Seyfried paired her sparkly black shorts and matching blazer with a crisp white button-down and black pointy-toed pumps. She kept her accessories to a minimum, forgoing any jewelry except for her engagement ring. Her blonde hair was deeply parted to the side and styled in Old Hollywood-esque waves. For glam, she chose peachy tones with a pink cat eye shadow and matching lips.

Emmy nominations will be announced next month, so the actress and her co-workers are promoting their show. Seyfried was praised for her Elizabeth Holmes impersonation in the series, which detailed the downfall of the disgraced founder and CEO and her company Theranos that was once valued at $10 billion.

Seyfried opened up about her experience of transforming into the convicted executive during an interview with Variety. "It's never going to be as intense as it was for her … but as for our purposes of our story, I gave it my all and I had a really amazing time doing it and I needed a break," she recalled. "I think about it often, like 'What did you know? What is she inventing right now? What is she thinking about?'"
