Tan Sri Michelle Yeoh made history when she won the "Best Actress" award at the 2023 Oscars. She is the first Malaysian to have done so.

Like the star she is, Yeoh shone during the night, wearing a haute couture design by French luxury fashion house Dior. It had a mesh illusion neckline, plus layers of soft, delicate feather fringe.

The star teased her fans on Instagram, posting up snaps of her ethereal outfit. She also tagged all the brands from her look.

She had on a Richard Mille watch on her wrist. Her jewellery came from Moussaieff Jewellers: a diamond necklace (worn as a headband) and dangling earrings.

Of course, everything that she wore fit a theme. It was white, clean, sleek and oh-so-chic.

Yeoh has been making headlines at this season's awards circuit, appearing in dazzling ensembles by top designers.

At the recent 2023 Screen Actors Guild Awards in February, she stepped out in a cool Schiaparelli haute couture design.

She rocked an Armani midnight blue getup for this year's Golden Globes.

She has also been a highlight at fashion weeks. Pictured among some of the most famous faces in the entertainment industry, she attended runway shows as a front-row guest.

From Elie Saab to Balenciaga, she is fast becoming the fashion industry's darling. In the past she has been the long-time face of luxury watchmaker Richard Mille.
