It is undeniable that in the last few years, television has seriously upped its game! The prestige and opulence that was previously only associated with movies has shifted over to the small screen, and it’s not surprising with the calibre of shows out there. In fact, creators, producers and actors deemed as cinematic royalty are enjoying the career shift for the amazing roles and storylines available through television (cue Meryl Streep in Season 2 of Big Little Lies!!!)

With the multiple platforms, we can now view our shows on, the rise of binge-watching and re-watches, the TV industry seems to be ever expanding and creating more and more exciting content. With all this in mind, it’s no wonder the award shows are getting more sensational as well!

On the 18th of September, our favourite stars walked the red carpet for one of Hollywood’s most esteemed events, the Emmys. Though not as serious as the Oscars or as wild as the Grammys, the Emmys pose a happy medium of fun and light-heartedness with a sense of sophistication and elegance. And the fashion on the night was definitely in alignment with this as well.

From Angela Sarafyan’s show-stopping, starry gown to Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake most definitely bringing sexy back, as well as some serious #couplegoals, the Emmys were brimming with fashion highlights.
Just below you’ll find our top picks of the fashion moments of the night. Chosen for their creativity, craftsmanship and let’s be real the sheer envy they gave us!

THANDIE NEWTON

This delicious lolly pink number looked sensational on this Emmy winner! Designed by Brandon Maxwell, Thandie Newton is owning this colour and that extra-long sleeve.

We loved seeing the range of metallic colours on display at this year’s Emmys, and This Is Us star Mandy Moore definitely nailed the trend. This custom Rodarte dress looked so luxe with those bronze and copper details.

RYAN MURPHY & DARREN CRISS

Now don’t get us wrong, we love the classic black tux but there is something about a colourful or printed suit that stands out so fabulously. Which is why we love how these two gents were dressed. Ryan in shimmering lilac and Darren mixing up the classic black with this eye-catching print.
