INDYA MOORE

The star of television series Pose radiates confidence in a high-cut bodice dress by Louis Vuitton. Indya's natural curls are amazing and, like Greta's look, their hair provides contrast. In this case, they add softness to the ensemble along with their glowing, natural makeup.

VERA FARMIGA

Another person embracing full-on block brights, Vera's red Ryan Roche dress is beautifully proportioned, and she manages to pull off both a high neck and shoulder pads on the purple carpet.

PATRICIA CLARKSON

Patricia's always one to look out for at awards ceremonies, and this year's Emmys are no different. She loves a statement sleeve, and this burgundy sequinned off-the-shoulder-gown is impeccably fitted.

RUPAUL

RuPaul makes a statement in one of his signature bold suits. Incorporating one of the night's key colours, pink, the graphic floral pattern is offset nicely with a black neckerchief and elegant shoes.

MAISIE WILLIAMS

Black can sometimes be tricky for the red carpet, but Maisie looks fantastic in this interesting and beautiful gown by JW Anderson. The contrasting fabrics, asymmetrical hem and diamante details all come together in a way that manages to be fashion-forward and elegant. Love her dark bob too.

PHOEBE WALLER-BRIDGE

Were we expecting something more sleek from the creator and star of Fleabag? Maybe, but she still looks divine in a romantic and voluminous gown by Monique Lhuillier with her signature crop keeping it from being too girly.

NATASHA LYONNE

The Russian Doll star always looks fantastic in 80s-style silhouettes, and this gold pleated Gucci dress is quirky and fabulous, just like her.

EMILIA CLARKE

Sporting her own natural dark locks, Emilia looks sleek and chic in a navy Valentino gown, paired with statement earrings and smoothly middle-parted hair. The different fabrications incorporated into the gown add interest, and while it's incredibly low-cut it still manages to be classy and classic.

SOPHIE TURNER

The Game of Thrones cast is in the house! Sansa, sorry, Sophie, wears a fitted gown by Louis Vuitton that incorporates both retro and futuristic details. She accessorised with a rather impressive diamond collar necklace.

CARICE VAN HOUTEN

The Game of Thrones star dons an artful gown by Roland van der Kemp, and it's nice to see an interesting print at this event. Carice ensures her look is stylish, not garish, with a perfect and contemporary beauty look and relaxed waves in her hair.

BUSY PHILLIPS

Michelle's bestie Busy matches her sunny personality with a sunny gown, donning a pastel tulle dress by Lela Rose. Also contrasting her hair with her dress, she kept her 'do sleek to offset the volume in the skirt and finished off with statement earrings and a clutch.

MARISA TOMEI

Pink and red was the colour combination of the 2019 Emmys, with several guests donning the shades. Marisa's asymmetrical gown is a nice interpretation of the trend, with cinching and volume in all the right places.

The Killing Eve star and owner of the best hair in the biz chose a sleek dusky pink gown by Zac Posen for the event. Sandra topped it off with her famous curls swept into a lovely up-do and dangling earrings, keeping her neckline clear.

Another example of black being anything but basic, Naomi hits it out of the park with this incredible full-skirted gown by Dior. Her hair and makeup are on point, and love how the diamonds are draped loosely around the base of her neck.
