The Cast Of 'Veep's First Emmys Outfits

by Jodie Layne

After five seasons on the air, we're now all hesitantly in love with and simultaneously horrified by Julia Louis-Dreyfus' all too real Selina Meyer. It was only a few years ago in 2012, however, that the cast of Veep at the Emmys was welcomed for the first time on the red carpet.

Each individual definitely made their mark both on and off of the red carpet. The then-Emmys rookie was nominated for Outstanding Comedy Series and Louis-Dreyfus was recognized for bringing the cutthroat and clueless Vice President Meyer to life, taking home the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series award. This set the tone for how beloved and lauded Veep would be. In the three years since, the show has simply been gathering more and more acclaim and nominations.

While its costuming is not necessarily going to be filling up your Pinterest boards anytime soon — and it's never going to be haled as "fashionably iconic" — Veep's stars have always walked the red carpet in style. The cast totally killed it in 2012, taking a break from the D.C. wardrobe of power suits to sport some pretty elegant and dapper formal wear.

Let's hope that in 2015, the hilarious show brings home more than the single trophy it garnered in 2012, but that the cast looks just as good as always.
