Stars showed up and showed out to celebrate their peers at the 74th Emmy Awards. While everyone looked fabulous, Emmy winner Sheryl Lee Ralph was the star of the show in more ways than one.

One of the most memorable moments of the awards ceremony was when the ever-so-talented actress won her first-ever Emmy award for supporting actress in a comedy series for her role in Abbott Elementary. This honor was a long time coming for Ralph, who plays a school teacher by the name of Barbara Howard on the TV series brought to life by comedian Quinta Brunson.

At a loss for words when she heard her name announced as the winner of the category, Ralph graciously made her way to the stage to accept the award. And there is no denying that the Jamaican American actress looked radiant as ever in a custom black gown with beautiful bedazzled hair.

With Black celebrities making it a point to bring new talent from their community to the forefront, it’s no surprise that Ralph’s custom gown and crystal trunk purse were both created by fellow Jamaican Brandon Blackwood. Blackwood took to Instagram to express his gratitude to Ralph for allowing him to make his first gown for this special night.
