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 liked it – I thought she looked really pretty in it – and I especially liked the bow.

I liked the dress! But what I liked better was she made it a point to represent her culture and heritage. She stated that the dress was based on a traditional Korean dress made by a local Korean designer. Good for you Sandra Oh!!!

While I think that the dress is a tad too large for her, and would be better on a woman with a larger frame or if it was cut a bit so that it didn’t swallow her, I really like the contrasting colors. I think that it was amazing of her to decide to reflect her cultural roots through her dress and also try to promote an unknown designer and am sure there will be more of this in the future :)

I don’t like the dress. If her hair and makeup were done differently, it might have helped. That dress needs all of the help it can get!

I really don’t like it, it looks hideous. The dress doesn’t do a thing for her and she usually makes smart choices.
