As far as fashion trends go at the 2022 Emmys, it's safe to say that skin was in. Keyhole cutouts of every variety appeared on the red carpet, adding a subtly sexy twist to even the longest, sparkliest gowns.

There were halter-top options, including the looks worn by Ariana DeBose and Amy Poehler. Issa Rae stepped out in a cool, colorblocked interpretation by Sergio Hudson. There were also keyhole cutouts in unexpected places, like around the bellybutton, which we saw with Julia Garner's Gucci gown, while Jasmin Savoy Brown's Christopher Kane had additional cutouts on each side.
