Fan Bing Bing In Elie Saab Couture – 2011 Cannes Film Festival “My Way” Photocall

Fan Bing Bing can’t be getting much sleep because the actress attended at photocall for her new movie, “My Way” earlier today during the 2011 Cannes Film Festival.

This time the actress wore a volcanic red Elie Saab Fall 2011 gown.

The one shoulder gown sees her sporting a less dramatic style, which many of you don’t appreciate as much as I do.

No jewels, no updo, just a bright red asymmetrical gown and a gorgeous smile doing all the talking.

    I love her hair and makeup here. The runway version is dramatic so seeing this on her falls a bit short.. but she looks beautiful but the way she wore the dress wasn’t wowing me.

  2. Andy May 25, 2011 at 15:49 #

    The BEST look by far.

  3. pacco May 17, 2011 at 11:30 #

    Fan Bing Bing is the best!~!

    Very glad that she has finally decided to go with lighter makeup, in contrast to the whitish cake-d up look she usually sports. Refreshing change.

  5. chara May 16, 2011 at 23:44 #

    this is my fav look of her!! she should have more hairdos like this rather than those heavy ones. she looks like a godness

  6. CAROL May 16, 2011 at 21:57 #

    stunning stunning stunning
    Fan’s best look so far!

    I prefer to see lighter makeup and the way her hair down ~~

  9. Jennie May 16, 2011 at 12:02 #

    love the sleeve/shoulder modification. FBB and her stylist seem to have a way of making designs uniquely fitting for her. i really love this creative quality about their working relationship…

    also LOVE the hair, flawless skin, and subtle make-up. there is an almost timeless quality about this shot, the one where FBB is standing solo.

    oh and btw, the asian guy to her left… he is one of the hottest actors in korea. they look really good together. 😉

    overall very impressed with FBB’s presentation, style, and charming, feminine aura. this woman is on fire!

    thanks FC for introducing her to us… 🙂

    I think I have fallen in love with Fan Bing Bing. I see the comments saying the runway one is better, but both looks amazing to me. This has got to be the most delicious shade of red ever.

  11. gossip_bangkok May 16, 2011 at 10:59 #

    Beautiful. However, somehow, I love the runway look more, maybe because of the dynamic of the model’s stride?

  12. Maddie May 16, 2011 at 07:22 #

    I wish she’d worn this on the red carpet because there’s so much movement as seen by the model, and it falls a bit flat on Fan.
    Love how she wears couture to a photocall though.

  13. joe May 16, 2011 at 06:56 #

    FANtastic!!!! she is a vision!!!!!!

  14. Emi May 16, 2011 at 06:55 #

    Beautiful, and finally she looks young, because of the simple hair.

  15. KEN May 16, 2011 at 05:25 #

    my Goddess!

  16. KateS May 16, 2011 at 04:07 #

    I’m amazed this girl has any hair left, the number of extreme styles it’s been forced into this past week, but it looks cute down like this.
    The dress seems a bit much for the occasion – I would have liked to have seen it in motion on a runway rather than for a photocall – but she looks very young and pretty.

  17. asherlev1 May 16, 2011 at 03:46 #

    Lol I guess I don’t like the dramatic on her quite as much as you do, cos this is hands down my favorite look of hers. Effortlessly elegant. <3

  18. mochababe73 May 16, 2011 at 02:19 #

    Pretty color. Pretty dress. But it looks heavier than the runway version. Maybe hers has been modified with different fabrics.

  19. Sarah NZ May 16, 2011 at 01:58 #

    Sorry – not doing it for me. She should have worn the second sleeve properly. It looks a bit ragged lying on the bodice like that.

  20. Raquel May 16, 2011 at 00:59 #

    Stunning. Love the loose hair, which is less severe than some hairdos she wore before.

    And can I say that this is the most perfect shade of red ever?

  21. Fromchi-town May 15, 2011 at 23:04 #

    When I saw her, I just said wow. She looks really sweet with her hair down.

    FC, I was working today, and did not check the site all day. Came back home and went thru all your posts and it was such a treat. Thanks fc, fabulous coverage as always – you spoil us totally! On an aside, is Eva Longoria not attending this year?

    • Fashion Critic May 15, 2011 at 23:09 #

      You are welcome.

      Glad to provide you with some visual entertainment after a long day at work.

      Eva should be at Cannes. Usually she is there by now.

      We still have 7 days left, so hopefully she will arrive soon.

      The L’Oreal girls tend to tag in and out.

      Beyonce should also be attending this year.

      • Fromchi-town May 15, 2011 at 23:19 #

        Beyonce! Will look forward to her too!

  22. Pablo May 15, 2011 at 22:25 #

    It’s just beyond words that she wore an Elie Saab Couture gown for the photocall. I couldn’t love her more for that 🙂

  23. sharmila May 15, 2011 at 22:21 #

    I perfer the model!
    the dress on the actress has no “body language”

    red is sexy color
    and she looks like a virgin to me
    The eyes should have been more smokey…and more heavier blush….and hair tied up!

    sry flop for her!

