No red carpet? No problem!

While the coronavirus pandemic has turned Hollywood on its head, as the saying goes—the show must go on—and go on it did Sunday, Sept. 20 for the 2020 Emmys. With Jimmy Kimmel back at the helm as host (this time for the first virtual show in Emmys history), a star-studded list of nominees and plenty of camera feeds, fans were able to see their favorite celebrities regardless of how remote the ceremony was this time around. 

And, while the "informal" dress theme had been described as "come as you are, but make an effort," judging by what viewers saw last night, many of the familiar faces participating went above and beyond to make the event an unforgettably stylish one...even if they were just in their houses.  

Given the extra challenges of getting glammed up in the age of social distancing, we'd certainly like to give these winning looks an A++.

Best Dressed Stars Ever at the Emmys

Without further ado, here are the best dressed stars at this year's Emmys. While everyone who got dressed at all deserves a medal during these isolated times, going that extra mile in the name of fashion warranted a round of applause. 

Kerry Washington

The Little Fires Everywhere star sported two looks during the 2020 show—and nailed it both times. 

Tracee Ellis Ross

The black-ish star said she missed "a pretty dress" and she seriously delivered thanks to this ruffled Alexandre Vauthier gown. 

Nina Parker

The Nightly Pop co-host delivered the red carpet glamour we've all been missing this year. 

Regina King

While the actress opted for something a bit more comfortable to actually wear during the show, King posed in this magnificent Schiaparelli Couture look in honor of the virtual ceremony. 

Tituss Burgess

A rhinestone-embellished short set? Ladies and gentlemen, this is how you do athleisure for the at-home Emmys. 

Regina King

The Watchmen star's Emmys outfit was equal parts style and substance thanks to her vibrant pink jacket layered on top of a T-shirt of Breonna Taylor's picture and the phrase, "Say Her Name."

Tony Shalhoub

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel star brought some vintage vibes to his at-home Emmy look thanks to a velvet jacket and printed tie. 

Jameela Jamil

The Good Place star expertly elevated her Emmys pajamas with a sequin ombre coat by Markarian. 


The first-time Emmy nominee's regal purple Christopher John Rogers look and coordinating jewels certainly gave fans all over the world euphoria. 

Yvonne Orji

The Insecure star was anything but in this crimson one-shoulder design that brought the perfect level of sartorial drama for the virtual show.
