Emmys 2021 nominee Cecily Strong channels Angelina Jolie in leggy dress on red carpet

The 'Saturday Night Live' star is nominated for outstanding supporting actress in a comedy series

Cecily Strong made a striking entrance at the 2021 Emmy Awards on Sunday night.

The 37-year-old "Saturday Night Live" actress, who is nominated for outstanding supporting actress in a comedy series, showed some skin on the red carpet in a skin-tight black dress that channeled one worn by Angelina Jolie in 2012.

Jolie's gown became instantly famous when she showed off her toned legs on the red carpet. The fashion moment sparked both memes and praise for the star.

Like Jolie's before her, Strong's long-sleeved gown featured a deep-V and a high leg slit, showing off her own figure.
