The 70th annual Emmy Awards brought out the biggest names in TV on Monday, Sept. 17, 2018, to celebrate and honor their work.

This year’s red carpet set the fashion bar high, and Black women slayed in jaw-dropping looks. The variety of their ensembles and evening wear demonstrated that our sisters aren’t afraid of bright colors, big frills and embellishments, massive volume, lively designs and making major statements.

Our favorite, “Seven Seconds” actress Regina King, stole the show with her chartreuse strapless gown.

Here are some of the other best looks and Black girl magic moments from the 70th Annual Emmy Awards.
