The Pose nominee paid homage to both old and new Hollywood, stylist Katie Bofshevor said, in an Atelier Versace gown. The actress actually sketched the initial idea for the dress, which eventually became the final look that debuted on the red carpet.
The Handmaid's Tale star went "bronzed, cool and sexy" for her first nomination, stylist Elizabeth Saltzman said, in a Tom Ford tank dress pulled straight off the runway. As for the actress' shoes, they matched the ones from Ford's fashion show, but were made custom to fit the star's feet.
With help from stylist Jason Bolden, the actress channeled Dorothy Dandridge and old-school Hollywood in a custom green off-the-shoulder Dior dress paired with a Cartier necklace featuring 170 emeralds and more than 200 diamonds.
The Lovecraft Country nominee's custom silk gauze Dior Couture gown was the result of two months, four fittings and two corsets, her stylist Alexandra Mandelkorn said. "Jurnee gasped when she tried this on—we all did!"
The This Is Us star's bright red gown made its way onto the actress after appearing on Carolina Herrera's runway in New York City on Sept. 9. After some major shipping issues, her stylist Kevin Michael Ericson explained, the garment finally arrived in Los Angeles a day before the award show.
The WandaVision nominee's belted Lanvin jumpsuit was the first look stylists Jill and Jordan requested after the actress' nomination. The duo paired the one-piece with Tamara Mellon heels and completed the look with a $1 million emerald and diamond Briony Raymond necklace.
The Crown nominee sported a custom Miu Miu look on the red carpet. As stylist Harry Lambert explained of the unique look, "The most memorable are those that take a risk and have fun! We wanted to take the hyper femme color of yellow and make it strong and powerful. We like to have a little humor in the styling."
When it came to the star's custom slip dress by ETRO—complete with a lace-up corset and De Beers jewelry—less was more. "I rarely decide on jewelry until they are fully dressed," stylist Law Roach said. "Then we play around to see what feels right before she walks out the door."
The Genius: Aretha nominee channeled her "inner rockstar" in a custom, multi-colored Louis Vuitton creation, stylist Jason Bolden said. "Imagine a performance of Diana Ross meets Prince!" As for the actress' dazzling necklace, it was actually two Roberto Coin leather bracelets Bolden joined together to create the accessory.
The Ted Lasso star, who plays character Keeley Jones, was dressed as the "couture version of Keeley" in an icy blue Atelier Versace gown, her stylist Erin Walsh said. "It was her dream to wear Versace!"
"This look was originally designed to tie back to her natural silver hair," stylist Tara Swennen said of the actress' custom Azzi & Osta gown, which was paired with Buccellati jewels. "But she decided to switch back to brunette at the last minute!"
