The biggest names in TV stardom turned up dressed to the nines for last week’s 70th Primetime Emmy Awards. Nominees, presenters and their guests alike all put their best feet – and wardrobes – forward for the small screen’s biggest night of the year. Some fell short of their mark, but most set the fashion bar very, very high, indeed. Here are some dresses that outshone the rest on the Emmys 2018 red carpet.
Pristine whites were the shade of choice for many a TV celeb walking the Emmys 2018 Red Carpet. Spanish actress Penelope Cruz channeled vintage Hollywood glam in a gorgeous sleeveless A-line ballgown by Chanel. The Crown‘s Claire Foy, meanwhile, opted for a timelessly elegant shin-length sheath dress adorned simply with a bow on its back.
Pretty pinks seemed to be back in favour, with Stranger Things’ Millie Bobby Brown dressed in an adorably age-appropriate off-shoulder dress from Calvin Klein by Appointment, whose cuteness was raised considerably by the rose prints that dominated the garment. There was nothing innocent about Thandie Newton’s sultry look, however. She upped the sex factor of the entire Emmys 2018 Red Carpet with a figure-hugging, bubblegum prink one-shoulder gown by Brandon Maxwell.
Other bold hues were also very much in evidence, with This is Us‘ Mandy Moore opting for a custom-made Rodante dress in an unusual amber shade. For Michelle Dockery, who starred as Lady Mary Crawley in the acclaimed British TV show Downton Abbey, the absolutely right choice was a lovely, airy blue tulle number by Caroline Herrera.
