Gemma Chan In Valentino Haute Couture – 2019 Oscars

Posted by Rachel Watkins

Fashion Blogger Catherine Kallon features Gemma Chan In Valentino Haute Couture - 2019 Oscars

Gemma Chan electrified the 2019 Oscars on Sunday (February 24) in Hollywood, California with a truly epic shade of hot pink.

The ‘Crazy Rich Asians’ beauty stepped out in this fabulously capacious Valentino Spring 2019 Haute Couture pleated design that felt like a new way to wear a ball gown.

Yes, it was a bit of a risk, but she carried it off with such modernity and ease of form.

I was mesmerized — even if I could possibly see it likened to a duvet cover should it have been a different shade.

    I love it, one of my faves

    I think she was gorgeous. I love that was big, and had ruffles, and pockets. My favorite from the night.

    A risk that paid off. Love every centimeter of it.

    I really like this. She’s got some guts to bring this sort of look to the Oscars and I love that she didn’t play it safe. She looks really awesome, love the whole look.

  6. The original AB February 25, 2019 at 10:45 am #

    I don’t like this at all. Unflattering and very cheap looking.

  7. Anne-Marie February 25, 2019 at 9:20 am #

    Love it, the colour, the volume, the attitude!

  8. TeaAtTwo February 25, 2019 at 8:59 am #

    I’ll take this over another typical bland Oscar gown. I’m a fan, she’s not lost in this and commands it.

    • Charlotte February 25, 2019 at 10:10 am #

      I don’t like shapeless dress, yet I agree with you, this is better than the boring dresses we usually see at this type of event. She wears it well.

  9. Marina February 25, 2019 at 4:39 am #

    Awful, cheap looking. Worst dressed of the night.

  10. Steph February 25, 2019 at 3:13 am #

    Not a oscar dress but definitely what a crazy rich asian would wear!
    Imagine her sipping tea in this for a scene in the movie sequel.
    That would have been epic!

  11. Aminet February 25, 2019 at 2:37 am #

    Really bad. She can do much better.

  12. CN February 25, 2019 at 2:02 am #

    Personally, I like it. It’s not your typical Oscar gown, and she’s carrying it confidently with beautiful styling.

  13. Fiona-Brasil February 25, 2019 at 1:48 am #

    Fabulous as her!!!

  14. Lashae February 25, 2019 at 1:27 am #

    Don’t like the color, shape nor the material

    • Real Nat39 February 25, 2019 at 2:12 am #

      +1 pink blanket

    I hate the amount of fabric but I love the color. I just can never love the voluminous sack shape.
    but overall, not the worst sack shape ive seen

  16. Ksenia Bradner February 25, 2019 at 1:16 am #

    BDOTW and BDOTW. Everyone said LUPITA for this but I love that Gemma got it first. Lots of stylists were vieing for this and I love that Gemma got it.

  17. meme February 25, 2019 at 1:14 am #

    The color is great, the dress is hideous.

  18. Amber February 25, 2019 at 1:02 am #

    The color is gorgeous on her, but the dress itself is a mess.

  19. weiss February 25, 2019 at 1:02 am #

    This is a very rich art lady type of couture that we rarely get to see at awards shows.Very few actresses have enough panache to dare to wear something like this, while simultaneously presenting in a restrained and beautiful way.

    I think she looks amazing and props to Gemma to wear something different, most actresses go for the princess/old hollywood route, which usually ends up with everyone looking the same.

    Her glam is great, she looks beautiful and I love the colour. I feel like this look won’t age well though. I know this is Valentino’s suilhoute of the moment but if it had been modified to be more cinched at the waist I think this would have been BDOTY worthy.

    • Jessicamara February 25, 2019 at 1:37 am #


    • yo February 25, 2019 at 2:37 am #

      It would’ve looked like every other dress if it had been cinched at the waist.

  21. Fee February 25, 2019 at 12:49 am #

    I dont hate it, but if she was going to go big, I wish she’d picked something else from this Valentino collection. .

    • Jas February 25, 2019 at 1:19 am #

      +1 appreciate that she took a risk though

  22. Ruth February 25, 2019 at 12:46 am #

    I love the dress but she’s not selling it to me. She is not carrying the dress well. I saw a video of her on the carpet and she looked overwhelmed.

  23. Caroline February 25, 2019 at 12:45 am #


    • MW February 25, 2019 at 12:52 am #


      There are millions of pretty dresses out there and she wears this?

  24. Kimma February 25, 2019 at 12:41 am #

    She carries these strong colours so beautifully. I hope she gets a lot of love for this as I think she’s been harshly judged this awards season.

  25. KHLBHL February 25, 2019 at 12:36 am #

    I’m in love.

    On anyone else, yes, this would overwhelm them, but she has such a statuesque and graceful aura that she totally pulls this off.

  26. brat February 25, 2019 at 12:33 am #

    I’ve been so disappointed in this years red carpet so far. This is terrible. Gemma started out as a favorite of mine but in the last few months, that’s quickly changed.

    • JHH February 25, 2019 at 12:40 am #


    • Fee February 25, 2019 at 12:50 am #

      +2 it’s the worst I can remember. It’s like everyone has given up.

      • brat February 25, 2019 at 1:14 am #

        where is Lupita, Kiki and Zendaya? Surely out of those 3 we’ll have a winning moment.

  27. Vizual Ninja February 25, 2019 at 12:32 am #

    I really wish I liked it this because she took a risk but no duvet cover is all that comes to mind.

    • JHH February 25, 2019 at 12:41 am #

      My daughter went through a bright pink phase and this looks just like her comforter from those days.

  28. Maya February 25, 2019 at 12:31 am #

    I LOVE this! It’s a lot of dress, but Gemma Chan has the face and the bearing to pull of capital-F-Fashion.

    • Serena February 25, 2019 at 9:10 am #

      Absolutely agree! This is definitely a polarizing look, but I thought she was the best dressed and BDOTW. The only flaw was all the flyaway bits of hair noticeable in the on-camera close-ups.

  29. Christine February 25, 2019 at 12:31 am #

    Nope. Reminds me of a sling toy.

    The material is fugly. Another disappointment.

    The Oscars can be a bit safe fashion wise, so I love that it’s far from your usual Oscar gown. I also definitely prefer this to her Valentino at the Globes.
