Yao Chen joined Cate Blanchett on the red carpet this evening in Wellington, New Zealand for the world premiere of ‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey’.
The actress clearly didn’t want to go unnoticed on the red carpet, so she donned a beautiful Georges Hobeika Fall 2012 Couture ball gown.
This stunning look fills the void left by Zhang Ziyi, who used to be our go-to gal for pretty ball gowns.
Yao’s powder-blue tulle strapless ball gown with velvet touches and intricate embroidery details on the skirt gave me chills.
I’m typing covered in goosebumps as you know I live for a princess moment.
A small Kotur clutch, a half-up, half-down hairstyle and Bulgari drop earrings completed her BDOTW-worthy look.
I’m at a loss for words as to how spectacular this gown is.
Take a look at the close up to see Yao is sporting cute Elf ears.
