Mini-Dress Clad Pianist, Yuja Wang, Wows Hollywood Bowl, Sparks Debate!

The Los Angeles Philharmonic enforces a strict, specific dress code for orchestra members, including several codes depending on time of day and season. However, these dress codes do not apply to soloists.

“For women that’s traditionally an evening gown,” said an L.A. Phil representative, “but that’s not always the case.”

“Considering how well she plays, if she were a man, we would not even be having this conversation.”

This was exactly not the case when 24-year-old pianist Yuja Wang took to the Hollywood Bowl stage earlier this month. Clad in an “orange, thigh-grazing, body-hugging dress atop sparkly gold strappy stiletto sandals,” Wang apparently had “necks craning, tongues wagging and flashbulbs popping,” according to LA Times.
