Emma Corrin

We absolutely have no other choice than to start off our list with Emma Corrin, who swapped her 'Princess' image to don a swanky Offred avatar, complete with razor-sharp claw nails. Her slender lemon yellow gown by Miu Miu came complete with a cap that might be perceived as a fashionable take on 'Handmaid's Tale'. But the star of the story is definitely her black manicured long nails, giving us a brilliant, brilliant red carpet look.
