Zhang Ziyi In Marc Bouwer Couture – New York Chinese Film Festival

Zhang Ziyi attended the New York Chinese Film Festival, at the Alice Tully Hall in New York City yesterday evening looking as stunning as ever.

The Asian star, who was presented with the ‘Most Outstanding Asian Artist Award’ at the event, wore another Marc Bouwer gown, this time from the designer’s Fall 2012 Couture collection.

Her navy velvet cap-sleeved gown with gathered detailing and a plunging neckline couldn’t be more season appropriate.

She dazzled the crowds with stunning Bulgari jewels and a gold satin Bulgari clutch from the Serpenti collection.

A simple ponytail and a beautiful smile completed her look.

I think this is a BDOTW contender. Do you agree?

    BDOTW “contender”? Winner! Not sure how this should be topped…

  6. EmmaWoodhouse October 19, 2012 at 14:50 #

    Ok, that’s it. I’ve found my BDOTW. This is gorgeous, stunning, absolute perfection. This is velvet done right–blue done right–everything done right! She is going on my BDOTY-list!!!!!!!! (And even though I’m not usually a plunging neckline fan, this one is done very tastefully and is not overly revealing). I WOULDN’T CHANGE A THING!!!!!!! (Dies from sartorial happiness)

    Def. BDOTW worthy!

  8. dee October 19, 2012 at 13:25 #

    I for one love velvet. It looks so rich and luxurious. She looks like a princess. I love it.

  9. wangyu October 19, 2012 at 11:58 #

  14. lin October 19, 2012 at 09:56 #

    Think Kate Middleton would look super in this.

  15. Mol October 19, 2012 at 09:30 #

    I love the design of this gown and the use of velvet really makes the color look rich and full of depth. Perfect execution in the styling department so a definite contender for BDOTW, yes indeed!

  16. Cathy October 19, 2012 at 08:03 #

    So stunning, definitely a BDOTY contender for me!

  17. Noemi October 19, 2012 at 07:37 #

    I couldn’t agree more, this gown is one of the most beautiful I’ve seen recently. The jewelry is gorgeous, the clutch perfect and I like the simple make up and hair.

  18. TL October 19, 2012 at 06:13 #

    Stunning! Definitely BDOTW, even BDOTY!

  19. jim October 19, 2012 at 05:41 #

    Wow! BDOTY, Definitely!

  20. robert October 19, 2012 at 04:44 #

    The rouching and velvet compliment each other like I would’ve never imagined. The color is divine and I especially love the dramatic shoulders. An automatic winner for BDOTW.

    However, I don’t like the necklace. It looks cheap.

  21. Lyo October 19, 2012 at 04:26 #

    I’ll have to say… WOW!
    Never tought velvet could be this great.
    And adding to the chorus, I think this is worth a BDOTY…

  22. Paulo October 19, 2012 at 03:25 #

    That shade of blue is just gorgeous! Love it on her!!!

  23. Saree October 19, 2012 at 03:08 #

    BDOTW? Umm yes!
    I’m getting a Kate Winslet vibe with this entire outfit.

  24. ash October 19, 2012 at 02:35 #

    She raises the bar for herself every time she steps on the red carpet.

  25. Jess2 October 19, 2012 at 02:08 #

    Absolutely BDOTW and BDOTY contender for me, for the second year in a row! Off the charts stunning and I am very picky about velvet!

  26. Christine October 19, 2012 at 02:06 #

    Stunning color but not BDOTW. Love the dress and the accessories though.

  27. bas October 19, 2012 at 01:38 #

    Simply gorgeous! BDOTW for sure!

  28. Andrea October 19, 2012 at 01:36 #

    This made me breathe in on opening your wonderful blog FC. Ab-so-lute-ly stunning. What woman wouldn’t give their eye teeth to look this good? The blue velvet is divine. It makes me wish winter was coming in Sydney, not summer!! BTW FC – thanks for your website. It’s my favourite way to start a long day in the office 🙂

    • Fashion Critic October 19, 2012 at 05:15 #

      I’m glad to hear that. That you so much for your comment x

  29. Elle October 19, 2012 at 01:34 #

    SIMPLY STUNNING. Everything is hitting her curves just right. Plus she looks 6 ft tall in this amazing blue.

