AceShowbiz - Celebrities arrived at the Microsoft Theatre in downtown Los Angeles for the 2019 Primetime Emmy Awards, with Fox broadcasting the ceremony. Among those turning heads on the red carpet at the Sunday, September 22 event were Gwendoline Christie and Laverne Cox.
Gwendoline literally had everyone talking when she arrived in a regal white-and-red Gucci gown that featured gold detailing. Teaming up the look with gold earrings, the "Game of Thrones" actress styled her blonde locks into curls that parted to the side. Meanwhile, her makeup consisted of a minimal eye shadow, light blush and a bold red lip.
Given how much she oozed Greek goddess vibe on the red carpet, her outfit that night immediately became a hot topic among social media users. Some even compared her look to those of Jesus Christ's, with one joking, "Now, I personally had accepted Gwendoline Christie as my lord and savior, but I am glad it's catching on." Another said, "The G in Gwendoline Christie stands for God." There was also one who said, "Gwendoline Christie showing up to the Emmys as the goddess Supreme Leader concept."
Besides Gwendoline, Laverne also turned heads on the red carpet when she showed up in a dramatic, tulle black and lilac gown. She also brought a rainbow Parker clutch that had the words, "Oct. 8. Title VII. Supreme Court." Talking about the clutch during a candid interview, the "Orange is the New Black" actress wrote, "Maybe it's about raising awareness so everyone knows that our lives are in danger." She was referring to the Trump administration's briefing on Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which would make anti-gay discrimination legal in the workplace.
Other stars who also looked stunning in the red carpet included Jameela Jamil, Mandy Moore and Regina King. Meanwhile, this year's ceremony will not have a host and sees "Game of Thrones" dominating the nominees list.
