Elle Fanning walked the Emmys red carpet on Monday in a look that paid tribute to her colleagues on the set of “The Great.” The 24-year-old actress wore a custom bustier dress handmade by Kathryn Shaw, the show’s primary cutter and seamstress, and designed by the show’s costume designer Sharon Long. “I wanted to pay tribute to the creatives on our show because the world that’s been built on ‘The Great’ — of course, the writing but the way it looks — is so important and I’m so proud to be wearing this dress tonight,” she said during her Emmys red carpet interview. said
Channeling vintage glamor, Fanning styled the ensemble with a tousled bob that showcased the sweeping black gown, which featured powder pink accents with a dramatic train lining. “I’ve always been inspired by the old Hollywood glamor of the ’50s, and especially when costume designers designed gowns for actresses — like Edith Head always designed Grace Kelly’s Oscars,” she added. “It’s very special and you can see that these clothes are made with love.” Besides the thick fabric and dramatic train, another highlight of Fanning’s gown — which she wore while filming the third season of “The Great” — was her bustier, which overflowed with baby pink flowers for an 18th-century absurdity. On the accessory front, she opted for a silver necklace, a diamond ring and a crystal bow hair clip.
A few months ago, Fanning attended a screening of “Top Gun: Maverick” at the Cannes Film Festival in another timeless, elegant look: an Armani Prive ball gown made of blush-pink tulle and dozens of sparkling crystals. Ahead, see more of Fanning’s retro-inspired Emmys outfit from all angles
