"Gold Logie worthy." Lee Lin Chin's spectacular exit from SBS News.

For the last 30 years, TV journalist and fashion icon Lee Lin Chin graced our screens in various asymmetrical outfits while she read out the news.

After her shock announcement last week that she’d be presenting SBS News‘ nightly broadcast for the last time on Sunday, fans were bracing for a spectacular finish. And as predicted, Lee Lin marked the occasion with an outfit worthy of the moment.

Designed by Japanese avant-garde designer Yohji Yamamoto, Lee Lin’s black, plastic-fantastic number truly delivered.

Some called it a mourning gown, worthy of the sad day in Australia’s television history, while others saw it as the perfect testament to Lee Lin’s sartorial legacy.

Twitter reacted accordingly.
