If the L’Oreal memo said ‘Big Couture Gown Night’, everyone got the message.

Li Bing Bing (no relation to Fan) wore a Georges Chakra Spring 2011 Couture gown on the red carpet for the 2011 Cannes Film Festival “The Artist” Premiere this evening.

I always thought this gown had a Princess Leia vibe to it when I saw it presented back in January; so I find it adorable that the Asian actress styled her hair accordingly.

I love that she opted for this big gown, but didn’t pile it high with jewels as the gown sparkles plenty on its own.

She clearly didn’t travel all that way to go unnoticed or upstaged by the other stars on this red carpet, and I admire her for that.
