1) Taraji P. Henson

Henson proved that plum is her color. The actress — who presented the Outstanding Limited or Anthology Series award — looked statuesque in a bespoke Atelier Versace gown. The figure-flattering design featured pleated fabric that cinched in at her waist, a tasteful opening at the bodice and a thigh-high slit. The dress was completed with a whimsical train that blew in the air as Henson owned the red carpet. Henson allowed the dress to be the focal point, wearing her hair in a sleek high ponytail. For glam, she opted for purple eyeshadow. 

2) Jessica Chastain 

Only Chastain can make neon green look elegant. The TV star — who was nominated for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie for her role in George & Tammy — lit up the Peacock Theatre in a custom Gucci gown. The bespoke sequin creation featured a plunging neckline that fell into a fringe skirt.

3) Christina Ricci

Ricci was a walking representation of the timeless fashion tip: less is more. The Yellowjackets actress opted for a classic, cleavage-baring black gown by Saint Laurent. She drew attention to her bust with an emerald pendant necklace and accessorized with a black envelope clutch. Her jet-black locks perfectly complemented her dark ensemble, and she topped her look off with a smokey eye. 

4) Ayo Edebiri 

Edebiri managed to make leather look dainty thanks to Louis Vuitton. The actress, who won Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy for her performance in The Bear, donned a strapless design by the French fashion house that featured billowing pleats. The frock felt delicate, experimental and a little flirty.

5) Tracee Ellis Ross

Ross never makes fashion mistakes, and Monday’s ceremony was no different. She looked artful in all-white ensemble by Sportmax, including a modernized peplum top and a structural skirt. Ross added contrast with a bold red lip and gold sandal heels.
