25 Iconic Gemma Chan Fashion Looks

The real star of every red carpet

When you think of celebrity fashion icons, who comes to mind? Rihanna? Harry Styles? Someone else?

While all those answers are great, there is one person that definitely comes to mind: actor, writer, activist and Marvel superhero Gemma Chan.

You may know her as Sersi van Eternals or Astrid Leong-Teo from Crazy Rich Asiansbut you should definitely recognize her for her iconic sense of style – both on the red carpet and off.
