Regina King’s Ponytail At The 2019 Emmy Awards After-Party Was A Total Transformation From Her First Look
Next-level looks were abounding on the 2019 Emmy Awards red carpet, but Hollywood wasn't finished once the ceremony came to a close. Following Regina King's first look featuring an eggshell blue Jason Wu gown and a cropped bob, the Academy Award-winning actor demonstrated the art of the quick-change, donning an emerald green Christopher John Rogers suit at the 2019 Emmy Awards after-party. Regina King's ponytail was a bit deceiving at first, appearing to be a voluminous bob from the frontside view. However, as the actor turned to the side, it was clear that the hairstyle was anything but ordinary.
With textured waves and shine throughout, the structural hairstyle — courtesy of celebrity hairstylist Larry Sims — featured African-inspired gold adornments around the base of the statement ponytail. Sims lent a metallic pop of shine via carefully wrapped gold thread that looked like wire, captioning the look "R E G I N A #TheSwitchUp" on Instagram. The switch-up was real, folks — because King flawlessly proved her ability to serve ethereal glamour and boss-level suiting all in one night.
King wasn't the only star nailing a switch-up at HBO's Post Emmy Awards reception at The Pacific Design Center. After Zendaya stunned in a revealing Vera Wang gown at the ceremony, the Euphoria star opted for a floral Alexandre Vauthier ballgown that served a young and spritely vibe following the sultry first look. After all, it's one of the biggest nights of the year for leading ladies such as King and Coleman, so they were pulling out all the stops from start to finish.
King's unconventional hairstyle may seem a bit intimidating at first glance, but it's actually more simple than you may think. As proven by the If Beale Street Could Talk star's commanding party look, an eccentric hairstyle is the perfect addition to a structured pantsuit.
