Chanel The Little Black Jacket Beijing

The Little Black Jacket exhibition hosted by Chanel was presented in Beijing, China yesterday evening with a mix of local celebs and Chanel ambassadresses.

Zhou Xun: No stranger to wearing Chanel, the Asian beauty looked like a delicate porcelain doll, wearing a black-and-white Chanel Spring 2013 Couture sequin dress featuring floral embroidery. Everything about her look is so sculptured, right down to her bowl haircut. The only thing I would change about the look is the platform stripper-like heels.

Zhang Ziyi: The actress was the picture of elegance once again, wearing a chic yet laidback look from Chanel’s Pre-Fall 2013 collection. I didn’t see much red carpet potential from this collection considering how heavily layered each piece was presented. However, I love that Ziyi stripped back the layers to give us this beautiful look, which she styled with a Chanel Fall 2012 silver belt and Chanel Fine jewelry. Step back people, she’s on a roll.

Alicia Vikander: The Swedish actress wore a summery look from the Chanel Resort 2013 collection. Her flirty blue lace top and skirt was styled with an ocean-blue-and-white clutch and striped blue-and-white Chanel Resort 2013 shoes to add a nautical vibe to her sophisticated look.

Sun Fei Fei: The model opted for a simple, short LBD from Chanel’s Fall 2013 collection with a flared skirt. As you know, I’m not the greatest fan of black dresses; however, the style of her dress and styling of the overall look bowls me over. She added Chanel accessories including pearl earrings, an ivory clutch, a black tweed bag, plus black-and-transparent shoes which are not only popular for Chanel, but also a few other designers as well.

Virginie Ledoyen: The French actress selected a pale-green Chanel Spring 2010 ruched dress which is my least favourite of the bunch as it gives her a very boxy shape. Even with the ruched detailing, I would’ve been tempted to belt this look. The silver cuff works for me, but the feather hair accessory, and black Chanel shoes and clutch are a snooze.

Lin Peng: The actress also wore a summery blue-and-white Chanel look with a chic cropped jacket accented with pearl buttons; however, it’s the addition of the pink which makes her look stand out.

Wang Li Kun: Clearly the theme was blue-and-white as Wang Li Kun donned a Chanel frock bearing these colours. A blue Chanel bag and toe-cap pumps which are too heavy for her summery look provided the finishing touches.

Who stands out for you here?
