Yao Chen In Valentino – Sohu Fashion Achievement Awards

Yao Chen In Valentino - Sohu Fashion Achievement Awards

Yao Chen joined a host of stars on the red carpet for the Sohu Fashion Achievement Awards held at China World Hotel Beijing in China on Tuesday evening.

The actress wore a Valentino Fall 2012 dress.

Her sleeveless nude dress, enriched with floral embroidery, was styled with a red shoulder bag, gold-spiked white Louboutin pumps, and Pomellato jewels.

Like Angelababy, who also attended this event, this gown is a rerun. You may remember that Keira Knightley owned this when she wore it back in June last year.

It doesn’t quite have that magical feel a second time around, plus I would’ve preferred a red clutch to a shoulder bag.

    This is one gorgeous gown. I think Yao looks as beautiful as Keira did, but I would’ve preferred a red clutch too.

    Keira really captured the true nature of this dress, it suited her persona perfectly and her styling was divine without any distracting accessories, loved her updo and a red leaf piece in her hair was a subtle complementary element. Yao’s red shoulder bag is an unnecessary distraction.

      I agree. You stated that very well.

      I agree as well!

    Keira definitely wore it best.

      Yes, Kiera still owns this look in my opinion. This dress should be retired.

    She pulled it off nicely. But the shoulder bag is a letdown. I’d prefer a clutch, too.

    It’s not just the bag, the shoes aren’t working either. The lack of the right accessories are killing this look.

    I think it looks better on Yao, maybe it’s cuz I think Yao’s image is better suited for the hippie look than Keira. But I also think the color is better on Yao.

    I don’t like the shoulder bag but I do think it suits the bohemian vibe of the dress.
