You can always count on Amy Schumer to stand out at high profile celebrity events, especially since she says she abhors them. So when Giuliana Rancic asked the comedian what she was wearing on the red carpet at the 68th Emmy Awards, it wasn't very shocking (or traumatising) when she replied "Vivienne Westwood, Tom Ford shoes and an O.B. tampon!"

We might love Amy for her brand of realness but her sister Kim Caramele's expression suggests that she feels otherwise (poor Kim). Amy had been nominated for six awards this year, and although she didn't go home with a trophy, she left us with a cool fact about herself.

"[I keep my awards] in my laundry room because I'm friends with all comedians and they keep you really humble," she said. "Nobody wants to walk in and see your trophies. They would throw them in the trash. Yeah, they're a mean group."

You keep doing you, Amy!
