The Best 2018 Emmys' Fashion Moments, From A Sheer Top To A Hidden Gown Handler
So you've had the chance to check out all the head-to-toe looks from the red carpet, but the most memorable fashion from the 2018 Emmy Awards deserves its own recognition. No matter which Hollywood star won best dressed in your book, there were plenty of noteworthy fashion moments that didn't just look good, but brought the feels, too. Both on the golden carpet and behind the scenes, you had to keep an eye out for the moments that went beyond your typical step and repeat pose.
While in everyday life, celebrities spend their days in jeans and yoga pants (because, at the end of the day, everyone wants to be comfortable), come award show night, it's all about sky-high heels, dramatic dresses, and mega-watt jewelry.
And with so many great looks coming down the carpet, it can be easy to miss something truly memorable. So, consider this your opportunity to revisit those beautiful (and sometimes funny) moments that deserve their own moment to shine.
From fully appreciating Tracee Ellis Ross' stunning couture gown, to admiring the smart suiting of the Queer Eye for the Straight Guy's fab five, these are the fashion moments from the Emmy Awards that you don't want to overlook.
Below, find a breakdown of five key award night style highlights that you may have missed on your first go-around, but now you'll be thinking about these all week long ... if not until the next big red carpet on the calendar.
The Fab Five In Un-Coordinated (But Cool) Suits
Jonathan Van Ness, Bobby Berk, Tan France, Antoni Porowski, and Karamo Brown all opted for their own spin on suiting for the big night. From Jonathan's sheer shirt and pretty purse to Karamo's vest and pocket watch to Antoni's eye-catching silver boots, and let's not forget both Tan and Bobby's bold suits and bow ties, their looks were anything but basic black- tie ensembles. Consider this a lesson in getting creative on the carpet.
Tracy Ellis Ross' Epic Gown
Tracee Ellis Ross wore a Valentino Haute Couture gown that looked completely different (but equally amazing) on the runway this past July. Ross sat front row at the Valentino show earlier this year, and got ready day-of with help from her stylist, Karla Welch.
Tiffany Haddish's Dress Holder
Tiffany Haddish's custom Prabal Gurung gown stunned when she was twirling on the red carpet, but backstage, you can see just how precious it really is. Haddish was lucky enough to have a train handler help her out, holding up the caped back to keep it from gathering dust backstage.
Joey King and Zac Posen
Actress Joey King didn't just wear a Zac Posen gown on the red carpet, she brought the designer along as her date. The duo posed on the red carpet together, with Zack in a chocolate brown velvet and silk suit jacket that complemented her plum-colored gown.
Michelle Dockery's Twirl
On the red carpet, every dress deserves its moment to shine, and Dockery took it in her own hands to take things to the next level . The Downton Abbey star showed off her colorful Carolina Herrera tulle dress with a full-on twirl.
