Jing Tian In Christophe Josse Couture – 3rd Beijing International Film Festival

Jing Tian In Christophe Josse Couture - 3rd Beijing International Film Festival

Jing Tian attended the closing ceremony for the 3rd Beijing International Film Festival held at the China National Convention Center in Beijing, China yesterday evening.

I was delighted that she decided to wear a look from Christophe Josse’s Spring 2013 Couture collection.

The French designer is highly underrated. I would love to see more of his exquisite pieces on the red carpet, hopefully this will be the start of more to come.

Tian wore a beautiful black embellished tea-length dress with a fully beaded contrasting collar.

Her prim-and-proper look was sadly let down by those hideous Giuesppe Zanotti platform peep-toes. I also wish she opted to wear the belt as styled on the runway.

With the exclusion of Lin Peng, this was a very well-dressed event.

    I haven’t heard of this designer before, but I like the Valentino-meets-Reem-Acra aesthetic of the dress. The shoes are awful and unfortunately bring down the look.

    I’m not a big fan of the ‘school-girly’ collar details, but this design is quite adorable and is working somehow, and I think she is the right person for it, I just also wish she’d kept the belt, opted for a better non-heavy shoe and a neat ‘do/bun.

    I think she looks very pretty and, despite less than perfect styling, is wearing this unusual dress well.

    I have been so happy to see that horse-hoof platforms are finally going out of fashion. But the Asian ladies, whose style I usually love so much, seem reluctant to give them up!

      It’s such a shame that they refuse to give up the ridiculous platforms because they spoil all their beautiful outfits

      I wonder if these very petite Asian actresses hang on to the platforms because they give them height. Her dress would be on the floor without those shoes.

    This dress is so Audrey Hepburn. Very nice. Unfortunately, it’s too long and too large for Jing Tian.

    I dislike the shoes and the length of the dress and she should’ve worn a belt.

    I am not crazy how this looks on her. It looks gorgeous on the model.

    Loving it on the runway, the sandals are such a quirky choice (not just in comparison to the platform peep toes, sigh).

    She killed that dress with her stripper shoes. Honestly who had this terrible idea? I also miss the belt

    This is a very sweet dress on her, but it has a better silhouette on the model. The belt would have given more definition at the waist. The heavy black shoes certainly detract from her overall look. Something much more delicate is required, maybe in silver too instead of black.

    I agree about the shoes and the lack of belt but I still find this look charming from the ankles up.

    I like this dress. so beautiful.

  12. Catherine April 25, 2013 at 03:08 #

    What a beautiful dress!!

    I must need expand my cultural landscape, because I am forever baffled as to whom all of these endless posts of asian actresses are.

    She looks beautiful, but part of the appeal of seeing a gown on a red carpet (for me, at least) is identifying the way it relates to the person who is wearing it; how it enhances (or sometimes conflicts with) their persona. So, for me, the entire coverage of the Beijing Film Festival has been a viewing of the dresses from a completely impersonal, uninvested manner. This makes it difficult for me to really get behind a look and feel impassioned by it.

    However, I’m sure that many of the readers of this blog feel differently and appreciate the time you spend on this fashionable ladies, so kudos!

    I wish she’d worn the belt and better shoes. Otherwise, I love this look. The dress is gorgeous, very vintage-like–as someone abvoe said, it reminds one of Audrey Hepburn! This is a fantastic gown.

    I’ve been in love with this dress since I first lay eyes on it and had such great plans for it too! Hailee Steinfeld-shaped plans, maybe. SHe would’ve KILLED in it. Oh well.
