Julia Louis-Dreyfus may have kicked off her Emmys preparations by washing her hair in the kitchen sink, a fact (and photo) the Veep star posted on her Instagram account earlier today with the following description: “This is how it began yesterday at the kitchen sink. #Emmys2014 #glamour.”

But you didn’t expect Louis-Dreyfus to show up for the big night in a dishrag, now, did you? So, glamour it is. The Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series contender (and last year’s winner!) is a total knockout in a stunning custom gown by her go-to designer, Carolina Herrera. “Working with Mrs. Herrera and her team is a dream come true,” the brunette beauty tells PEOPLE.

The raspberry draped dress features a twisted and draped halter neckline, a cinched waist with contrasting skinny belt, an open back with criss-cross leather straps and gathering in all the right places. “It’s very heavy and it’s gold, and I love it. And I’ve just now forgotten the designer,” Louis-Dreyfus gushed of her clutch during the E! pre-show (she later revealed it’s Lee Savage).

Hairstylist David Gardner (the very same who was washing her hair in the sink) shared a shot of the star in full prep mode (with the product used to achieve her incredibly perfect blowout). We wouldn’t mind a similarly “glamorous” night at home ourselves.

Aug/24/2014 at 01:15 PM ET

Yvette Nicole Brown is ready to shed the skin she’s in … or at least the wig.

“I want to show African American women that all of our hair is beautiful in its natural state,” the Community star told PEOPLE at Entertainment Weekly‘s Pre-Emmy Party at Fig & Olive on Saturday.

Her first step? Going without her own collection of weaves to reveal her real hair.

“We don’t have to add pieces,” the actress, 43, says. “I’m at a place in my life where I want to be authentically myself.”
