Celebrities like Zendaya and Regina King (pictured above) dressed to impress for the semi-virtual 2020 Emmy Awards. 

The 2020 Emmy Awards may have been mostly virtual, but the fashion was impressive. Even without a red carpet, nominees, presenters, and performers dressed up from their homes to celebrate the best in television. We're talking couture gowns and straight-from-the-runway designs, as well as a few statement-making looks. It was unlike any awards show we've seen this season, and given everything going on in the world, some sense of sartorial normalcy was refreshing. From Zendaya (who, to no surprise, stole the show) to Jennifer Aniston, keep scrolling for the best dressed celebrities during the semi-virtual 2020 Emmys. 


When it comes to fashion, Zendaya won the night. The Euphoria actress stunned in this silk taffeta dress by Christopher John Rogers with Bulgari jewelry and Louboutin heels.


Dressed so nice, she deserves to be recognized twice. During the ceremony, the actress changed into this custom Giorgio Armani Prive dress to accept the award for Best Actress in a Drama Series.

Kerry Washington 

The Little Fires Everywhere star sported a custom, black-and-gold sequined Oscar de la Renta dress that was made for celebrating. Be sure to click through to the last slide! 

Reese Witherspoon

You can't go wrong with a classic little black dress, as demonstrated by this Little Fires Everywhere actress. LBD courtesy of Louis Vuitton.
