Ayo Edebiri won at the Emmys in custom Louis Vuitton: incredible

Ayo Edebiri has been cleaning up this awards season and I’m here for it. She won the first award last night, for supporting actress in a comedy for The Bear of course. The Bear also won for supporting and lead actor, for directing and for best comedy series! Ayo was in this incredible Louis Vuitton leather strapless gown which was custom made for her. She told Laverne Cox that she felt snatched and she definitely was. In Ayo’s acceptance speech she joked that it probably wasn’t her parents dream to emigrate to this country and have your child do improv. Ayo’s parents are from Barbados and Nigeria. I thought she might be from Ireland, but that’s a joke she started. I needed to read this explainer to get it!

I love her styling, her jewelry and her shoes!

Presenter Sheryl Lee Ralph was also nominated in this category. Remember when she won last year and sang her acceptance speech? She’s said that it took her 40 years to be an overnight sensation. Sheryl was in this white Christian Siriano tuxedo mermaid gown that fit her perfectly. Also she was there with her husband, Vincent Hughes! I was hoping we’d see him.

Nominee Janelle James was in red Rodarte. I could have sworn that she’s won an Emmy, but she has two nominations and she won a SAG last year. She’s also up for a SAG this year. Abbott Elementary is back on February 7th! I’ll probably wait a couple of weeks to watch it though as the episodes go too fast so I save them up for when I’m sad.

I wanted to include Jessica Williams, she was also nominated in this category. I didn’t finish season one of Shrinking as I couldn’t get into it, but she’s a standout as a therapist in Jason Segel and Harrison Ford’s practice. She was in a black gown with a tiered white tulle cutout. This is a little fug but her styling elevates it.

    Siriano did right by Sheryl Lee Ralph and she is wearing the well out of that look. Her speech was *chefs kiss*.

    • Pinkosaurus says:

      ETA I guess the speech I saw in the highlights recap was from SLR’s speech in 2023? Still excellent as was Niecy Nash thanking herself. I don’t watch the awards shows – I just wait for the highlights and celebitches to tell me what’s worth watching.

  2. Ameerah M says:

    Ayo was one of the best dressed of the evening. Sheryl’s lee dress did what Aujeune’s dress from the Critic’s Choice Awards failed to. Also like Jessica William’s dress.

    • Josephine says:

      Ayo won the night imo. Would love to see it in a navy leather for a little something different but she looked amazing.

      • smcollins says:

        I’m with you guys, Ayo looked amazing! I LOVE her dress and she looks so beautiful in it. I’m so happy for her with all the awards & recognition she’s receiving for The Bear, so well-deserved. I look forward to seeing her in other projects.

    • LeahTheFrench says:

      I agree – strongest look of the night, first time in years I’m not wincing when I’m seeing Louis Vuitton! I’ve really enjoyed Ayo’s fashion through the awards season, she has her own style. It’s edgy but effortless, and the dress never looks like it’s wearing her. She looks fantastic here.

    • Lady Esther says:

      Oh absolutely she was the best dressed! I’m swooning…hair, accessories, shoes and THAT DRESS. She was stunning and modern and sexy and gorgeous and confident. She hit it out of the park! Well done!

    • Kate says:

      The pleating of Ayo’s dress was super cool and it fit her perfectly. So did Sheryl’s dress, the fits that were good tailoring-wise were really FLAWLESS.
      Janelle James looked beautiful but seems like they cut the fabric wrong where the torso hits the skirt. It’s weird because it fits her well but that seaming just doesn’t lay properly. She deserves better!

    • Silver Birch says:

      Ayo’s dress is spectacular, and the fit and draping are incredible. I just wish her jewelry had been a bit more bold to go with the dress…maybe no necklace, but some long, sparkly, gorgeous statement earrings to contrast with the leather…

  3. Jais says:

    Ayo looked great and she just has super cute energy. I’m ready for her to do a comedy in Ireland. Someone make it happen.

    • Concern Fae says:

      She grew up in Dorchester, was in the improv group at Boston Latin, no wonder she can pull off a perfect Irish accent.

  4. Bumblebee says:

    Ayo does look great. She seriously joked she was from Ireland and people believed her? That’s the best! My Irish ancestors are laughing in leprechaun.

    • Bettyrose says:

      Did you watch the clip of her Irish accent talking about her role as a donkey in the Banshees (which she wasn’t actually in)? That’s her improv training. 🤣

  5. Bad Janet says:

    I absolutely love her. She has such an enigmatic appeal on screen.

  6. Margot says:

    Ayo looks incredible. Watched Bottoms this weekend – hilarious!

  7. QuiteContrary says:

    There are folks joking on Twitter that Ayo needs to be the grand marshal of the St. Patrick’s parade in Dublin … which would be amazing.

    She looked gorgeous last night.

    Also, Sheryl Lee Ralph’s husband is a state senator in Pennsylvania. They both look great.

  8. Sass says:

    Omg that black leather dress! Classic silhouette and subtle edge! Here for it!

    She is gorgeous. What a beautiful smile.

  9. Grace says:

    A little late to the party about Ayo, because I just recently watched The Bear, but I LOVE EVERYTHING about her!!! She’s talented, quick on her feet, and just adorable! I can’t wait to see her in other things and watch her star rise even higher!

  10. Kirsten says:

    Ayo looks fantastic. That dress and the styling are so great.

    I know that The Bear has to be considered a comedy because episodes are only 30 minutes, but I wish they would just create a new category for short-form drama or something. Neither The Bear or Barry are comedies, even if at times they’re funny.
