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.”
