Here’s a (hot) red carpet. We looked forward to the stars serving the obscene at Sunday’s Emmy Awards outside the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, following last year’s virtual ceremony.
The host of the evening, comedian / actor Cedric the Entertainer joked about the demands of the attendees in his monologue. “We had to get vaccinated to come here,” said the host for the first time. “I have Pfizer because I am a candle. Pfizer is the Neiman Marcus of vaccines, then Moderna is Macy’s. Then Johnson & Johnson is TJMaxx, of course.
The limited number of celebrities in attendance did not disappoint. Dressing up for the biggest night on TV is no easy feat, and these famous faces got the mission seriously.
Here are the best dressed stars (in no particular order).

The star of “The Flight Attendant” would also look for the role on the runway of a designer. Kaley Cuoco arrived in a sunny yellow highlighter dress with embellished spaghetti strap sleeves. Her simple ponytail hairstyle was the perfect addition to her Vera Wang dress in a bold shade that she wore right down to her matching shoes.

“I May Destroy You” creator and star Michaela Coel also glowed in neon yellow. Her two-piece Christopher John Rogers design showcased her toned tummy and had a jaw-dropping arcuate train.
We are green with envy in front of the timeless Dior dress by Yara Shahidi. The “Grown-ish” lead shone in the A-line, ankle-length dress with an asymmetric off-the-shoulder neckline that she accessorized with a statement necklace.

Let Anya Taylor-Joy wear the fashion equivalent of checkmate. The “Queen’s Gambit” actress returned to old-school Hollywood glamor in a bodycon satin halterneck dress. A canary shawl, which she wore draped over her arms, added volume and color to her Christian Dior haute couture look.
Michaela Jae Rodriguez
See Michaela Jaé Rodriguez (formerly Mj Rodriguez) in the image above with her hands on her hips and leg sticking out of her slit? This is exactly how we should “Ask”. The actress looked amazing in an aqua Atelier Versace gown with a crisp cut, we’ll say it again.

Catherine zeta jones
There is something about a brunette in Bordeaux. Catherine Zeta-Jones showed off her sense of style (and a toned leg) in a strapless Christina Ottolinger with a corseted bodice.
We’re so happy that the “fabulous godmother” (or stylist) of the “Cinderella” actor has this Ashi Studio set up her pleated sleeve. The winged top is a work of art and you can tell Billy Porter knew it from the Vogue cover-worthy poses. Porter told E! Queer Eye expert Karamo Brown on E! that sculpted pieces were originally meant to go to the ground, but in the absence of longer sleeves, he considered them wings.

Jason Sudeikis took a spot on our best dressed list, but apparently his fiery gaze was stifling. The “Ted Lasso” star tells E! his Tom Ford spruce-and-velvet tuxedo was stuffy and he “got baked here like Hot Pockets.” The outfit reminded internet inspectors of Chris Evans’ Ferragamo look from the 2019 Oscars, but no one seemed to care.
Apologies to Nicole Byer and her fellow comedians around the world for that predictable moan, but when it comes to her looks, Netflix host “Nailed It!” The vibrant purple Christian Siriano dress was tailor-made just for her, and it shows in its fit and design.
What Wanda (Vision). Kathryn Hahn brought elegance to the red carpet in a strapless Lanvin look. Hahn’s oversized waistband and sparkly shoes added spice to her monochrome black outfit.
