For the 2018 Emmys this year, Sarah Michelle Gellar decided to stay at home and watch the show from her couch, but that doesn’t mean she just threw on some pajamas and called it a night. The actress made it fun by fitting into her favorite Emmys dress that she wore in 1999 — and showed her fans that she’s still got it!
“I’m Emmy ready!” Sarah Michelle, 41, joked on Monday, Sept. 17 in an Instagram video. She hilariously held her 1995 Emmy award that she won for being an Outstanding Younger Leading Actress in a Drama Series for All My Children wearing a comfy pair of slip-on uggs.

Not only did she still look as amazing as she did when she originally wore the gown, but Sarah Michelle showed just how graceful she’s aged over the years, especially after having two kids, daughter Charlotte, 9, and son Rocky, 6, with her She’s All That star husband, Freddie Prinze Jr.
“Emmy ready…. on my couch (but excited it still fits) dress by @verawanggang ? by @ugg ? by my daughter #Emmys #Fashion #Emmys1999 #Emmys2018,” she captioned the video.
Sarah Michelle and Freddie, 42, recently celebrated their 16-year wedding anniversary on Tuesday, Sept. 4. On Instagram, she hilariously compared a longterm marriage to a deck of cards by saying, “In the beginning all you need is two hearts and a diamond. But years later, you wish you had a club and a spade.” But Sarah Michelle knows it takes a lot more than that to make a marriage work!
The Buffy the Vampire Slayer actress previously revealed to People the secret to her marriage — and it starts with always making time for one another. “Take the 10 minutes — put the phone down. Have a cup of coffee together. Walk the dog at the end of the night. Read a story with your kids,” she said. “Make the most of the time that you have. We are all pulled in so many directions, so make sure that, whichever one you are focusing on, you’re present.”
