The most memorable looks from the Emmys red carpet

We’re thrilled that red carpets are well and truly back in Hollywood, with the Emmys being the latest event to dish up some fabulous looks.

While there were numerous winners on the red carpet, the big prizes only went to a small handful of shows.

The Crown and Ted Lasso won the top prizes of best drama and best comedy respectively, while The Queen’s Gambit was named best limited series.

Olivia Colman and Josh O’Connor from The Crown won the top television Emmy awards for drama actors on a banner night for British talent.

After a season that focused on the unhappy marriage of Prince Charles and Princess Diana, The Crown also brought wins for supporting actors Gillian Anderson (as former British prime minister Margaret Thatcher) and Tobias Menzies (the late Prince Philip), as well as for writing and directing.

“We’re all thrilled. I am very proud. I’m very grateful. We’re going to party,” said Peter Morgan, creator of The Crown, at a gathering in London for the cast and crew.

An exuberant Kate Winslet was named best actress for her turn as a troubled detective in the limited series Mare of Easttown, while Ewan McGregor won for playing fashion designer Halston.

Jason Sudeikis, the star and co-creator of Ted Lasso, was named best comedy actor and the show brought statuettes for Britons Hannah Waddingham and Brett Goldstein for their supporting roles in the heartwarming tale of a struggling English soccer team.

“This show is about family. This show’s about mentors and teachers and this show’s about teammates. And I wouldn’t be here without those three things in my life,” Sudeikis said on accepting the award.

But it wasn’t all plain sailing. Ted Lasso lost the comedy writing and directing awards to Hacks, about a fading stand-up female comedian played by Jean Smart, who got a standing ovation when she was named best comedy actress.

Concerns over the Delta variant of the coronavirus forced Sunday’s ceremony to move to an outdoor tent in downtown Los Angeles, with a reduced guest list and mandatory vaccinations and testing.

Lady Gaga dubbed ‘The Icon’ on PEOPLE’s best dressed list

Lady Gaga on Wednesday led a list of PEOPLE magazine’s best-dressed celebrities that included Euphoria star Zendaya and Oscar-winning actress Viola Davis.

Gaga was dubbed “The Icon” in PEOPLE’s best dressed of the year issue, despite never having set foot on a red carpet. Instead, the magazine praised her high fashion street looks that ranged from “a sculptural seersucker number to a black lace corseted gown”.

Zendaya, Davis, Leslie Odom Jr., Anya Taylor-Joy, Mindy Kaling, Cynthia Erivo, Dan Levy, Regina Hall and musician H.E.R. also made the Top 10 list for swapping “cozy sweats for chic couture” this year.

“No one delivered more wow factor this year than Zendaya,” PEOPLE said of the 25-year-old actress, referring to her cut-out gowns on red carpets.

Odom Jr., who starred in One Night in Miami, was chosen for bringing colour to menswear on the red carpet, Davis was heralded for showcasing designers of colour, and “Schitt’s Creek” actor Dan Levy was dubbed “Fan Favorite” for his playful vibe.

The magazine’s best-dressed issue hits newsstands on Friday.
