When it comes to red carpet fashion, Michelle Yeoh commands attention. As of late, she has been slaying red carpet after red carpet, stepping out in designs that lean toward classic Hollywood glamour, albeit, with a modern twist. That may come in the form of color, fabric, silhouette, or something else entirely. A former pageant queen who also performed her own stunts as an action film star, Yeoh's style embraces duality without allowing one element to overtake the other. It's what makes the veteran actress one of our favorite style stars to watch and imitate (or at least attempt to).
