Amber Riley is currently on cloud 9 after her epic night at the 2017 Olivier Awards that was held at Royal Albert Hall in London last night.

The 31-year-old actress scooped up the Best Actress in a Musical award for her role in the stageplay Dreamgirls. The “Glee” star received rave reviews in her West End stage debut as the soulful songstress Effie White. And her incredible performance was recognized by the Society of London Theatre.

To top off her epic win, the fabulous actress slayed the hell out of this red floor length GINA BACCONI gown after receiving her award.

Before she nabbed her award…
