The stars descended in all their splendor for the Emmy Awards 2022, held in Los Angeles, California. A highly anticipated event every year, the Emmys celebrate the best of television and network series, including acting, directing, and writing. This year was no different, with some amazing talents in the TV and film industry bagging the top honors.
Not leaving any stone unturned style-wise, celebrities took to the red carpet and flaunted the best designer wear. While glittering sequins dominated and matched the glamorous vibe of the night, we spotted some clean cuts and unique ensembles too. From black to color, slinky gowns to power suits, everyone made sure they brought their A-game.
Be it Amanda Seyfried and Reese Witherspoon in their sparkling Armani Privé evening gowns or Melanie Lynskey and Laura Linney in signature Christian Siriano dresses, there was visibly a lot more attention paid to the outfits while the makeup and accessories were minimal. Among the men, we have a special place in our hearts for Nicholas Hoult in a Dior creation and Andrew Garfield in his light-hued Zegna suit.
There were a lot of sartorial hits and some misses, but we’ve already picked out our favorite looks of the night. Take a look below to see our Emmys 2022 best-dressed list, and tell us which of these made your heart skip a beat!
