Niecy Nash was a vision in a white dress on the red carpet at the 2016 Emmy Awards held at the Microsoft Theater last night in Los Angeles. The actress and comedian was nominated in the category of Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for her role as Didi Ortley on HBO’s Getting On. Niecy showed up on the red carpet with her husband; Jay Tucker, wearing a stunning white dress by one of our favourite designers; Christian Siriano, paired up with Charlotte Olympia shoes, a Judith Leiber bag, Hearts on Fire bracelets, a Le Vian bracelet, and additional Lorraine Schwartz jewelry.
The 49-year-old teamed up with Christian Siriano to create the gorgeous white mermaid dress, which she envisioned wearing to an awards show quite some time ago.
“Many years ago before I was a working actor, I chicken scratched a picture of a dress on my kid’s notebook paper and I said, I’m gonna win an award in this dress,” she told Rose Curiel and a group of small reporters at Friday’s Variety and Women in Film’s Emmy Nominee celebration. “This year, I found a designer to interpret my chicken scratch and I’m wearing that dress. It’s custom. I’m wearing me by somebody else.”
Christian Siriano took to twitter in talk about the dress:
Although Niecy didn’t win, she kept a positive spirit and here’s what she said about her nomination; “It’s special the second time around because I thought the first time was a fluke,” she said. “I was like, are they gonna find out I slipped into this category… but the second time, I thought, oh shoot, it was intentional? Thank you!”
