Sarah Paulson stole the show in an attention-grabbing Louis Vuitton ensemble designed by Karla Welch. Many people and fans of the actress criticized the navy blue two-piece structured set, prompting them to create hilarious memes on Twitter.

Other admirers linked Sarah Paulson to fictitious characters such as Woody from Toy Story and Precog from the American science fiction film Minority Report, which aired in 2002.
Fans have likened her to America’s Next Top Model cycle 11 winner Marjorie Conrad, British actress Claire Foy, Jamie Lee Curtis, and Tilda Swinton.

More about Sarah Paulson’s appearance at the 74th Primetime Emmy Awards
Paulson donned a special navy blue two-piece ensemble from Louis Vuitton to the occasion. The crop top was structured and square in design. The crop top has no sleeves and a cape design. Karla Welch styled the ensemble’s bottom, which had Paulson wearing a ruched skirt in a similar dark blue tone with a boxy collared top. The tiered pleated skirt had a peplum at the waist and flowed down towards the ground. The skirt was fastened with a studded black belt with silver rhinestones at the waist, which was also seen on the Louis Vuitton resort runway in 2023.
The actress accented her monochrome outfit with a silver necklace and a huge glittering ring on her right hand. Sarah’s short brunette hair was gelled down and split to the side to complement her dress. With a touch of black mascara, light pink blush, and an orange-red splash of color on her lips, her makeup was kept basic. She appeared alongside her lifelong companion, Holland Taylor, who is now 79 years old. The couple started dating in 2015. Paulson was nominated for an Emmy this year for Lead Actress in a Limited Series for her performance in the popular program Impeachment: American Crime Story, but she did not win.
