Her look from the 52nd annual Grammy Awards is a long way from suburbia. Back in 2010, The Big Bang Theory star slayed on the red carpet, wearing a standout black silk dress with a train that gathered at her feet. It plunged down to her stomach and met draping at the waist. Slightly shiny, the material's sheen gave it all a chic, elevated look.
Grabbing all the attention, the gown took center stage as she simply accessorized with two silver bangles and a leopard print bedazzled clutch. Kaley wore her platinum blonde hair and side bangs straight to match the silky outfit.
Leaning into the smoky eye trend, Kaley complemented the sultry ensemble with a black smolder that made her light green eyes pop. A flush of blush and a light pink lip softened the dark shadow.
Impressed far beyond its debut, fans resurfaced the red carpet moment on Reddit. "Goddess-level perfection," one person wrote under the thread. "One of my favorite looks of her ever," another added. "She looks so incredibly beautiful in that dress ❤️," a different person replied.
The throwback moment looks a stark contrast to the starlet's current curly brunette hair with chunky bangs — the same her onscreen counterpart, Ava, adopted in Based on a True Story.
It hinges on a realtor (played by Kaley), a former tennis star (Chris Messina) and a plumber (Tom Bateman) who seize the opportunity to capitalize on America’s obsession with true crime. You can catch all eight episodes of the satirical thriller on Peacock — streaming right now.
