Last night I was eagerly awaiting the images from the 2020 Emmy Awards, and I couldn’t find them anywhere.
It turns out, that there was no red carpet, and all the would-be red carpet looks were only going to be shown via Instagram posts and stories.
It kinda took the wind out of my sails, I’m not going to lie, as I was expecting a socially distanced red carpet like Venice Film Festival. But between the pandemic and the wild fires this was the right thing to do.
The one person who I could rely on bring back that happy feeling was Zendaya.
Not only did she become the youngest ever winner for Best Actress at the Emmys – Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series for her role as Rue Bennett in HBO’s ‘Euphoria’ – but she also gave us two BDOTY worthy looks.
The first was a gorgeous dress from Christopher John Rogers’ Fall 2020 collection.
Yesterday I said I wasn’t ready for Fall, but thanks to these warm tones of grape, eggplant and blackberry, I’ve changed my mind.
The shape of the skirt is a very tricky one to pull off, but you can see from the video, that Zendaya had no problem working this look.
As always the actress was graceful, poised and fashion-forward.
The look was styled with Bvlgari High Jewelry and black Christian Louboutin ‘Cristacora’ pumps with yet more bling.
Following her presenting duties the actress changed into a black matte weave skirt with powder-pink polka dots, paired with a black velvet bandeau top fully embroidered in pearls and crystals from Armani Prive.
The custom look had a very youthful and carefree vibe, while still being grand enough for the occasion, but some might feel this has more of a Grammy, Billboard Music Awards, or AMAs vibe.
Even though Zendaya was at home, I still feel this is a look she would’ve worn to the event itself.
I would’ve loved to have seen Zendaya walking up to the podium to collect her award in this look. It’s an iconic dress that was worthy of her history-making moment.
The two-piece was styled with a Bvlgari high jewelry necklace with diamond studs and an assortment of diamond and emerald rings.
