Amy Schumer Wears Vivienne Westwood - and an 'O.B. Tampon!' - to the Emmys, Declares Herself 'Trash from Long Island'
Leave it to Amy Schumer to leave jaws on the red carpet at the 2016 Emmy Awards. When asked the No. 1 most-asked question (“What are you wearing?”), the comedian gave a totally OMG answer that will go down in GIF history.
Before wrapping up a short arrival interview with E! Live From the Red Carpet, Schumer, 35, revealed her ensemble for the evening: a single-strap black Vivienne Westwood gown, Tom Ford heels and … “an O.B. tampon!”
And the star also joked that she was wearing “eight corsets and nine pairs of Spanx” under her dress during the ABC pre-show.

Schumer’s unapologetic attitude toward the red carpet isn’t new. Earlier this year, she addressed her disdain for getting glam for award shows and even took on the Met Gala calling it a “farce.”
She joked again about her experience at the annual fashion prom on the Emmys red carpet.
“It’s exciting. There’s like so many famous people here… Like the Met Gala was very intense,” she told E! Live From the Red Carpet. “It’s like the hottest, fiercest people and they’re all like posing, and I’m just kind of like a gym teacher… you try to do your best, but like I’m trash from Long Island and everyone can see that very clearly.”
When asked what advice she would give to her fellow Long Islanders, Schumer said: “I would advise them to stop smoking pot in the green room when they come see me.”
Well, there you have it.
