Gemma Chan made an epic entrance on the red carpet in a pink gown at the 2019 Academy Awards on Sunday at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles.
Styled by Rebecca Corbin Murray, the 36-year-old Crazy Rich Asians actress donned a ruffled Valentino Spring 2019 Haute Couture dress featuring a long train and discrete front pockets. She added a cool hairpin that said “love!”

Her dark brunette locks were styled by Clariss Rubenstein into a disheveled bun at the nape of her neck. She created the look with products from The One by Frederic Fekkai and tools from Olivia Garden.

‘The way Gemma combines extreme glamour and a certain coolness gives me French actress vibes,’ the celebrity hairstylist said of the inspiration behind Gema’s hairstyle.
‘I love how Brigitte Bardot’s hair always looked intentional and had a point of view, while still looking totally effortless. I had that in mind when creating Gemma’s look today. I never want Gemma to look too coiffed. She’s far too cool for that.’
Do you think Gemma was one of the best or worst dressed this year? She completed her look with Jimmy Choo shoes and Bulgari jewelry.
