Many more stars were at the 2019 Emmy Awards on Sunday (September 22). Here’s a snapshot of the diverse looks that they were wearing.
Kristen Bell: This Christian Dior gown was a dazzling way to take on a spectrum of colours in a sophisticated yet statement-making way.
Isla Fisher: The actress was a silver goddess in a Zuhair Murad metallic plisse gown that was the epitome of old Hollywood glamour — even if it maybe fell a smidge too long.
Robin Wright: The black belting on this Saint Laurent by Anthony Vaccarello gown was clearly a nod to edgier form for the Grecian gown.
Eliza Scanlen: Wearing top-to-toe Miu Miu, Eliza fully embraced this darling princess moment. From the bows and frill to the embellished “slippers,” the look was very twee. But, the sweetness was so well put-together that it worked for the young star.
Dascha Polanco: The puff bow sleeves on this Christian Siriano Resort 2020 design would put any 80s prom gown to shame.
Joey King: This scarlet Zac Posen gown was striking in its simplicity against Joey’s alabaster skin. Swarovski jewels and Stuart Weitzman ‘Disco’ platforms unified the look, but stayed within the more minimal theme.
Catherine O’Hara: This custom Greta Constantine colour-block gown may get comparisons to Cruella de Vil’s black-and-white wardrobe. Giuseppe Zanotti sandals completed the bold look.
Halsey: Before taking to the Emmys stage to perform, Halsey was on the red carpet. We often see her in far more provocative looks, but she literally took a softer stance in this Rami Kadi lavender degrade gown.
Maisie Williams: With distinct retro-mod flair, this custom JW Anderson dress made an impact and Maisie wore it so well with Repossi jewels and Roger Vivier embellished shoes.
MJ Rodriguez: I can appreciate the saturated intensity of the fuchsia hue in this custom Jason Wu Collection gown, but the creases in the ball skirt and the black bows under the bodice spoiled it for me. Anita Ko jewels completed the look.
Busy Philipps: The actress wasn’t ready to leave summer behind in her custom Lela Rose Mirabelle yellow Swiss dot point d’espirit tulle gown — that could have also passed as an elaborate slip. She styled it with Irene Neuwirth jewelry and Stuart Weitzman ‘Sohot’ platforms, but it was the white clutch that stuck out like a sore thumb.
Nathalie Emmanuel: My issue with this Miu Miu gown is that it actually looks a little bit dated, between the placement of the cutouts and the oversized, crystallized embroidery. She accessorised with Anita Ko jewels.
Nicole Byer: Nicole was radiant in this sunny-yellow Christian Siriano cold-shoulder gown — and the twist of her updo was the crowning glory to the bold and beautiful entrance.
Christina Applegate: Gray will forever be a tricky hue to wear on the red carpet, and this custom Vera Wang Collection dress fell a bit flat for that reason. But, with all the ruffles and ruching, it seemed a bit contrived anyway. I do love the spark of her magenta lip here.
Sandra Oh: This simple, sculpted Zac Posen gown created a lovely silhouette for Sandra, which she accompanied with Messika Jewellery and Gina heels. I wish she had gone lighter on the blush and deeper on the lip here.
Melanie Liburd: I understand the allure of a big train on a big red carpet, but I just wanted to detach this overwrought tulle one and let the Azzi & Osta Couture peplum jumpsuit speak for itself.
Clea DuVall: Taking a page from the guys, she wore a Styland tux with Hearts On Fire jewelry for an intriguing departure from the sea of gowns and stilettos.
Amy Poehler: I like where Amy was going with this Greta Constantine brushed-gold jumpsuit, but the execution and fit didn’t quite come together — plus, I’m not sure why the black tie was there.
Natasha Lyonne: This metallic Gucci plisse gown styled with David Webb jewels immediately reminded me of something Florence Welch would wear. But, with the big bow, it also fit Natasha’s quirkier style.
Lyric Ross: The ‘This Is Us’ breakout starlet wore a Rubin Singer gown with a Tadashi Shoji clutch that was lovely, albeit perhaps a bit mature for her 15 years. The blunt bob did succeed in adding some youthful quality back to it.
Eris Baker: Another ‘This Is Us’ starlet, Eris had a bit more youthful fun with her Tadashi Shoji tulle tier gown and Hearts on Fire jewels. But it was the glitter makeup and sparkling headpiece where she really added her version of princess spunk to the look.
Jameela Jamil: I loved this mint-green Monique Lhuillier confection against Jameela’s complexion, even if it was a bit creased in some areas — and that the clutch matched seamlessly. The neon-coral lip was another spot-on choice here to bring fire to the look.
Lena Headey: Everything was coming up roses for Lena in this Brock Collection ruffle gown, whereby the distinct femininity was spliced through with the darker mystique of the black ribbon.
Jodie Comer: Spliced through several ways, this Tom Ford gown relied on slits at the shoulders, bust, and thigh for impact. I probably would have opted for a metallic sandal, but maybe black was selected to stay further out of bridal territory. Tiffany & Co. jewels completed the look.
Susan Kelechi Watson: I think Susan and Dascha Polanco were drinking the same style Kool-Aid with their love of pouf sleeves last night. Again, I would have preferred this Badgley Mischka Spring 2020 red gown without the pink appendages — especially since her Anabela Chan earrings were so striking of their own accord.
Niecy Nash: There would be no missing Niecy (or the girls) in this glinting Christian Siriano gown and matching turban.
Julia Louis-Dreyfus: The actress had a golden moment in this Oscar de la Renta dress that perhaps seemed just a teensy bit snug, or perhaps it was just her pose. Irene Neuwirth jewelry and shiny sandals followed her metallic mood.
Emily Hampshire: Much like Joey King, Emily went the way of crimson with a J. Mendel ruffle gown against her alabaster skin to gothic-glam effect. She styled the look with a Tyler Ellis clutch and Stuart Weitzman ‘Nudist Disco’ sandals.
Greta Lee: A look like this Christopher John Rogers design is hard to forget, so I’m sure you’ll recall that Tracee Ellis Ross wore a version of it not too long ago. The bib-like top felt a bit awkward here, but I can still appreciate the experimentation and illuminating, holographic lime hue.
Laura Linney: If the trousers had cut a slimmer silhouette, I think this two-piece look would have immediately been elevated.
Sian Clifford: Although this Emilia Wickstead dress was in a soft crème shade, it still cut a more severe attitude with the strict silhouette and fan sleeves.
Patricia Arquette: Another lady in white, Patricia wore a Christian Siriano gown that took on a gracious, serene mood. The more expressive side of the actress came through with the heavier metal hardware of her tassel clutch.
