Zhang Ziyi In Christian Dior Couture – ‘The Great Gatsby’ Premiere & Cannes Film Festival Opening Ceremony

Zhang Ziyi In Christian Dior Couture - ‘The Great Gatsby’ Premiere & Cannes Film Festival Opening Ceremony

Zhang Ziyi used the ‘The Great Gatsby’ Cannes Film Festival premiere, which also serves as the Opening Ceremony this evening, to showcase a new ‘do. Thankfully it wasn’t blonde.

The Asian actress sported a crop pixie cut on the red carpet while wearing a look from the Christian Dior Fall 2012 Couture collection.

Shunning the usually required gown, Zhang’s edgy new ‘do works perfectly with her navy and fuchsia pink-accented strapless top paired with black pants.

I’m not sure the gold metal waistband was required but it doesn’t take anything away from the look.

A navy satin clutch and Christian Louboutin ‘Pivichic’ pumps completed her look.

Yay nor nay on the new ‘do?

    This is too less for Cannes. And it’s also the opening ceremony. On any other occasion I would’ve loved this look though.

      exactly! Had this been a more low key event I would have liked it but for cannes…NEVER. Now is the time to whip out the big princess gowns!!

  2. Christine May 15, 2013 at 18:27 #

    Wow. She looks great. I like her new hair do! Love!

    She looks very old for a 34-year-old. Hate the hair, and I don’t like these shoes at all

    I don’t like the hairstyle. I like her outfit but I think this is too underwhelming for Cannes.

    people dress up more for fragrance launches or announcing their collaboration with a vodka company. this is the opening ceremony of cannes, i expected waaaaay more!

  6. Jai May 15, 2013 at 18:36 #

    Ha, I love everything about this look except the hair. It’s so mumsy.

  7. Alina May 15, 2013 at 18:37 #

    This is great. For a photocall.

  8. Jess May 15, 2013 at 18:45 #

    agree with the hair comments above, wish it was shorter

  9. Neli May 15, 2013 at 18:48 #

    Nay

  10. JOSH May 15, 2013 at 18:58 #

    what’s wrong with her hair and short legs?

  11. Tiger Nueng May 15, 2013 at 19:11 #

    I thinks she like to try something new in Cannes but that not work for me too.

  12. Ruff May 15, 2013 at 19:15 #

    Nice to see her out of her comfort zone. I think she looks great, but maybe not very event appropiate. I specially love to see her not wearing her usual awful platform peep toes.

    love this outfit absolutely.it makes me remind of isabelle adjani.gorgeous.shining the redcarpet.

  14. 2046 May 15, 2013 at 19:24 #

    every star seems lacking of courage to wear the outfit like this at the redcarpet.but ziyi did it tonignt.so perfect….so chic…so gorgeous

  15. Moxie May 15, 2013 at 19:28 #

    The outfit is underwhelming. The hair isn’t working for her.

  16. Mari May 15, 2013 at 19:32 #

    This is nice, but maybe not for the occasion.
    Also, it makes her look much older, she usually looks so young, I did not recognise her.

  17. Zissou May 15, 2013 at 21:15 #

    The look is insanely dated: there absolutely nothing here that I would enjoy.

    Oh my God! This hairstyle aged her at least 20 years! I honestly feel like crying.

    I won’t even get started on this ensemble.
    I’m just really sad right now :(

  20. Philip May 15, 2013 at 21:58 #

    Love it. She looks gorgeous and special.

  21. Alicat May 16, 2013 at 03:23 #

    She looks good but a strange choice for the event.

  22. EmmaWoodhouse May 16, 2013 at 04:13 #

    I DIED! What is this? I’ve always loved Zhang’s style–but now with this stringy, aging hairstyle and event-inappropriate look she’s disappointed me so much! I wouldn’t be a huge fan of this look normally, but it’s an insult at the CANNES opening ceremony! For crying out loud!

  23. Lyn May 16, 2013 at 10:47 #

    this time not as an actress but as an honor juror, nothing wrong with her new look I think just fit to her role.

  24. Jess2 May 16, 2013 at 12:27 #

    Well I must say that I am disappointed. While I love Zhangs ensemble I expected far more from the woman who brought us BDOTY looks for the past two years. I mean, this is Cannes!! Jury is still on the new do, looking forward to seeing what comes next.

  25. Louise May 16, 2013 at 15:00 #

    The hair ages her, you’d think a short edgy hairstyle would make you look younger but it’s achieved the opposite here.

  26. hk1069 May 16, 2013 at 20:08 #

    that looked like a housewife on the way to supermarket

  27. tuftufwang May 16, 2013 at 21:56 #

    I have a feeling I know who styled her hair – he is an overrated hair stylist in South East Asia. Should have fired him long ago

  28. Joy May 17, 2013 at 06:24 #

    Thank GOD this was just a wig. This look could not get any worse. This is SO far from what we can usually expect from her. I am usually head over heels in love with her feminine & sophisticated looks. Whomever styled this needs a new career.

  29. lyanna August 20, 2013 at 08:04 #

    it’s a special short hairdo to cover her long beautiful hair- a daring trial!
    she looks pro as a jury!—not a common red carpet show
