The usual red carpet at the 72nd Emmy Awards is very different, but stars are still putting their best fits forward for this year’s virtual event, whether they are dressed up or down.
Jameela Jamil opted for casual chic, wearing a rainbow sequined robe from Markarian NYC over an all-white pajama set. “No bra? No heels? NO PROBLEM,” Jamil wrote in an Instagram post featuring the outfit. “Wearing PJ’s to the 72nd Emmy awards (from my house) is my kind of vibes.” Jamil plays Tahani Al-Jamil on NBC’s “The Good Place,” which is up for seven awards tonight.
“Euphoria” star Zendaya, on the other hand, who is nominated for outstanding lead actress in a drama series, didn’t let the show’s virtual nature stop her from dressing to the nines. She wore a beautiful black and purple gown by designer Christopher John Rogers, complete with jewelry from Bvlgari. Rogers shared a video of Zendaya showing off his dress.
“Hollywood” actor Jeremy Pope also came to impress with his Emmys look: a patchwork suit in varying shades of brown. In addition to sharing a solo shot of himself, Pope tweeted out a photo with his date, who was none other than his mom.

“The Morning Show” star Jennifer Aniston was the epitome of comfort in her pre-Emmys outfit, which consisted of grey pajamas, a face mask and a glass of champagne. “Emmys prep… in my other mask,” Aniston wrote in her Instagram post. Aniston later presented the first award of the night in a simple yet stunning black gown.
Mark Duplass mixed fancy and casual by adding a tuxedo jacket over a flannel pajama shirt. “Tonight’s look brought to you by old ass tux jacket from ‘Cyrus’ awards season and Target’s limited Clark Griswold Christmas Jammies collection,” Duplass captioned an Instagram selfie.

Tracee Ellis Ross looked like a living Emmy award in a gold Alexandre Vauthier gown and Jimmy Choo heels to match. “How fun to get dressed up! Can’t say I miss the frenetic energy of the red carpet or wearing high heels, but boy do I miss a pretty dress!” Ross wrote on Instagram.
Kerry Washington showed off a smoky eye look and blue ruffled shirt in a post to social media, writing: “Things look a little different this year but the gratitude remains the same.” Later on, she changed into two different dresses, including a strapless gown with a flower pattern and a sequined cheetah print dress adorned with beads.
Washington’s “Little Fires Everywhere” co-star, Reese Witherspoon, went for a classic look in a black dress with bow accents. Blue jewelry, a red lip and a glass of champagne completed the outfit.
