The Primetime Emmy Awards reward the best of Primetime US television. Like many awards, these are an excuse for designers to show what they have already shown on catwalks. But, this time, in the bodies of actors and actresses who walk the red carpet. As they are not as formal as the Oscar awards, which are granted by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, are held during the day and are awarded by the Television Academy, the Emmys allow a more casual and colorful outfit. This is why we bring you a dress for each color of the rainbow, to celebrate the diversity that we now see on the screen.
Red: Jenifer Lewis
Although this seems an inappropriate attire, because it does not comply with the gala protocol, we love it for what is behind it. The actress of the series Black-ish affirmed for E! Entertainment Television during the red carpet, that she decided to dress with Nike from head to toe to show support to Colin Kaepernick. The American football player, known for kneeling during the anthem at the start of the parties to protest against racism in the United States and against President Trump, was hired by Nike as the image to commemorate the 30 years of "Just do it". The announcement of the campaign provoked controversy on the part of Trump's supporters, who criticized the brand and the player. With this outfit, Jenifer Lewis supports and pays tribute to both.
Orange: Brian Tyree Henry
Nominated in the category of best supporting actor in a comedy series for his role as Paper Boi in Atlanta, Brian Tyree Henry wore this suit with a pattern of yellow and black that from a distance looks orange. The actor is already surprising with his outfits on red carpets. In addition to being one of this year's rising star, he is becoming not only a fashion icon but also a hot rapper with his new rap style. With this suit shows that you can look elegant wearing a bright color.
Yellow: Gaten Matarazzo
Although Stranger Things did not win any of the five prizes to which they were nominated, for the awards, the small actor wore a risky yellow jacket suit that dazzled the press from very early on, as he was among the first to arrive. Normally children and young people usually take more liberties in clothing. The look of Gaten and Brian Tyree Henry can set a precedent for men to take more risks and show bright colors in the gala protocol.
Green: Dakota Fanning
Dakota Fanning wore a dress of the house Dior of a very cool green with fall from the waist. The actress accompanied this cross-cut dress and neckline of satin straps with emerald jewelry that is the exact same tone of the dress. She used half-gathered hair to contrast with the neckline on the back of her dress. The look of the young actress was very elegant and fresh.
Blue: Issa Rae
The actress is known for producing and starring in her own web series Awkward Black Girl. On this occasion, she was nominated for best leading actress in a comedy for her leading role in the HBO series Insecure. For her first Emmy, the actress wore a design by Vera Wang in the "pantsuit" style with a cape that fell from the waist. According to the actress for the New York Times, her dress was embroidered more than 3,000 crystals.
Pink: Tracee Ellis Ross
Nominated to the Emmy for best leading actress in a series of communication for her character in the series Black-ish, the actress wore a pompous fuchsia dress that combined with a makeup of shadows of the same color and a pulled-up hair that contrasted with the volume of the dress. The design is of the house Valentino, who always steals the looks on the red carpet.
Magenta: Leslie Jones
Finally, Leslie Jones, who was nominated in the category of best supporting actress in a comedy series for her participation in Saturday Night Live, wore an iridescent costume that varies colors between blue, purple and lilac. On the red carpet, he told E! that would kiss Oprah to win the Emmy.
