The Beauty Looks at the Emmy Awards Were So Good, We Almost Forgot It Was All Virtual
The stars in (virtual) attendance at the 2020 Emmy Awards did not let a pandemic stand in the way of pulling out some epic beauty looks. Even though many were celebrating the awards show from their living rooms and the red carpet was set up in their backyards versus a glitzy venue, they really went for it with their hair, makeup, and nails.
Celebrities who showed up in real life to present — like Jennifer Anniston and Yara Shahidi — were dressed to the nines while practicing social distancing; meanwhile, nominees celebrating remotely made the virtual event into their own little party, like Reese Witherspoon and Kerry Washington. Then, you had people like Zendaya and Regina King debuted not one, but two different beauty looks throughout the evening.
From H.E.R.'s bedazzled hair to Laverne Cox's statement manicure, we rounded up all of the best beauty moments from the Emmy Awards, ahead.
