The 48-year-old Killing Eve star’s motto for the evening was most certainly go-big-or-go-home, as demonstrated by her absolutely enormous sleeves.
Oh graced the red carpet wearing an effervescent Elie Saab haute couture champagne and blush gown from the spring/summer 2020 collection with Pomellato jewels. It had a bow! It had ruffles! It had a plunging neckline! It even had a sheer, beaded skirt! But we can all agree that Oh’s sleeves were by far the most noticeable element of her look.
Don’t get us wrong—Sandra Oh is a goddess no matter what she selects for a red carpet affair. But still, we have to wonder how she fit those babies in a car. Are they heavy? Do her biceps have room to breathe? And are those sleeves nominated for Best Supporting Actress in a Drama? Because they really should be.
In her BBC series, Oh plays the perpetually nonplussed plain jumper- and windbreaker-wearing Eve Polastri. It appears, however, for this year’s Oscars she opted to adopt her co-star Jodie Comer’s character’s style (read: extra in the best way possible) and really go for it.
But the best part of the star’s sculptural bunches? Oh will have a couple of really comfy pillows to rest her head on should it turn out to be a particularly late evening.
