  • BEST:

    Ariel Winter showed off her youthful glow with a soft pink flush of blush and matching pink lip. Makeup artist Toby Fleischman used Chanel, Laura Mercier and NARS to get the look, complete with lots of mascara (and of course a tousled updo).

  • WORST:

    Kelly Osbourne took the matchy-matchy trend seriously for the Emmys, matching her Zac Posen gown to her hair. What really did it in for us though was the red lip -- purple/grey hair, red lips and a purple dress is just too much -- there needs to be balance somewhere!

  • BEST:

    The adorable Kiernan Shipka of "Mad Men" showed off her sleek updo and natural makeup at the Emmys, keeping her outfit extremely age-appropriate.

  • BEST:

    Sofia Vergara was flawless per usual on the red carpet, with a mauve lip, extended smokey eye and loose waves.

  • WORST:

    We typically love January Jones, but this look was a bit too harsh for her features. The sleek updo and black rimmed eye paired together was too overwhelming for her petite face.

  • BEST:

    Allison Williams of "Girls" absolutely glowed with a pale pink lip, extra lashes and some dark liner. Also take note of her middle parted updo, trying out the center part trend.

  • BEST:

    Zooey Deschanel always has a retro chic look to her style, and for the Emmys she chose a voluminous updo, bright pink lips and mini TV sets on her nails.

  • BEST:

    Kate Mara's sideswept braided hairstyle and soft pink lips were the perfect compliment to her black-rimmed eyes.

  • BEST:

    Julianne Moore not only shocked us all by wearing long sleeves in the California heat, but her red lip and red hair combo was absolutely flawless.

  • WORST:

    Nicole Kidman should have worn her hair up with the busy dress that she had on -- especially in the heat. Instead it just kind of hung limp down her back -- is there anything worse?

  • BEST:

    A very pregnant Claire Danes showed that she will always look perfect no matter what, rocking a yellow Lanvin dress, glam curls and a killer smokey eye.

  • WORST:

    Oh, Ashley Judd. What animal are you hiding in that hairdo? Really. We are concerned.

  • BEST:

    Lena Dunham's makeup (done by makeup artist Jo Strettell) was stunning at the Emmys, with a dark smokey eye and nude lip. Her newly chopped pixie cut was styled with a drastic side part by Sebastian Professional stylist David Gardner to keep the focus on her eyes.

  • BEST:

    Kat Dennings may have needed a larger dress to contain her um, rather well-endowed chest, but we loved her red lip perfectly matching her red dress, with a tousled half-up hairstyle.

  • WORST:

    We think that Julianne Hough had good intentions with this retro hairstyle, but the fact that it seems to be glued to her head is just utterly disappointing.
