AP & AFP – Hannah Waddingham wore Dolce & Gabbana with bedazzled high top sneakers on her feet while Elle Fanning went Old Hollywood in a gown designed by Sharon Long of her show, The Great, as glamour returned to the Emmys in sticky Los Angeles humidity.
Waddingham, from Ted Lasso, showed off her comfy white shoes beneath her corseted strapless pink look. Fanning, her hair in a pinned-back bob, said she wanted to honour the creatives on her show that provided her with her first Emmy nod. Fanning’s look was black and pink, embellished at the chest.
The stars went all out.
Zendaya, working with her stylist Law Roach, was in a classic black strapless corset look with a full skirt and dainty bow at the waist. It was Valentino, and she was dripping in Bulgari jewels, including a fresh, young white diamond choker with a centre, 4.45-carat stone at the centre. She, too, had pockets.
Connie Britton was in a gown by Monique Lhuillier in a soft pink, a cape like effect at the back. Britt Lower, from Severance, donned a Venetian beaded gown in gold with matching elbow-length gloves. There were cut outs up top and thin embellished straps.
“It felt like I wanted to wear outer space. I have an appreciation for fabrics, my mum was a home economics teacher. I feel great in it,” Lower told The Associated Press. People’s Style and Beauty Director Andrea Lavinthal, said pink carried the night, though lots of other colours brightened up the carpet.
