We might still be recovering from the jaw-dropping Met Gala red carpet, but it's time to take a deep breath, re-apply that lippy and prepare for the next star-studded fashion showdown: the 73rd Primetime Emmy Awards.

This year's event will celebrate TV's best and brightest at the Event Deck in Los Angeles, with a simultaneous soiree hosted by Netflix taking place across the pond at the Strand in London.

Without further ado, here are the A-list Emmy attendees in all their glamorous glory.

Emma Corrin

The Crown star Emma Corrin (who uses the pronouns she/they) ditched their Princess Diana tiara for a bonnet to complete their fashion-forward Miu Miu look.

Fans took to social media to share their thoughts on the Brit actor's head-turning ensemble, with one declaring it, "Handmaids girl gone bad!"

One Twitter user was very much on board, writing, "I love it..high drama," while another felt the complete opposite: "Emma Corrin's outfit will haunt me forever."
