Christina Ricci, Laverne Cox and Connie Britton led celebrities down the red carpet at the 74th Primetime Emmy Awards Performers Nominees Reception in Los Angeles.

Ricci, 42, cut an elegantly preppy figure by modeling a brown striped button-up sweater and black mini skirt.

The actress, who earned a Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series nomination for her show Yellowjackets, wore black boots.

Cox, 50, sizzled in a skimpy black dress with cutouts all over her torso, accentuating her ample cleavage.

Her entire left leg was uncovered in the dress, and her long, light brown locks cascaded down her chest in the red carpet snaps.

She added sheer black opera gloves for dramatic effect.
