With subtle hints of off-white, cream, nude, and bronze, she was undoubtedly one of the golden girls for 2018 Emmy Awards. Feminine and simple, she doesn’t escape the eyes of fashion spectators with those frilly and ethereal details that make up her overall look.

This custom evening gown is a mix of pattern, texture, and embellishment that made her sparkle throughout the night. We’ve added this look to the list because it not only celebrates the beauty of the female figure, but it exquisitely cuts above the rest.

Julia Garner’s “flapper girl” outfit for this year’s Emmy Awards gives us nothing short of The Great Gatsby vibes. Wearing a 1920s-inspired light-pink satin blouse and matching trousers, she paired them with a multi-strand pearl necklace and ornate hairpin. She kept her beauty look simple and rosy to balance her fair complexion. As she glowed from head to toe in a Jazz Age ensemble, she accepted her win for Best Supporting Actress, and we can say that she definitely deserves it. It shows that with the new normal or not, this rising star can’t be stopped with her creative fashion sense.

Whoever said you can’t celebrate in pajamas probably doesn’t know how to have fun. We’re guessing that person is not Jennifer Aniston. A forever icon and a “dream girl”, the Hollywood darling proves to us, yet again, that she shines even outside the common fashion and beauty standards. Donning a face mask and a pair of comfy pajamas, all while sipping champagne and blowing a kiss to the thousands of live viewers, she shows a unique yet very real and relatable side of every woman. And if you need a reminder to splurge a set of lovely loungewear for yourself, this is it.

Among the many ways you can describe Regina King’s 2020 Emmy Awards fashion look, it would be this word: Sensational. If we’re talking about glamming up, there’s no better way to do it than with a high-low skirt to show off those sexy legs, a dramatic oversized pouf, and an explosion of silver embellishments. But the knockout number doesn’t end there. Her beauty look also consists of bright blue-lined eyes, and a fun and flirty updo. The level of fabulousness she shows off has skyrocketed, paying homage to her superhero character in the multi-Emmy awarded show, Watchmen.
