The reason behind this green troll’s shocking Emmys ensemble.

There are looks, there are looks, and then there’s whatever Princess Poppy was serving at the 2024 Emmy Awards.

The “RuPaul’s Drag Race” alum showed up in support of the Emmy-winning competition show giving what can only be described as “glamorous troll.” Fabulous green gown? She had it. Movie-worthy makeup and prosthetics? She had it. A scary little purse with eyeballs on it? Oh, she had that too.

Don’t let the bag, custom made by designer Li Shen Ooi, distract you from the rest of the ensemble. Poppy also sported fake lashes, lime green puffy mules and a hairline that would have sent Renaissance-era nobility to their knees. Princess Poppy credited the dress to costume designer Bryn Costume.

“Mainly I wanted to be a troll-slash-hag. I wanted to be so shocking that you just have to turn and look at me — in the worst way possible,” she told Entertainment Weekly.

So not just a look, but a made-you-look. Princess Poppy elaborated to The Los Angeles Times:

“I wanted to take everything that is rude and ugly about the usual decorum of awards and do the complete opposite,” she said. “I wanted to be a troll, to literally and figuratively troll the Emmys.”

Princess Poppy told the Times that when she first started performing, she felt an “insurmountable amount of pressure to look gorgeous and beautiful.” But then she said she realized, “Oh wait, I can do the opposite.”
