MANILA, Philippines – With Nicole Kidman turning up the saturation in her deep red Calvin Klein gown and pink strappy shoes, and Tracee Ellis Ross looking she was dipped in moonlight and rolled in clouds and stardust in Chanel, this year's Emmys red carpet saw its fair share of dramatic looks – and we aren't just talking about the gowns.
From bold hair choices to statement eyes and lips, here are some of the beauty looks we loved at the Emmys this year:
Jane Fonda turned the clock back with bangs, a high ponytail, and pink lips. Definitely, 79 years old has never looked this good.
Honestly, I want to be her so badly, she just looks like she's having the most fun at ALL times. Gorgeous Emmy Nominee #janefonda wears #brandonmaxwell SS18 to tonight's Emmy Awards, styled by @iconhouse_la A post shared by Brandon Maxwell (@brandonmaxwell) on Sep 17, 2017 at 5:13pm PDT
Zoe Kravitz's feathery pixie cut, dark brows, and subtle cat eye echoed the textures of her Dior gown. Add to that rosy nude lips, bronze cheeks, and her tattoos, and you get a look only Zoe can pull off.

Tracee Ellis Ross' cornrows, nude lips, and heavy lashes were the perfect way to top her silver Chanel haute couture dress.

Millie Bobby Brown's slicked back pixie cut added some edge to what would have otherwise been a typical princess-at-the-ball look.
So happy. So excited. So proud. Thank you @televisionacad for the nominations. No matter what any result is we ( stranger kids) always have a smile on our face and some dance moves in our pocket ready for the parties.
