The Emmy Awards is no Oscars, but it still warrants a good scrutiny for all the beautiful and gorgeous outfits that the stars turn up in. This year's red carpet saw an explosion of dramatic elements – whether in terms of colour or embellishment. Here's a roundup of the most outstanding nine looks.
The colour can be a little off-putting at first glance. But the overall effect of the Zac Posen gown that Sandra Oh chose to wear for the night does somehow work to turn heads.
White as a colour is indeed vivid. Jodie Comer looked all sorts of gorgeous in this Tom Ford design. The dress was sexy, but at the same time, tasteful, with a high thigh slit and shoulder cutouts.
Joey King also wore Zac Posen. Classic yet fierce, this fiery red design channeled old Hollywood glamour. The oversized bow in the back was certainly a nice and dramatic surprise.
Michelle Williams brought her A-game to the Emmy Awards this year. Her Louis Vuitton dress had an intricate print and pattern, which was further embellished with heavy beading.
Reminiscent of an armour, Rachel Brosnahan’s dress had a striking sheen to it. The Elie Saab design had an asymmetrical wrap neckline and hip frill to give it volume and added drama.
Oh, sweet baby blue. Regina King appeared intoxicatingly fresh in her Jason Wu gown. Extra straps and beading provided just the right amount of extra flair for the red carpet.
All eyes were on Billy Porter at the Emmy Awards, who is known for his elaborate red carpet getups. And he didn’t disappoint. The Michael Kors suit that he wore was hand embroidered with 130,000 crystals.
Lena Headey stepped out in a Brock Collection floral dress with a plunging neckline and tiered sleeves, tied with a bow down the middle. The mint colour was simply refreshing.
If you can decide between a gown and a suit, why not go for both. Kathryn Newton’s Ralph Lauren two-piece outfit had a vest as a top, but paired with a flared, cascading skirt.
