It’s ‘Team Indya’ for television’s biggest night as celebrities begin taking to the purple carpet for the 71st Annual Emmy Awards.
The Pose actor and model who counts themself as a “close friend” of Louis Vuitton, wore a custom white from the brand, that includes sky-high leg slits paired with stunning heels and a clutch. Earlier this month, Moore made a moving statement at the Daily Front Row’s annual Fashion Media Awards. That look sent a powerful message about trans rights via custom-designed earrings that featured the then 17 Black trans women who had been murdered in the United States this year — including Muhlaysia Booker, Ashanti Carmon, and Jazzaline Ware.
In an interview on the red carpet Moore spoke about working with Vuitton, saying they were thankful “there are not many transgender people in the fashion space being recognized as designer muses.” They also said of the dress: “it’s more tricky to exist than to walk in this dress.
The model stopped to talk with the Los Angeles Times about their love for the mystery drama web series The OA and the British science-fiction Netflix series Black Mirror, during their time on the carpet. The OA was cancelled four and a half months after its season 2 release last March.
Moore stars as Angel on FX’s Pose, which boasts television’s largest cast of trans actors in series regular roles and the largest LGBTQ+ cast for such scripted shows. The series is a contender for six awards tonight, including Outstanding Drama Series, in addition to Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series for Billy Porter.
