From January Jones' green jumpsuit to Cat Deeley's shimmering maternity dress, the star style at the Emmys 2015 was utterly dazzling.
Our favourite small screen stars were out in full force last night, as Hollywood played host to the 67th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards 2015. It was a chance for us to see the likes of Scandal’s Kerry Washington and Downton Abbey’s Joanne Froggatt display their elegant red carpet style.
And display it, they did, as celebrities sauntered into the award ceremony wearing floor-skimming gowns, chic jumpsuits and shimmering fabrics – we’re looking at you, Cat Deeley. So, join us as we gaze upon these beautiful designer creations, starting with the unexpected green number that January Jones was sporting.
The Mad Men actress eschewed a traditional gown for a floaty, strapless jumpsuit that featured flared trousers and a pretty, golden brooch pinned at the waist. Such a statement look needed little more than a selection of simple rings, while hair was equally fuss-free, with a centre parting and some bounce blowdried into the tips.
After her recent pregnancy announcement, Cat Deeley debuted her growing baby bump in a glittering gold gown by Monique Lhuillier. Just beautiful.
As Viola became the first black woman to win an Emmy, she delivered an incredible, impassioned speech on the difficulties that women of colour face in getting lead acting roles. “You cannot win an Emmy for roles that are simply not there,” she said to a cheering audience, before noting that “[her] story doesn’t end here,” and there are great strides to be taken when it comes to diversity in Hollywood.
Amongst a sea of LBDs, the dramatic purple skirt on Maggie’s strapless Oscar de la Renta gown was a breath of fresh air.
Orange Is The New Black star Laura Prepon stunned in a scarlet dress with a mermaid train. How apt that it’s nearly a perfect match for the shade of the red carpet.
As the final season of Downton Abbey debuted on ITV last night, Laura hit the Hollywood scene in a breezy gown with a pretty, floral design.
Though the structured waist on this Brandon Maxwell gown is suitably quirky, this is a subdued – and entirely stunning – look on Lady Gaga.
From the statement detail on the shoulders to the golden tips at the bottom of the skirt, there’s nothing we don’t like about Kerry’s chainmail style dress.
Downton star Joanne wore a J Mendel gown that was very un-Anna. We love the subtle cut-out details and the dramatic, floaty train.
Julia proves that you can never go wrong with a simple, little black dress. Her one-shouldered pick was enhanced by the glistening diamonds on her bracelet and earrings.
Another star who opted for classic black in a flattering silhouette, Modern Family’s Julie showed us how to do the mermaid train.
Sofia never fails to stun with her red carpet outfit choices, and this metallic silver gown by St. John was no different.
It’s not just Kathy’s beautiful dress that earned her top style points last night. The actress completely wowed us with her choice of red lip and on trend, slicked-back hair.
Jane suited up in style in this sophisticated monochrome outfit, which she topped off with a smoky eye and swathes of diamonds around her neck.
Nothing amps up a little black dress like a flowing train and a sparly cuff, as demoed beautifully by actress Jamie Lee Curtis.
Supermodel Heidi elevated the glamour in sheer, lemon Versace, which featured ruffles on one shoulder and plenty of glitter on the skirt.
Mad Men’s Elisabeth was one of many stars who sported pink last night. With her matching lipstick and newly-lightened hair, we’d call it a fashion triumph.
A far cry from the agent attire that her Homeland character Carrie wears, Claire shimmered in sequinned Prada, complete with chunky chain details. A little different yes, but it really works.
The little black dress isn’t always the safe option. Here, Amanda shows how a cut-out midriff and deep V-neck can make even the simplest dress dramatic.
We love how the detail of a peekaboo waist on Amy’s halterneck, column gown takes the classic black dress to stylish new heights. Just add chunky bangles, and you’re set.
Also making a case for metallics, Christina donned a studded Naeem Khan design that fitted her like a glove.
To collect her award for Outstanding Variety Sketch Series, Amy wore a green, strapless Zac Posen gown that enhanced her tan and complemented her smoky eye makeup.
