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?

i love the colors and the modern twist to the traditional hanbok. props to sandra for looking to our heritage for inspiration and for taking a fashion risk. though the traditional hanbok has a long full skirt and assymetrical bow on top, i would have scaled down the skirt just a bit to give the overall silhouette a sleeker shape.

All I can say is Oh!

The look is something that Sandra Oh pulls off stupendously. Only she, with her unique beauty could compliment a Korean style with such class. I really admire her work, and her choices.

I like the dress and I think Sandra is on a short list of people that could pull off a look like this – certainly not for everyone, but considering the occasion and whatnot, I admire her for wearing it well.

This is not the right look for Sandra. The dress overwhelms her petite frame. Whoever is dressing her did her a great disservice with this. It is a total miss.

Gorgeous! Gorgeous! Gorgeous! Sandra looks fantastic. Love that she went her own way and chose a designer that we haven’t heard of before! Way to support your culture!!
