Fan Bing Bing was also present for the opening night of the First Beijing International Film Festival.

She took a surprisingly sombre turn on the red carpet, donning this long-sleeved black dress from Tadashi Shoji’s Fall 2011 collection.

The actress wore her hair slicked back into a high ponytail and kept her makeup light, save for a slick of winged black eyeliner.

She carried a mini gold clutch and added a pair of patent leather platform heels.

Unfortunately I don’t think this is such a good look for Fan.

The dress definitely needed some exciting accessories to bring it to life.

Whilst she’s wearing a gold cuff and a square cocktail ring, I wish she would have chosen an amazing statement necklace instead – like the way the dress was presented on the runway.

This may have changed this look completely.

Some of you guys asked her to tone things down, but I think she took it a step too far.
