Sandra Oh had a very good night at the 2019 Golden Globes: She kicked off her duties as host with an incredibly heartfelt speech, made some hilarious jokes, and then went on to collect her own trophy for Best Actress in a TV Drama, becoming the first Asian American woman to win that category in almost 40 years. Throughout all of this, Oh wore a trio of incredible gowns that were quite meaningful themselves.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Elizabeth Saltzman, Oh’s stylist, explained that they decided to showcase exclusively “strong female designers” through the actress’s wardrobe at the Golden Globes. “I decided to think of things that would make her feel confident and empowered and beautiful,” she said.
The two women who best communicated that, Saltzman added, were Donatella Versace and Stella McCartney. “I don’t know a more fearless, bold person who works harder than Donatella,” she said. “Donatella really gives. She’s super empowering, and super fun, and has been through stuff.” McCartney, meanwhile, helped them create “the most amazing kapow! dress” that “[felt] like something out of the great Hollywood films of yesteryear.”
