It was the annual Primetime Emmy Awards on Sunday night in Los Angeles! And while the sparkling ceremony looked a little different this year, these A-list stars still satisfied our love of red carpet fashion with their glamorous outfits.

The show, hosted virtually by Jimmy Kimmel, saw most nominees appear from their homes to accept their awards – but there were some surprise appearances from the likes of Jennifer Aniston and Tracee Ellis Ross.

The show also paid tribute to key workers during the coronavirus crisis by enlisting the help of doctors, delivery workers and teachers to present awards to the stars.

The actress couldn't resist changing gowns on the night, either. "Haven’t dressed up in a while so had to make the most of it. Look [two]," she wrote on Instagram.
