Melissa Ordway of The Young and the Restless took over the soap opera's Instagram during the Daytime Emmys on Sunday. Throughout the takeover, she gave fans a glimpse into her day leading up to the show, the process of getting ready, and the red carpet.
She kicked off the day of the awards show with a photo of herself and her two daughters. Ordway said in her Instagram caption that she was "Playing dress up" with her kids before heading to hair and makeup. She added that she was looking forward to the big night.
Not long after, Ordway hit the makeup chair to get her hair done and do a little pre-show glam. She wasn't yet dressed for the awards, however. Ordway cut a casual figure in the photo, sporting a peach colored t-shirt and grey leggings with sandals.
When she finally made it to the awards show, Ordway posted photos of other The Young and The Restless co-stars. She appeared on the carpet wearing an emerald green gown with one shoulder detailing and a high slit. The 36-year-old posed alongside James, who plays Devon Hamilton on the long-running series, in one of her Instagram photos.
Husband Justin Michael Gaston joined her at the event. The pair posed for a photo opportunity together at the Daytime Emmys, before making their way to their respective seats.
