The 2015 Emmy Awards brought out Hollywood’s top A-listers decked in their finest attire, but as any stylish girl knows, no look is complete without the right makeup and an artfully coiffed ‘do. So what happens when the temperature hits heat-wave status as it did today in LA? Despite the searing 100 degree heat, celebs managed to look polished and fantastic.
The Emmy Awards’ leading ladies did not disappoint on the beauty front.
Here’s They Are!
No one will know you’re sweating if you show up with your hair already glistening. Try the wet look like Jaimie the next time the temperature rises.
While the actress already has shoulder-grazing locks, she opted for a pinned-up ‘do to keep things as fresh as possible.
You don’t have to cut long hair to keep cool in the summer. Pull hair into a loose bun and throw on a multi-strand headband á la Julianne for a classic look.
She beat the heat with a slicked-back bun—her severe middle part pulling focus to a poppy pout.
She opted for an equally polished sideswept style, her hair tucked behind her ears to reveal a pair of sunburst-inspired baubles.
She let her peroxide blonde down, her deep side part and soft curls playing to the old Hollywood glamour of her strong brows, bronzed cheekbones, and delicate silver necklace.
Thick, glossy blonde hair, stained lips, a generous amount of highlighter—the components of January Jones‘s classic, natural look may seem basic, but the end result is absolutely radiant.
If there were ever a perfect way to wear a platinum bob, this would be it. Lady Gaga totally nailed the old Hollywood vibe, but skipped the red lipstick to keep it modern.
She has changed up her look big time, and with her new light brown air and cool tousled waves, we think she’s looking better than ever.
“Game of Thrones” star Gwendoline Christie boasted retro realness on the red carpet, with platinum pin curls, a flushed complexion, and loads of mascara for major lashes.
We can’t confirm whether Laura Prepon is keeping her black hair for the sake of her “Orange Is the New Black” role or whether she’s adopted it for her personal look off-screen, but we do know one thing: it looks amazing on her, especially with the well-groomed brows and dark smokey eye she wore tonight.
With bold red lipstick, a simple updo, and the naturally full brows of our dreams, Amanda Peet‘s hair and makeup was on point—and perfectly complemented her bright blue eyes and fair skin.
sure knows how to rock a sexy textured lob, and with her shiny nude lip and classic smokey eye, the whole look really comes together.
As far as notable updos of the evening go, Anna Chlumsky‘s messy French braided crown was one of the biggest standouts. It’s perfect paired with her otherwise low-key look of dark eyeshadow and neutral lipstick.
Jaws drop every time Christina Hendricks sets foot on the red carpet, but this look is especially good, with the kind of lush auburn curls formerly only seen on American Girl dolls. Gorgeous.
Taraji P. Henson
Taraji P. Henson looked as much like a boss on the red carpet as she does on TV—which is to say, very much. In case you wanted further evidence that both metallic eyes and lips are making a comeback this fall, Taraji’s purple shadow and nude lipstick should be all the proof you need.
