Celebs Add Glimmer to the Emmys Red Carpet With Sparkly Silver

The red carpet at the 2017 Emmy Awards was shining — not just from all of the stars on it, but also from what they wore. Silver proved to be a major trend of the evening, with celebs incorporating more and more sparkle into their looks in creative ways.

Laverne Cox wore a stunning gunmetal silver Naeem Khan gown to the awards. The “Orange Is The New Black” actress teamed the gown with a pair of custom-made gunmetal heels by Ruthie Davis.

Nominated for the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series award for her work on “Black-ish,” Tracee Ellis Ross wore a couture Chanel gown made for the spotlight. The dress was covered in silver sparkly sequins from neck to knees. The bottom of the statement-making piece was done in white feathers. Her pointed-toe Roger Vivier pumps matched the dress perfectly.
