The Emmys have come and gone but Emmy couture endures. We can’t get some of the dresses we saw out of our heads.
As much buzz as there is around the nominees and the winners, a certain amount of attention will always be paid as the stars come out to play in their best threads.
Here are some of the frocks that we just could not take our eyes off.
1. Angela Sarafyan
Actress Angela Sarafyan enraptured onlookers in a stunning Christian Siriano ballgown reminiscent of a star-studded night sky.
2. Poppy Delevingne
Poppy Delevingne’s Giambattista Valli gown was a next level mermaid gown with cascading ruffles all down the back. It was definitely extra, but in the best way possible.
3. Erika De La Cruz
Television host Erika De La Cruz’s canary yellow gown by Napostol Couture stood out in all the right ways.
4. Nukaaka Coster-Waldau
As big a star as her husband, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (aka Jamie Lannister) is, we found it hard to stop looking at Nukaaka Coster-Waldau’s ensemble, which seemed to perfectly suit her Greenlandic roots.
5. Jessica Biel
Ugh, we could look at this Ralph & Russo dress forever. Seriously. So many great elements to this piece – we love the structure, the ruffles, the innovative use of scalloping. It all works.
6. Heidi Klum
Heidi Klum is one of those people who could wear a potato sack and she’d probably still look amazing. So it’s no wonder that she looks stellar in this divine Zac Posen dress. Gorge.
7. Rainbow Barris
Rainbow Barris, author and wife of Black-ish‘s creator Kenya Barris, looked stunning in her Michael Leyva gown. So much delicate prettiness, so much to like.
8. Thandie Newton
Thandie Newton took home an Emmy for her efforts in Westworld but we think her pink number by Brandon Maxwell is something special too. It was gorgeous in its simplicity, cascading down and sitting in all the right places.
9. Allison Janney
Showing that age is nothing but a number, Allison Janney shone in this Prabal Gurung sequinned number.
10. Padma Lakshmi
This may be the second time she’s wearing it, but Padma Lakshmi undeniably brought the heat in a strappy J Mendel dress.
