Sarah Snook's plunging lilac Emmy's dress was the highlight of the show as the actor accepted the Award for Outstanding Drama Series on behalf of Succession. 

Sarah Snook is one of the main cast members of the incredible HBO show Succession, and plays the formidable character, Shiv Roy, the only daughter of Logan Roy. Her role in this show has impressed fans for years and many were delighted to see the actress appear on stage to accept this Emmy on behalf of the show. 

The actress' incredible style was another focal point for a lot of viewers who were stunned by Sarah's plunging lilac gown. The soft delicate color and silk-like material of the dress contrasted directly with the deep v-cut of the plunging gown and the structured waist and skirt of the stunning gown. 

It is thought that this gown is a custom-made Brandon Maxwell gown that was created for this red carpet moment for the star.
