Over the weekend Emmy awards were handed out during the two-day event. The Creative Arts Emmy award ceremony was held on Saturday at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles while the The Primetime Emmy award ceremony took place on Sunday. 

These awards honour the best in US prime time television programming.

On Sunday, television's most outstanding and accomplished stars attended the prestigious award ceremony dressed in strictly black tie attire.

It's the one red carpet that doesn't look like a circus of barely-there and completely over-the-top outfits. 

It was a delight to see celebs show the awards evening the respect it deserves. 

Even Kim Kardashian toned things down and wore an uncharacteristically modest and classy dress - donning a black velvet Asian inspired floor-length gown.
