Formality calls for bow ties, no? When you’re going to a gala or any other formal event, we sure hope what’s completing your collar is a bow tie instead of its taller sibling. So why were some of Hollywood’s most famous actors strutting the red carpet in neckties? Well, we’re not entirely sure, but here are our 5 favorite non-bow-tied Emmys looks from the past Sunday!

    Jason Bateman


    Even though Jason is sans bow tie, his exquisitely cut Dior Homme suit with peaked lapels is formal affair worthy. 

    Alec Baldwin


    Alec’s shiny suit takes it up a notch with the shawl lapel. 

    Kit Harington


    Yet another gent in peaked lapels! Love Kit’s 3-piece suit and eye-catching shoes!

    Zachary Quinto


    No peaks, and no bow tie, yet Mr. Quinto’s black and grey combo is a fav!

    Of course NPH will be on this list! The host of the evening, donning a dapper burgundy jacket with contrast lapels!
