It's almost Emmy time! With days to go until the 2014 Emmy Awards on Aug. 25, Keke Palmer is putting the final touches on her red carpet look. Featured in the nominated film, The Trip to Bountiful, Palmer gave Us Weekly a peek at possible dresses and hairstyles for the awards show.

Before any major red carpet, Palmer, 20, collaborates with her glam squad, including fashion stylists Wayman Bannerman and Micah McDonald, makeup artist Agostina and hairstylist Jamika Wilson. Together, the quintet develop an inspiration board of Palmer's preferred looks.

During Us Weekly's photo shoot, Palmer — set to appear in Broadway's Cinderella starting Sept. 9 — tried on gowns and modeled makeup and hair looks that she is considering for Emmy night. Though the actress told Us she prefers her tresses styled in a braid or ponytail, she and Wilson tested out Old Hollywood waves for one trial look.

"It's important to shine in my own unique way," Palmer told Us. "This is a moment where I want to feel like a princess!"
