Picking the right gown for the red carpet can be a challenge, but these Emmy nominees always rise to the occasion  and get it right. But, in case they're having trouble choosing or just want a second opinion, we've got our eyes on these stunning dresses for them to wear come Sunday night. You can't really go wrong with Valentino, Lanvin , or Dior, right? So, consider the red carpet open — let the dress selecting begin!
The Colombian-born star of Modern Family never fails to play up her rightly famous curves. This hot-off-the-runway gown from the Zac Posen  Spring 2014 collection would be both feminine and sexy.
The nominee for House of Cards is known for her sleek style and ageless beauty. We think her chiseled arms would look amazing in this slinky Cushnie et Ochs  gown, which comes in her favorite color.
Homeland's leading lady will avoid her character's breakdowns with this perfectly flattering Lanvin  dress. Danes often picks pieces from the brand (including her pregnancy gown at left), and this rosy column would play up her new mom glow.
She was just named "Best Dressed Woman of 2013,"  and there is a reason why! The best actress nominee for Scandal plays up her petite frame in high-fashion pieces in bold colors. She'd stand out in this equally cool and sexy J. Mendel gown with a plunging neckline and pockets.
The British star often goes as far from her Downtown Abbey look as possible on the red carpet, and what could feel more quintessentially modern than this colorblock Roksanda Ilincic  gown?
The Nashville star often picks blue for her red carpet appearances (seriously, any excuse to play up her hair works for us), and this disco-ready gown by Kate Middleton-favorite Jenny Packham  is the perfect twist on the hue for this year's best actress nominee.
The Game of Thrones star is one of Hollywood's breakout stars this year and not just on the small screen. Her fashion chops are gaining her red carpet-favorite status rapidly, and she can cement them by picking this simply stunning Dior Couture gown.
Arguably TV's funniest lady has had a serious style makeover in the past few years, looking impeccable for every appearance. She could stick to her favored navy blue but turn up the sparkle with this peek-a-boo Elie Saab  Haute Couture gown.
The Girls star often surprises us with her red carpet choices, tending more towards Old Hollywood glamour than mesh tank tops. This tiered Valentino gown would be a cool twist on a familiar silhouette for the nominee, but the pale green and white would be a fresh twist for her.
