The Emmy’s 2021 red carpet did not disappoint, after too long a hiatus. Celebrities like Anya Taylor-Joy, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Kate Winslet and Kerry Washington donned their happy rags for the seriously classy affair, which was held last night at the Event Deck in Los Angeles.
It was a far cry from last year’s digital affair, and I’m pleased to report that the best of Hollywood has traded silky pajamas and loungewear for designer dresses tailored by the biggest fashion houses from Dior to Etro.
The dresses were nothing short of incredible. Think floor-striping creations in dazzling shades of sun yellow, neon green and showstopper.
As with any glitzy award, there were plenty of bold silhouettes at the Emmy Awards, culminating in Michaela Coel’s gown designed by Christopher John Rogers (and don’t get me started on her incredible acceptance speech, in which she dedicated her award to “every survivor.” of sexual violence’).
Colorful, cheery dresses seemed to be the A-List this year as star after star streamed down the red carpet in all the colors of the rainbow, from America Ferrera’s purple silk slip to Anya Taylor-Joy’s yellow Dior dress. , Kaley Cuoco’s lime green Vera Wang and Sarah Paulson’s red Carolina Herrera ball gown.
Of course, it wouldn’t be a red carpet without a few sequins, and Amy Poehler, Keri Russel, and Issa Rae all delivered on that front.
Minimalists will also enjoy the monochromatic looks by evening, including Mindy Kaling’s stunning Carolina Herrera column dress complete with oversized tie belt, Ellen Pompeo’s Elie Saab jumpsuit, Jurnee Smollett’s cream Dior dress and Kerry Washington’s tailored Etro corset dress in the lightest shades of gray.
All in all, it was a very classy Emmy’s 2021 red carpet, and I’m so glad it’s back. Click through to see the best dressed celebs from this year’s ceremony.
