapless top and a fitted skirt. While pretty from the front, this look was even better from the back…
Gorgeous! Michaela Coel's top included a big tie detail in the back, which gave this look an extra layer of drama as it provided a major train moment.
Ellen Pompeo switched things up on the Emmys red carpet, arriving in this killer jumpsuit from Elie Saab. The long-sleeved one-piece included flared pants and chic silver sequin piping for a dash of sparkle.
From the teal shade to the rich velvet fabric, we adored Jason Sudeikis's Emmys outfit choice. His standout tuxedo was by Tom Ford, and he accessorized wisely with a classic black bow tie and black boots.
Another gentleman who looked dapper in Tom Ford? Sterling K. Brown, who selected this custom tuxedo from the designer and paired it with a black bow tie and boots.
Mindy Kaling was a vision in black Carolina Herrera on Emmys night! The star's strapless confection included a massive oversized bow at the waist and a mermaid-style skirt. And when it came time to accessorize, she turned to diamonds…
Mindy Kaling added some sparkle to her black Caroline Herrera gown with jewels from De Beers. The star sported diamond earrings, a necklace and a statement ring from the jeweler.
Bowen Yang certainly arrived in style! The comedian turned up in a sleek Zegna tuxedo and really spiced things up when it came time to accessorize. Let's take a closer look…
Bowen Yang added a little bling to his Zegna tux with a cool star-shaped brooch from Tiffany & Co. crafted from 18-karat yellow gold and platinum plus diamonds. When it came time to add shoes, he went with an unexpected pick…
Check out those shoes! Bowen Yang opted for sky-high silver platform boots to go with his Zegna tux. We loved this fun and surprising addition.
Outstanding supporting actress in a comedy winner Hannah Waddingham from "Ted Lasso" arrived already looking like a winner! The actress selected a peach Christian Siriano gown with one sleeve, plenty of ruching and a train detail that trailed behind her on the red carpet.
Daniel Levy always keeps us guessing on the red carpet, so we weren't surprised to see him in this unique Valentino number. The "Schitt's Creek" star's look included a wrap blazer with a tie at the waist, pants and a dress shirt all in a bold blue shade. He kept things simple with accessories, selecting chunky black boots and his signature black-rimmed glasses to complete his ensemble.
Nope! Madeline Brewer's brown Tom Ford gown was already underwhelming, but when paired with electric blue heels, this look totally lost us.
Yara Shahidi looked gorgeous in green on the Emmys red carpet! The star's stunning tea-length Dior dress included an off-the-shoulder detail and a full skirt that showed off her brown Christian Louboutin pointy-toe pumps perfectly. And when it came to add jewelry, Yara spared no expense…
Yara Shahidi accessorized her fabulous green Dior gown with a show-stopping necklace from Cartier. The estimated retail value of that gold accessory? A cool $1 million!
Another star who looked lovely in Dior? Jurnee Smollett, who sported this romantic ruffled strapless confection with a tiered ruffled skirt on Emmys night. Equally stellar? Her styling choices — a sleek updo, a diamond necklace and a dramatic dark lip.
Olivia Colman underwhelmed in this orange-and-black Roksanda frock. The silhouette included short sleeves and a cape-like detail we liked, but that midi-length skirt is where this one went wrong in our opinion.
Looking dapper, Kenan Thompson! The "Saturday Night Live" star arrived in one of the prettiest tuxedos of the night — this sharp pink number. He added even more pink to the mix with his darling bow tie, which matched the lapels of his tux perfectly, then finished things off with black dress shoes.
Missing Coachella? Aidy Bryant arrived in an outfit and flower crown fit for a music festival! The star's olive green Simone Rocha gown was lovely — check out the floral embellishments! — but the length and accessories made it feel a little too casual for Emmys night.
Jennifer Coolidge kept things sleek and sophisticated in navy blue! The star's Christian Siriano gown included a chic cape detail and a fitted silhouette for maximum Emmys night glamour.
Another star whose ensemble felt a little too casual? Kathryn Hahn. The strapless black Lanvin design included an oversized belt detail and skinny ankle-length pants, all of which underwhelmed on such a big night.
Pretty in purple! Nicole Byer wowed in this phenomenal purple ballgown. The unexpected off-the-shoulder neckline, ruffled tulle border and stunning full skirt all helped cement this look as a dreamy hit.
The men really stepped it up at the Primetime Emmys this year! Best actor in a drama winner Josh O'Connor arrived in this sharp-looking custom tux by Loewe. And when it came time to add a tie, the star of "The Crown" opted for an unconventional choice…
We loved Josh O'Connor's unique accessory choice! He added a fabric flower-embellished bolo-style tie to his custom Loewe suit for an unexpected addition that stood out on the red carpet.
We weren't wild about Beanie Feldstein's shimmery Brandon Maxwell dress. Though the salmon shade was pretty, the short sleeves, belt detail and midi-length made this frock feel too casual for such a big night. Despite not liking her outfit choice, we did appreciate those metallic peep-toe Christian Louboutins.
Winner Jean Smart kept things elegant in Ralph Lauren on Emmy night. The star's black frock included a high neck, long sheer sleeves and a floor-length silhouette, all amounting to an understated yet classically glamorous fashion moment.
The typically stylish Tracee Ellis Ross selected this red Valentino design on Emmys night. Though the shade was pretty — and very popular! — the one-shouldered and otherwise simple silhouette was surprisingly subdued coming from the fashionista. Though her red gown wasn't out of this world, her jewelry was pretty fabulous. Get a better view next…
Tracee Ellis Ross accessorized her Valentino gown with chunky bracelets and multiple rings from Tiffany & Co.
Emerald Fennell's whimsical style always makes for fun red carpet moments, and her Emmys pick was no different! The star's fun Valentino gown included sparkly embellishments, a tinge of neon and plenty of hearts that we adored.
Snore! Rita Wilson didn't dress to impress at the Emmys. The star showed up in this dull Tom Ford getup — a blazer, a sequined top and trousers — and seriously underwhelmed.
Cecily Strong made a serious fashion statement in a black dress by Azzaro that was anything but boring. Her long-sleeved sleek frock included a plunging neckline, a thigh-high slit and a subtle train that all added up to the perfect amount of drama. She accessorized with a ring by Zarianas and drop diamond earrings by Gismondi1754 to complete her pretty Emmys getup.
Beth Behrs arrived in this shimmering gown fit for a princess. The Georges Hobeika dress included sparkly embellishments in an asymmetrical pattern across the neckline, a thigh-high slit and a full skirt with an over-the-top train.
As always, Billy Porter served up a look that was anything but boring on the red carpet. We weren't wild about his black Ashi Studio ensemble — which included over-the-top structured wings — but we did appreciate the jewels he added to his crazy getup…
Billy Porter was dripping in diamonds! He sported a diamond and emerald necklace from Lorraine Schwartz and numerous rings from H. Crowne.
Karamo Brown kept things super classic in this stunning velvet tuxedo. He paired the ensemble with a bow tie and heeled dress shoes for a perfect Emmys look.
