The 71st Primetime Emmy Awards was just hosted at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, where television fans across the globe kept their fingers tightly crossed for their favourite actors and actresses who’ve kept us entertained — whether in cheers or tears — night after night. As we watched the best in television for the year from Fleabag to Killing Eve, Barry and Pose (and even the disappointing Game of Thrones) taking home awards, our eyes were also busy lingering over all the beautifully dressed candidates and attendees spotted on the red carpet. Scroll down to find out 10 of our favourite looks that graced the Emmy’s 2019.
Jodie Comer’s win as Best Actress in a Drama Series for Killing Eve was matched by an equally stunning white Tom Ford dress with cutouts in the right places.
Sophie Turner’s custom Louis Vuitton gown was a powder-pink delight, accentuated with metallic square-toed heels and a never-seen-before white gold necklace from the label’s high jewellery line.
Zendaya channelled her inner Poison Ivy with an emerald corset gown with a floor-sweeping train, courtesy of Vera Wang.
Rachel Brosnahan scored her third Emmy nomination for her leading role in The Marvelous Mrs Maisel, and though she may not have taken home the trophy, she’s a winner in our eyes for carrying off this midnight blue, sequin-studded Elie Saab creation like a dream.
Phoebe Waller-Bridge has officially won Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series for her role in Fleabag against other seriously formidable actresses, a victory bagged in her iridescent Monique Lhuiller gown dressed with sequin trails that glimmered as she took the stage.
Taraji P. Henson is known for her bold outfits on the red carpet, and this occasion is no different with her colour-blocked, red and pink custom Vera Wang dress turning heads.
Russian Doll‘s leading lady and Emmy nominee Natasha Lyonne became prime meme fodder thanks to her claps during the awards, but it is her golden Gucci dress that we’ll remember the most.
The Good Place sweetheart showed a darker side today with her black Dior halter gown, detailed with coloured ribbons that, upon closer look, were intricate patchworks of beads.
Emilia Clarke eschewed the ostentatious in favour of a simple Valentino gown, in an unassuming shade of navy blue. The kicker, though, is the plunging neckline, which proves that the best accessories are the ones you already have.
