So much shine, you may have to squint.

After literally and sartorially winning last year's Academy Awards, Michelle Yeoh is back on the storied red carpet with another breathtaking look. The Everything Everywhere All At Once star arrived at the 2024 Oscars in a dazzling Balenciaga gown after the actress was announced as an ambassador for the fashion house last year.

The breathtaking two-toned silver gown featured thousands of sequins, an asymmetrical one-shoulder design, a form-fitting silhouette, and an elegant train. She added a dash of drama to the look with a pair of chic over-the-elbow opera gloves and black satin heels. With her hair in a sophisticated low ponytail and an eye-catching pair of diamond drop earrings, she looked every inch of the glam Oscar-winning movie star.

Last year, Yeoh wore an angelic bridal white Dior gown with a sheer neckline and tulle train, which she accessorized with diamond Moussaieff high jewelry. Later in the evening, she changed into a shimmering multi-colored column dress with a rosette detail for the star-studded Vanity Fair after-party.

Although Yeoh was not nominated at the Oscars this year, the actress was tapped to present. She will most likely hand out the award for Best Actor, as she took home the trophy for Best Actress last year for her role in the aforementioned film (it has become a tradition for the previous year's winner to present to the other gender's category). Her historic win made her the first Asian woman to get the prestigious honor for lead actress. She delivered an emotional speech encouraging Asian children and women to never give up on their dreams.

"For all the little boys and girls who look like me watching tonight, this is a beacon of hope and possibilities," she told the audience. "This is proof—dream big—and dreams do come true. And ladies, don’t let anybody tell you you are ever past your prime. Never give up."
Elsewhere in the moving address, she gave her 84-year-old mom the sweetest shoutout. "I have to dedicate this to my mom, all the moms in the world, because they are really the superheroes," she continued. "And without them, none of us would be here tonight."
