How the Gucci Loafer Became a Modern Icon

As its 70 years of illustrious history prove, the style makes a lasting impression.

This year, the 72nd Emmy Awards—like many things—looks a bit different. While celebrities, casts and crews, and television fanatics are buzzing about the star-studded lineup of nominees, the Los Angeles Staples Center is, well, empty. Save for Jimmy Kimmel of course, who will be hosting what has been dubbed the "Wi-Fi Emmys."

According to the New York Times, in order to make things as authentic and seamless as possible, the Academy sent all nominees special viewing kits, which included a ring light, a microphone, a laptop, and a camera. After setting it all up, nominees are encouraged to stream themselves for the Internet, so that everyone can see their reactions, speeches, and outfits.
