The Best Dressed Men at the Primetime Emmy Awards 2018

After the international films festivals wrapped last week, another much awaited star studded event was the Emmy Awards. And with great series like “Westworld”, “This Is Us”, “Handmaid’s Tale” and “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”, it’s bound to be a night full of excitement. Now of course, down to our usual business – picking those who shined brighter on the red carpet. It may look fun and easy, but it’s actually challenging to choose just a few – especially when nearly every men dress similarly. But as always, we delivered. Check this list now.

The Conventionals

Trevor Noah

Host of “The Daily Show” and one of TV’s most brilliantly critical comedian at the moment came in a simple tuxedo. But the South African upped the ante with some velvet details: on his lapels, his cuffs, his pockets, even his bowtie and his derbies!

Justin Hartley

Justin Hartley of “This is Us” is lucky to be born with that classic All-American look. Chiseled jawbone, blonde hair, and a very dashing smile. No wonder pulling a classic black tie combo makes him an instant tinseltown icon – especially with those silk peak lapels.

William H. Macy

The senior character actor from “Shameless” did one very important but subtle play on his outfit to stand out more: color coordination. We haven’t seen that many charcoal tux set in a while, and Macy is just ever so graceful to show us a perfect example.

Lakeith Stanfield

The rising star is having a great year – including his series “Atlanta” having multiple nominee and win last night. It’s just suitable when he came in strong, emulating a Hollywood vintage standard: the white dress jacket. Added with a splendid rose brooch on his shawl lapel.


The Mavericks

Joe Keery

Forever with his signature hairstyle (that surprisingly works in formal attire), Joe Keery of “Stranger Things” extended his charm through his tux. Blue instead of black, shorter cut and cuffs for his pants, and bold move with no socks under his velvet slip-ons.

Darren Criss

Not only did Darren won one of the most prestigious awards of the night for playing serial killer Andrew Cunanan on “American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace”, he also made heads turn with a tux set that are just too glorious for words.

Nicolaj Coster-Waldau

Another playful dress jacket, another velvet, but with a tone that lit up the red carpet last night. Probably mirroring the events happening to his character in the latest season of “Game of Thrones”, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau looked fiery in the mahogany jacket.


As always for formal events, the queen (who won another for his famed reality race) was dressed according to the dress code. Doesn’t mean it has to be boring, though. With many came flashing patterns, RP showed just a splash – but those orange boots are awesome.


BONUS: The Unisons

The Hosts

The anchor duo of “Saturday Night Live’s Weekend Update” came in two very distinct styles. Colin Jost in burgundy, and Michael Che in black with no tie. But they can’t help to present themselves as an inseparable pair.

The Fab Five

Does it really need any further explanation? The Queer Eye guys not only dressed as each and every one of them please, but translates their respective characters through their outfits (dare we say it?) fabulously.
