The 66th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards were recently held in Los Angeles to honor the best in U.S. prime time television programming.

Pat Lyttle is a fashion specialist for Getty Images and has his finger on the pulse of fashion whether it's on the red carpet, catwalk or in the street.

He shares his favorite fashion styles and trends from the red carpet at the Emmys.  

There were many prestigious awards to be won for the grand event, but what many fashionistas really wanted was to see the glamour and style on the red carpet. The trends, the amazing dresses, the glitz and bling of the evening. Who looked great and who should have sacked their stylist.

Singer and now successful fashion designer Gwen Stefani looked amazing in a shimmering silver ensemble, completely encrusted with Swarovski crystals all by Atelier Versace.

It featured a crop top with a plunging neckline with horizontal gold-bordered fixture.

A floor-length skirt with a slit to the hip held with a tiny belt and buckle solely to connect to adjoining pieces of fabric. Her hair was long and sleek and most definitely rock 'n roll.

Camila Alves looked amazing in a floor length white dress with latticework-like embellishments all created by Zuhair Murad. Accompanied by a tiny clutch bag and husband Matthew McConaughey, she won approval in the eyes of all watching.

Trends were clearly visible with red standing out. More than 20 major celebrities walked the red carpet in red dresses.

January Jones in a strapless ball gown with brocade pattern detail by designer Prabal Gurung worn with Vienna booties by Christian Louboutin.

Claire Danes in a dress by Givenchy. Heidi Klum wore Zac Posen. Minnie Driver in a sleeveless dress with a jewel encrusted neckline designed by Marchesa.

Sarah Hyland in a stunning white top and skirt by Christian Siriano with hair tied up for the perfect look. Also in red was Mad Men goddess Christina Hendricks, her signature curves enveloped in a stunning one-shoulder gown by Marchesa.

Memorable dresses that people spoke about included the red spotted black strapless tulle dress worn by Sarah Paulson from Giorgio Armani, Michelle Dockery in a colorful blue halter neck dress by Rosie Assoulin and Zooey Deschanel in a pink dress from designer Oscar de la Renta.

Metal fans found a silver lining came from the beautifully pregnant Hayden Panettiere in a dress by Lorena Sarbu and Amy Poehler also in a sequin dress by Theia.

In white was Angela Bassett in a wrap dress by Elisabetta Franchi with a gold belt and frieze clutch bag by Oroton, while Julianne Hough wore a dress with by detail by DSquared2 and heels by Casadei.

Kate Mara looked like a goddess in Grecian style dress by J Mendel and foot candy in the form of clear platform sandals by Charlotte Olympia. The Latin beauty Sofia Vergara in a strapless bodice dress by Roberto Cavalli.

And in a vanilla white 1930s style gown was the Chinese beauty with delicate freckles we know to be Lucy Liu in a dress by Zac Posen and clutch bag by Jimmy Choo.

All in blue with big smiles was actress Julia Roberts in towering high peep-toe heels by Christian Louboutin and a beautifully embellished dress by Elie Saab. She was definitely happy with her look and so were we.

Finally the stunning British beauty Cat Deeley made a decidedly British choice in an autumnal coloured organza gown by Burberry with a clutch bag by Jimmy Choo.
