The Emmys' Excellence
By Sinead Dunphy | Oct 10 2018Sinead Dunphy reviews the red carpet royalty at this year’s Emmy Awards. Last month, the 70th Primetime Emmy Awards took place in the Microsoft Theatre in Downtown LA. The ceremony saw the cream of the crop of Hollywood’s television elite, flocking to the red carpet in the hopes of snagging that coveted award. Eyes all around the world tuned in to see who won what - but more importantly - to see who wore what.
In a sea of men in black suits, Queer Eye’s Fab Five were a breath of fresh air.Bright colours reigned supreme on the carpet but there was still a healthy smattering of the classic all black and all white ensembles. Project Runway winner, Christian Siriano, dominated the carpet, dressing seven different actresses in his bold, eye catching designs. Standouts included Leslie Jones in a fun, iridescent pastel suit and Westworld’s Angela Sarafyan in a dramatic princess gown. Handmaid’s Tale star Elisabeth Moss went for the timelessly chic little black dress in custom Vera Wang, while Tracee Ellis Ross turned heads in bright pink Valentino couture. Amy Sedaris made a questionable choice in a shapeless Adam Selman frock but Sandra Oh got it just right in a gorgeous red number by Ralph and Russo.In a sea of men in black suits, Queer Eye’s Fab Five were a breath of fresh air. Karamo Brown showcased up and coming brand C|E Clothier, while Jonathan Van Ness matched a Prada blouse with a chic suit from Stella McCartney. Antoni Porowski, Tan France and Bobby Berk weren’t quite as adventurous as their co-stars but still managed to bring a bit of fun into their suit looks in Balmain, Thom Browne and Prada, respectively. Other honourable male mentions go to Trevor Noah, who was tailored to perfection in Musika Frère. The Stranger Things boys brought a bit of variety to the carpet with Caleb McLaughlin in Louis Vuitton and Noah Schnapp looking smooth in white by Fendi. It was date night for many of the stars in attendance and they were certainly all dressed to impress. Chrissy Tiegen glowed in sparkling Zuhair Murad while her EGOT winning husband, John Legend, looked dapper in Gucci. Isaia was a popular designer for male attendees, as seen on William H Macy who matched with wife, Felicity Huffman, wowing crowds in a black Babaton at Aritzia pantsuit. Possibly the best dressed couple of the night were Scarlett Johansson and host of the show, Colin Jost, both donned in Dolce and Gabbana.
