Jennifer Aniston’s Sєxy Black Gown and Major Tan at the 2020 Emmys Prove Some Things Never Change

It feels like a decade ago that Jennifer Aniston hit the red carpet in that famously revealing white, silk, bias-cut vintage gown by John Galliano for Dior.

In reality, it’s only been nine months since the 51-year-old actress dazzled us with her fashion choice, had an Internet-breaking run-in with ex Brad Pitt and won the SAG Award for outstanding performance by a female actor in a drama series for her role in the Apple TV+ hit, The Morning Show.

Fast Forward to Sunday’s 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards, and things look very different.

The coronavirus pandemic has halted red carpet events, resulting in the first-ever virtual Emmys that features nominees, like Aniston (who snagged another nod for her role as Alex Levy on The Morning Show), filmed from the comfort of their own homes. But that didn’t stop many — including Aniston — from giving fans stop-and-stare style moments.

In fact, Aniston turned the Emmys stage into her own personal red carpet.

The lead actress in a drama series nominee wore a Sєxy, black silk slip-like gown, diamond necklace, strappy black sandals and textured beach waves as she helped Jimmy Kimmel open the show and present the first award of the evening.

Aniston shared some getting ready pH๏τos before her Emmys cameo, one with her hairstylist and good friend Chris McMillan, who created textured beach waves to go with her California tan. Her styling team was also working up to the very last minute on dress alterations

Earlier in the day Aniston even shared a behind-the-scenes pH๏τo of herself relaxing with a face mask and champagne.

In July, the award show’s executive producers and sent out a letter informing nominees that this year’s dress code is not its standard black tie affair.

“Our informal theme for the night is ‘come as you are, but make an effort,’” the statement read. “If you want to be in formal wear, we’d love that, but equally if you’re in the UK and it’s 3am, perhaps you want to be in designer pajamas and record from your bed! We want to work with you to style your moments, but want you to guide us on your levels of comfort – where you want to be, who you want to be with, what you want to wear etc.”

When it comes to crafting her event looks, Aniston collaborates with styling duo Nina and Clare Hallworth — and always turns to trusted hairstylist and best friend Chris McMillan for a chic mane moment.

The Morning Show, which Aniston co-stars and co-produces alongside Reese Witherspoon, follows a news network caught up in the #MeToo movement.

Earlier this year, Aniston told PEOPLE she’s been “thrilled” by all the appreciation for the show.
