Anna Chlumsky returned to the red carpet with a “risky” bang.

Less than two months after giving birth to daughter Clara Elizabeth, the 35-year-old Veep star arrived at the 2016 Emmy Awards in a daring lilac gown by Christian Siriano. The textured mini-dress with an off-the-shoulder neckline hit above her knees while its long cape skimmed the floor.

Chlumsky completed the awards show look with an up-swept ‘do, dangling earrings and pointed silver heels.

Designer Christian Siriano said they worked together to come up with her post-pregnancy sartorial debut.

“This was a collaboration,” he told PeopleStyle of the gown, one of nine looks he designed for the Emmys. “She really wanted something very vintage. She has a lot of vintage references, like old-school ’40s, ’50s dresses. And she wanted this very weird shape because she just had a baby. So she really, I think, didn’t want to show too much of her body, but still wanted to look cool.”

Anna Chlumsky might play the Vice President’s super busy Chief of Staff Amy Brookheimer on Veep, but in real life, she has something else big on her mind: pregnancy cravings.

“[During] my first pregnancy, it was all butter and pastries and sugar,” Chlumsky, who is six months along in her second pregnancy, shared during an interview for Thursday’s episode of Last Call with Carson Daly.

“It’s funny because [2½-year-old daughter Penelope Joan] will lick the icing off of something. So I’m like, ‘Does that correlate with the cravings?’ ”

Anna Chlumsky is the epitome of a glowing mom-to-be.

The Veep star made an appearance at the 31st Annual Lucille Lortel Awards in New York City on May 2, donned a brightly colored dress that showcased her baby bump perfectly. Chlumsky completed the look with pointed-toe heels, red nails, natural makeup, and a relaxed, wavy hairstyle.

Chlumsky, 35, announced in April that she is expecting her second child this year with entrepreneur husband Shaun So. The twosome, who tied the knot in 2008, already have one daughter: Penelope Joan, 2½.

“I spend every morning thinking about this person in my family,” the Emmy-nominated actress told PEOPLE of motherhood back in September. “Does it feel like what I saw on TV growing up? Not really, but that’s what’s cool about it.”

There’s a little VP on the way for Anna Chlumsky.

The Veep star and husband Shaun So are expecting their second child later this year, her rep confirms to PEOPLE exclusively.

So and Chlumsky, who wed in 2008, are already parents to 2½-year-old daughter Penelope Joan.

This whole thing has taught me that motherhood has a wealth of definitions and identities,” the actress, 35, previously said. “There’s no one way to be a mom or one way to be a ‘good’ mom.”

Anna Chlumsky Talks Motherhood: ‘There’s No One Way to Be a Mom’

Though she first became famous for her role in the 1991 film My Girl, Veep star Anna Chlumsky has a different girl on her mind these days: 2-year-old daughter Penelope Joan.

“It’s awesome. I love it,” Chlumsky, 34, told PEOPLE about being a parent with husband Shaun So. “She’s becoming her own person and it’s delicious to watch.”

At the National Women’s History Museum brunch in Los Angeles on Saturday, Chlumsky raved about her daughter’s developing personality.

“She’s really fun and really sweet. And she’s very determined. I love all those things about her. If she wasn’t my daughter, I’d want to hang out with her still. She’s really good company,” joked the first-time mom.

How exciting is it for your mom to be nominated for an Emmy? For a 2-year-old, the answer is…’Meh.’

At least that was the case for Anna Chlumsky‘s little one, Penelope. The Veep star, who just learned she was nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series Thursday morning — We knew it! — says that despite her own excitement, her toddler was super chill about the whole thing.

When she got the news, “I was in the kitchen cleaning up my daughter from lunch, just getting ready to start the beans that I was putting in the slow cooker for tonight,” Chlumsky, 34, tells PEOPLE.

But then Hollywood came a-calling. “It was funny, I was on the phone taking calls about the news and I looked over and my daughter was doing this thing where she lays down on the floor, just relaxing,” says the actress with a laugh. “Goes to show, whatever’s happening in Mommy’s world doesn’t have to interrupt her leisure time.”
