“Sophie’s Revenge” Press Conference

“Sophie’s Revenge” is a romantic comedy from first-time producer Zhang Ziyi which opens in Chinese cinemas on August 14.

This press conference was held during the Shanghai Film Festival.

Regular reader Davor made a comment that Asian women almost always wear big fashion names such as Valentino, Chanel, Versace, Louis Vuitton, and Christian Dior to events.

Well at this event there was a Louis Vuitton look but everyone else wore a designer outside of those big names.

Chen Yao opted for a feathered Louis Vuitton Spring 2009 top with a bronze mini skirt and Spicy heels.

Ziyi Zhang took some time off wearing Giorgio Armani to wear a bow front Moschino Spring 2009 floral dress which she belted.

Fan Bing bing wore an asymmetrical Salvatore Ferragamo Spring 2009 maxi dress with a leopard print which was modified from the runway.

My new girl crush Taiwanese actress Ruby Lin opted for a white and red circle print sleeveless Moschino Cheap & Chic Spring 2008 dress with a ruched skirt, plus red Christian Louboutin pumps.

You may remember that Dita von Teese has also wore this dress recently to the Coachella Music Festival.

All the ladies look really fabulous here, and I’m really glad to see them mix things up a little.

    Zhang Ziyi actually manages to make this Moschino dress beautiful. I don’t like the runway version at all.
    and also Zhang Ziyi looks really great with bangs :)

    NOO NOO. As much as I love you and your posts. Ruby Lin is Taiwanese not Chinese!

    I really love that Salvatore Ferragamo dress ! But runaway version is better, it’s more eye-catching.

    What a great ensemble. They all look fantastic, and I absolutly love Zhang Ziyi’s dress, she looks amazing in it.

    I almost didn’t recognise Zhang ZiYi with the fringe! They all look great, I hope you keep an eye out for more Ruby Lin appearances in the future, I’d like to see more of her :)

    FC, I love when you show us those events in Asian. Maybe it’s a cultural thing, but I think that in Asia people do know that a red carpet event is not a barbecue with friends and they really try their best to look nice. Even the man.

    They ALL look great here. Including the guys. I love Asians. They always deliver.
