By Jackie Willis
Chrissy Metz is in the early stages of finding her perfect gown for this year's Emmy Awards.
The This Is Us star looked stunning in a Rachel Roy short black and red velvet dress at Wednesday's Hollywood Foreign Press Association's Grants Banquet in Beverly Hills, California, and admitted to ET's Carly Steel that she's yet to decide on an Emmy style. "You know, we're talking about colors and shapes and styles," Metz -- who is nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series -- said. "But I'm not married to an idea."
As for whether she'll be dressed by Christian Siriano again, she shared that he "hasn't come forth," but quickly added that the designer is "fantastic."
Meanwhile, fans are anticipating season two of This Is Usand what all is in store for Metz's character, Kate Pearson. The 36-year-old actress dished that Kate's singing aspirations and her relationship with Toby Damon (Chris Sullivan) will be a big part of the upcoming episodes. "We saw that she was interested in singing from the finale. God bless Toby because he's the one holding it down with the job," she explained. "[Kate is] like, 'Oh, I want to sing in L.A. as a mid-30s unconventional girl, here I go!'"
Metz continued, "As L.A. would have it, it can eat you up if you let it and it's not always what you expect. There will be some bumps in the road like This Is Us should, of course, throw you, in life. It goes to show if you really want something, how hard you are prepared to work for it."
As for what it's like being back on set of This Is Us, Metz gushed, "I missed everybody desperately and I'm so happy to be back."
The TV star added that the positive response to the show is big perk of starring in the NBC series. "I love that there's wholesome television with real, real issues that people are privy to now," Metz noted. "That's what art is about."
The second season of This Is Us premieres on Tuesday, September 26.
