Li Yuchun In Roberto Cavalli – Chinese Party

Li Yuchun In Roberto Cavalli - Chinese Party

Li Yuchun came to our attention yesterday wearing a Gareth Pugh Spring 2013 Chinese-red ensemble, which appears to be the marmite look of Cannes so far.

She proved she wasn’t afraid of taking a risk, wearing a bold colour and an unusual design at the Chinese Party held later that evening; she proved that she’s not afraid of prints either.
It would appear that Li Yuchun’s red carpet M.O. is of an androgynous nature.

I could be wrong and she’ll hit the red carpet later today in a tulle ballgown, but at the party she rocked another menswear-inspired look, this time from the Roberto Cavalli Fall 2013 collection.
The black-and-white look featuring a jacket with satin lapels was ripped right off the runway with the exclusion of the shoes.

Someone not so bold – unless they are Karolina Kurkova or Solange Knowles – would’ve added black pants or a black shirt to break up the prints; however, Yuchun rocked it as it was intended.

I can’t wait to see more of her style. I have a feeling she’s the Tilda Swinton of China.

    liyuchun love you so much

  3. Louise May 22, 2013 at 12:11 #

    I have never seen Li Yuchun in a dress before so, yeahhh. No surprise that she didn’t wear a dress on the red carpet. She is quite androgynous

  4. Yiota May 22, 2013 at 12:12 #

    I like both looks but i think i prefer this one. Gareth Pugh was more dramatic but i didn’t like the shoe choice. This is spot on IMO.

    • Mandy May 22, 2013 at 13:55 #

      +1 i think she really nailed this look.

  5. Nat May 22, 2013 at 12:14 #

    Not a fan of this look. Certainly way better than that one Solange Knowles wore it.

  6. Yeliz May 22, 2013 at 12:26 #

    This is better than her previous look, though I’m still not impressed with her style.

  7. angela May 22, 2013 at 12:27 #

    Actually I like this look. I think Li Yuchun holds this style very well.

    • Christine May 22, 2013 at 14:09 #

    • AmyHood May 22, 2013 at 13:51 #

      She has shown a new style on the carpet.The red clothes fits her very well.Elegant,cool,also amazing!

    • pipsqueak May 22, 2013 at 17:14 #

      You nailed it! Tilda Swinton (or Stella Tennant, Emannuelle Alt etc.) can be only born out of the western culture. Nonetheless, it’s exciting to see a Chinese girl who’s not trying to be a princess or a porcelain doll. She should feel more open to be herself while in the west. I like this look better than Gareth Pugh.

  9. Denise May 22, 2013 at 13:04 #

    I like her style. With so many “princesses” around this is a refreshing change. Would love some lipstick though.

  10. orange&strawberry May 22, 2013 at 13:07 #

  39. C.R May 22, 2013 at 14:04 #

    Get your own way! Develop your own style! The girl who knows what to achieve and what’s called “my self”, you’ll get the world one day, when ‘they’(the right people’ll know who ‘they’ are) all stand behind supporting you! # The spring breeze which blows Cannes film festival # You’re the one, Spring in the Universe!(think that’s the right Chinese name)

  40. Louise May 22, 2013 at 14:12 #

    Azaming and unique in her own way~ perfect ! LOVED it

  54. Vic May 22, 2013 at 14:58 #

    She looks cool, BUT she is not China’s Tilda Swinton at all! She has a long way to go. btw her style is always criticized and considered a bit abrasive in China.

  55. calmly May 22, 2013 at 15:05 #

    independent girl she is,has been sticking to be yourself,don’t go with the flow

  56. Rita May 22, 2013 at 15:07 #

  57. Moxie May 22, 2013 at 15:17 #

  63. Cordula May 22, 2013 at 15:42 #

    Pretty girl like Yuchun with snow-white skin and perfect shape can hold every colour and style:) I know she’s a very pop icon in Asia and has great talent in music.
    Love her

  64. chris May 22, 2013 at 15:50 #

  71. Derro May 22, 2013 at 16:29 #

    LOVE IT. Thank you Li Yuchun for breathing some life into the red carpet!!! I live for this. Fresh, fun, striking and bold – this is what fashion should be about. SNAPS for you girlfriend

  72. Celeste May 22, 2013 at 16:33 #

    She’s a vigorous youth as well as a graceful lady. She’s a humble girl as well as the confident live queen. She’s my little sweetie as well as my distinguished majesty. She’s so charming~~~I think she can hold many kinds of style.

  73. moonlcl May 22, 2013 at 16:37 #

    She is really unique and insists her own style~~~Like
    her very much~~~~

  74. Julep May 22, 2013 at 16:58 #

    Distinctive, spell able and lifeful, seems different from others on the red carpet, cool!

  75. Ariane May 22, 2013 at 17:07 #

    Why so many comments, is this a fans attack? :o

    I don’t like this, and hairstyle is awful.

    • Catherine Kallon May 22, 2013 at 17:23 #

      Yes, I think she is something of a big deal in China

      • Cyan May 22, 2013 at 17:31 #

        you got it.

    • Ariel May 22, 2013 at 17:31 #

      I start suspecting they are several fans with many profiles. I don t like her style anyway. It s not androgynous, since she s not Marlene Dietrich at all. Her style is only “andro-” and I find it awful for a woman.

      • pipsqueak May 23, 2013 at 06:04 #

        Yeah, she has a huge female fan base in China. I don’t think she’s a bigger deal than Zhang Ziyi or Fan Bingbing. But Zhang and Fan are a dime a dozen, whereas Li is the one and only. We’re talking about a country of 1.3 billion people and very few are out and proud. Online solidarity … great to see her make it to Cannes.

  76. Yvonne Sun May 22, 2013 at 17:11 #

    The most valuable character of Li Yuchun is “be the special”,”take an unusual way.” Givenchy loves her, so does Jean Paul Gaultier, Chanel etc. For the first look on the Cannes red carpet every one believes that she will choose one of them, fat chance Haute Couture,because this is the safest way to show the honor. But to everyone’s surprise,at last she has chosen the young Garath Pugh, whose style is so indisciplinable and so difficult to control.A brave and self-confident girl, i am proud of her.

  77. Pamela May 22, 2013 at 17:20 #

    Just search some performance of Li Yuchun, she’s so different and unique,some kind of sexy.

  78. Allen May 22, 2013 at 17:23 #

    Wow Cool and Luxurious!

  79. Cyan May 22, 2013 at 17:30 #

    The interesting thing is that she’s never tried to PUSH her body OUT. She saluted everyone by her eyes only.
    Li’s so self-possessed and kinda traditional in a rather Chinese way.
    Maybe it’s no more than my own grasp or my misconception, or maybe this sort of conservation will not be welcomed on the carpet…….
    Ye, a marmite figure.

  80. saka May 22, 2013 at 17:41 #

    How surprise!The look is so amazing!

  81. Rebecca Z May 22, 2013 at 17:45 #

    This looks great on her–much better than the overwhelming red ruffle explosion from the red carpet.

  82. k6wing May 23, 2013 at 03:24 #

    This is awful. really.

  83. Doris May 23, 2013 at 07:10 #

    I love this look!

  84. Doris May 23, 2013 at 07:11 #

    I love her special style.

  85. Doris May 23, 2013 at 07:13 #

    She’s very suitable to wear this outfit
