Tilda Swinton & Li Yuchun In Chanel – Chanel’s ‘The Little Black Jacket’ Exhibition

Tilda Swinton & Li Yuchun In Chanel - Chanel's 'The Little Black Jacket’ Exhibition

From Beijing to Shanghai, Chanel’s ‘The Little Black Jacket’ exhibition keeps on rolling.

On Thursday, local and international stars came out to support the event, including Tilda Swinton and mega star Li Yuchun, who I had said during Cannes Film Festival reminded me of the British actress with her androgynous style.

Tilda Swinton: Dialling down the androgyny, Tilda, who was the first person to wear a look from Chanel’s Resort 2014 collection, selected a white sequin tulle dress from that same collection. It’s been a while since we last saw her wear a dress. Even during Cannes Film Festival she wore two trousered looks. Her loose-fitted dress with an embroidered front was styled with white Chanel pumps and barely there, approaching zero makeup.

Li Yuchun: The singer, who also didn’t wear a dress during Cannes, opted for a look from Chanel’s Fall 2013 collection, donning a heavy-looking black-and-white herringbone jacket with braided trims styled with black Chanel jeans and a white high-collared shirt from the Pre-Fall 2013 collection. The final touch came via her black Chanel boots and a silver chain necklace. Is there a little too much going on, or did she pull this off? I think she pulls it off effortlessly.

    I like both looks. They both look fierce!

    • Dhppy June 25, 2013 at 21:17 #

      Yes, exactly. “Fierce” is what comes to mind.

    • Mandy June 26, 2013 at 02:21 #

      Fierce is the perfect word. These two are rocking it.

    It’s always a pleasure to see Tilda wearing a dress. She looks great here. I like Li’s look on this occasion too, she makes it work.

    I love Li Yuchun’s look, even if it’s downright wintry. I agree that she not only pulls it off, but does so in such a way as to make it seem effortless.

    Tilda I like from the neck down. The hair is too severe and I find myself wishing she had brushed it forward like the model or Li Yuchun. I also think she could use a bit more make-up; the washed out look doesn’t work as well with this kind of dress.

    Tilda looks way too washed out, a little bit more makeup wouldn’t hurt, and since she’s wearing a delicate white dress, I wish she’d toned down her masculine stance a bit.
    Li’s look is way too heavy for the season but she carries it off well, the silver necklace wasn’t needed however.

    They both look good in their respective, unique ways. But I am not bowled over by either, and have especially come to expect more from Tilda.

    Tilda looks fantastic in this dress. Although more feminine than she usually chooses, it is still true to her style. I really like it. Li’s look is quite heavy, especially considering the season, but she pulls it off expertly.

    Both are highly individual, uniquely fashionable looks. This is the sort of fashion I like.

    Not liking Tilda in white, Li Yuchun looks OK, but i wonder where are all her fans, remember Cannes Film Festival and comments? :D

    • Catherine Kallon June 26, 2013 at 10:50 #

      I know, I was bracing myself

    • droplet August 19, 2013 at 05:53 #

      One of Li’s fans is here. ^_^ If you have a Chinese version, I bet you need a new network server to support the huge amount of visitors from China.
      FYI, Li Yuchun will have a concert soon. Guess who designs all the 5 costumes for her — Riccardo Tisci. One look has been exposed in the official posters. It is a nearly transparent dress. You may want to check out and make some comment.

  12. Janice August 20, 2013 at 02:10 #

    Chanel’s Jacket makes her a noble look. It says that Li’s new concert Why Me 2013 will cooperate with Riccardo Tisci. Yes, the Director of Givenchy.
