We can’t believe we missed seeing Carina Lau’s full outfit at the China-inspired Met Ball 2015, from earlier this month. (Wait, we take that back. It’s totally possible, when you have Rihanna in an omelette-like dress.)
But thanks to these newly released photos from Paris-based fashion house Schiaparelli, now everyone gets to see the full red carpet look on the Hong Kong actress.

Just so you know, the star wore a haute couture — basically, made just for her! — silk satin dress from Schiaparelli, paired with a clutch and shoes from Roger Vivier.
And truly, it’s a dress you’ll want to see from every angle. In the spirit of the brand’s surreal, off-kilter personality, Carina Lau’s red carpet look features details like asymmetrical bolero sleeves and a sequined train at the back.
This red carpet appearance also makes Carina Lau the first Asian celebrity to be seen in haute couture from Schiaparelli; the French fashion house was recently revived in 2014 and is now led by former Valentino designer Bertrand Guyon as its creative director.

We do not kid or exaggerate when we say it looks like an omelette; here are the 6 funny ways Rihanna’s dress looks super edible.
