Here Are The Most Memorable Outfits From The 2018 Emmys

Featuring Sandra Oh, RuPaul, and the "Stranger Things" kids.

Good news for TV fans: the 70th annual Emmy Awards are here! This year's nominees feature phenomenal Canadian actresses Sandra Oh and Tatiana Maslany, as well as the hilarious and incisive Samantha Bee, who we choose to claim as a Canadian even though she's made a name for herself as a vital and irreverent critic of American politics.

But as everyone knows, (one of) the best part(s) of any award show is the red carpet. Here are the most memorable outfits from Monday night's Emmy Awards.

    Much like the most recent season of "Game of Thrones," this dress can't decide what it's trying to do.

    Steve from "Stranger Things" is one of the most realistic and interesting teenage boys on TV. Steve from "Stranger Things" deserves better than these short pants and that long hair.

    The colours, pleats and frills are not, shall we say, enhanced by the belt and messy topknot.
