The Emmys, hosted this year by actor and comedian Kenan Thompson, celebrate the best of television. Last night's fun awards show was also chock-full of great fashion moments, including no fewer than four celebs in smart white suits and black shoes! Not bad for a Monday night in downtown Los Angeles. 

Here are 12 of the best looks from this year's Emmy Awards.

The Euphoria actress, who once again won the Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress In A Drama Series, was resplendent in a strapless black Valentino gown and Bulgari jewels. The look was styled by Zendaya's longtime collaborator and stylist, Law Roach.

Canadian lead actress nominee Sandra Oh shined in a purple sequin suit and blouse combo that was custom made by Rodarte. To complete the look, Oh's fashion stylist, Jordan Johnson, added matching jewelry by Cathy Waterman. 


Lizzo

The award winner didn't walk the red carpet, but her dreamy red tulle gown was one of the evening's best dresses. Like her all-black Jean Paul Gaultier look for last month's MTV Video Music Awards, it's designed to command attention.

Nominated for her work on The White Lotus, Connie Britton wore a bright pink Monique Lhuillier look from the designer's Spring 2023 collection. A sheer matching cape, worn to one side, added a stylish touch.


Seth Rogen

There were at least four white suits on the Emmys red carpet, but the best of the bunch might well be Seth Rogen's Brunello Cucinelli tuxedo. The look was styled by sisters Wendi & Nicole, who were also the team behind Nicholas Hoult's chic Dior suit last night. 


Sydney Sweeney

The supporting actress nominee, who also celebrated her 25th birthday yesterday, wore a beautiful custom-designed Oscar de la Renta gown with a bustle train that looks just as good from the side as it does from the front. 


Rosario Dawson

Strapless concoctions were popular at the Emmys this year, and Rosario Dawson's frothy Christian Siriano gown was particularly delightful, especially paired with the actress's modern, slicked-back hairstyle for the evening. 


Jean Smart

The Hacks actress wore a white, off-the-shoulder Christian Siriano dress with diamonds and Manolo Blahnik heels. She won Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series at the awards last night. 


Toheeb Jimoh

Nominated for his role on Ted Lasso, Toheeb Jimoh looked great in a black shirt and light coloured suit by Dior with a waist tie. The overall effect is relaxed, and anything but boring. 


Zuri Hall

Zuri Hall's strapless, caped and feathery Rami Kadi Maison de Couture dress is extra stunning in motion. Styled by Roberto Cardenaz, the look also included delicate jewelry and Christian Louboutin pumps.   


Sarah Paulson

Sarah Paulson wore a quirky, boxy Louis Vuitton look with Boucheron jewelry at the Emmys. The fashion-forward ensemble, with square shoulders and a dramatic peplum, was styled by Canadian stylist Karla Welch. 


Jasmin Savoy Brown

The American actress's Christopher Kane dress, from the British designer's Fall/Winter 2022 collection, was a standout at the awards show thanks to its high-shine material and daring cutouts. Brown wore the dress with a bag by Okhtein and Giuseppe Zanotti heels.
