The 69th annual Emmy Awards took place on the evening of Sunday, September 17th at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.
Actors and actresses brought their fashion A game to the awards show and were not afraid to take some risks. While there were many amazing looks, we’ve narrowed it down to our top ten favorite looks from the red carpet.
- Shailene Woodley in Ralph Lauren Collection
Woodley may have just had her biggest fashion moment, and we’re so happy we got to witness it. The Big Little Lies actress stunned in this green velvet gown by Ralph Lauren which contrasted with her light blonde hair and fair skin perfectly.
2.Viola Davis in Zac Posen
Davis always gets it right when it comes to red carpet fashion, but this burnt orange Zac Posen gown turned it up a notch, even for her. That rich color against her radiant skin tone is everything.
3. Millie Bobby Brown in Calvin Klein
The Stranger Things actress proved that you can be fashionable at any age, in this white strapless ballerina style dress. Her full look was soft and sweet, just like her.
4. Claire Foy in Oscar de la Renta
Who said you need to wear a gown on the red carpet? Foy radiated confidence in this black jumpsuit with a beaded knot detail and a cape effect that dropped to the floor.
5. Reese Witherspoon in Stella McCartney
It’s official, Reese Witherspoon does not age. Instead, she just keeps looking better and better. The Big Little Lies actress took a bit of a fashion risk in this blue satin tuxedo dress and blue pointed toe heels. And, as expected, she rocked it.
6. Julia Louis-Dreyfus in Caroline Herrera
The Veep star took home the Emmy for comedy lead actress, and she looked great doing it. This strapless black Carolina Herrera gown had a beautiful yellow beaded detail on the chest, and was understated yet gorgeous.
7. Jessica Biel in Ralph & Russo Couture
Biel looked amazing in this sequined gown with a thigh-high slit and plunging neckline. My favorite part was the one sheer sleeve that continued down to the floor, trailing behind her. Just one question, where’s Justin?
8. Thandie Newton
Newton looked like a princess in this pale pink/lavender strapless ballgown. The Westworld actress was nominated for an Emmy due to her role as the brothel madam.
9. Gabrielle Union in Zuhair Murad
Union looked equal parts vampy and glamorous in this embroidered, sheer Zuhair Murad gown and capelet.
10. Priyanka Chopra in Balmain
Now this isn’t just a look, it’s a moment. Chopra stunned in this white long sleeve Balmain gown with crystal beading and a feathered bottom. She paired this daring gown with red and burgundy lip and eye makeup, which brought some color and edge to the ensemble.
