We always did love Miss Sandra, even more after her award-winning turn in Killing Eve, but between her charming acceptance speech, killer fashion, and ability to rise above the mediocrity of the evening, we think she came out of the night on a career high.
When she first stepped out in this we tweeted that we might have called it disappointing if we thought it was the only dress she was going to wear that night. As an appetizer, it’s perfect. Elegant, glamorous, flattering as hell and photogenic. We don’t love the flounce or the strap the longer we look at this, but there’s no denying that she looks amazing in a body-skimming white gown. Not sure about the hair but the jewelry is on point.
LOVED this. As soon as she stepped out in this there was a lot of chatter on social media about an Asian woman wearing a red dress, but a lot of it struck us as knee-jerk. While we don’t want to take away from the significance of her hosting this event, we loved this dress for countering any cliched commentary with a stark, sexy modernity and subtle, smart glam.
It took us a minute to come around on this dress. And truth be told, we may have fallen in love with it partially because her acceptance speech while wearing it was so incredibly charming, but in the light of day, we find we still adore it. As noted, she looks amazing in body-con white, but the sleeves give it a real sense of glamour and a sort of sci-fi regal quality in the Leia mode. In combination with the hair and earrings, it’s just a killer look. Totally unforgettable.
