The Most Talked-About Looks From The 2019 Emmys

A night to remember.


On Sunday evening, the 71st edition of the Emmys was hosted in Los Angles, marking the beginning of the 2019’s red-carpet season (or purple carpet, if we’re being very precise here). While we were all impressed to see the awards show being hostless for the first time since 2003 and “Game of Thrones” entering the game with a solid 32 nominations, the Emmys carpet didn’t disappoint in fashion terms either. Here’s a quick and swift rundown of the most talked-about looks from the 2019 Emmys!

“Game Of Thrones” star Gwendoline Christie is no stranger to rocking controversial red-carpet looks. Why make an exception for the Emmys? Christie, who was nominated for “Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series” for her role as Brienne of Tarth, rocked up in a Medieval-cut Gucci gown. “I think she’s the only woman alive who can wear something like this I swear. A fucking queen”, one fan tweeted out shortly after the first images surfaced. And we couldn’t agree more!

Christie wasn’t the only GoT star to grace us with a moment. Maisy Williams turned up in a custom-made, black gown, designed by JW Anderson in collaboration with Williams’ boyfriend, Reuben Selby. The detailed waist clasp and diamante embellishments were perfectly complemented by black strappy crystal pumps from no other than Roger Vivier.

And while we do agree that our favorite Mother of Dragons would’ve deserved an Emmy statue, let’s not hold grudges but instead, appreciate Emilia Clarke looking divine in her navy, deep-V Valentino gown.

One of the major trends of this year’s Emmys carpet was color blocking, with the preferred pair of choice being red and pink. Taraji P. Henson showed up in a revealing flowy number with cape-like shoulders, while Kelechi Watson graced us with a classic, off-the-shoulders dress with oversized puffy sleeves and Marisa Tomei sported a one-shouldered gown with metallic pumps. Our personal little fashion award has to go to “This Is Us” star Mandy Moore who was finally nominated for “Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series” and attended in a custom-made Brandon Maxwell gown which she perfectly accessorized with dangly earrings, multiple rings and strappy red heels.

From the looks of it, model Kendall Jenner didn’t have the easiest of nights. Together with her sister and reality TV-star Kim Kardashian-West, the 23-year-old presented the “Outstanding Competition Program”. The short speech incited quite some laughter amongst the audience, thanks to the sisters describing their family show, “Keeping Up With The Kardashians”, as “unscripted” and “real”. Jenner’s choice of outfit was a black latex number by Richard Quinn which puffed out into a floral printed mermaid cut which made it onto quite a few “worst dressed…” lists. Ouch!

Zendaya can do no wrong when it comes to fashion, and the Emmys’ red carpet was just another proof of that. The “Euphoria” actress turned up in a show-stopping emerald green gown by Vera Wang. The look could’ve been best described as head-to-toe perfection. The corset-like bustier was complemented by a bottom-length satin skirt, a thigh-high leg slit and some matching Brian Atwood pumps. While some fans pointed out the similarities between Zendaya’s look and comic legend Poison Ivy, others simply share their excitement via Twitter. “Zendaya came to serve at the Emmys. Period.” Preach it!

While we’re talking of #styledbyLAW creations, actress Jameela Jamil didn’t disappoint either. The “Good Place” star stunned everyone in an icy blue, one-shoulder princess gown which she topped off with a matching clutch bag, dangly earrings and red pout.

Last but definitely not least, actor/entertainer Billy Porter made history as the first gay man to ever win “Best Lead Actor in a Drama Series” for role as Pray Tell in “Pose”. And he looked fabulous in his custom-made black and silver suit by Michael Kors and asymmetric Stephen Jones hat. Cheers to that, Billy!
