A Cannes Film Festival red carpet is not complete without Roberto Cavalli.

Gong Li wore an aubergine strapless gown from the designers Couture collection which we usually see during Cannes or worn by Liz Hurley.

The Asian actress worked this stunning gown to perfection at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival Opening Ceremony.

I love the embellished bodice and the sweeping train.

Gong Li’s necklace was a tad overkill considering the exquisite detail on the bodice of her gown, she should have only added her Louis Vuitton earrings and ring from the L’Ame du Voyage and Les Eclatantes collections.

Plus Chopard.
