Mommy-to-be and nominee Kerry Washington (one of our Best Dressed) has her beauty look handled. (How could she not?!) Makeup artist Carola Gonzalez was inspired by Washington’s hair giving off major ’70s vibes, so she decided to complement this look with a double-line eye liner and full lashes. The pregnancy glow is real though, so Washington left her skin as is (with a bit of help from Neutrogena’s Hydro Boost Water Gel in Extra Dry) and decided to focus on a major hair moment tonight, letting her ringlets hang in all of their glory. To keep curls like this pristine and hydrated, spritz a nourishing spray like TIGI Bed Head Foxy Curls Hi-Def Curl Spray

before heading out for the evening.) Oh and did we mention her fierce mani, too? Talk about handled.
Sleek ponytails only seem like an easy out. While simple to style, Chopra’s look is actually incredibly polished, especially if you apply an oil like Dove Regenerative Nourishment Serum-in-Oil
to seal the cuticle before stepping out. Chopra’s long tail is as fluid as her red gown —and her coordinating red lips are old-Hollywood, screen-siren sexy.
Bombshell Emily Ratajkowski opted for a sophisticated, sleek style—a far cry from the sartorial drama she stirred up recently with a barely-there dress from her last red-carpet appearance. Tonight, on the arm of Zac Posen, she wore a navy gown from the designer and matched her makeup to her look. The heavy, almost messy turquoise-and-cobalt eye makeup (a waterproof gel eye liner, like Make Up For Ever Aqua XL Eye Pencil
, will help this look last) looks incredibly chic when paired with a slicked-back ponytail. As for the total look? Totally refined.
The Game of Thrones star, who chose a slinky blush-colored column dress from Atelier Versace, went for her signature beauty look with full brows and smoky eyes, but added a glossy lip for a super-modern vibe. (Allure editors swear by Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture Vernis À Lèvres Glossy Stain in Rebel Nudes

, which gives you a glaze without the stickiness.) For her modern bun, hairstylist Adir Abergel worked

through damp hair before styling for added hold and structure.
Orange Is The New Black star Laverne Cox was the epitome of a golden goddess on the red carpet. Cox opted for bright gold eye shadow with a matte black shadow in the crease to add definition, topping it off with crisp dark eyeline and mascara. She accentuated her glimmering Naeem Khan gown with a metallic bronzed lip and loose, barrel-style curls. (This T3 Whirl Trio Interchangeable Styling Wand
is basically your solution to achieving your style, but Kiyah Wright, Clairol Professional celebrity stylist ambassador, says a spritz of hairspray, of course.) The icing on the cake, though, was the pair of glimmering, icy Butani and Hearts on Fire diamond earrings she sported.
Keri Russell’s old Hollywood-inspired waves (courtesy of Suave Professionals) were the definition of simple glamour.
Sophie Turner stepped on the red carpet with a romantic loose fishtail style fit for a GOT princess. The majestic waves that fall into her braid can be recreated with a sea salt-infused spray like Not Your Mother’s Beach Babe Soft Waves Sea Salt Spray
. Her neutral-toned makeup adds depth to her features without taking away from the epically long braid.

America Ferrera played up her natural beauty by focusing on her finest features—namely, her long, shiny hair and deep brown eyes. With voluminous waves (a great texturizing spray like Living Proof Full Dry Volume Blast
will help with hold all night long) and a super-smoky eye, the 2016 Emmys presenter and Superstore star complemented her smoldering makeup with a body-con, black sequin jumpsuit from Jenny Packham. (Seriously though, can we borrow that jumpsuit some time?)
Tracee Ellis Ross
Tracee Ellis Ross is already a winner in our eyes, but what we loved about Ross’s look was how she totally stepped away from her signature curls. Instead of going wild and free, Ross put her locks into a sleek bun that mirrored the sleekness of the cutouts in her white gown. (A pomade will help slick down cowlicks, kinks and curls, like Sally Hershberger 24K Vanity Hair Shaping Balm
.) To keep the look light, the Emmy nominee gently accented her dark brown eyes with a splash of dusty rose across her lids with a swipe of Burt’s Bees Lipstick in Suede Splash across her pout.

Talk about fall hair goals. Emmy nominee Constance Zimmer showed up to the red carpet with a freshly shorn bob and blunt bangs, a shorter style than we’ve recently seen from the Unreal star. Wearing a white-and-electric-pink Monique Lhuillier gown, Zimmer accessorized with a matching, equally chic fuchsia clutch and a vibrant lip. (Smear on a coating of Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid Lipstick in Electric Pink for a similar look.) Besides, who says you can’t rock bright florals in the fall?
Less is always more with Tori Kelly—a natural beauty in her own right—except when it comes to her hair, of course. And nothing screams Emmy-stage debut like voluminous Hollywood-glam waves paired with a classic LBD. The Veronica Lake-esque style can stay put on even the straightest of locks if you set the style with a finishing spray like our Best of Beauty 2016-winning Nexxus Comb Thru Finishing Mist
With the help of La Prairie (we’re obsessed with the luxe line), Julia Louis-Dreyfuss sported an ageless glow. Her miracle skin product? The La Prairie Skin Caviar Essence-in-Lotion
, which creates a smooth surface for makeup application.
As for her hair, “upon seeing the gorgeous Carolina Herrera gown, we decided [her style] needed to be somewhat easy, playful, and with a bit of whimsy,” says Matthew Monzon, her stylist. The key product was StriVectin Hair Max Volume Root Lifting Spray ($26), which helped the volume last all night long—even through her superemotional speech.
