The Emmys are coming! That's right, this Monday, August 25, the 66th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards will air on NBC. For us, though, the best part of any awards night is the red carpet — it's rife with amazing wedding-worthy inspiration!

Last year's awards season was no exception. Glowing stars like Kerry Washington (who got married shortly after and then had a baby!) rocked an ethereal Marchesa gown with three-dimensional floral appliqués. Claire Danes also stepped up her red carpet game in a cream, sequin-studded, A-line Armani Privé gown with one of our favorite bridal trends, a deep V-neck. The Emmys give a chance for television's best to bring their fashion A-game, and they never disappoint.

Of course, other award shows served up some serious big-day inspiration too. A slew of gorgeous celebs rocked ivory, metallic, and white gowns on the Oscar red carpet this year. Whether it was newcomer Margot Robbie's white, gem-encrusted sheath, Maria Menounos's shimmering Johanna Johnson cap-sleeve stunner, or Naomi Watts's glistening Calvin Klein column gown there were plenty of dresses to emulate.

Take a look back at Cate Blanchett's show-stopping Georgio Armmani embellished gown, Kate Hudson's plunging white Versace (with a cape!), and engaged Angelina Jolie's beaded Elie Saab gown in our roundup of the most wedding-worthy red carpet dresses and get ready to see some more at this year's Emmys!
