2020 Emmy Awards: All the stylish looks you need to see


The 2020 Emmy Awards were very special due to the coronavirus pandemic. And very different! This year's night honouring the best in television was made up of virtual streams, pre-recorded clips and socially distanced events due to COVID-19. And there was no red carpet.

But celebrities embraced the change, along with the reported "come as you are" dress code. Many used the opportunity to dress up again and enjoy the feeling of being glamorous. Some opted for creative takes on WFH pyjama dressing and sweats. Other stylish stars used the unique situation to highlight incredible fashion. Overall, it was an evening filled with striking looks. Here are the Emmys fashion highlights:

Kerry Washington wore not one, but two looks. She described this pretty Oscar de la Renta floral gown as "Little Flowers Everywhere." It was accessorized with Monica Vinader jewels.

The Scandal actress's second ensemble was a dazzling beaded gown from Dolce & Gabbana. Her gorgeous green jewels were courtesy of Chopard.

Cynthia Erivo looked fierce in a printed Versace mini dress with Tiffany & Co jewels.

Reese Witherspoon toasted the evening in an elegant Louis Vuitton dress and Louis Vuitton High Jewellery.

Billy Porter's red carpet looks are always a highlight. He didn't disappoint at the 2020 Emmys in a regal bespoke ensemble from Ashi Studio, Rick Owens shoes and Lorraine Schwartz jewels.

Sitting here with my @ozark crew hat wishing I could be with everyone to celebrate in person. I’m so proud to be on this show. It has changed my life in so many ways. I’m so grateful. I’m not only grateful to be working, but to be able to work with people I love. Also I want to give a special thanks to Meryl Streep, who wasn’t on the zoom call tonight. When I was 15 I watched Sophie’s Choice and it made me want to be an actress. I wouldn’t be doing this if it weren’t for you. And thank god because I don’t really know how to do anything else!! So thank you. Love to you all!! Thank you for putting a smile on my face this year. The world is better because you are all in it. We can get through anything if we do it together. Let love be our guide ❤️❤️❤️ #emmys2020 @televisionacad Photo credit @markfoster
