Tan Sri Michelle Yeoh turned heads on the red carpet at this year's Met Gala. The Malaysian actress wore a black-and-white gown with oversized, puffed sleeves – the designer is currently unidentified.

This is not Yeoh's first time attending the Met Gala though. Last year, she wore a striking emerald green gown by Prabal Gurung.

She is the first actress of Asian descent to win in the "Best Actress" category in the Academy's 95-year history. She's also the first Malaysian to be nominated and win in the Academy Awards.

Yeoh has also been seen actively making her rounds within the fashion circuit since last year. She has been spotted at runway shows by some of the biggest fashion houses – from Elie Saab to Balenciaga.

This year's Met Gala theme is "Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty", which pays tribute to the late designer's legacy.
