We interrupt London Fashion Week to bring you a different kind of catwalk, courtesy of Hollywood’s A-list: the 2016 Emmys star-studded red carpet, of course. Last night, we weren’t only taking note of the fashion (or the arm candy), but looking for the “best of” beauty as well. Herein find the looks that will inspire our own glamour manifesto as we head straight for a party-filled holiday season ahead.
Kerry Washington is always at the top of our “best” everything list and last night? She did not disappoint. The Scandal actress showed off her baby bump in a custom cutout Brandon Maxwell cape dress, wearing her hair long, voluminous, and curly and her lashes equally dramatic. One word: stunning.
Quantico‘s Priyanka Chopra opted for a matte red lip and low, slicked-back ponytail, which proved striking, simple, and a perfect complement to her red, one-shouldered Jason Wu confection.
We loved Emmy winner Sarah Paulson’s polished pixie cut, strong brow, and sculpted contouring combo — a “less is more” choice to offset her green bejeweled Prada gown.
Laverne Cox of Orange is the New Black channeled Old Hollywood glamour, thanks to voluminous finger waves reminiscent of Rita Hayworth, gilded shadow, and a warm nude lip.
It wasn’t just the bold yellow Christian Siriano gown that made us do an Angela Bassett double take. The actress also rocked a blunt lob and killer dark brown lip that should be copied ASAP.
Emily Ratajkowski’s dramatic teal-lined cateye and slicked ponytail was electrifying. Who’s daring enough to follow suit on this bright look?
Game of Thrones‘ Sophie Turner turned the traditional braid on its head — and how? From the front, you might think the star opted to let her hair down; from the back, she sported a low, loose braid, wrapped tight with strands of black leather.
