Kaley Cuoco Stepped Out in a Radiant Oscar de la Renta Princess Gown for the 2021 Golden Globes

True Cinderella vibes.

Many of the Golden Globe nominees tonight will be attending the ceremony virtually due to the coronavirus pandemic. Kaley Cuoco is among them, but she still dressed for her big night as if she was posing on the red carpet. Cuoco, who is nominated for Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy TV Series for her work in The Flight Attendant, went for full fairy tale vibes. The actress posed at her home in an embellished Oscar de la Renta princess dress with her hair down.

"@oscardelarenta @harrywinston 🤍🤍🤍 @goldenglobes 🤍🤍🤍@stuartweitzman," Cuoco wrote on her Instagram, crediting her dress designer, jewelry, and shoe designer.

Cuoco was really emotional wearing the dress, as she has never worn one from Oscar de la Renta before, Zanna Roberts Rassi revealed on E! Live from the Red Carpet special. "Brad [Goreski] told me she cried when she put it on," Rassi said, per People. "She's never worn Oscar [de la Renta] before—she's eating pizza in it right now."

Goreski shared more photos of Cuoco in her look. "Our very own Cinderella and double #goldenglobes nominee @kaleycuoco in @oscardelarenta gown, @harrywinston jewels & @stuartweitzman heels! Hair by @christinesymondshair makeup by @jamiemakeup #styledbyme & @daniela_viviana," he wrote.

In her Variety cover story, Cuoco joked about people seeing her as a newcomer when in reality, she has been in the public eye for years from her work on Big Bang Theory. “Was I able to reinvent myself overnight, and they’ve totally forgotten about everything else?” she said. “If they’re willing to see me like that, I’m just laughing in the corner.”

She also teased a little about season 2 and Cassie's journey with sobriety during it. “She thinks this is going to be quick and easy, and I’m nailing this!” Cuoco said. “And she’s going to learn really fast that this is a lifelong issue that will not be cured for her overnight.”
