Winners of the 74th Emmys — crowned with television's highest award at the September 12 telecast — stepped from the stage of L.A.'s Microsoft Theater, their statuettes reflecting their flush of excitement. Minutes later, many were stepping into the cool, jewel-toned studio of photographer Robert Ascroft. Hidden from the backstage hubbub, Robert's salon — with walls of fuchsia and blue, and comfy contemporary seating in lemon, pink and sage — offered stars a place to relax and revel in their now-and-forever distinction: Emmy winner.
Among the first-time victors to grace Robert's space: Lizzo, buoyant from her win. In a billowing red tulle gown — her Golden Girl tight within her grasp — the singer-songwriter-actress-host-producer gleamed like a crimson gem in the Emmy jewel box. In the above selection of Robert's Emmy-night portraits, bask in her glow and those of many other winners, nominees and guests.
