For her gown, the Chinese actress looked back a few seasons to designer Raf Simons’ Christian Dior Fall 2012 Couture collection.
I can’t help but love the glamour of this ‘New Look’-inspired silhouette, what with its cinched bodice and classic full skirt. The dress’s painterly tie-dye effect in shades of grassy green and lime only increased the drama and made this look particularly electric.
But with the addition of the fur shrug, a diamond necklace and earrings, and a Fendi handbag, not to mention those towering Christian Louboutin pumps, I found myself experiencing sensory overload.
The dress and its statement print speaks for itself without the clutter (beautiful clutter as it were) of the abundant accessories.
At least Zhang slicked her hair into a chic updo and opted for a soft pink pout instead of the runway’s neon hues. Anything else would have been far too much.
If you’re having a slight déjà vu moment as I did, it’s because Jennifer Lawrence wore a very similar gown from Dior’s Fall 2012 offering last September, except in a different, inky colour variation.
