Another awards show kicked off today: the 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards. And much like the previous awards ceremonies of 2020, this year’s Emmys also looks a little different: it was virtual. Peculiarities included custom-made Hazmat tuxedos, designer pyjamas and video calls to winners, who were asked to “come as you are but make an effort”. A leaked letter to nominees even revealed: “If you’re in the UK and it’s 3am, perhaps you want to be in designer pajamas [sic] and record from your bed!”
But for those not in the UK cuddled up in jammies like Jameela Jamil, the Emmys glamour stakes were high. From Yara Shahidi’s spectacular plume-plucked sequinned Prada dress to Tracee Ellis Ross’s gilt lamé delight, the fashion was all kinds of glorious. First-time winner, Zendaya, was arguably best on ground, first fronting our (social media) screens in incredible Christopher John Rogers before changing into an equally incredible custom Giorgio Armani gown, both looks accented by brilliant Bulgari diamonds.
Below, a look at some of the best fashion thus far from yet another strange awards night.
