OTRC: Emmy starlets dazzle in chic black gowns - Who looked best? Vote!

While some starlets opted for bright colors and sparkling ensembles, these actresses chose to dazzle the red carpet in black dresses at the 40th Daytime Emmy Awards on Sunday, June 16, 2013 in Los Angeles.

The star-studded event, which aims to recognize outstanding achievement in all fields of daytime television for the 2012 calendar year, saw a number of familiar TV faces arriving on the red carpet. While Kelly Monaco, Kris Jenner, Bethenny Frankel and Giada De Laurentiis all donned elegant looks, who do you think rocked it best?

Monaco, star on the long-running ABC soap-opera "General Hospital," turned heads in a glamorous knee-length gown at the event. The actress, who also won "Dancing with the Stars" in 2005, wore her hair pulled back and completed her look with a sparkling clutch and black peep-toe heels.

Jenner, who is set to appear in her own daytime talk show in the fall, arrived to the red carpet ceremony in a sleeveless floor-length dress. The starlet completed her elegant look with dangling earrings and a sparkling clutch.

Frankel, 42, dazzled in a chic one-shoulder dress that was form-fitting and featured cut-outs. The reality personality, who also stars in her own daytime talk series, opted for pointed toe heels and wore her long, dark locks down.

Laurentiis, 42, turned heads in a black gown that featured a plunging neckline at the awards ceremony. The "Giada at Home" star completed her look with her long locks pulled back and green gemstone earrings.
