Zhang Ziyi In Peter Pilotto - 'The Road to the Grandmasters' Chinese Film Festival Opening Film

Zhang Ziyi made a splash today at a press conference for the 2013 Chinese Film Festival’s opening film, ‘The Road to the Grandmasters,’ at Yeouldo CGV in Seoul, South Korea.

The actress, who has previously shown she’s not afraid to push the boundaries with a range of styles, indulged in a mixed bag of prints with her exaggerated shoulder-cape dress from Peter Pilotto’s Fall 2013 collection.

The designer’s maximal-print aesthetic was out in force here with a colourful kaleidoscope of swirling patterns, which were nipped in with a solid black-and-white waistband.

If there was ever an occasion for a simple black shoe, this may have been the time to ground the frenzied boldness of this look. But, for the red carpet, Zhang’s glittery metallic Jimmy Choo platform pumps were still preferred to the even clunkier patent brogues from the runway.

While accessories weren’t all that necessary, she did select an unobtrusive, wiry pair of H. Stern earrings, along with a Gilan cocktail ring and a gold Omega watch, which also directed attention to her purple manicure.

So as not to compete any further from her intrepid sartorial statement, she pulled her hair into a sleek and discreet updo.
