The 2019 Emmy’s red-carpet looks we will always remember

- - No comments
The 2019 Emmy’s has come and gone – but luckily for us, those red-carpet moments linger on so that we can talk about them to death.
Last night was televisions’ biggest award show – the 71st Primetime 2019 Emmy Awards. While we loved watching our favourite actors, series and talk shows take home the coveted trophy, we loved the red-carpet looks even more!

Before we get into some of the most impressive looks on the carpet, here are just a few of the trends spotted. There was HEAPS of colour on the Emmy’s famous purple carpet, but none more popular than the perhaps surprising combination of red and pink. White gowns and dinner jackets were seen on a few of our favourite celebs; and suits in alternative colours – think forest green and tree-bark brown – were popular too. We saw bows – a lot of bows. Plus, the love for metallic is still alive and well, as is big florals (some of them metallic).

Kendall Jenner

If anyone can hustle up a look literally straight off last week’s London Fashion Week runway it's obviously Kendall. Attending the awards as a presenter, with sister Kim Kardashian-West, she wore a dramatic Richard Quinn gown and Vex latex polo neck bodysuit. This is a look to remember.

Sophie Turner

Our Queen of the North and face of Louis Vuitton did not disappoint in this blush pink, sleeveless gown. The belt detail adds some hardware to an ultra-pretty look that’s fit for a princess. The nominee for Best Supporting Actress in a Drama for none other than Game of Thrones went solo on the purple carpet, without her new husband Joe Jonas who is currently performing with band, The Jonas Brothers.

Regina King

The multi-Emmy winning actress mesmerised in a light blue Jason Wu gown. The well-fitted high-neck design cinches in at her waist with satin ribbon frame-like detailing, before cascading elegantly down to the floor, leaving behind an impressive train. Let’s also pay special attention to that thigh-high slit showing off her toned legs. We love you Regina.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus

All hail the Queen of comedy. Nominated for her NINTH Emmy for Veep, only to lose it to a very worthy contester (Phoebe Waller-Bridge), is our favourite Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who looked absolutely beautiful in a shimmering figure-hugging deep-plunge gown by Oscar de la Renta. Very sadly we say goodbye to her much-loved character Selena Meyer on Veep, which has just finished its final season. But we don’t doubt we will see a whole lot more of this icon on future Emmys carpets.

Gwendoline Christie

She made headlines for nominating herself for Best Supporting Actress in a Drama for her portrayal of Brienne of Tarth on Game of Thrones – and rightly so. Our favourite knight of the seven kingdoms wore Gucci on the purple carpet, and although she didn’t take home the trophy, she's a strong contender for best-dressed in our humble opinion.

Sandra Oh

What a year it’s been for Sandra Oh. After literally making history for being the first women of Asian decent to take home multiple Golden Globes, she was a favourite to win a Lead Actress in a Drama Emmy for her role in Killing Eve. She might have lost it to her co-star Jodie Comer, but at least she lost in a dress like that! The Zac Posen creation looks flawless on her, and we can’t help but obsess over her matching blush and chic updo.

Billy Porter

The ever-eccentric and wildly fashionable Pose star, who deservedly won Best Actor for a Drama, wore Micheal Kors Couture plus Rick Owens peep-toe platforms, finished off with a dramatic hat that only Billy Porter can pull off.

Laverne Cox

Laverne Cox always looks ravishing. But this Monsoori creation is fashion on steroids! The nominee for Outstanding Guest Actress in Drama Series for Orange is the New Black wore a fun and dramatic black and ever-so-muted purple-ruffled gown. But it was her LGBTQ rainbow Edie Parker clutch that got everyone’s attention for its poignant political importance. Emblazoned on the bag was 'Oct 8, Title VII, Supreme Court'.

Zoe Kazan

The Deuce actress and her husband rocked the red carpet together but she stole the show in a red and pink (trend alert!), puffed-up sleeved Gucci gown. Adorning her colourful ensemble was yet another trend we spotted everywhere – bows. A truly unique and fashion forward moment that only few could pull off quite as well. 

Emilia Clarke

We love it when a dress can look both sexy and sophisticated, and Emilia Clarke’s Valentino Haute Couture gown with a plunging neckline is the definition of both. While the Mother of Dragons can do no wrong, this might be our best look for her yet. Her sleek, iron-straight hair tucked behind her ears shows off her drop earrings perfectly. Bows were big on this year’s purple carpet, and we love this mini version (mini when compared to the rest we saw) tied very strategically just below the plunge. Bravo – and it had pockets... We love pockets.

Catherine O’Hara

Catherine O’Hara is another comedy queen and a personal fave. She finally got a nod for her brilliant, genius portrayal of Moira Rose on the hilarious Schitt's Creek (also nominated for its first-ever Emmy). Although she didn’t take home the coveted prize for Lead Actress in a Comedy Series, her Greta Constantine gown made us think happily of beloved Moira, who we think would wear this monochromatic ensemble just as well as Catherine. Long live Moira Rose.

Catherine Zeta-Jones

The age-defying actress was attending in support of her husband Michael Douglas, and so deserves a mention on this best-dressed list for her dress's sheer elegance and sophistication. We’re not in the least surprised that Catherine still gives her man butterflies (as he was recently quoted as saying to reporters) after nearly two decades of marriage.

Phoebe Waller-Bridge

The big winner of the night! The brains and genius behind fan-favourite Fleabag, Phoebe Waller-Bridge (PWB) looked stunning in a Monique Lhullier masterpiece. PWB took home four Emmys for Fleabag including Best Comedy and Best Actress in a Comedy. Now that Fleabag is finished, and after she helped create Killing Eve, we cannot wait to see what this Brit brings us next.

Kit Harington

Handsome, responsible and King of the North, an Emmy’s red-carpet list wouldn’t be the same without the darling Kit Harington. He might have been without his Rose by his side, but the nominee for Lead Actor in Drama Series for his portrayal of Jon Snow on Game of Thrones did not disappoint. Sans a tie or bowtie, his classic black suit and white shirt buttoned all the way up looked modern and extremely dapper.

Natasha Lyonne

She might have made headlines post-Emmys for her hilarious and expressive clapping during the ceremony, but we’re here to pay tribute to her gorgeous Gucci ensemble. The nominee for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series for Russian Doll looks flawless in pleated gold.

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau

The nominee for Supporting Actor in a Drama Series wore this Dolce & Gabbana silken gold dinner jacket and suit ensemble perfectly. It's perfectly handsome and elegant and we cannot fault him for this bold fashion move.

Mahershala Ali

This outstanding choice of suit and how its styled – forest green and accessorised with loafers sans the socks – makes this nominee for Lead Actor for his work on True Detective a solid nominee for best-dressed man of the night.

Patricia Arquette

Patricia stood out in a white Grecian-goddess-style LBV number and walked right onto stage to win that trophy for Best Supporting Actress in a Limited Series or Movie and give a personal, political and highly emotional speech championing trans rights after her sister, a transgender actress, died last year. Two jobs well done.

Bill Hader

It is usually the women who wow us the most on the red carpet, but when a man does a suit this well, we have to give him credit. Winner of Best Actor in a Comedy for his role as Barry in Barry, Bill Hader’s Dior Men suit deserves all the rounds of applause. A suit fit (literally; it fits like a glove) for a winner.

Eugene Levy and son Daniel Levy

Two of our favourite men in comedy, the dynamic father and son duo who created and starred in Schitt's Creek came to the party dressed to impress. Although their brilliant comedy didn’t take home any of the prizes, including Best Actor in a Comedy (Eugene), these two men have a lot to be proud of – and their impeccable sense of style is just one!
