The actress posted her look on Instagram before walking the carpet. “I’m on my way,” she captioned the post.

This marks Zendaya’s first in-person Emmys since 2019. The actress is nominated for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series for her performance as Rue in Euphoria season 2. She won this same award, her first acting Emmy, in 2020 and accepted the award from home due to the COVID-19 pandemic. She became the youngest woman to win a Primetime Emmy at just 24.

“I know this feels like a really weird time to be celebrating, but I just want to say that there is hope in the young people out there,” she said during her virtual acceptance speech in 2020. “I know that our TV show doesn’t always feel like a great example of that but there is hope in the young people.”
