The 70th Emmy Awards took place last night (Sep. 17) and black women showed out per usual. While we are still working on winning the awards we rightfully deserve, we can always count on these women to slay the red carpet. 

Some of our favorite black queens, Regina King, Thandie Newton, and Sydelle Noel, took home Emmys and were obviously killing their designer lewks. Whether it was Jenifer Lewis making a statement in her all Nike 'fit or Tiffany Haddish shouting out Eritrea in her custom Prabal Gurung dress, all these ladies killed the red carpet.
