This time last year we had just been officially introduced to the wonderful Fan Bing Bing.

The Asian beauty opted to wear a traditional robe to the Opening Ceremony of the 2011 Cannes Film Festival like she did last year.

Her red gown was embroidered with white cranes with a bow detail on the bodice.

The gown was designed by her stylist – Chris Bu Kewen.

I don’t think Fan Bing Bing knows subtle, which is why I love her.

This dramatic red gown was paired with a high bouffant, stunning Cartier jewels and a pearl embellished clutch.

Hopefully Fan is at Cannes for the duration as I can’t wait to see what else she gives us.
