Fan Bingbing In Elie Saab Couture – ‘Jeune & Jolie’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Fan Bingbing In Elie Saab Couture - 'Jeune & Jolie' Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Many ladies swished their lovely gowns while taking to the red carpet this evening for the ‘Jeune & Jolie’ premiere during Cannes Film Festival, but Fan Bingbing was the first to catch my eye.
That’s because the Asian beauty was wearing Elie Saab Couture.

She may have left us a bit crestfallen that she broke with tradition last night, but she fulfilled her other Cannes duty which was to wear an Elie Saab Couture gown.

This summery yellow gown with an embellished bodice and textured skirt came from the Spring 2012 collection.

As beautfiul as her hair is, it often gets in the way, so I’m delighted she opted for a braided updo on this occasion.

A silver clutch, a divine orange lip colour and Chopard jewels completed her look.

    Fan Bingbing wearing Elie Saab Couture always makes a memorable, spectacular look and this look is no exception. She looks excellent.

    • Alina May 16, 2013 at 18:43 #

      Ditto.

  3. DSI May 16, 2013 at 18:43 #

    Indeed lovely summery shimmery gown…Hence wish her make-up had been a bit less harsher!

  4. Lilly May 16, 2013 at 18:47 #

    She looks beautiful, but I have the impression that I’ve seen it before

    • DSI May 16, 2013 at 19:01 #

      Yep- How different is it (save the fitting of the top) from her own last Elie Saab appearance at the Elton John Oscars party–http://www.redcarpet-fashionawards.com/2013/02/26/fan-bingbing-in-elie-saab-couture-2013-elton-john-aids-foundation-oscars-party/

    • Christine May 16, 2013 at 19:48 #

      We have. In pink. But this is a gorgeous look.

  5. Nat39 May 16, 2013 at 18:48 #

    Effortlessly pretty and elegant is what she does best, this is really beautiful, loving the soft summery colour and the delicate voluminous skirt, and the pop of colour via orange lippie is a nice touch. It’s a wonderful look for Fan.

    • Nat39 May 16, 2013 at 19:29 #

      It’s quite a deja vu indeed but she does look wonderful.

  6. Jai May 16, 2013 at 18:50 #

    Her makeup’s a bit geisha-like. Also, I feel like we’ve seen a gown exactly like this (only different colour) on Katy Perry.

    • Kathy May 16, 2013 at 19:04 #

      You’re right, Katy Perry wore a pale blue version of this dress to last year’s Grammys (with her Smurf-blue hair).

      • Roosje May 16, 2013 at 21:04 #

        I would say that I prefer this yellow one to Katie Perry’s blue one though

    Now this is how you do a braided updo. She looks stunning. Fan often does princessy looks but I still love this look.

    • CreoleLady May 16, 2013 at 23:55 #

      +1, love the braided ‘do. And I’m glad she did not overdo the accessories. Wish her lip/nail color were a bit softer but still, agree, a beautiful look.

  8. fromchi-town May 16, 2013 at 18:54 #

    This feels like we have seen this before… both from Elie Saab and Fan Bing Bing. She looks good, there’s no doubt about that… but I feel I have seen her do this look too many times.

    • Agathe May 16, 2013 at 18:58 #

      Exactly, nothing to write home about.
      This colour washes her out…

      • R May 16, 2013 at 20:10 #

        +2 I’m disappointed in her so far. Hopefully she’ll bring out better stuff as the festival progresses.

        • Mandy May 17, 2013 at 01:05 #

          +3 im very underwhelmed. Massive deja vu. I want something different from her.

          • Denise May 17, 2013 at 06:52 #

            Beautiful as always but the same…

    • Beta May 17, 2013 at 10:54 #

      +1 agree

  9. Tiger Nueng May 16, 2013 at 19:05 #

    She look great she made me wow with the colour but sorry I’ve to say this is really boring style.

    • Lola May 17, 2013 at 08:25 #

      +1 … What a snooooze fest…color is wrong the hairdo looks a bit…bit too Heidi…and jepp we’ve seen this before

  10. petrelli May 16, 2013 at 19:06 #

    She looks beautiful, but it’s a total déja vu.

    I’m a diehard Elie Saab fan, I feel like there just might be TOO much embroidery on this dress for its own good. Aside from the beaded bodice, the skirt also has a lot of beading and texture, especially on the bottom half. It all seems a bit heavy. Thankfully the light, creamy yellow color saves it.

  12. Moxie May 16, 2013 at 19:14 #

    Fan Bingbing always looks stunning in Elie Saab, but we’ve seen this particular dress in a vast array of colors before.

  13. Angel May 16, 2013 at 19:33 #

    It is always a delight to see Fan Bingbing in Elie Saab. She looks stunning. And I lovvvvvvvvvvvvvvvve her earrings.

  14. EmmaWoodhouse May 16, 2013 at 19:54 #

    I DIE. This is what I look forward to Cannes for!!! Love love love love!!! My BDOTD for sure and just so thrilled to see her here in top form! SWWWWOOOONNNN :) love the creamy yellow!

  15. Henrique May 16, 2013 at 20:02 #

    Haven’t we seen this look before?

  16. Rashmi May 16, 2013 at 20:03 #

    Agree with most of the comments above , it’s gorgeous in only way which FanBingbing + Elie Saab can create! However it’s gives a déjà vu :(

  17. Fanny May 16, 2013 at 20:37 #

    Everything is perfect.

  18. Pablo May 16, 2013 at 20:43 #

    Beautiful I don’t know why but when I think of Canes this yellow hue comes to mind, so I’m very happy to see such a great look. She’s glowing.

  19. Emily May 16, 2013 at 23:18 #

    (YAWN…) Boring!

  20. Sherrie Golden May 17, 2013 at 01:11 #

    Elie Saab is on of my favorite designers. Thumbs up for this dress.

  21. JJ May 17, 2013 at 04:16 #

    Absolutely stunning! This Elie Saab gown is heavenly and spectacular! Not sure what some of the comments about seeing this before? How many times have we seen heavenly Elie Saab gowns? Oh, yes, EVERY SINGLE TIME! This designer is a genius in my book! Best dressed for sure!

  22. Valeria May 17, 2013 at 12:59 #

    Deja vu, and between this orange lip and dark nails and Solange’s lip color and her dress Ms. Knowles wins for me by 10000 miles

  23. Jess2 May 18, 2013 at 04:16 #

    I adore this woman and I love her even more when paired with Elie Saab. Head to toe perfection yet again. Best Dressed of the Day!

  24. MEllen May 18, 2013 at 15:40 #

    Fan is so pretty in this dress. She is indeed the queen of the red carpet.
