The biggest night in TV is here! The 2020 Primetime Emmy Awards are taking place on Sunday, September 20, and the fashion is unlike anything we’ve ever seen before.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 72nd annual Emmy Awards show is going virtual, which means much less formal attire than usual. “Our informal theme for the night is ‘come as you are, but make an effort,’” a letter from the producers obtained byUs Weekly read. “If you want to be in formal wear, we’d love that, but equally if you’re in the UK and it’s 3am, perhaps you want to be in designer pajamas and record from your bed! We want to work with you to style your moments, but want you to guide us on your levels of comfort — where you want to be, who you want to be with, what you want to wear etc.”
Some sources say that stars are taking this laid-back opportunity to show off their best PJs. “The 2020 Emmys are going to be a pajama party,” an insider tells Us exclusively. “All the celebs are wearing high-end designer/custom pajamas like Dior.” For instance, Jane Lynch went wore a formal top but opted for slippers and PJ pants on the bottom.
Others such as Zendaya are still planning to go all-out for the affair. “I definitely want to pull a look and maybe just walk my living room carpet,” she told Ben Platt during an episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live! earlier this summer. Indeed, the Euphoria star’s stylist, Law Roach, shared an Instagram video of the Lead Actress-nominee’s look and it was anything but dressed down!
Informal or formal, we can’t wait to see what the stars pull out this year. Keep scrolling to take a look at all the ensembles worn for the 2020 Emmys.
