Michelle Yeoh Gets Whimsical in White Dress at Oscars Red Carpet 2023 – Footwear News
Michelle Yeoh made a romantically elegant entrance at the 2023 Oscars. The actress is notably nominated tonight for Best Actress for her role in “Everything Everywhere All at Once.”
Yeoh arrived to the 95th Academy Award in Hollywood on Sunday night, hand-in-hand with partner Jean Todt. For the occasion, the actress wore a flowing white tiered gown. The sleeveless piece featured a sheer bodice with a high neckline, which streamed into curved matte paneling. Yeoh’s attire was dramatically covered in sprays of feathers that flowed into a long draped hem for added formality.
Yeoh glamorously paired her dramatic dress with equally bold jewels: a diamond ring, swinging drop earrings and a necklace (worn as a hairpiece) by high jewelry brand Moussaieff. A diamond-encrusted watch sharply accented the pieces’ sparkle as well, while remaining sharp and classic.
When it came to shoes, Yeoh’s footwear couldn’t be seen beneath her gown’s long hem. However, given the “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon” actress‘ past ensembles seen at events including the BAFTAs, SAG Awards, Independent Spirit Awards and Oscar nominees luncheon, it’s highly likely she wore an embellished or tonal pair of pointed-toe pumps or platform-soled heels to complete her look.
The annual Oscars celebrates film, cinematography and the artists who bring characters to life. This year, Jimmy Kimmel hosts the show. Performances include Rihanna and Lady Gaga, and presenters include Dwayne Johnson, Emily Blunt, Janelle Monáe and more. For the 95th annual ceremony, the red carpet was swapped for a champagne color due to an aesthetic choice to enhance the photography during the arrivals. The champagne carpet is the first to change from red since the 33rd Oscars in 1961.
