Yao Chen attended the Sina Microblogging event in Beijing on Wednesday evening.

The actress wore a standout Prabal Gurung Spring 2012 cocktail dress, paired with silver Miu Miu pumps.

This surreal floral-print silk georgette embroidered dress has an exposed back plus exploding tulle petals, French knots, plastic and embroidered hand-painted latex razor paillettes.

Somehow, Yao manages to make all that detail completely elegant, and almost – dare we say – simple.

While the runway version adds a bit more shape and toughness to the dress with a corset-esque black leather belt and matching black shoes, Yao keeps her look ladylike with a slick bun and large white clutch.
