We were psyched when Chrissy Metz, of hit new series This Is Us, invited us into her Golden Globes prom dresses online fitting with designer Christian Siriano, who whipped up two gowns—one beaded and red and one teal and flowy—for her 2017 Golden Globes red carpet debut. But, surprise! She wore...neither of them.
Metz's actual dress of choice was a deep purple velvet gown by Nathan Paul, with jeweled belt.
"[Nathan Paul is] a new designer," she told Glamour. "I had a couple choices for prom dress, which, wow, I didn’t think I’d have—what an honor," she said. "And I just was like 'I want to feel comfortable, I love purple, why the hell not?' It spoke to me."
And, it seems, Metz—nominated for Best Supporting Actress in a drama series along with her This Is Us co-star Mandy Moore, had no jitters when it came to her Globes debut. Of her feelings before the big show, the 36-year-old told us: "I slept really really well. I was just like, 'It’s dinner with friends and we’re gonna hang out.'"
