The Emmys have a reputation for being the snooziest of the fashion awards shows — no VMAs-style zaniness or Oscars-esque prestige here. This time around, several attendees tried to challenge that tendency toward the same-old same-old by introducing some lesser-known labels, like Delpozo, Alexandre Vauthier, and Bouchra Jarrar, into the proceedings. Some, like Kerry Washington in brand-new Marc Jacobs and Lady Gaga sporting a look from her stylist Brandon Maxwell’s debut collection, even wore fresh-off-the-runway designs. We also saw plenty of takes on the white suit, a plethora of cutouts — especially of the triangle-shaped upper-stomach variety — and chains on two of TV’s most memorable leading ladies, Claire Danes and Taraji P. Henson. Not bad for a typically vanilla evening.
