We're used to seeing Julianne in darker colors, which is why we were surprised to see her in a bright …

The 64th Annual Emmy Awards took place on September 23 at the Nokia Theater in California and stars flooded the red carpet for the event. Unfortunately, some should have stayed at home or picked something better to wear. While some stars stepped out looking fabulous from head-to-toe, there were several who were severely lacking in the fashion department. So who were some of the worst dressed celebs to walk the red carpet at the Emmys?

Juliana Marguiles

The fabric from grandma's couch has made a return. The star of "The Good Wife" usually steps out in plain dark gowns for red carpet events, but she went the complete opposite direction in a strapless floral print Narciso Rodriguez gown. Kudos to her for going with something different, but the print on the dress was way too busy.

Kristen Wiig

Now that the funny woman is off "Saturday Night Live," maybe she'll have more time to get her fashion sense in order. We'll never understand why she insists on wearing colors that don't work with her skin tone and she did it yet again at the Emmys. She wore a nude lace halter Balenciaga tea-length dress that looked more like lingerie than a gown that belonged at the formal event. Nude shoes, a nude clutch and flowing wavy hair finished off the outfit.

Heidi Klum

We get that the model looks great in lingerie, but did she have to wear something that looks like it on the red carpet? She stepped out in a light blue Alexandre Vauthier gown that had a plunging neckline and two dangerously high leg slits. It looked tacky, especially at the Emmys, and she needed more support on the top.

Michelle Dockery

The "Downtown Abbey" actress walked the red carpet in a cobalt blue Louis Vuitton gown that didn't fit her at all. Not only is the gown unattractive, the top didn't fit properly, the bottom was too large and the dress was too long. Her up-do was messy, but at least her makeup looked lovely. If you're going to go to the effort of attending a formal event where a huge amount of cameras will be present, at least make sure to get your attire properly fitted first.

Glenn Close

We're not exactly sure where the legendary actress was going with her long-sleeve black patterned frock, but it was nowhere good. It looks like she just found a bunch of scrap fabric pieces and sewed them all together. Definitely not a good look.

Phoebe Price

The actress wore a hideous strapless ruffled dress that was short in the front and long in the back and had a huge flower pinned into the top. The color of the dress looked like she left it out in a dusty attic for a few months. To make matters worse, she wore bright orange heels.

Zosia Mamet

The "Girls" actress stepped out in a black and white Bihbu Mahopatra gown that had cap sleeves, a sheer panel at the neckline and lace detailing at the sides of the skirt. There's nowhere to even begin to describe how truly ugly this gown is. As if that wasn't bad enough, she had her hair slicked back which just added to the harshness of the look.

Lena Dunham

Lena went from one extreme to the other during the Emmys by wearing a full length blue halter gown that had a short sleeve black lace overlay while on the red carpet, then making an appearance in a Jimmy Kimmel spoof in which she's naked and eating birthday cake while sitting on the toilet. She looks way too matronly in the gown and it doesn't even fit her correctly.

Julianne Moore

Her yellow long-sleeve Christian Dior gown is one that you'll either love or hate and unfortunately, we're going to have to go with the latter. While her hair and makeup are gorgeous, all the yellow is just way too much and we needed sunglasses just to take a look at it.

Who gets your vote for the worst dressed celebs at the Emmys?
