At the Emmy Awards on Monday night, The White Lotus’ Simona Tabasco brought a bit of the show’s fresh and summery Italian aesthetic to the red carpet. She arrived in a custom hourglass dress from Marni, adorned with a collage of hand-sewn florals. Rosettes might have been the trend at the award shows this past weekend, including on Tabasco’s co-star Meghann Fahy, but this take, with visible stitching and raw white edges around each flower, stands out with its bold and playful feel. Tabasco completed the ensemble with matching pink pointed-toe Mary Janes and Cartier jewelry. Stylist Ramona Tabita was behind the look.
Her makeup, by Samantha Lau, consisted of dewy skin and a strawberry-pink lip. Meanwhile, her shoulder-length hair was styled in soft waves, thanks to hairstylist Peter Lux. Tabasco, who was nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series, looked to the “cinema divas” of the 1950s and ’60s for inspiration on Emmys night. It’s no wonder she exuded some Old Hollywood glam.
Seeing Tabasco and the White Lotus cast together again (especially Jennifer Coolidge) was a nice respite from the current winter blues. Here, Tabasco shows us how she got ready for the delayed-but-no-less-fun 2023 Emmy Awards.