  30. Rebecca Z October 19, 2012 at 01:24 #


  31. DivaDebbi (Beauty and Fashion Blog) October 19, 2012 at 01:07 #

    Im breathless! Absolutely FC! Spectacular.

  32. Kathy October 19, 2012 at 00:39 #

    Flawless! Accessories are perfect, color is perfect, hair and makeup are perfect. This is unlike me, but I can’t find a single fault with the look. BDOTW for certain.

  33. Yeliz October 19, 2012 at 00:06 #

    Yes, a BDOTW contender for sure.

  34. NooG October 19, 2012 at 00:01 #

    I used to think that velvet didn’t look good on anyone. Thanks for changing my mind Ms. Zhang. Like people before me, I agree that this is BDOTY worthy.

  35. Hermoine October 18, 2012 at 23:58 #

    I am in stunned silence. She looks incredible! Love the jewelry!

  36. Fiona October 18, 2012 at 23:56 #

    Absolutely BDOTW (even the Year contender). Love this in every way, stunning jewels and so elegant. Inspiring.

  37. daisy October 18, 2012 at 23:45 #

  38. Prudence October 18, 2012 at 23:29 #

    • Thais October 19, 2012 at 05:29 #

      + 1!
      Good Lord! This is simply perfect! The dress, the jewelry, the makeup, the hair … absolutely beautiful!
      She’s making me consider buying a velvet dress, and I live in Brazil!
      For me, it’s the best of the year, without a doubt!

  39. Rafael October 18, 2012 at 23:23 #

    Wow wow wow Speechless love everything about this look. PERFECTION personified

  40. mari October 18, 2012 at 23:12 #

    BDOTW, or maybe of the year

  41. Teleholic October 18, 2012 at 22:40 #

    Best Dressed of the Year for me… I can’t get over the beauty of the vintage-vibe. The perfect color that compliments her complexion. I’m in awe.

    • Hannah October 19, 2012 at 01:52 #

      I completely agree. I can get over enthusiastic about some looks, but to me this deserves to be nominated for BDOTY. I think that every part of this outfit works perfectly together and that she looks incredible in it. I find her hit and miss but this is beyond a hit. The only tiny thing that irks me, and it is minor, is that I really feel like I have seen that necklace before!

  42. TeaAtTwo October 18, 2012 at 22:32 #

    I love this stunning look so much I think it’s a contender for BDOTY list. The design, fit, colour and complementary accessories are all gorgeous.

    • CreoleLady October 18, 2012 at 23:14 #


  43. couturecoco October 18, 2012 at 22:32 #

    Sensational! They handled the velvet perfectly. I would definately made her face and lips much warmer and richer, more blush and rich red berry lips.

  44. Nat39 October 18, 2012 at 22:15 #

    Very beautiful, great colour and the way the fabric is gathered around her figure is giving her such an amazing silhouette, gorgeous jewels, loving the fresh makeup, BDOTW worthy.

  45. Aline October 18, 2012 at 22:09 #

    I’m not usually into velvet, but good Lord, this is just breathtaking! She looks amazing! I love the dress, the fabulous necklace, the hair… Definitely a BDOTW contender.

    • Martina October 18, 2012 at 22:46 #

      I completely agree with you! Velvet dresses usually look terrible but this one is amazing! I don’t think anyone can top this for BDOTW, I’m defnitely gonna vote for her 🙂

      • Moxie October 19, 2012 at 15:57 #


    • Rash October 19, 2012 at 08:58 #

      +1. Breathtaking!

  46. Linda October 18, 2012 at 22:08 #

    This dress makes me completely rethink velvet!

  47. sara October 18, 2012 at 22:00 #

    Agreed – gorgeous! I love the color of the dress and the beautifully done rouching. She looks amazing. I’m a little over the top so I MIGHT have done a darker lip, maybe red.
