In a dazzling display of elegance and style, Shefali Shah, Jim Sarbh, and Vir Das — nominees at the 51st International Emmy Awards — brought a touch of Indian glamour to the opening cocktail night in New York. The trio, set to grace the coveted awards ceremony, paid homage to their Indian roots with sartorial choices that stole the spotlight.
Shefali Shah, a nominee for Best Performance by an Actress for her role in ‘Delhi Crime Season 2’, radiated glam in a sequinned ensemble crafted by the renowned Indian designer JJ Valaya. Her outfit, a mesmerising fusion of a full-length gown and a stylish long jacket, showcased Valaya’s distinctive chevron leaf patterns, adorned with a generous sprinkle of embellishments.
Jim Sarbh, nominated in the Best Performance by an Actor category for ‘Rocket Boys’, made a striking entrance in an exquisite floral-embroidered black jacket set designed by Rahul Mishra. Layered over a solid black T-shirt, the jacket exuded sophistication, perfectly complemented by crisp black pants, creating a seamless ensemble that captured attention.
Vir Das, recognised for his Netflix comedy special ‘Vir Das: Landing’, made a bold fashion statement in a traditional blue kurta set elegantly layered with an embroidered jacket. His fusion of contemporary style and traditional aesthetics showcased a blend of modernity and cultural richness.
As anticipation builds for the 51st International Emmy Awards scheduled for November 20 in New York City, these nominees epitomise the global influence of Indian talent. The glitzy affair will not only celebrate outstanding performances but will also honour producer Ekta Kapoor with the prestigious International Emmy Directorate Award — making the star-studded event even more significant for the Indian entertainment industry.
