Fan Bingbing opened up her 2012 Cannes Film Festival account in typical traditional fashion this evening at the opening ceremony.

She glided down the red carpet like an elegant swan wearing an ivory embroidered Christopher Bu strapless gown.

The green accents on her gown were complemented with emerald Chopard jewels and a green-and-gold Elie Saab clutch.

An orangey-red lip colour and a traditional hairstyle completed her look.

Thanks to those who shared that Fan’s hair is a symbol of the Tang dynasty’s noble women and the gown has embroideries which tells the stories of the four beauties of ancient China.
