Sandra Oh's SAG Gown: Love It or Hate It?

While Grey’s Anatomy may not have won the award for Best Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series it was up for, the cast definitely dazzled on the red carpet. But while her fellow stars went the traditional glam route — with Ellen Pompeo perhaps most notable in a gunmetal gray Nina Ricci dress — Sandra Oh, went traditional in an altogether different way. The Korean-Canadian actress looked to her heritage in choosing this black and fuchsia gown, which is based on a style of Korean dress. The designer, Kim Me Hee, “works in Korea town,” says Oh on the red carpet. “She’s a phenomenal designer — and no one knows who she is.” We love that Oh looked to her culture when choosing her SAG Awards dress, but we’re not sure how we feel about the proportions of the look, which seem to overwhelm the svelte actress. But we want to know what you think! Tell us: Do you love Sandra’s dress, or do you think she should have gone with something a little more sleek?

As a woman of Korean descent, I was very pleased to see this dress. I think it is a wonderful modern adaptation of the traditional hanbok and thought it looked very nice on Sandra Oh.

No…it makes it looks like the dress is swallowing her, yes the colour suits her.

I really like the dress on Sandra. It’s feminine, interesting and different.

I don’t like it. Don’t think there is any thing beautiful about that gown. The gown is too long too big,she can be pretty but not that day!

Nny on

It’s cute! And showing off your heritage like that is admirable.

I personally don’t like it and i don’t think it looks the greatest on her but i think that the other awards she looked a lot better with the calvin klein dress but if she likes it i guess thats what really counts!!

I think it’s BOLD but still looks awesome and she is stunning

Sandra has a great body and this massive gown totally consumes her figure. I give her props to trying to be traditional to her heritage but this combo of tradition/chic does not work well for her.

Robin on

Great colors, great idea, a big big for her features. Not awful, though!

dannie on

its not horrible but….why would you agree to wear that???
