Actress Laverne Cox looked beautiful in blue at the Emmy Awards yesterday.

(Cover) - EN Star Style - Actress Laverne Cox may not have been nominated for an Emmy, but she stunned on the red carpet last night (20Sep15).

The Orange Is the New Black star was nominated in the Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series category last year, but didn't receive any nods for 2015.

However, she didn't let that bother her as she hit the awards do in a turquoise Calvin Klein Collection gown. It was low cut and had cut-outs at the side and back, with a thigh-high split finishing the look off.

She accessorised with a simple black clutch and yellow heels.

"I feel amazing tonight in entire look for #Emmys #Emmys2015. Special thanks to everyone at #CalvinKlein and my entire glam team. Love you all so much (sic)," she posted on Instagram, specifically thanking Calvin Klein designer Francisco Costa and Stuart Weitzman, who was behind her shoes.

Laverne wasn't the only OITNB star to draw admiring glances at the ceremony. Her co-star Uzo Aduba, who picked up the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series award, looked amazing in a Jonathan Cohen gown in bright pink, with a fading grey-blue pattern at the top of the skirt.

The stars of Game of Thrones also looked like winners, with the show picking up the Best Television Drama Series award among others.

Maisie Williams looked cute in a pale pink midi-length dress with her hair flowing down on one side.

"Ready for the Emmys Makeup by the beautiful @kmannmakeup Hair by the wonderful @brycescarlett Thanks guys (sic)," she posted on Instagram.
