Zoe Saldana, Michelle Dockery, and More Celebs Kick Off 2014 Emmy's Week In Style with Bold Prints and Simple Dresses

The 2014 Emmy Awards are finally upon us (in case you couldn't tell by the many best-Emmys-gowns-ever roundups and countless who-will-win predictions floating around the Internet). And after preoccupying ourself with anger our over Tatiana Maslany's Emmy nomination snub and taking a stab at which stars will wear Paris Couture Fashion Week gowns to the 2014 Emmy Awards for the last several weeks, we've gotten what we've been waiting for at last: a glimpse of what this year's Emmy fashion may look like, thanks to the Audi Emmys Week Celebration in Los Angeles on Thursday evening. And if stars like Zoe Saldana, Michelle Dockery, and Jessica Paré are any indication, it looks like this year's awards will be a mix of in-your-face patterns and minimally chic ensembles. Click through to see all the best the red-carpet looks from the pre-Emmys bash.
