Constance Wu has quickly become a sartorial icon. After wearing some of our favorite looks—a beautiful nude gown at the Golden Globes, a plunging neck sparkly ensemble at the Critic’s Choice Awards and a pink and peach tie-dye dress at the Isn’t It Romantic premiere (just to name a few)—we knew Constance Wu’s 2019 Oscars look would be phenomenal. The star of Crazy Rich Asians wore a stunning, golden-yellow ball gown on the Academy Awards red carpet, and we’re positively giddy.
The actress arrived at the 2019 Oscars looking absolutely beautiful in a tulle Versace ball gown fit for a queen—or princess (is anyone else getting serious Beauty and the Beast vibes?). It’s like Constance Wu knew exactly what her audience wanted to see, and she delivered. While tulle anything is bound to stun on the red carpet, the details on Wu’s gown—namely, the fluttery, gem-lined off-the-shoulder neckline—further elevated her ensemble. And the fact that Wu’s Oscars dress was rendered in marigold yellow, one of 2019’s trendiest tones? Don’t even get us started. Let’s give a round of applause for Constance Wu, queen of our universe—and absolute style icon.
As if the endlessly glamorous gown wasn’t enough, Wu took things to yet another level of incredible with a chic, perfectly coiffed ponytail. She accented her look with red nails, understated makeup and classic diamond jewelry. (We’re basically imploding at the amount of chic style she brought to the table.)
While Contance Wu is, sadly, not nominated for her work in Crazy Rich Asians—I mean, talk about a serious snub—she joins co-star Awkwafina as a presenter for the evening. Inviting the actress to present is the least they could do, after Crazy Rich Asians was given zero Oscar noms. It’s upsetting, of course, but at least we still get to appreciate Constance Wu and all her style glory.
