The 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards took place in Los Angeles on Sunday night, with Jimmy Kimmel presenting to an empty theatre and its usual celebrity audience attending virtually from the comfort of their homes.

Many chose to dress up for the occasion, including Regina King and Jennifer Aniston, but other stars went for a more casual approach.

Here we look at the stars who strictly adhered to the loungewear dress code:

1. Jameela Jamil

The Good Place actress Jameela Jamil wore a white pyjama set with a yellow and light blue sequin dressing gown, and posed from her very comfortable-looking plush, blue sofa.

"No bra? No heels? NO PROBLEM," she captioned the photo. "Wearing PJs to the 72nd Emmy Awards (from my house) is my kind of vibes. Excited to see if we win any of the seven awards we have been nominated for!!!!"

Referencing her Good Place character, she said: "I still did my make up and wore a sequin dressing gown, because ... It’s what Tahani would have wanted. And this is her day, not mine."

2. Gabrielle Union

Gabrielle Union introduced Insecure as a nominee during the ceremony, with husband Dwyane Wade. To do so, she wore a shower cap and dressing gown, and rapped into a make-up brush.

"The show's mad funny. Issa's trying to find herself, and Molly's got money," she rapped.

Posting the clip to her Instagram, she said: "Rap career launched. [You're] welcome ... It's no secret we are huge @insecurehbo fans so this was hella fun to do. Always winners in our house and in our hearts. Here's our bit in full."

3. Taika Waititi

Kiwi director Taika Waititi posed from his bed, ahead of the Emmy Awards. He joked that he was "Emmys ready... to go back to sleep," wearing pyjamas for the occasion. He also captioned the post "#hotelquarantine".

4. Rachel Brosnahan and Jason Ralph

The Marvelous Mrs Maisel star Rachel Brosnahan and her The Magicians star husband Jason Ralph wore matching navy and purple pyjama sets for the occasion, their two dogs also had matching bows.

"Pyjamas but make it fashion," Brosnahan joked, posing for the ceremony from her home in New York. The looks were made by Christy Rilling and will be auctioned by Chic Relief from Wednesday, September 23, to Friday, October 2, with 100 per cent of the proceeds going to When We All Vote.

5. Octavia Spencer

Self Made's Octavia Spencer lost out on the Actress in a limited series to Regina King for Watchmen, but that didn't stop her treating herself to a lavish spread, while wearing loungewear in the comfort of her own home.

"No red carpet but live from my white couch," she joked, tagging her hair stylist and make-up artist. She also tagged Tadashi Shoji, the designer of her relaxed loungewear-style dress.

6. Mark Duplass

The Morning Show actor Mark Duplass wore pyjamas, paired with a tuxedo jacket, a combination befitting the occasion.

"Tonight’s look brought to you by old tux jacket from Cyrus awards season and Target’s limited Clark Griswold Christmas Jammies collection," he captioned the picture.
