Sarah Paulson Is Radiant in Red Voluminous Gown at 2021 Emmys

The actress, a presenter on Sunday, wore red for TV's biggest night.

Sarah Paulson knows how to deliver a fashion moment, and she did just that at the 73rd Primetime Emmy Awards Sunday night. Paulson walked the red carpet at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles in a dramatic red gown. The return to the red carpet for TV's biggest night was a welcomed one after last year's virtual ceremony.

Paulson wowed in a statement-making dress, featuring a plunging neckline, oversized puffed sleeves and a full skirt. She styled the dress with circular earrings by Mateo, which were made from ethically and sustainably sourced natural diamonds from Botswana. 

While Paulson is not nominated for an Emmy this year, she is serving as one of the night's presenters along with Kaley Cuoco, Jada Pinkett Smith, Ellen Pompeo, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas and many, many more.
