Oh, how beautiful!

Sandra Oh

You’re a Grey’s Anatomy fan. Fact. And here’s the thing; considering that you’re a nurse, reading a blog written by someone (yours truly!) employed by a medical scrubs company, you know good and well that the aforementioned statement has more than one meaning. That’s right. I’m not simply referring to the top of the line scrubs brand, but to the long running TV show as well! And here’s a personal question for you. Who was or is your favorite Grey’s character?? I’ll only tell if you do. Hint: She’s played by someone who both hosted and made history at the Golden Globes this month. Annnnnd, we have a winner! Cristina Yang, played by the one and only Sandra Oh is my all-time Grey’s fave. She will always have a special place in my heart and I’m of the opinion that the show has never been the same since her exit. Onward, though…

Whether on Grey’s or elsewhere, Sandra Oh has proven herself to be a queen time and time again. At the 2019 Golden Globes in particular, she made history three times over as the first person of Asian descent to host the Globes, the first woman of Asian descent to win multiple Golden Globes, and the first woman of Asian descent in 39 years to win a Golden Globe for best actress in a TV drama. That being said, Oh not only did a spectacular job hosting alongside Andy Samberg this year, but also took home the highly coveted title of Best Actress in a TV Drama for her role in Killing Eve. And she did it all in not one, but 3 incredible looks! But I’m here to talk about the first😊

Elizabeth Saltzman was the amazing stylist behind all of Sandra Oh’s looks for the evening. She describes Oh as a strong, smart, empowered, sophisticated woman. In short, she is the manifestation of beauty and brains. And as an ode to all that Oh is, Saltzman pulled all of Oh’s looks from female designers, and the first one in particular from Donatella Versace. Sandra walked the red carpet in a stunning white column gown with an asymmetric neckline, ruche detailing and a slight hint of pale pink beading. She accessorized with ethically sourced Forevermark diamonds, and an Old Hollywood, side swept hair-do along with a bold, red lip, completed her gorgeous look.

There’s a scrub top we sell on our website that reminds me of Sandra’s red carpet look. I truly wish I can say it’s from Grey’s Anatomy. In fact, I even refreshed the page, closed my eyes, then peeked through a slit in my right eye to see if maaaybe it actually did belong; to the Grey’s collection, as that would have completely wrapped up my piece with a nice, neat bow. But alas; it’s definitely not Grey’s:( In any case, this top I’m referencing is by Cherokee Luxe, and it’s the Crossover Shaped v-neck scrub top in white, obviously. I love that it’s super slenderizing in similar style to Sandra’s column gown, and that it boasts an almost identical asymmetrical neckline. In lieu of ruching there are 2 pintucks with mock button detailing that gives it that extra oomph just like the beading on the Versace number. How perfect? Pair with your favorite white scrub pants, swipe on a red lip and be sure to let everyone know that you’ll be taking home the award for Best Nurse on Unit! Here’s to winning!
