Jimmy Kimmel honors Robin Williams by wearing rainbow suspenders to Emmys

Aug. 25, 2014 at 7:17 PM ET

Robin Williams made rainbow suspenders a fashion trend when he wore them on "Mork and Mindy" in the 1970s, and Monday night, talk-show host Jimmy Kimmel brought that style back in Williams' honor at the Emmy Awards.

Kimmel posted an Instagram photo of himself riding the L.A. subway to the event, and proudly displayed the Williams-esque suspenders under his traditional black tuxedo, hashtagging the photo #mork. Wife Molly McNearney, who delivered their daughter, Jane, just a month ago, accompanied Kimmel.

Williams committed suicide on Aug. 11. He will be honored at Monday night's Emmys with a special tribute led by friend and fellow comedian Billy Crystal.

"Jimmy Kimmel Live" is up for an Emmy for outstanding variety, music or comedy series.
