Julia Louis-Dreyfus Goes Floral For HBO’s Emmys After Party
JULIA LOUIS-DREYFUS IN CAROLINA HERRERA FOR EMMYS AFTER PARTY
Louis-Dreyfus won her sixth consecutive Emmy for playing Selina Meyer on HBO’s Veep. Her little black dress was by Carolina Herrera, her shoes were Ferragamo, and her jewelry by James Robinson. The dress was strapless, went down to the floor, and featured a beautiful swath of yellow sequined flowers across the bosom. Browse Carolina Herrera items here.
Louis-Dreyfus’ win puts her in the Emmy record books as the person with the most Emmys won by a single performer for one role. She had been tied with Candice Bergen, who played Murphy Brown, with five since last year’s win. She also tied Cloris Leachman for the most Emmys won by a single performer, with 8. “This is and continues to be the role of a lifetime and an adventure of utter utter joy,” Louis-Dreyfus said in her acceptance speech.
“I don’t know what to say about it other than I’m numb,” she added backstage about her tie with Leachman. “I can’t believe it. I adore Cloris Leachman. All I think about is her in Young Frankenstein going, ‘He was my boyfriend.’ I’m just incredibly honored and amazed this has happened to me. It’s all very baffling and a s–t ton of good luck.” And when asked about whether or not all the female wins at the Emmys this year is signaling a change for years to come, she said, “God I hope so. Let’s hope that this is the beginning of something even better in our country and in the world because I think the world would be a better place if women were in charge.”
HBO announced earlier in the month that season 7 of Veep is set to air in 2018, and will be the show’s last. The actress joked that they wanted to do an impeachment storyline, “but we abandoned that because we were worried someone else might get to it first.”
