For those who may not being paying the closest attention, the Emmy’s have not exactly been the multi-cultural celebration that it ought to be. Quite the contrary, in fact, the Emmy’s and many other large scale awards ceremonies have often been subject to backlash due to the lack of cultural diversity amongst not only nominees and winners, but attendees in general. Nevertheless, as with most areas of the world, they have been seemingly making strides in recent years to be more encompassing in regards to cultural diversity as a whole. While the jury is certainly still out on that, there’s no denying that our Black and Brown sisters were slaying all over that red carpet last night! Check out our top 4 picks below!
You might know her from TV, but there’s nothing scandalous about this fab ensemble! All the rage this year, if you missed how Kerry Washington and her baby bump straight the Emmy red carpet, you might want to Google it! Either way, this little diva came out rocking a Brandon Maxwell cutout dress, with that bump of hers showing in all the right places! However, although the dress was awesome, main attraction for NHH is that hair! HELLO?! Do you see that mane?! I don’t care if this grew out of her scalp or not, muva is serving some serious Naturalista realness!!
This gorgeous “Blackish” star was certainly serving up all types of #blackgirlmagic last night! Rocking a white chiffon dress by Clara Rotescu covered in gold and white spots, Yara has officially shown the world that she is the future of fashion. Moreover, check out that hair! Nothing to intricate, she simply swept up some of her tresses towards to back of her head for an effortlessly chic look!

Not to be outdone by her fab fictional daughter, the real life r&b diva heiress, Tracee Ellis Ross pushed through rocking all white. A lovely asymmetrical, silk, hand pleated gown with cutouts made by Ralph Lauren, Ross showed us how to look good…even when you lose.
(No shade. Congrats, Julia Dreyfus!) Although the notoriously curly diva opted to pull her curls back into a chic bun for the show, she’s still as natural as ever and looked spectacular!
Last, but definitely not least, the muva of all muvas, Jennifer Lewis also pushed through rocking her natural fro. Although the focus was placed on the fact that some reporter confused her for Wanda Sykes, Lawrence rocked an awesome sequin blazer with leather pants, and equally fab heels. Most importantly, of courses, peep the fro! Proud queen muva, Jennifer Lewis looks like she could be the poster woman for the #Supportthepuff movement! #Yasssss
