All The Alphets From The Emmys 2020’s Virtual Red Carpet

Just like the MTV Video Music Awards last month, this year’s Emmys are, well, a little bit different (and dystopian). Emmy presenters are handing out awards in hazmat suits, there’s no audience to ostensibly laugh at host Jimmy Kimmel’s jokes, and the incredibly talented nominees aren’t heading to a giant amphitheatre surrounded by their fellow talented colleagues in the biz, but are instead accepting their awards… from their living rooms.

So, fittingly, the informal theme for the Emmys 2020 is to “come as you are, but make an effort.”

“If you want to be in formal wear, we’d love that, but equally if you’re in the UK and it’s 3am, perhaps you want to be in designer pajamas and record from your bed,” the Emmys told nominees in a statement last week, via People. “We want to work with you to style your moments, but want you to guide us on your levels of comfort – where you want to be, who you want to be with, what you want to wear etc.”

So without further adieu, here’s what your faves casually and classily wore at the Emmys 2020 virtual red carpet.
