The true star of every red carpet
When you think of celebrity fashion icons, who comes to mind? Rihanna? Harry Styles? someone else?
While all of those answers are great, there’s one person who should definitely come to mind — actor, writer, activist, and Marvel superhero Gemma Chan.
You might know her as Sersi from Eternals or Astrid Leong-Teo from Crazy Rich Asiansbut you should definitely recognize her from her iconic sense of style — both on the red carpet and off.
Here are 25 of Gemma Chan’s best looks:
Of course, we have to start with her 2022 Met Gala look by Louis Vuitton:
She always brings her best to the Met Gala, as proven by this Prabal Gurung creation she wore in 2021:
She made a strong Met Gala debut when she wore Tom Ford in 2019:
Her 2019 Met Gala afterparty look by Tom Ford also deserves applause:
She was once again pretty in pink with the Valentino gown she sported at the 2019 Academy Awards:
She came through with another incredible Tom Ford afterparty look at the 2019 Vanity Fair Oscar Party:
Her Louis Vuitton look from the Eternals Los Angeles premiere was on ethereal:
She sparkled in this Zuhair Murad cropped hoodie at the Eternals UK premiere:
here again Eternals photocall outfits were celestial, like the Valentino dress she wore to the Rome Film Festival:
If you told me this dress she also wore to the 2021 Rome Film Festival was made by Aphrodite instead of Magda Butrym, I’d believe you:
the Eternals press tour wasn’t her first time looking marvelous on the red carpet. Here she is wearing a remarkable Ralph & Russo jumpsuit to the Captain Marvel Los Angeles premiere:
You can’t forget this colorful Mary Katrantzou dress she donned at a Captain Marvel fan event in Singapore:
And here she is wearing Brandon Maxwell at the Captain Marvel European premiere:
She sported another fabulous cap-sleeve ensemble to the 2019 Film Independent Spirit Award, this time by Miu Miu:
When she attended a private dinner Michael Kors held in 2019, she of course had to wear one of his prettiest designs:
Again proving this shade of pink was invented just for her, she stunned in Oscar de la Renta at the 2019 SAG Awards:
She plays with bold colors on the red carpet, too. Look at this purple gown she wore to the 2012 Orange British Academy Film Awards:
She graced the 2017 Sentebale Royal Salute Polo Cup with an enviable green jumpsuit:
Here’s the beautiful blue gown she sported at the 2015 Moët British Independent Film Awards:
Of course, we can’t forget the floral Erdem dress she wore to the 2019 National Board of Review Gala:
She’s also great at vintage glamor. She shone at the 74th Annual Cannes Film Festival in this Oscar de la Renta gown:
She embodied the Tudor era beautifully at the European Premiere of Mary Queen of Scots†
Now, let’s hear it for the long-sleeved looks, like this trench coat dress she sported at the Burberry Prorsum Show at London Fashion Week Autumn/Winter 2011:
This cold-shoulder dress she wore to the House of Fraser British Academy Television Awards 2016 lives in my mind rent free:
And finally, if her outfit from the Louis Vuitton Womenswear Fall/Winter 2022/2023 show during Paris Fashion Week doesn’t prove to you that Gemma Chan is a fashion icon, then I don’t know what will:
