Standout Fashion Moments Define the Ceremony
The 2024 Emmys will be remembered in part for its avant garde red carpet fashion. Structural designs were on full display, like nominee Ayo Edebiri’s 3D-molded black look. The black off-the-shoulder dress featured large structured sleeves and hips for an eye-catching sculptural effect. Her glam squad for the evening included stylist Jason Bolden and makeup artist Autumn Moultrie.
Edebiri’s “The Bear” co-star Liza Colón-Zayas also turned heads thanks to celebrity stylist Katie Bofshever. Colón-Zayas sparkled in a fringed chartreuse dress with danglingDISK earrings by Djula. The color was one of the standouts of the night, with Rhea Seehorn also sporting a bright chartreuse high neck gown.
Seehorn wore custom Louis Vuitton, designed by Nicolas Ghesquière, along with Boucheron jewelry selected by her stylist Erin Walsh. The shimmering look landed Seehorn on many best dressed lists, capping off her award season success after winning a Golden Globe for “Better Call Saul” two weeks prior.
Jessica Chastain, Margo Martindale, and Julia Garner represented their show “Beef” in coordinating shades of pink. Garner also took home her third Emmy for her portrayal of Ruth Langmore in the critically acclaimed series “Ozark”.
Garner wore a velvet halter dress by Gucci, along with Bulgari jewels. The bold red look signaled what would be another successful evening for Garner. Other standouts from the “Beef” cast included Sarah Snook and guest actor winner Steven Yeun.
See-Through Fabrics Make a Splash
Sheer fabrics ruled the silver carpet, adorning several top talents. Selena Gomez wore a sheer top and skirt by Louis Vuitton, showcasing a lace bralette and high waisted bottom. Celebrity stylists Kate Young and Mariel Haenn collaborated on the sultry look.
Kathryn Hahn also opted for a see through blouse, wearing a ruffled sheer top by Lanvin over a strapless leather bustier dress. Paired with Rene Caovilla heels and Beladora jewelry, Hahn showcased her signature cool confidence.
Ellen Pompeo made waves wearing a bedazzled long sleeved sheer top by Rasario with a necktie detail. She contrasted the top with wide leg crepe pants. Celebrity stylist Petra Flannery put together the effortlessly chic ensemble.
The sheer trend extended beyond tops, with Christy Turlington wearing a black lace catsuit to support husband Ed Burns’ nominated series “Beef”. Amanda Seyfried also donned a lace off-the-shoulder dress by Armani Privée for her appearance at the ceremony.
Memorable Moments Spotlight Talent
In addition to red carpet fashion, the 2024 Emmys also produced some viral moments that delighted fans online. When Ayo Edebiri won the Emmy for Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series, she immediately thrust her clutch into presenter Carson Daly’s hands to hold.
The charming move got laughs and underscored the rising talent’s grounded personality. Edebiri gave an enthusiastic speech, bringing castmates and show creators to tears. Her infectious joy reminded audiences of the talents behind their favorite shows.
Jennifer Coolidge also charmed the audience while accepting a supporting actress Emmy for “The White Lotus”. Her epic speech included an impromptu fake accent, quips about aging gracefully, and gratitude to creator Mike White. Fans delighted at the honest words from the legendary comedian.
The ceremony opened with last year’s winner Christina Applegate receiving a standing ovation as the night’s first presenter. Applegate had taken a break from her decades-long acting career following a MS diagnosis, so her appearance carried particular weight.
The audience welcomed her warmly, signs of support Applegate called “so beautiful”. Julia Garner also received ovations when taking the stage to present and later accept her third Emmy. After sweeping award season, Garner cemented herself as an undeniable talent at just 28 years old.
“Succession”, “The Bear”, and “Beef” Take Top Honors
HBO’s hit series “Succession” won Outstanding Drama Series, beating out prior winner “Squid Game”. Creator Jesse Armstrong skewered corporate greed in his speech, bringing laughs from the star-studded audience. “The Bear” also built on its Golden Globe win, taking home Outstanding Comedy Series.
Jeremy Allen White spoke on the show’s exploration of family, legacy, and food when accepting the award. Both series had tied records when nominated, showcasing their critical dominance.
On the limited series front, “Beef” won Outstanding Limited or Anthology Series. The tender, unexpected series featured masterful performances by leads Steven Yeun and Sarah Snook. Supporting winners Kieran Culkin and Sarah Snook also represented the lauded show.
Yeun in particular made history as the first Asian performer to win Outstanding Lead Actor in a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie. Better known for his acting in “The Walking Dead”, Yeun’s nuanced turn as tortured artist Somen “Simon” Bae represents a career milestone. As the son of Korean immigrants, Yeun carved space for Asian representation on one of entertainment’s biggest nights.
The 2024 Emmys combined glamour and talent, providing platforms for creatives working at their best. As award season carries forward, the evening showcased who and what to watch in the year ahead. Whether remembering Edebiri’s purse gag or Yeun’s historic win, audiences won’t soon forget the standouts from the star-packed event. The universal language of storytelling once again united artists and fans within the walls of television’s biggest night.
