Mj Rodriguez Sketched Her Own Emmys Dress, but Turns Out, It Was Already in Existence
For one of the most incredible moments in her career at the 2021 Emmys, Pose actress Mj Rodriguez, who also performs as Michaela Jaé, chose vintage Atelier Versace. The star marks the occasion, on which she's made history as the first transgender woman to to be recognized in a lead acting category, in an incredible one-shoulder turquoise design from the archives with rhinestone-covered ruching at the bodice and a thigh-high leg slit, perfect for showing off her matching satin sandals. Mj actually sketched her idea of the perfect look for the Versace team, and together, with her stylist Katie Bofshever, they settled on fitting something from a past runway — so you know we're applauding them for their sustainable fashion choice. Scroll ahead to see how Mj's gown was accessorized with Bulgari jewels and a Judith Leiber clutch, then see what everyone else wore for their arrivals on the red carpet.
