Class was officially in session on the red carpet of the 2022 Emmy Awards.
The stars of TBEN’s “Abbott Elementary” made their mark (straight A’s across the board, of course) at Monday night’s 74th Annual Ceremony in Los Angeles.
The first was series star creator and writer Quinta Brunson, who made history as the first black woman to be nominated in three Emmy comedy categories in one year.
The comedian stunned in a shimmering custom Dolce & Gabbana gown with a heavily beaded and detailed copper corset and high slit.
In conversation with E! Red carpet correspondent Laverne Cox explained that she wanted “something that made me feel va-va-voom, but also respectful,” given her many responsibilities.

Brunson set the tone for the rest of the cast, including legendary performer Sheryl Lee Ralph, who received her first-ever Emmy nomination in her nearly five-decade career for her work on the sitcom.
Ralph stars on the show as Barbara Howard, a buttoned-up kindergarten teacher who acts as a mentor to Brunson’s character, but she was completely absorbed in the awards ceremony.
The “Dreamgirls” star stunned in a strapless black velvet Brandon Blackwood gown with orange accents.
But all eyes were on her bedazzled braided ponytail, which literally made her sparkle on the red carpet.
