Bowen Yang Shines in Towering Platform Heels and Tailored Tuxedo for 2021 Emmys Awards

Bowen Yang arrived at the 2021 Emmy Awards on Sunday in Los Angeles in high-shine fashion.

The “Saturday Night Live” star — who’s nominated for best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series — hit the red carpet in a slim-fitting black tuxedo by Zegna. The two-piece set featured pointed silk lapels, as well as a sharp white shirt, black tie and white pocket square. Yang’s dapper ensemble was complete with an edgy single silver hoop earring and ring, as well as a dazzling floral Tiffany & Co. brooch.

For footwear, Yang stunned in a pair of silver platform ankle boots by Syro. The pair, which appeared to be a custom version of the brand’s popular Rancho boots, included a 2-inch high platform and 5.5-inch block heels. The style was complete with bold square toes. When paired with Yang’s elegant tux, his boots added a dose of drama to the traditional menswear look.
