Emmys Purple Carpet 2019: Zendaya
Emmys Purple Carpet 2019: Gwendoline Christie
Gwendoline Christie went full regal with this Arthurian-esque Gucci gown. Appearing at the Emmys’ after she nominated herself for the award for ‘Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series,’ for her apperance in Game of Thrones, Christie took the carpet by storm with the sweeping red and white look; although she didn’t win an award in the end, she basically won the purple carpet.
Emmys Purple Carpet 2019: Natasha Lyonne
As if we didn’t already know she is a true Queen, Natasha Lyonne let this gold Gucci dress have the last word.
Emmys Purple Carpet 2019: Billy Porter
There’s not much more we can say about Billie Porter’s take on the classic pinstripe suit other than “iconic”. After his amazing seven outfit changes in 48 hours at London Fashion Week, the Pose star proved that he’s not here to mess around when it comes to serving looks with this custom Michael Kors Collection ensemble, and we’re so here for it.
Emmys Purple Carpet 2019: Laverne Cox
Laverne Cox’s tiered tulle dress from Monsoori would have stolen the show if it wasn’t for the incredible message behind her custom designed bag. The bespoke acrylic clutch by Edie Parker features the LGBTQ flag on one side and the trans flag on the other: but it’s the words that feature on its front that are so important. “Oct 8, Title VII, Supreme Court,” refers to a landmark case which will consider anti-LGBTQ employment discrimination qualifies as sex discrimination, and will decide whether LGBTQ workers are protected under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act which prohibits employment discrimination based on “race, colour, religion, sex and national origin”.
Emmys Purple Carpet 2019: Jodie Comer
Karamo Brown may not be the fashion guru among Queer Eye’s fab five (that’s the iconic Tan France), but he served a serious look in this suit/cape look from Versace. We’re in love.
Emmys Purple Carpet 2019: Phoebe Waller-Bridge
Phoebe Waller-Bridge had the night of her life at the Emmys, and her Monique Lhuillier gown was the perfect companion for the evening. With its flowing skirt and bejewelled waistband, this was a seriously gorgeous look on the Fleabag star.
This Is Us star Chrissy Metz shone on the purple carpet in this shimmery custom dress by Christian Siriano. The off-the-shoulder look paired with the gunmetal sheen of the material completed this incredible style.
