We can’t decide what was better at the Emmys: the acceptance speeches or the red carpet looks.

Let’s just say they were both really good.

Alex Borstein won the award for best supporting actress in a comedy series, and Michelle Williams won for lead actress in a limited series/movie. Both gave riveting speeches grounded in female empowerment, making us feel inspired no matter what we wear.

Billy Porter is no stranger to how fashion can change lives and be a tool for empowerment in itself. The “Pose” actor has made headlines for blurring the line between men’s and women’s fashion, and he looks damn good doing it.

If all guys could wear a dress as well as he does, maybe no one would be bothered by it.

The “Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series” winner looked absolutely stunning in a black Michael Kors suit with sparkling silver stripes. He completed his winning look with a funky Stephen Jones cowboy hat and matching black platform heels.

Keep doing you, Billy.

We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again – Zendaya can do no wrong.

Our latest MJ of the “Spider-Man” franchise stunned in an emerald green Vera Wang corset gown.

She completed the ensemble with matching green pumps, silver diamond jewelry, and perfectly wavy newly red hair.

It’s not hard to see why Peter Parker has such a big crush.

“Fleabag” star Phoebe Waller-Bridge stole the show in more ways than one.

The actress wore a blush gown with rose gold sequins, making the top of our list for best dressed. The tulle gown had a cinched waist and deep V-neck, which was beyond flattering on Waller-Bridge.

She also won three Emmy Awards, so that may have contributed to her undeniable glow.

For every star on the best-dressed list, there’s another name added to the worst-dressed list.

Lena Headey, nominated for her role in “Game of Thrones,” missed her seat on the iron throne and also missed the mark in her mint blue Brock Collection gown. The dress was the exact opposite of what Cersei would have worn, and it was also not cute.

The floral pattern looked like stains on the blue fabric, and the black bow around her waist disrupted the flow of the tiered silhouette.

Kendall Jenner was in attendance and also presented at the awards show. The model wore a floral gown that reminded us of a Sheri Hill prom dress with a latex bodysuit underneath, making it look like she had to run to a costume party after the show.

Don’t ask us why Jenny McCarthy was there, but all we know is her blue Alexander McQueen dress made her look like Queen Elsa gone rogue. She – for some reason – decided to wear a pair of heeled combat boots with her gown.

The unfinished hem gave the dress an edgy vibe, but her choice to accessorize with a leather belt and chain-link necklace made her resemble a fairy godmother who owns a motorcycle.

We kindly remind Jenny that Cinderella lost a glass slipper, not a leather boot.

The moral of this story is some celebs either need to give their stylists a raise or fire them.
