Ever since Mad Men hit the small screen, all of the leading ladies and gents have wowed both on-screen courtesy of costume designer Janie Bryant and off-screen with their impeccable sartorial choices. With the show heading into its seventh (and final) season we’re starting to feel a bit nostalgic, which is why we’re looking back at their first-ever Emmys appearances to see just how far they’ve come — especially the youngest Mad Men member, Kiernan Shipka, who made her adorable Emmys debut at just 10 years old. Take a walk back through Mad Men memory lane by clicking through the gallery to see them at the Emmys then and now.
Kerry Washington, Christina Hendricks, Zooey Deschanel and Julia Louis-Dreyfus had one thing in common tonight: They all carried Edie Parker clutches. While we spotted most of these pieces on the red carpet — the brand’s signature acrylic style is hard to miss — we couldn’t take our eyes off the stage when Louis-Dreyfus accepted her Best Actress in a Comedy award with her Veep co-star Tony Hale snapping into character as her loyal, bag-carrying assistant Gary by holding her clutch on stage. The design you spotted on stage is the brand’s Jean style, which all four stars wore in varying sizes and colors. Why were they such a hit? Designer Brett Heyman credits their functionality. “Our unique, handmade clutches complement the gorgeous red carpet dresses without overpowering them,” said Heyman, the former Director of Public Relations for Gucci who launched her handbag line in 2010. “They are practical and roomy, but not cumbersome. But most importantly, the clutches look incredibly chic and cool! Like a piece of jewelry or wearable art.” Similar pieces are available for $995 and more at bergdorfgoodman.com.

Over the past few days, we’ve been posting sneak peeks straight from Rose Byrne‘s stylist, Penny Lovell, documenting how the duo has been prepping for the 2013 Emmy awards, and the many gowns, heels, bags, and nail polishes Lovell sent through always kept us guessing. Ultimately, Byrne and her stylist opted for a custom design by Calvin Klein for the big night, but the chic pictures Lovell snapped along the way offered no shortage of style inspiration. We even got a sneak peek at Byrne’s glam squad — hairstylist Harry Josh and makeup artist Kate Lee — who made sure her glamorous waves and berry lip were ready for her walk on the red carpet.

Guiliana Rancic showed off her $1 million Forevermark ring for two hours during the Emmys 2013 pre-show, and that was just the start of the 2013 Emmys Bling Ring. The New Girl star Zooey Deschanel matched her pale blue Chanel ring to her J.Mendel gown, while Girls star Allison Williams layered on a 19th-century Fred Leighton pink topaz rock to her cobalt Ralph Lauren look. But the biggest sparkle came from — no surprise here — Sofia Vergara, who accessorized her cherry Vera Wang dress with a 40-carat emerald ring set in platinum. She added on another 21-carat diamond and platinum ring and earrings covered in over 100 total carats of rubies, sapphires and emeralds for a total look worth over $7 million.

How long does it take for a runway look to make it to an awards show red carpet? In the case of this year’s Emmys only ten days! Kiernan Shipka (in Delpozo), Kerry Washington (in Marchesa), and Jessica Paré (in Oscar de la Renta) all wore dresses that appeared on the catwalk during the spring 2014 shows at New York Fashion Week (that’s less than two weeks ago) with Allison Williams wearing a gown that was inspired by a look supermodel Karlie Kloss wore at the Ralph Lauren show. Talk about fast fashion! Click the photo above to see the fresh-off-the-runway dresses both at the shows and on the stars.
The biggest stars in television are arriving at the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles for the 65th Annual Primetime Emmys, and we have all of the details on what they’re wearing as they make their way down the red carpet. Park and Recreations star Aubrey Plaza wore a lace Marios Schwab dress, one of the night’s presenters and New Girl actress Zooey Deschanel went for an ice blue J. Mendel blue gown, Project Runway super host Heidi Klum sparkled in a sexy pomegranate design by Versace, and Mad Men‘s Jessica Paré looked gorgeous in an Oscar de la Renta dress straight from the spring 2014 runway.

Last year, Girls star made her Emmys weekend debut with an especially big fashion moment—Oscar de la Renta dressed her exclusively. For her second go-around at tonight’s Emmys, she is confirmed to wear Ralph Lauren, though she did make sure to give a nod to who put her on the fashion map last year by wearing an Oscar de la Renta dress to yesterday’s BAFTA Tea, held at the SLS Hotel. Even better, her ODLR design was fresh off the runway — the piece just walked at New York Fashion Week the week before. “It’s just such a special treat to be able to wear it,” Williams told InStyle.com. “I thought it was appropriate for the occasion, and I really like that it’s technically a white dress with black polka dots, but it has a lot else going on.” She finished the look with Jimmy Choo shoes, a Louboutin clutch and Jacob and Co. bracelet.
