If there’s one thing all Who What Wear beauty editors have in common, it’s that we all revere the Emmy Awards as the epitome of style. Of course, the 2024 Emmys are gearing up to be a show to remember, with television’s biggest night celebrating its 75th anniversary. The event has been long awaited, and if the past couple of star-studded red carpets have been any indication of what we can expect, we’re fully prepared to be amazed.
What’s more, the first few red carpet events of the New Year possess the unique ability to dictate the beauty trends we’ll be seeing for the remaining 351 days of the year, so we’ll be paying extremely close attention to the stunning standouts. Ready to see which looks caught our eye this time around? Keep scrolling to discover the 28 best beauty looks from this year’s Emmys red carpet. We’ll be reporting on our favourite looks throughout the evening, so don’t click away!

Rae looks downright ethereal with glossy chocolate lips (one of the biggest trends of 2024), flirty lashes, and an ultra-glowy complexion.
Morrone stuns in a bronzed and glowy barely-there makeup look featuring flushed cheeks, mauve lips, and feathered eyebrows.
Clearly, bow hair accessories are another trend we’ll be seeing beyond the New Year. We’ll be taking notes from Keough and wearing ours with ponytails.
The Crown’s Elizabeth Debicki looks like royalty with sleek strands, rosy lips, and a warm wash of colour on the cheeks.
