You may have missed it thanks to Covid-19 and the lack of red carpet photos, but the 2020 Emmys took place last night and while some celebrities watched at home in their pyjamas for the virtual event, others like Normal People's Paul Mescal and Insecure's Yvonne Orji, got suitably dressed up for the occasion.
While Paul posed a for a picture on the stairs of his home in his Louise Vuitton suit, Yvonne went one step further, filling her home with gold balloons, champagne and red roses.
The only thing that could outshine her home setup was Yvonne herself, who looked flawless in a red sequinned, thigh-high split gown.
She paired the look with a matching deep red lip and some seriously voluminous lashes, but as much as we were floored by that dress and that makeup, it was her hair that really stood out the most.
Showing her support for Black lives, Yvonne shaved the raised fist salute symbol into the side of her head and we just wish she had a red carpet to walk down, to properly show it off.
Thankfully, photographer Wendell Weithers captured Yvonne's incredible hairstyle and to say the Internet went wild for it, is an understatement.
"Finest fine gehl of life. This haircut is EVERYTHING," wrote author Luvvie Ajayi Jones. "When you go to the Emmys looking like an award!!!! Yasssss," wrote another.
While Yvonne was nominated for best supporting actress in a comedy series, she didn't win this time, but it's safe to say she won the night anyway.
