Emmys 2020: Regina King stuns in blue head-turning Schiaparelli gown, fans say ‘she’s a knockout’
The ongoing pandemic has put a halt on everything with many nations imposing strict measures to curb the spread of the virus. The entertainment industry worldwide has also faced the brunt of the pandemic. With the MTV VMAs and Country Music Awards now behind us, the pandemic-era award show season is fully underway and Emmys 2020 is the next in line. The 2020 virtual Emmys premiered on Sunday, September 20, 2020, beginning at 8 pm ET/ 5 pm PT.
The virtual award ceremony was broadcast on ABC. Jimmy Kimmel returned to host the show for the third year, this time from a stage inside of Los Angeles’ Staple Center. The remote Emmys did not have a live audience due to Covid-19. Producers of the show sent more than 130 cameras to nominees in 10 countries, a big technical undertaking for the virtual event. The award show didn’t have a red carpet with the stars dressed up to the nines but despite taking place virtually in the middle of the pandemic, a handful of celebrities decided not to hold back when it came to serving red-carpet-worthy looks.
Regina King, who took home the best actress in a limited series award for her role as Angela Abar in HBO's limited television series 'Watchmen', shared her red-carpet look wearing a vibrant blue, brooch-adorned, assymetrical-hemmed couture gown by Schiaparelli. Completing her outfit, King accessorized it with diaphanous earrings by Bondeye Jewelry, gold rings by Established Jewelry and strappy heels by Stuart Weitzman. King dazzled from head to toe, and for her beauty look, she wore a chic, high top bun in her natural texture with curled tendrils hanging loose. The actress kept her makeup-look soft, rocking a coral-hued blush, pale-pink lipstick, and a subtly smudged eye with a bright blue eyeliner, adding just the right amount of oomph to the whole look.
Even with red carpet canceled, King decided to go all out and get her glam on for the Emmy Awards 2020 ceremony and fans can't keep calm. Many users took to Twitter to comment on King's choice of outfit. One user tweeted, "Stunning! Absolute best I've seen her." Another one wrote, "She’s a knockout!"
