Sarah Michelle Gellar made a regal entrance on the red carpet at the 2022 People’s Choice Awards tonight.
While arriving at Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, Calif. for the occasion, the “Wolf Pack” star posed in a romantic black velvet dress from Oscar de la Renta. Hailing from the brand’s fall 2022 collection by Laura Kim and Fernando Garcia, Gellar’s bodycon ensemble featured a midi length with a curved neckline and dramatic leg-of-mutton long sleeves. Giving her ensemble a formal finish were geometric rows of embroidered teardrop-shaped crystals, creating a bejeweled effect.
Glimmering drop earrings and rings finished Gellar’s ensemble, as well as a pale pink satin clutch — similarly covered in crystals and topped with a large pink pearl clasp.
When it came to footwear, Gellar slipped into a set of sharp black pumps. The “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” star’s satin pair included triangular toes and closed counters. Stiletto heels totaling at least 4 inches in height finished the classic style, giving Gellar a sharp height boost while remaining timeless and elegant.
