Middle East designers made the Emmys red carpet their own

Our pick for the winner on the day? Gabrielle Union in Zuhair Murad.

The 69th Emmys took place in Los Angeles overnight, bringing together two of our favourite things (fashion and TV).

While there have been red carpets with more Middle Eastern designers represented, our faves from the region still did alright. We’ve rounded up the best looks from local houses and those further afield. What better way to ease your way through Monday?

Cox looks like she’s going into battle, in a very red-carpet-ready way. We’re obsessed.

Stunning looks all round, we say. And now for the best of the rest…
