Jenna Ortega trades ‘Wednesday’ goth for floral couture on Emmys 2024 red carpet

She’s stepping away from the dark side.

“Wednesday” star Jenna Ortega, 21, arrived on the Emmys 2024 red carpet wearing an embellished Dior Haute Couture dress that’s a far cry from her character’s preferred dark garbs.

The actress told red carpet correspondent Laverne Cox that the gown — which is comprised of delicate green and purple floral embellishments on top of sheer fabric — is so heavy and structured that it stands on its own.

Working with her stylist Enrique Melendez, she finished off the outfit with an eye-catching diamond necklace, bracelet and ring, and nude-colored shoes.

As for her glam, this time, the star went simple. She wore her short brown hair down with loose waves in a simple middle part.

She kept her makeup natural and fresh, with her freckles on full display.

The 21-year-old recently revealed one of her favorite on-set beauty secrets: a $29 cream from Elizabeth Arden.

“It’s an incredible product,” she told Harper’s Bazaar UK back in November. “I have it with me everywhere … it’s a skin protectant.
