Chrissy Metz isn't afraid to take fashion risks on the red carpet, and we love it.

Ruffles, metallic fabric, pink sequins, brilliant florals—the This Is Us star is willing to try just about anything and consistently stuns on the red carpet. Her keen eye for style is of no surprise, as the star has been making her own clothes since she was a teen, since many stores didn't carry clothes that were flattering on her body or even fit.

"I had to make [my style] my own, because otherwise you'd look like someone's grandma and you're 14," she said in an interview with People. "I got super creative. I made a purse out of an old Baskin Robbins ice cream tub."

With this level of creativity at a young age, it's no wonder that the star feels comfortable wearing out-of-the-box fashion and dressing for her body. And, if you don't care for her choices, guess what? She doesn't care.

Who says ombre is only for your hair? The color palette paired to the sleeves makes this look sheer magic.

Layering Lace

Evening Embellishments

Chrissy is a vision in this floral embellished gown at this year's People's Choice Awards. 

Rock n' Roll Red

The This is Us actress shows that Rock n' Roll can also be chic and feminine. With structured sleeves and a pleated skirt, this red leather number heats up the red carpet.

Golden Glamour

There's nothing like gold metallic to capture the flashes of the camera just right. 


This bouquet-evoking gown is perfectly on-trend with this season's embellishment craze.

Prim and Proper

Ravishing Rouge

Think Pink

Pink is taking the fashion world by storm, and Chrissy knows it! The rosy shade of her dress soften up the shimmery sequins for understated glamour.

Velvet and Valorous

Blue Velvet is not just a Lana Del Rey song. It's a fashion statement. Metz makes it her own with a flattering neckline and silver leaf touches.
