Carina Lau In Valentino Couture – 2013 Hong Kong Film Awards

Carina Lau In Valentino Couture - 2013 Hong Kong Film Awards

Carina Lau wore red on the red carpet of the 2013 Hong Kong Film Awards on Saturday.

The actress wore a Valentino Couture Fall 2012 gown and carried a transparent Valentino ‘Mimetic’ minaudière.

Accompanying her husband Tony Leung Chiu Wai, who was nominated in the Best Actor category, Carina went for a simple “plus one” look versus a show-stopper, and I’m not crazy about it.

The combination of the heavy fabric and the fact that everything is so covered up makes this look like a coat rather than a dress to me.

Even the slightly shorter sleeve on the model gives this a little bit more interest than what we see on Carina.

What do you think–a solid, red carpet choice or just a little too dowdy?

    I love red and long sleeves, but the heavy stiff fabric and constrictive silhoutte (ugh, visible seams!) really brings this down. It’s still elegant, but not very appealing.

    A bit too stiff and coat-like and slighlty on the dowdy side, but not that bad at all overall – it’s all about the simple silhouette in a striking colour, her styling is elegant and doesn’t overwhelm the look, and she is carrying it off with poise.

    I think she looks regal and elegant. I really like this.

    Not a good look. The material is off putting.

    Too dowdy. I love a good red dress, but this is too much red.
