The 2020 Emmy Awards are on Sunday, September 20, and, much like everything else, it’s going to look a lot different this year than it has in years past. The show will be virtual so there will be no in-person celebration to speak of. But Jimmy Kimmel will host an evening that is sure to still honor those TV shows, actors, and teams that you love so dearly. And, what’s more, it’s a sure bet that you’ve spent the past six months more acquainted with your television set than ever before, so you’re totally primed for the awards that are to come. Still, the question on most people's minds is: will there be an Emmys red carpet this year?
The Emmys red carpet is traditionally the fashion world’s entrance into Fall style inspiration. The colors, the accents, and overall vibe of the red carpet sets the tone for the season to come. Who can forget Halle Berry's purple silk gown in 2005 that preceded the rise of jewel tones, or Blake Lively's plunging red gown in 2009 right before the return of the bright color trend?
This year, celebrities will continue to make bold, sartorial statements. Nominees include style stars like Tracee Ellis Ross, Issa Rae, Zendaya, Jennifer Aniston, and Kerry Washington, who are sure to bring their A-game. And the Emmys 2020 dress code — welcoming casualwear including pajamas — will likely make for some fascinating fashion moments.
