Li Yuchun In Gareth Pugh - 'Cleopatra' Cannes Film Festival Premiere

While ordinarily I would frown at the fact that Li Yuchun is not wearing a gown on the red carpet for the ‘Cleopatra’ Cannes Film Festival this evening, however, I love the boldness of the look.

I mean, how many other people could make this Gareth Pugh Spring 2013 look work? I can only think of one: Tilda Swinton, or possibly Evan Rachel Wood.

The unique look features a ruffled high-neck top with a dramatic flowing train and wide-leg pants.

I’m of two minds about the black shoes. On one hand it breaks up all the red – separating her from the red carpet. On the other, it feels like a safe choice when everything else was so daring.

It may not be to everyone’s liking, but she certainly got herself noticed.
