Pose star Indya Moore turns heads in racy high-cut dress at Emmy Awards... as show competes for Outstanding Drama Series
Indya Moore is one of the rising stars of FX's acclaimed drama series Pose and one of the most visible transgender actors working today.
And the star showed off their glamorous style as they hit the red carpet at the 2019 Emmy Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday.
The 24-year-old star was draped in a white gown with scandalously high slits that left little to the imagination.

Indya's dress had a bustier-style top featuring a prominent zipper and a cut-out highlighting their cleavage.
The sleeveless look highlighted their trim arms and showed off a hint of their underarm hair.
The 5ft8in actor and model showed off their long, slender legs, which were left au naturel, thanks to the dress' super high slits.
Indya added a touch of glamour with shimmering gold heels and a matching gold canister clutch.
They wore a gold necklace with a white flower petal inset and had their hair done up in voluminous dark ringlets.

The star's makeup look for the evening was created by beauty pro Elyse Thomas for Pat McGrath Labs, who gave the Pose star a beautiful red carpet glow.
To enhance Indya's glowing complexion, Elyse used Pat's Skin Fetish: Sublime Perfection Primer and Foundation, blending the product in with the brand's Foundation Brush.
Indya's beautiful glow was further enhanced with the Skin Fetish: Sublime Skin Highlighting Trio, which was used on the cheeks and chest, while the Skin Fetish Highlighter + Balm Duo helped to highlight the high points of the face, and on the eyes.
As well as the highlighter, Indya's eyes were also further accentuated with shades from the Mothership VI: Midnight Sun Eyeshadow Palette, while the star's eyes were further enhanced with a few coats of the FetishEyes Mascara.
Indya stars on Pose as Angel Evangelista as a transgender woman and sex worker who joins in New York City's ballroom culture in the late 1980s and early 1990s.
The scene, which was chronicled in the classic documentary Paris Is Burning, featured LGBTQ performers walking, dancing, or voguing in competitions, often while in drag.
The series premiered last year to nearly universal critical praise, with many reviewers singling out Indya's performance.
Pose is nominated at tonight's award showing for Outstanding Drama Series, as well as for Billy Porter's performance.

Indya, who is transgender and non-binary, had a tumultuous childhood in the Bronx.
They moved out of their family home at the age of 14 to escape what they've described as transphobic parents.
But shortly after seeking independence, Indya began picking up modeling work from influentials brands including Dior and Gucci.
A background role in Netflix's hip hop series The Get Down led to greater film and television opportunities, and the actor was featured in the well-reviewed independent film Saturday Church.

Earlier this month, Indya took a stand for the rights of trans women during their appearance at the Fashion Media Awards, where she was being honored with the Cover of the Year Award.
The star was dressed in a shimmering red gown, but it was their striking long earrings that were the center of attention.
The dangling strands were adorned with sixteen small photos of trans women who were murdered in just the past year.

During their speech at the event, Indya shared the stark statistic that black trans women only live to age 35 on average.
'It’s a bittersweet feeling... Right now in the Supreme Court, they’re voting on whether or not trans people can access employment, shelter and healthcare in the same ways that you all have access,' she said. 'It’s hard to celebrate being celebrated for being myself during a time when people like me are being murdered for being themselves.
'This year, 16 known women were taken from us because of that same fear,' she continued. 'On this day that I’m celebrated and awarded for being visible, I decided to bring them with me. I’m wearing them on my ears as earrings.'
