Tan Sri Michelle Yeoh (pic) is a vision in white in Dior Couture at the Oscars as she arrived to the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles for the 95th Academy Awards, with her date for the night, partner Jean Todt.
On the champagne-coloured carpet, Yeoh spoke to pre-show host Vanessa Hudgens on how she's feeling as a first time nominee.
"I actually feel very at peace right now. Because we're at the finish line ... and I think everyone should just enjoy themselves because we're here," Yeoh, 60, said.
She is nominated for Best Actress for her performance in the indie flick Everything Everywhere All At Once. If Yeoh wins, she will be the first actress of Asian descent to clinch the award in the Academy's 95-year history.
Yeoh also told Hudgens why she took on the role of Evelyn Wang, a harassed wife and mother who has the ability to travel through multiverses in the movie directed by The Daniels.
"All our mothers are sometimes so overlooked. And this was the perfect opportunity to show that mums are superheroes. They have the superpowers of love and kindness and compassion. And it was time that we gave this voice to all mothers and let them fly to the skies like superheroes," the Ipoh-born star said.
