Shira Haas about wearing Chanel haute couture Shira Haas about:
“I’ve known and loved Chanel for as long as I can remember. When I was a teenager, I was already in awe of the outfits, the craftsmanship, the perfume – L’Eau Numéro 5 is actually one of the two perfumes I wear – I was always a fan of the brand. And when the Emmy nomination for Unorthodox came, it was obvious to me I wanted to wear Chanel. I was so happy and honored my dream came true.”
“This Haute Couture dress was my immediate choice. It captured my eyes instantly; you see some skin but you can tell there is so much effort even on the smallest details. It’s such an interesting and edgy dress, yet very classic and elegant. It’s the perfect combination of something very chic and cool at the same time. And as it is Haute Couture, I feel grateful and lucky to be able to wear it. This dress is kind of my definition of a fashion love story.”
“When I was told the dress had requested more than 1,200 hours of work, I was stunned. But when it arrived to Israel, which was challenging, I know, I could see it immediately why. Everything is handmade: every embroidered flower, every pearl, even the smallest detail, you can tell someone worked so much on it. This is what luxury is. For me it’s like when a movie or a TV serie is made out of love from its director, it becomes true art: this dress is a piece of art to me. It tells a story like a script does. So it made perfect sense I could wear such a dress to an event that shines a light on story tellers.”
“I am very happy and excited for tonight, even though the ceremony is virtual this year. The first time I fitted the Chanel Haute Couture dress made all this feel very real, like a first day on set, when you wear for the first time the costume of your character and you know it is on. And as I am petite, I don’t take it for granted. This Awards show is a celebration, not only for me with my first time Emmy nomination, but for all the people who worked so hard on Unorthodox. The dress is a part of it: it gives this moment its uniqueness.”
Shira Haas about being nominated for the 72nd Emmy Awards:
“Being nominated for Unorthodox was a huge honor. When you work on a project, you are concentrated on telling the story the right way and doing justice to the character you’re playing. And when it finally came out on Netflix, in the middle of lockdown, it touched so many people from different countries, genders, religions… It was amazing and totally unexpected, that’s the best I could wish for. To be nominated for my work on this serie was something I could only dream of, especially alongside so many great actresses, a group including Oscars nominees and winners that I have admired and looked up to for so long. So just to be on the same list as these ladies felt already like winning to me.”
