"My grandma asked me in the car, she's like, 'Are you nervous?'" the star told PEOPLE on the red carpet. "I was like, 'No,' And she was like, 'Well, your whole ass is hanging out.' And I was like, 'All right, Grandma, let's just take a beat.'"

King also shared that she doesn't get really get nervous for events anymore, even when wearing something "risky."

"I really love this look. It's so fun," she said. "It is a little bit risky, but I really like it. It's also a nice cool breeze flowing through it."