  24. June May 15, 2011 at 22:20 #

    So beautiful!

  25. Femme May 15, 2011 at 21:53 #

    LOVE it, she truly never disappoints

  26. couturecoco May 15, 2011 at 21:33 #

    Adore the colour of this dress on her. She looks so young and fresh here – definitely my favourite look for her so far. She probably took the same amount of time as always (lengthy!) but the end result is so much more attractive and natural rather than contrived and older – that’s the important difference, I believe.

    I like the lines of the dress but there’s too much fabric in the drape across the body which doesn’t lie properly compared to the runway version. Shame.

  27. Zarin May 15, 2011 at 21:32 #

    Now THIS looks good! My favourite look of hers so far.

  28. Sonia May 15, 2011 at 21:24 #

    That gown is gorgeous and so is she! Loves it!

  29. mattison May 15, 2011 at 21:14 #

    That dress looks dynamite on the runway and she manages to do it justice even standing still. Beautiful!

  30. Mahima May 15, 2011 at 21:08 #

    Wow, I really wish she wore it to a premiere just so we could see it move.
    Its a shame but still beautiful.

  31. Elle May 15, 2011 at 21:05 #

    She’s so beautiful! I especially love how she didn’t go out of her way to pose and let the world know the dress has a thigh-high slit…

    Just like Fan, I think you’re on a roll tonight, FC! 😀

    • Fashion Critic May 15, 2011 at 21:25 #

      thanks sweets xx 🙂

  32. Lina May 15, 2011 at 20:55 #

    wow, this must be one of my favourite looks from her! That dress is amazing, I’m glad she realised it needed no more. 🙂

  33. Lucía May 15, 2011 at 20:47 #

    Lovely 🙂 I love her more and more each time

  34. Gaber May 15, 2011 at 20:46 #

    Either she’s not selling it or the dress only works in movement.
    So plain compared to the runway picture.

    (Though, I do adore how a simple hairstyle change completely changes her.)

  35. justme May 15, 2011 at 20:45 #

    I love the dress the way it was presented on the runway. I feel like Bingbing is just drowning in fabric.

  36. Leen May 15, 2011 at 20:44 #

    This girl is so amazing! I’m drunk with her smile.

  37. aj May 15, 2011 at 20:43 #

    FBB is at her most beautiful with minimal makeup. Even without makeup she is drop dead gorgeous!

  38. Shopgirl May 15, 2011 at 20:40 #

    Elie saab is the king and she is the queen .. One word WOW.. The red suit her aloooooot

    • eva May 15, 2011 at 22:17 #

      Bravo!They work perfectly with each other!This is kinda one of my favorates… It really knocks me out with this carefree look and hairs down…

  39. Lee Ann May 15, 2011 at 20:38 #

    I think this dress needs movement because stationary she looks like she is going to a Toga party. I can’ help but be reminded of John Belushi

    • sonia May 15, 2011 at 21:19 #

      right! the runwa version looks amazing but it’s kind of “flat” on her!

      • astray heart May 16, 2011 at 10:18 #

        can’t agree with u more
        the runway version is breathtaking

  40. nora May 15, 2011 at 20:38 #

    just like what you said, for her that’s enough,gorgeous!

  41. Moxie May 15, 2011 at 20:37 #

    Hardly ever a miss on the red carpet. I always look forward to seeing what she’ll wear next.

  42. Renee May 15, 2011 at 20:35 #

    love it best!!!

  43. Wendy May 15, 2011 at 20:33 #

    I love it when she wears her hair down! Personally, I think it is the best look of her Cannes visit so far!

    • Renee May 15, 2011 at 20:49 #

      totally agreed!

      • mol May 15, 2011 at 21:05 #

        Ditto, radiant simplicity – gorgeous!

        • Martin May 16, 2011 at 05:45 #

          I’m in total agreement as well. There is a looseness and a carefree quality to Fan Bing Bing here that I absolutely adore. The Versace gown brought the drama, but her naturalness here totally sells this look for me. Love it.

    • patricia May 17, 2011 at 11:29 #

      cant agree more!!! i am her fan!!! So Proud of Fan!!!

  44. y May 15, 2011 at 20:31 #

    oh its here, brilliant! actually i love this more than her other looks – effortless natural elegance.

    • juliet May 15, 2011 at 21:21 #

      Can’t agree more.

      • Cindy May 17, 2011 at 03:12 #


  45. amu May 15, 2011 at 20:29 #

    another knock out look 🙂 this girl is on a roll.. such gorgeous looks each time… its official.. i m her fan now 🙂

  46. Wanda May 15, 2011 at 20:28 #

    Wow! Totally speechless.

    • -N May 15, 2011 at 21:21 #

      my reaction EXACTLY! .. i would’ve styled the hair differently though 🙂

  47. Hisadora May 15, 2011 at 20:26 #

    OMG I can’t picture my favorite look from her… she ALWAYS looks FAN-tastic!

    • Fashion Critic May 15, 2011 at 20:47 #

      LOL..Pun intended 🙂
