The Emmy Awards Looks That Made Us Do a Double Take

Updated 09/18/18

Following a long summer of seemingly endless vacation days, it's time for celebrities to get back to the award show circuit, starting with tonight's highly anticipated 70th annual Emmy Awards in downtown Los Angeles. With stars like Millie Bobby Brown, Penélope Cruz, Issa Rae, Jessica Biel, and Constance Wu confirmed to attend, the 2018 Emmy Awards red carpet is guaranteed to be as chic as they come.

Not surprisingly, many of this fall's and next spring's trends are represented on the red carpet tonight, including neon and '80s glam. The beauty of the Emmy Awards is that it falls right smack dab in the middle of spring fashion month, so the nominees, presenters, and other attendees (who aren't wearing a custom-made dress, that is) have their pick of some of the freshest gowns available, straight from the runway. In fact, based on tonight's looks, no one could ever say TV stars aren't as stylish as movie stars. Keep scrolling to see the Emmy Awards looks that are making us do a double take and that everyone will still be talking about tomorrow morning.
