In 2020, everything — including Hollywood’s biggest awards shows — are looking a little different. The 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards are no exception to the rule of virtual red carpets, live-streamed announcements, and of course, face masks. As a result, stars have taken new approaches to their awards show style. While some of the entertainment industry’s top players have taken the opportunity to put on their best look yet, others are dressing for the 2020 Emmy Awards with a more low-back style. After all, in the age of social distancing and staying at home, why not?
Some of the best fashion moments from the 2020 Emmys have already happened on the virtual red carpet — where Hollywood’s A-list stars are taking the concept of “all dressed up and nowhere to go” to a completely new level. That said, others are enjoying the evening of celebrating each other with a more comfortable take. Take Octavia Spencer, who’s nominated for Best Actress in a Limited Series or TV Movie. The actor sported a floral print kimono-style Tadashi Shoji dress with jewelry from Sophie Ratner and VRAI to enjoy the evening on her couch.
Of course, there are also Emmy attendees — like Regina King — who are doing both. The Emmy-nominated Watchmen actor stunned with a photoshoot from her virtual red carpet in a voluminous royal blue Schiaparelli couture gown, showcasing what she would have worn for the in-person event. However, as she broadcasts the show from her home, she’s sporting a fuchsia suit, also by Schiaparelli, with a Breonna Taylor tee.
