Fan Bingbing In Marchesa – 2013 Oscars


Ripping her red-carpet confection straight from the Marchesa Fall 2013 runway of New York Fashion Week just days ago, Fan Bingbing made a bold entrance at the 2013 Academy Awards, hosted this evening at the Dolby Theatre in California.

It’s no surprise that designers Keren Craig and Georgina Chapman’s most recent collection has hit the Oscars. The romantically theatrical aura of creations like Fan’s fuchsia number certainly are worthy of a red carpet.

That said, I wasn’t totally on board with the Chinese actress’s interpretation of this architecturally extravagant gown, which was undoubtedly a challenge to fit into a limousine—or through a doorway.

It came rather close to overwhelming the petite star. And that black clutch, while lovely, was a harsh distraction.

But the Chopard jewels, in complementary shades of pink and magenta, were beautiful.

She finished the look with a structured high updo and a pink lippie.

    Fan looks sensational. This is the Oscars. You have to be over-the top at least a little……..or in this case a lot, but Ms. Fan is putting in work. I love it. She could lose the clutch though, but gorgeous nonetheless.

    I really like most of this look but I think a silver clutch would have been better than the black.

    Beautiful gown on a wrong person with wrong accessories, makeup, and hair!

    I was SO happy to see her there! And she did not disappoint! Love this entire look. The color is amazing!

    Oh! This was my best dressed.
    Love it.

  6. Jess February 25, 2013 at 20:30 #

    I think the pleats of Fan’s dress need stronger creases, as on the model. I know that’s not the most practical suggestion (how did she sit down?), but it would have made everything more structured at least.

    She looks ridiculous. Clearly trying to hard and the dress wears her here.

    Perfect perfect PERFECT!!

    Reminds me of the one Rihanna wore to the Time Gala. I wasn’t impressed then, and I am not impressed now.

  10. AN February 25, 2013 at 16:16 #

    Best dressed of the night among all the other Hollywood bores!

  11. Parvati February 25, 2013 at 16:05 #

    Besides being so overwhelming on her, this dress doesn’t impress me at all.

  12. dee February 25, 2013 at 14:06 #

    Too much dress on her.

    she ruined the look with the hair do and clutch…sigh! and to a certain extent that weird pink lip. i would have been happier if a softer approach to styling this gown would have been considered by fan bing bing who always does OTT.

  15. Kate February 25, 2013 at 04:57 #

    I love the colour! But I agree, I feel like the dress is a little overwhelming to her frame.

  16. Yeliz February 25, 2013 at 04:52 #

    She looks overwhelmed, does not pull this off as expected. That said, that colour is gorgeous and so is her hair and makeup.

  17. Andrianto February 25, 2013 at 04:41 #

    Love the drama and the color

  18. Moxie February 25, 2013 at 03:51 #

    Finally some drama! You can love her or you can hate her, but you can’t deny that she always brings the drama and is never boring.

    Love the color, although the dress is threatening to overwhelm her petite frame.

  19. MaddyEliza February 25, 2013 at 01:50 #

    I love it!! I was really hoping this gown would make an appearance at the Oscars!! The clutch is a bit stark but oh my goodness that dress. Stunning. 😀

  20. Elise February 25, 2013 at 01:39 #

    That clutch is distracting, ugly and ruins the look. Not a Fan’s fan anyway, and this look is not helping to change my mind

    It’s a little attention grabbing…

  22. MG February 25, 2013 at 01:26 #

    love it! such intese color and volume-perfect for Oscar!

  23. TL February 25, 2013 at 01:26 #

    Don’t like the huge bun hair and I don’t think she needs the clutch.

  24. Christine February 25, 2013 at 01:24 #

    A bit dramatic but the color is stunning. Was wondering why was she there?

    • MG February 25, 2013 at 03:05 #

      “the Chinese actress fan bingbing this year by Hollywood famous producer Bill Mechanic invitation, will go to the scene for the first time attending Oscar ceremony, and at the same time will also discuss some work”

  25. Ramsay February 25, 2013 at 01:24 #

    Over the top as expected – this woman craves attention…

    • Amanda February 25, 2013 at 05:14 #


    • Rashmi February 25, 2013 at 09:21 #

      I never felt it before, but this one screams attention even with the beautiful dress. Maybe if she had kept the rest of the look simple, I would have loved it and also be in my best dressed list.

    • Chi February 25, 2013 at 10:12 #

      my thoughts exactly…

  26. ash February 25, 2013 at 01:21 #

    I don’t mind the bag at all, I thought it matched her hair, strict and black. The dress is a little overwhelming though. This is the place to whip out your Elie Saab dresses, Fan Bing Bing!!

  27. EmmaWoodhouse February 25, 2013 at 01:20 #

    My jaw actually dropped when I saw this! FINALLY some color!!! I love the voluminous rose colored skirt of this gown, and her black clutch works cause it actually goes with her hair! Love this look–it is fun, bright, and dramatic in a way that this neutral-heavy red carpet is slightly lacking!

  28. justme February 25, 2013 at 01:20 #

    The clutch is an eyesore and that’s a lot of fabric.
    I usually like her style but this is a miss.

  29. TeaAtTwo February 25, 2013 at 01:19 #

    I disagree, she brought the drama!

  30. Alen February 25, 2013 at 01:16 #

    She is always perfect.

    • Francois Bresmal March 1, 2013 at 21:39 #

      Yes I don’t agree with FC for once and GOD THANK YOU FAN TO MAKE MY DREAM COME TRUE I WANTED to see this dress at the Oscars
