Zendaya’s daring gown at Emmys

 

 

Celebrities are calling into today's Emmy Awards from their homes but rest assured they're still dressing up for the occasion.

TV's night of nights has had to forego the glitzy red carpet due to the coronavirus pandemic, but for those of us who tune in purely for the fashion our favourite stars are still serving glamorous looks from their lounge rooms.

Best lead actress in a drama nominee Zendaya is one of the first actress' to show off her gown, taking to Instagram to unveil her elegant Christopher John Rogers outfit with open neckline, cinched purple waistband and peplum style skirt.

The Euphoria star teamed the dress with breathtaking Bulgari jewels and Christian Louboutin heels.

Zendaya took to Instagram to declare this was her “first look” for the evening.

An email sent to nominees, obtained by People last week, stated the dress code had not been set for the virtual event but that the Emmys hoped guests would glam up.

"Our informal theme for the night is 'come as you are, but make an effort'. If you want to be in formal wear, we'd love that."

The Television Academy is set to honour the year in television with an entirely virtual ceremony today, which kicks off at 10am on Foxtel's Arena channel.

Executive producers Reginald Hudlin and Ian Stewart revealed that hi-tech camera and audio setups were being sent to each nominee to ensure that viewers see the best possible feed.

"It's not going to work properly all the time. It's just not," Stewart said. "We've just got to embrace that."
