Tonight is the 2020 Emmy Awards and the one thing we all look forward to is going to be drastically different this season. Although there’s no red carpet for tonights ceremony, there is a dress code. Nominees were encouraged to “come as you are, but make an effort.” The red carpet of every event is an escape for many viewers at home, so when the dress code was released it was expected that many would show up in hundred dollar PJ’s – but, that was not the case.
The Emmy’s is usually set in sunny Los Angeles and full of glitz and glamour and filled with every celebrity from fan-raved shows across every network. Due to COVID-19 and the social distancing measures set in place, the show was set on a “massive Zoom call” where the celebrities were honored and acknowledged in the comfort of their own homes. Hollywoods heavy hitters took the occasion as seriously as the event would be held in-person. Wearing the finest of threads while still collaborating with the elite of Fashion Houses. Celebrities put their fashion foot forward with a roll-out of different photographers to post on social media instead of the chants and cheers of paparazzi and fans on the Red Carpets step-and-repeat.
Some of the evenings best-dressed from home was Regina King who wore a shapely blue stunner by Schiaparelli with a dramatic puffed shoulder, whom changed into a more statement making number from the Fashion house with a T-shirt featuring the name of Breonna Taylor while accepting her award for WATCHMEN. Zendaya also made a case for glitzy style as she also did a breathtaking wardrobe change. Wearing a sculptured dress with an eye catching purple skirt by Christopher John Rogers. Then into a polka-dot cut-out dress by Giorgio Armani, where she made history and accepted her award for as the youngest performer ever to win Best Actress at the 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards. Reese Witherspoon kept it classic with a little black dress from Louis Vuitton, proving that timeless style is still prevalent. Yara Shahidi brought all of her funky chic fashion with a feather number from Prada making a moment that deserved to be in the 1920’s Hall-of-Fame.
