One of the first to hit the red carpet was Nicole Byer, wearing custom Christian Siriano. Nominated for Outstanding Host for a Reality or Competition Program, she lost out to RuPaul at last Sunday’s Creative Arts Emmys. Asked on the E! pre-show who she would have thanked had she won, she said, “I would have thanked all the fat black ladies who came before me because there are very few of us.”
Next up was Josh O’Connor in a classic tux with a twist. Instead of the standard tie, he wore a black flower at his neck—a custom Loewe look by Jonathan Anderson.
