A flowing red outfit was worn by Canadian-American actress Catherine O'Hara, and was named among the ten best outfits by Harper's Bazaar UK.

“Catherine O'Hara brought some colour to the red carpet, wearing a beautiful bright red design by Cong Tri. The ensemble was made up of an off-the-shoulder jumpsuit with dramatic draping and a long train,” the fashion magazine wrote about the outfit.

The jumpsuit, made of chiffon fabric with high quality folding techniques, is a piece from CONG TRI ready-to-wear Fall-Winter 2021 collection, which was introduced in Vogue few months ago.

The Emmy red carpet also saw American actress and singer Renee Elise Goldsberry sport a gown by Công Trí, made of tweed fabric, silk and feathers. The soft, feminine and romantic-styled dress is among the CONG TRI Fall-Winter 2020 collection.

Earlier, at the 2021 Emmy Award pre-show on September 18, American actress MJ Rodriguez, who is the first transgender woman to be nominated for an Emmy in a lead acting category, walked on the red carpet in a creation from the CONG TRI ready-to-wear Fall-Winter 2021 collection.

According to Trí, he and his team spent about 200 hours to complete the sheer black top, using the hand-weaving techniques.

MJ Rodriguez is a fan of the CONG TRI fashion brand as she so far has sported his creations at four different high-profile events.

Since Trí’s debut at the New York Fashion Week in 2019 where his collection earned great acclaim from the international fashion world, his global popularity has been on the rise. Many celebrities have worn his creations to celebrated events.

Before the 2021 Emmy Awards, at the red carpet of the Toronto International Film Festival, Mission Impossible star Rebecca Ferguson showcased a black silk gown also from the latest collection of Trí.

Alongside her, this year, actresses Jennifer Hudson, Charlize Theron, Hailee Steinfeld, Kelly Marie Tran and singers Bebe Rexha, Leslie Grace, Jazmine Sullivan, and Becky G all sported his outfits at several events.

Trí’s creations have also been worn by other A-list figures such as former US First Lady Michelle Obama, singers Beyoncé, Rihanna, and Katy Perry, singer-songwriter and rapper Lizzo, Victoria’s Secret model Josephine Skriver, American actresses Kate Bosworth, and Gabrielle Union.
