22nd Tokyo International Film Festival Opening Ceremony

You have to admire Rinko Kikuchi, as she always keeps things interesting on the red carpet.

The actress opted for a head-to-toe Sophia Kokosalaki Fall 2009 runway look which is ever so slightly modified.

The gold strappy dress with a black skirt, is gathered and embellished with silver panels.

What I love most about this look are Rinko boots.

She looks like a warrior, on her way to battle.

A much as I love Zoe Saldana and her Giambattista Valli Spring 2010 orange floaty mini dress, it doesn’t feel quite grand enough for a Film Festival opening ceremony.

Her previous look would at the “Avatar” stage greeting would have been preferred.

The shoes are also killing me.*yikes*

Sigourney Weaver has the tendency to drop some stink bombs on the red carpet, but she comes up smelling of roses on this occasion wearing a petrol blue satin off-the-shoulder gown.

Japanese actresses Tae Kimura, Ryoko Hirosue and Miki Nakatani walked the red carpet together, each wearing red dresses in various styles, shades and textures.

Ryoko in the middle opted for a strapless silk chiffon Derek Lam dress with frayed ruffles at the ruched bodice, which she paired with champagne coloured heels.

Tae’s red strappy gown is very elegant in it’s simplicity, and Miki strapless velvet gown is divine.

I always wondered that if this Chloe Fall 2009 halter nude dress was worn on the red carpet, if the wearer would be tempted to belt it.

Japanese actress Rie Miyazawa didn’t, she kept the dress loose and floaty.

I love the ruffled collar on this dress.

    I’m glad Rie Miyazawa kept her Chloe unbelted, the whole point of the dress seems to be that it flow in an unbroken line from its gathered, ruffled collar. Don”t really like Zoe in her Giambattista Valli, I love the color and I don’t know what it is – it just seems to hang on her. The Sophia Kokosalaki look on the runway is interesting but, IMO, it looks ridiculous on Rinko – the proportions are all wrong on her.

      You’re so right.

      I had a feeling I had seen it before. It’s Pre-Fall
