The O-T Fagbenle is doing a modern update to a traditional outfit on the red carpet.
The 40-year-old actor stuns the red carpet at the 2021 Emmy Awards on The Event Deck at LA Live in Los Angeles on Sunday (September 19).\
“This is an agbada, which is a Nigerian style of dress. This is like a modern agbada, the traditional ones are a lot bigger, and have more ruffles, a different hat,” he explained to the LA Times on the carpet.
O-T is nominated in the Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series category for his work in The Handmaid’s Tale.
This year’s Emmys ceremony is being hosted by Cedric the Entertainer and the show will air on CBS and the Paramount+ streaming service. The Creative Arts Emmys were handed out last weekend and the full winners list for those awards has already been announced!
