The Emmys aren't just television's biggest night; they're one of the biggest events at the intersection of fashion and Hollywood. On Monday night at 8 p.m. ET/PT time, TV's shining stars will step onto the red carpet wearing a host of designer gowns and tuxedos.
The buzz for women is that there will be a return to vivid color, after last season's red carpet blackout to protest gender inequality and show solidarity with the Time's Up movement. The new political issue and rallying cry could be voting. At New York Fashion Week, designers and stylists were pinning black-and-white "I am a Voter" pins to their lapels and bags. The work of the Civic Culture Coalition, a group of media and entertainment companies, the pins are meant to encourage participation at the polls in November and beyond.
Last year, standouts on the Emmys red carpet included Laura Dern in Proenza Schouler, Tessa Thompson in Rosie Assoulin and Nicole Kidman in Calvin Klein. We hear this year that at least one star will be reviving an unworn look from last season's red carpet, and that American designers, who often shine at the domestic awards show, will once again be in the spotlight. But don't count out the potential for Virgil Abloh's fresh-off-the-runway Louis Vuitton menswear to make an appearance, or Kim Jones' fresh-of-the-runway Dior Homme menswear, either.
Here are 12 actors and actresses to keep an eye on. Styled by Ilaria Urbinati, though he wore Dior Homme for Rihanna's Diamond Ball this week, Donald Glover seems a lock for Gucci. He has sported a range of Gucci tuxedos and sweaters while promoting his music as Childish Gambino and his work on FX's Atlanta (he's nominated for his directing, writing and acting). TV's leading ladies, including Elisabeth Moss, Claire Foy and Issa Rae are also expected to go glam again.
Here's why we're excited to see these stars' style at the Emmys on Sept. 17.
