We Love Her Dresses…How To Dress Like Gemma Chan


If you know Gemma Chan, you probably know a thing or two about her dress style. Whether it’s a red carpet gown or a movie premiere mini, the actress knows just how to wow her audience with every look. Personally, I just so happen to love classics, and coincidentally, Gemma happens to wear all-things classic and elegant. From Oscar de la Renta to Giambattista Valli, you’ll find just what you need to get her style in this edit.

Voluminous gowns, chic halter tops, and body-hugging appliqués—I’m head-over-heels for every dress. Not many celebrities catch my attention when it comes to their wardrobe. However, Gemma Chan has certainly beat the long list. With stunning options like these to choose from, I might just have to bookmark her feed in my phone.

Gemma Chan's Favorite: Floor-Sweeping Gowns


If you’re here for the red carpet side of Gemma Chan’s dress style, you’ve come to right place. If there’s any look I love to see on the fashion icon, it’s a floor-sweeping gown. And by the looks of it, she loves them too. The Giambattista Valli appliqués gown is one I’d imagine she already has hung in her closet. Specifically, the brand is the best at making giant floral embellishments elegant—all with a rich color. Plus, royal pieces style well with accessories like the Aquazzura Paris Rose sandals and Loeffler Randall Rayne organza clutch. In addition, black bags and shoes always make the best styling companions.


On a lighter note, the Oscar de la Renta Gardenia guipure dress isn’t a dress to miss. If you haven’t noticed, Gemma is a lace lover—with many owns covered in metallic, white, and sequin lace patterns. So, if you also love the look, you don’t want to skip over this gem. Oscar de la Renta is the best at designing dresses, but when it comes to lace dresses, they’re magicians. I would just style it with the Amina Muaddi Kim pointed pumps and this Versace shoulder bag for a more simple take on the texture. Although, Gemma Chan’s dress style is all about going big or going home.

A Classic Take On Minis


If you’re inspired by Gemma Chan’s dress style, wait until you see the minis. While the fashionista is quite the floor sweeper, she does also have some pretty memorable short looks, too. In fact, the Lovers + Friends Cosette mini dress is a great example of this. Simple, yet flattering, this dress is ideal for a range of occasions. Paired with these Tony Bianco heels and Jimmy Choo Bonny crystal mesh clutch, you can never go wrong. Like little black dresses, white dresses are just as timeless and stylish.


For a more vibrant approach, I’m also loving the Superdown Zoe mini dress. Although I’m not much of a green kind of gal, this number rubbed off on me. Not only is it a statement piece, it’s also great for those sizzling hot summer days you want to feel cool and fashion-forward. Plus, bright colors like these style well with the Aquazzura Tequila metallic sandals and Cult Gaia Ozzy top handle bag. I’m always up for an excuse to buy flashy accessories.
