Amidst the major “B-word” moment on the Red Carpet, everyone emerged in total BABE style. Chrissy Metz may have had a major hot-mic snafu, but in the end, no one can deny her sweetheart nature and love for fellow actresses in the biz. On the Red Carpet, Chrissy Metz opted for an empire waist bright red dress that was classic and chic! The custom Tanya Taylor dress with puffy embellished sleeves had a vintage look that suited her well. Marc Mena for Matrix worked with Metz to craft this look. Of the style, he noted “Chrissy wanted a 70’s inspired look, but we also wanted to put a modern twist on it. The inspiration came from the big hair that was shown on the SS19 runways, but polished for a red carpet moment.”
