The 68th annual primetime Emmy Awards took place last night in Los Angeles. Wasting no time, host Jimmy Kimmel made a joke early on during the broadcast about diversity, saying to POC in attendance, “If you are a person of color, find a white person and reach out and say thanks for your bravery.” Kimmel also made a point to compare the Emmys to that other highly coveted award, the Oscar, or Academy Award, which as we know, has a long way to go when it comes to diversity and inclusion. But that’s Hollywood in general. But I digress, because this slideshow is all about, what? Fashion! And the style choices of women of color were very diverse last night. Some of our favorite actresses – nominated and non-nominated alike – rocked the hottest looks at the Emmys, and we present them to you in all their slaying glory.
