This, my dears, is the ONLY gown I had to see at this 2011 Cannes Film Festival.

Of course it was the Queen of Cannes 2011 who graced the red carpet wearing it.

The Queen is Fan Bing Bing and the gown is of course Atelier Versace.

I’ll admit I did picture this gown on Penelope Cruz, but it’s breath-taking on Fan.

Someone strangely said it always looks like Fan took hours to get ready, well I would hope so otherwise it would mean she was not human.

Her ombre violet to light pink strapless Atelier Versace Spring 2011 gown was made of hand brushed chiffon ruffles.

She teamed her gown with a Versace clutch and Cartier jewel.

Whilst this was always my must see Cannes gown, I’m glad its has been modified. I always pictured it without the high neckline which I’m sure many of you did as well.
