The Emmy Awards 2021: Gentlemen of the Red Carpet

The return of the Primetime Emmy Awards entered its 73rd annual event as the famous U.S television awards were handed out during the ceremony on Sunday 19th September 2021. Hosted at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, the awards celebrated those in categories such as Outstanding Drama Series, Lead Actor in a Drama SeriesLead Actress in a Comedy Series and much more. As the red carpet was rolled out once more to welcome those nominated and attending, we were treated to more spectacular formal looks. Here are some of the most dapper outfits from the gentlemen of the red carpet at this year's Emmy's, starting with:

American actor and stand-up comedian Cedric the Entertainer was the host for this year's televised Emmy Awards and for the red carpet, sported a lovely bright blue double-breasted two-piece. The jacket was a six-button design in a metallic finish to also match the buttons of the jacket cuffs and finished with a contrasting wide black peak lapel, wearing a black formal shirt and bow tie underneath. The welt pocket blended in with one of the three shades of blue whilst the jet pockets are also a contrasting black detail to make it extra sharp. The back is double vent design and the trousers finished with noticeable centre crease and blue stripe down the sides for that summery tuxedo vibe.

American actor, writer and comedian Jason Sudeikis came away with two Emmy's on the night, one in the category Lead Actor in a Comedy Series and the second in Outstanding Comedy Series for the show, "Ted Lasso". On the red carpet, the actor arrived sporting a slate blue velvet evening piece, worn with a black stud dress shirt and velvet bow tie. The jacket is single-breasted with a two-button fastening and three flapped pockets, a white pocket square just showing in the welt pocket. Wide peak lapels are distinguished in this piece with reinforced stitches around them and the collar for extra detail, and a buttonhole left unfastened on the cuffs. The shoulders are padded with a subtle round shape at the tops of the sleeves to compliment the curved hem of the jacket and contrast the sharp centre crease on the trousers.

Turning up to the Emmy's in a shimmery two-piece white Dolce and Gabbana suit, American actor Leslie Odom Jr. was nominated for his role in the film, "Hamilton," in the category Lead Actor in a Limited Series or Movie. The jacket, trousers and crew neck shirt were all heavily embellished in crystal beading for a show-stopping suit, made a little bit casual through the styling of his white boots and the shirt itself. On the jacket were wide peak lapels and two flapped pockets with a single-button front, the hem slightly rounded to maintain a cutting edge look. The shoulders are padded and the trousers a slim cut as the centre creases on them make the look stronger.

A Brioni ensemble was Canadian actor and comedian Seth Rogen's choice of attire for the night, featuring a dusky orange evening jacket paired with light brown trousers and a beige shirt with accompanying bow tie and covered button placket. The jacket is a shawl collar choice with just the one button for the fastening, styled with a welt pocket and two double jet pockets below the waist. The cuffs are a subtle turned up feature with smaller fabric covered buttons above. With a curved jacket hem to match the shawl collar well, the trousers are a straight slim cut with pockets on the side and the classic front crease too for a cool, relaxed evening finish.

Josh O'Connor

Winner of Lead Actor in a Drama Series for his role in the show, "The Crown", British actor Josh O'Connor combined sophistication and dapper into his Loewe ensemble. A tailcoat was the preferred top piece designed with an eight-button front and thin double jet pockets. The hem on the front is sharp, whilst the shoulders are padded and the peak lapels are contrasting with a fold-over detail to style them into the notch design. His white dress shirt is obscured through the black ribbon tie and flower centralised on the collar. The trousers are cut straight with the hem just finishing above the shoe and the lining of the tailcoat shimmering nicely in the spotlight to ensure its design on the red carpet is known.

Daveed Diggs

American actor and singer Daveed Diggs was nominated in the category Supporting Actor in a Limited Series or Movie for his role in the film, "Hamilton", which won Outstanding Variety Special (Pre-Recorded). On the red carpet and for the event, he sported a sequinned Versace number styled with a pair of black tuxedo trousers designed with light pink satin side stripes. The jacket design blends from light pink sequins to grey and black pieces on the bottom half of the jacket and sleeves. With contrasting peak lapels and collar on the jacket, the black bow tie matches perfectly and creates a cohesive look, the rich glamour enhanced through the gold dress studs on the dress shirt: a very fancy and sleek evening suit.

"Bridgerton" star Regé-Jean Page was nominated for his role in the show in the category Lead Actor in a Drama Series as he attended the Emmy's wearing a Giorgio Armani midnight blue evening suit. The jacket is a double-breasted number with a four-button front and smooth shawl collar. With two double jet pockets near the bottom and a welt pocket on the chest, the texture of the jacket highlights the artistic curved lines in this dapper piece. His trousers are slim with the satin side stripes matching the shawl collar and his dress shirt created with a short collar and wide covered button placket for an extra smooth finish.

Canadian actor and comedian Dan Levy was also in attendance at this year's Emmy Awards as he wore an all-blue Valentino ensemble styled with black boots. The jacket is a tied fastening with wide peak lapels and two flapped pockets sitting below the waist. With the classic welt pocket too, the shoulders are padded ad the actor's light blue shirt underneath designed with a covered button placket and sharp collar. Underneath the jacket was longer panelling split down the side and finishing at the knee, allowing the lighter blue trousers underneath to stand out through the bunched hem. It's a tailored piece sharp as the blue colour itself.

Leon Bridges

American singer/songwriter Leon Bridges was dressed in a cool ensemble by The Pack by Campillo as he performed at the event with fellow American musician Jon Batiste, who wore a printed two-piece suit with wide black peak lapels. Leon's suit was a three-piece with a textured paisley contrasting waistcoat. The waistcoat was a six-button design with a tall angled notch and wide collar sitting over the lapels of the jacket. The lapels themselves were short and the jacket finished with gold embellishments on the cuffs and button front. The trousers were retro is style with a bootcut, flared finish to the hem and panelling enhanced as an extra detail on them, completed with the same golden details down the sides. With a turned up hem sitting just above the floor, it was certainly a cool red carpet look.
