In a dazzling display of elegance and style, Academy Award winners Michelle Yeoh and Gwyneth Paltrow graced the Los Angeles premiere of the new Netflix series The Brothers Sun at the Netflix Tudum Theater on Thursday evening, January 4.
The unlikely duo, who joined the cast, including Sam Song Li, Justin Chien, Highdee Kuan, and Joon Lee, brought back ’90s vibes with their fashion-forward looks, adding glamour to the star-studded event.
Michelle Yeoh’s Roaring Balenciaga Leopard Print Trench Coat
For the occasion, Michelle Yeoh, who stars as Mama Sun in the action comedy, turned heads on the red carpet in a bold and chic double-breasted leather trench coat adorned with an all-over leopard print.
The 61-year-old actress’ tan Balenciaga creation from the luxury fashion house’s Fall/Winter 2023 ready-to-wear collection featured exaggerated padded shoulders for a touch of drama to her ensemble.

While Yeoh’s belted outfit had notched lapels folded up on the runway to give the effect of a high neckline, Yeoh kept them down to showcase her jet-black knit top underneath.
The Everything Everywhere All at Once star paired the statement piece with denim pants, complemented by platform stilettos peeking from beneath the long coat.
She accessorized her look with jewelry from Jacob & Co., making a strong statement on the red carpet.
Yeoh wore her hair in a chic low ponytail, and wispy bangs delicately framed her face, beautifully enhancing her radiant makeup palette.
Gwyneth Paltrow’s Red Radiance in Cong Tri Dress
Gwyneth Paltrow, supporting husband Brad Falchuk, who co-created the new series with Byron Wu, radiated in a stunning bright red dress that stole the spotlight.
The 51-year-old actress and businesswoman’s Cong Tri creation from the Vietnamese luxury fashion brand’s Spring/Summer 2024 ready-to-wear collection showcased an ultra-plunging neckline and a skinny red leather belt cinched at her tiny waist.

The Royal Tenenbaums star’s monochrome look exuded retro charm, paired with Paris Texas Lidia patent-leather slingback pumps.
Paltrow opted for flashy accessories, including dramatic shoulder-duster earrings made of geometric golden metal pieces that popped against her signature blonde hair.
