Oscars 2023 Countdown: Michelle Yeoh-ology

Posted on March 10, 2023

We said in an earlier post in this series that we could sum up most of the Oscar acting nominees this year with one word. For Everything Everywhere All At Once star Michelle Yeoh, that word is Fashionista.


At the Gold House Gala in Prabal Gurung

There will be absolutely no attempt to predict what she will wear on Oscar night because that simply isn’t how she utilizes red carpet fashion. There’s no sense in looking for themes or through-lines.


At the Governors Awards in Bottega Veneta

There’s no consistent shape, style, color or brand. And there’s really only one message being sent here over and over again. It’s a really simple one.


At the Santa Barbara International Film Festival in Valentino Couture

“Look at all of these amazing clothes..” There are a lot of actresses who clearly love fashion for a range of reasons, but Michelle Yeoh’s love of it is pure. It feels like she would wear these pieces whether she was a movie star or not.


At the Palm Springs International Film Awards in Schiaparelli Couture

Several of them are not what we’d call the best choice for a red carpet, but they have a fashion editor’s sense of the dramatic and a very wealthy woman’s love of the more prestigious, most expensive brands in the world.


At the National Board of Review Awards in Erdem

It’s not impossible to consider that she might wear a smaller label for the big night, but for the actual campaigning, she stuck to all of Anna Wintour’s faves.


At the Golden Globes in Armani Privé

Maybe this was more strategic than we’re allowing for, because it certainly lent her that air of high success all through this campaign.


At the London Film Critics’ Circle Awards in Alexander McQueen

She dressed like a winner, over and over again. And each time she did it…


At the BAFTAs in Dior Couture

She’d do it in a different style or in some sort of unexpected shape or color.


At the SAG Awards in Schiaparelli Couture

There’s no predicting what a true fashionista will wear at any given time because she loves fashion itself, not just parts and corners of it; the very idea of it and fact of its existence.


At the Producers Guild of America Awards in Chanel

We know this about her Oscar night look: It will be stunning, it will be tasteful, it will be impeccable, and Mother will be serving you a platter of her finest jewels.
