The Rome Film Festival came alive again last night as Zhang Ziyi graced the red carpet for the ‘Love for Life’ premiere.

I have goosebumps as I’m writing this; Zhang is beyond breathtaking in her Christian Dior Resort 2011 gown.

Her baby-blue strapless embroidered gown with a matching ribbon tied to the waist will no doubt make many BDOTY lists.

Zhang kinda fell off the radar for a while, but this is a surefire way to signal to everyone that she’s back.

A darker-blue embellished Swarovski clutch was teamed with ivory Swarovski drop earrings and a Swarovski diamond-encrusted bracelet.

I think the bracelet was one accessory too many for this look, but I’m just thankful that she didn’t add a necklace.

A simple bun and a dewy glow completed her look.

Earlier in the day Zhang wore a Christian Dior Resort 2012 brown spotted dress for the photocall.

I’m just going to pretend this never happened. It must have been a prerequisite in order to get the pretty Dior gown.
