The 2021 Emmy Awards returned to an in-person event as opposed to 2020’s virtual ceremony, and the star-studded event was not short of stunning looks from the celebrities in attendance.
The 2021 Emmy Awards have come and gone, but one thing to know is that the celebrities in attendance made sure it was memorable. Stars showed up and showed out in show-stopping designer looks, befitting one of the most-anticipated star-studded events of the year.
The red carpet did not run out of colorful looks as soon as celebrities swished through. From Bully Porter’s ever statement-making looks to Nicole Byer’s bold Christian Siriano look, stars were up to date with their sense of style. Here’s a list of some of the looks that exuded glamour and elegance.
The Hollywood star who bagged the award for Limited Series Writing was a neon vision. She rocked a two-piece neon look from Christopher John Rogers. The glam included a tube crop top and a skirt with a train. Coel’s monochrome style included a pair of neon yellow pumps and pearls.
Wen walked on the red carpet in a fussy mauve gown with ruffle details and a feathery hem. The “Mulan” star’s stunning look came complete with her brunette tresses styled in an updo.
The classic Hollywood star brought on her A-game in a floor-length dark red dress. The outfit bore a train and a thigh-high slit, while the bodice was strapless. Zeta-Jones let her raven hair down her back as she matched her look with red stilettos.
Clemons-Hopkins opted for a flattering look that had them paying homage to the non-binary flag. They donned an off-shoulder shirt into a pair of black wide-legged pants. The “Hacks’ actor added flare with their gold and purple sashes.
The Hollywood A-lister rocked a comfy look that included a floor-length silver platinum slip dress. The outfit bore a cowl-neckline while she cinched her waist with a matching corset.
Byer displayed a memorable look in her Christian Siriano purple mesh dress that bore ruffled derails at the hem. The outfit included an off-shoulder cape while Byer wore her hair in a curly updo.
Yara’s Dior Haute Couture look was nothing short of elegant and vintage-like. Shahidi clad her petite figure in a green ankle-length dress with a wide skirt.
The outfit had a v-neckline giving way for an off-shoulder illusion. She complimented the look with brown stilettos and crystal-form jewelry.
Levy ditched the traditional conservative tuxedo for a cobalt blue look that included a custom-made suit, fastened with a sash. The glam had kilt details and matching pants.
The “American Horror Story” star did not disappoint as he stepped out in his signature flamboyant look. Porter’s all-black look was in no way basic as it featured pleated fin-like details on the sleeves. He rocked wide-legged pants and some silver jewelry.
Taraji P Henson
Henson’s Ellie Saab look was befitting of the sultry aura she channeled. The “Acrimony” actress donned a mesh dress with a deep plunge at the bodice and showed ample cleavage. Henson completed the look with a high ponytail and a nude makeup look.
