Hair took centre stage for Emmy nominees Amy Poehler (Parks & Recreation) and Taraji P. Henson (Empire). For starters, Poehler has traded in her platinum locks for sexy ombre auburn, a very flattering colour choice for her complexion. Henson’s sleek modern lob with centre part creates the perfect frame for her strong brows and smoky eyes. It’s a look that says strong, confident and uber feminine – Cookie would be proud.


Eyeglasses have become a beauty accessory on the red carpet and onstage. Jessica Lange arrived at the Emmy’s wearing tawny-framed sunglasses to match her blonde waves, the result was a dash of the mystery a movie star always covets. On the practical side, funny girl Tina Fey chose dark framed peepers to present onstage.

Stars Allison Janney and Viola Davis show off the night’s best accessory – the gold Emmy statue! On the beauty front, Janney paired her Emmy with a classic smoky eye and nude lip, while Davis went the old Hollywood glamour route with a slash of cat-eye liner and bold red lipstick.
