Sheryl Lee Ralph had a fashion emergency ahead of the 2022 Emmys


This clothing emergency could have sent someone straight to the principal.

“Abbot Elementary” star Sheryl Lee Ralph stunned on the 2022 Emmy Awards red carpet on Monday in an elegant strapless black velvet dress with orange lining — but she almost suffered a serious fashion faux pas.

Ralph revealed that she was almost stuck unwittingly pairing up on the red carpet. “A designer gave my co-star and me the same sketch for the same dress,” the sitcom star told The Associated Press.

She only found out about the situation on set when said co-star Lisa Ann Walter showed Ralph her own outfit plans – a green off-the-shoulder dress with puffy sleeves and a gold belt buckle that she finished by wear until September. , 12 award ceremony.

“Until five days ago, I had no dress, I had nothing,” Ralph said. “Brandon Blackwood heard about my plight from Roberto, the stylist, in New York.”

Ralph, 65, said Blackwood “stepped up” and “was in Japan and started returning the dress on his Pacific flight.”

The designer – who creates handbags and small accessories and only recently got into footwear with a custom pair of shoes – made her “first dress” for the occasion, according to Instagram.

Fans called the jumpsuit “legendary” and loved “it’s gorgeous as always.”

Ralph, who plays longtime teacher Mrs. Barbara Howard on the ABC show and wowed when she accepted her award with a song, accessorized her look with a Brandon Blackwood mini bag, of course, and a diamond choker and long braid bedazzled with crystals.
