Sandra Oh wore exclusively female designers to host Golden Globes

Sandra Oh wore dresses created exclusively by female designers to host the 2019 Golden Globes.

The Killing Eve star co-presented the awards ceremony alongside Brooklyn Nine-Nine star Andy Samberg, and donned a wardrobe of stunning gowns for the occasion.

And when it came to choosing outfits for Sandra to wear, her stylist Elizabeth Saltzman had a special reason for turning only to female designers.

“I think the talent is so big with Sandra and Andy,” she explained to The Hollywood Reporter. “It doesn’t need to be about a costume. It needs to be about them. She needs to feel comfortable. She has a lot to do. The only thing I don’t want her to think about is her clothing.

“I decided to think of things that would make her feel confident and empowered and beautiful.”

Among the “strong, female designers” Elizabeth looked to was Stella McCartney and Donatella Versace, who created two custom looks for the ex-Grey’s Anatomy star. In addition to the white column dress Sandra sported for the red carpet, Donatella manufactured an eye-catching red tuxedo-style dress for the actress to wear to open the awards ceremony.

Reflecting on why she asked Donatella to help, Elizabeth added to the publication: “I don’t know a more fearless, bold person who works harder than Donatella. Donatella really gives. She’s super empowering, and super fun, and has been through stuff.”

The resulting ensembles were praised by fashion fans, and were clearly enjoyed by Sandra herself.

“I feel great right now because Sandra doesn’t have to think and she is so happy with her clothes,” she smiled. “She feels great and you can just tell.”
