Emmys fashion: white-hot, glamorous and political

By

Published

Under a bright California sun, Tinseltown's A-listers sparkled on the Emmys red carpet on Monday in sultry satin dresses, eye-catching beaded gowns -- and even a few pairs of sneakers -- as they gathered to honor the best in television.

From white-hot frocks to sexy pantsuits to sartorial statements that are political too, the following is a look at the styles and trends making waves at the Microsoft Theater in downtown Los Angeles.

Once upon a time, US fashion mavens said wearing white after Labor Day in early September was a definite no-no.

But on a summery afternoon in the City of Angels, with the mercury hitting 83 degrees Fahrenheit (28 Celsius), white gowns were white-hot.

Actress Scarlett Johansson, the girlfriend of Emmys host Colin Jost, wore a sizzling, sculptural strapless gown with a plunging V neckline and a daring slit.

Kristen Bell, star of NBC's nominated comedy "The Good Place," looked elegant in a long-sleeve form-fitting white column dress, her hair pulled back in a classic bun.

For the guys, "This Is Us" star Milo Ventimiglia -- minus the mustache his character Jack Pearson is known for -- and "Atlanta" star Lakeith Stanfield went with old-school white dinner jackets.

And RuPaul -- already a winner for best reality show host for "RuPaul's Drag Race" -- rocked a killer double-breasted Calvin Klein white suit with the Statue of Liberty emblazoned in a black pattern on the jacket.

- Women wear the trousers -

During the last awards season, "Westworld" star Evan Rachel Wood wore trouser suits to every event to make a statement.

At the Emmys, the women of Hollywood followed her example.

Issa Rae, the creator and star of HBO comedy "Insecure," looked regal in a crystal-beaded gauzy pale blue Vera Wang gown, which opened to reveal pants underneath.

Tatiana Maslany, who is nominated for lead actress in a drama for "Black Orphan," wore a daring Christian Siriano ensemble, with a chartreuse one-shoulder top and black pants.

And "Saturday Night Live" star Leslie Jones -- hoping to win her first Emmy -- slayed in an iridescent pink and blue suit, also from Siriano.

- The future's so bright... -

In Los Angeles, sunglasses are de rigueur, so it's no surprise they were the must-have red carpet accessory.

"This Is Us" star Sterling K Brown, a favorite to take home the Emmy for best lead actor in a drama, was the epitome of cool in a traditional Dolce and Gabbana tuxedo and dark sunglasses.

Brian Tyree Henry, a nominee for best supporting actor in a comedy for "Atlanta," paired mirrored blue round glasses with his snappy orange chevron-patterned jacket.

- Making a (political) statement -

Hollywood red carpets have been criticized in recent years for turning into vapid affairs, especially in the wake of the Time's Up and #MeToo movements.

At the Emmys, the stars were asked deeper questions -- but some didn't need to be asked.

Veteran actress Jenifer Lewis, who stars on ABC's nominated comedy "black-ish," let the clothes do the talking. She wore a custom Nike sweater and leggings in support of former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick.

"I am wearing Nike to applaud them for supporting Colin Kaepernick and his protest against racial injustice and police brutality," she told Hollywood news outlet Variety.

Kaepernick, who was effectively blacklisted by the National Football League after kneeling during the US national anthem in 2016 in solidarity with the "Black Lives Matter" movement, is featured in Nike's latest ad campaign.
