Twice in the past month, we’ve found ourselves in conversation with someone about Michelle Yeoh and each time, everyone was in agreement about how happy they were for her at this moment of success and appreciation. We’re just saying. The lady’s got her fans and we’re glad she realizes that. Gold House, “the leading Asian and Pacific-Islander changemaker community,” realizes it too, because they held their inaugural Gold Gala in celebration of their A100 List and partnered with SeeHer to honor her with the the SeeHer Award, for “a woman who advocates for gender equality, portrays characters with authenticity, defies stereotypes and pushes boundaries.” Sounds about right to us. Before we get to the fashion, we have to share The Hollywood Reporter’s recounting of the event, including this portion of her acceptance speech:
“Science tells us women outlive men. But even with extra time, we have to get a lot more done,” Michelle Yeoh said in her acceptance speech for the SeeHer award at Gold House’s inaugural Gold Gala on Saturday night. “If you try to have a baby after the age of 35, science tells us that is a geriatric pregnancy. While men are just starting their lives” – here the screen icon shot a playful glare at her hapless presenters, directors Jon M. Chu and Destin Daniel Cretton and producer Jonathan Wang – “women are already starting the geriatric part of their lives. Hardly seems fair, right? Get down on your knees, boys.”
Only a legend of Yeoh’s stature could get the filmmakers behind three of Hollywood’s biggest recent hits – Crazy Rich Asians, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings and Everything Everywhere All at Once – to comply, which they did to the roar of approval of the 500-plus Asian Pacific Islander luminaries in attendance.
This is gorgeous on her. Elegant, sexy and chic. Our only quibble – and it’s not one we usually make, but in this instance, we think the relatively simple design and color story call for it – is that we wish she’d worn gold sandals to coordinate with the jewelry. It’s a minor point but that’s why it’s called a quibble. Regardless, she looks amazing and we’ll have more of the Gold Gala red carpet up in a bit.
