Amy Schumer Got Real About Her Period On the Emmys Red Carpet

Amy Schumer has a reputation for keeping it real, and we love her for it. From finding humor in intestinal issues, to shutting down Twitter trolls in a way only Amy could do, to dropping some major body positivity, the comedian is changing the way we talk about being a woman (just look at how she manages to spin a potential girl fight moment with Ashley Graham into major #girlpower).

Last night at the Emmys she took her realness to a new level when asked about her killer red carpet look for the evening. In line with the usual round of awards show questions, E! host Giuliana Rancic asked the Emmy-nominated Schumer (who was there with her sister, Kim Caramele) which designer made her gorgeous gown for the big event. And in true Schumer fashion, Amy answered that and so much more.

In response to the monotonous question, "Who are you wearing?" (Can't we do better than this by now?), Schumer replied, "Vivienne Westwood, Tom Ford shoes, and an O.B. Tampon." Whether or not you find the revelation to be TMI, her comment brings up memories for women everywhere who have had to suffer through big events (prom night, interviews, vacations, or gasp—weddings!) while on their periods. Not exactly glamorous, but totally relatable. If you missed the moment, see how Amy's glorious response played out.
