2016 Emmys Arrivals NEW LEAD

Television's biggest night is here and the 68th annual Primetime Emmy Awards has officially kicked off on a stylish note. Sure, we're all wondering who will take home the evening's most coveted honors, but before the Jimmy Kimmel-hosted affair begins, all of our attention is squarely focused on the star-studded looks coming down the red carpet at L.A.'s Microsoft Theater.

Veteran actress Felicity Huffman, who is up for best performance by an actress in a limited series or motion picture made for television for her role on ABC's American Crime, was a vision in a floaty floor-length gown with the best accessory—hubby and fellow actor William H. Macy. America Ferrera, meanwhile, looked incredible in a low-cut shimmery navy number.

Last year's leading ladies and gentlemen put on a fine performance on the step and repeat (how can we forget Lady Gaga's breathtaking one-shouldered Old Hollywood look, or Kieran Shipka's unexpected two-piece ensemble?), and we can bet this year's roster of talent won't disappoint.

Click here to see the gallery and keep it here for continued InStyle coverage of the 2016 Emmys red carpet before the ceremony starts at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
