Carina Lau In Valentino & Angelababy In Christian Dior – ‘Young Detective Dee: Rise of the Sea’ Press Conference & Premiere

Carina Lau In Valentino & Angelababy In Christian Dior - 'Young Detective Dee Rise of the Sea' Press Conference & Premiere

Two of our favourite stylish Asian actresses took to the red carpet for the ‘Young Detective Dee: Rise of the Sea’ press conference held at Kerry Centre Hotel in Beijing, China on Monday.

Carina Lau: The beautiful actress wore a long-sleeved wool Valentino Fall 2013 black dress featuring slit hip pockets and a contrast white peplum with cutwork and tonal beaded embellishment styled with black pumps.

Angelababy: The model/actress was equally glam, wearing a Christian Dior Fall 2013 pale-pink silk bustier and black-and-off-white silk skirt with a draped detail on the hip, which she styled with black Dior heels. You may remember that Ahna O’Reilly wore this dress to the ‘Jobs’ LA screening last month.

The same day, both ladies attended the premiere held at Solana, yet only Carina opted to change.

Carina Lau: Turning to Valentino again, she wore a long-sleeved black gown also from the Fall 2013 collection featuring a contrast lace collar and bib, contrast lace buttoned cuffs, a sheer insert at the waist and tonal intricate beaded embroidery at the front bodice, around the waist and at the hem. She styled her gown with her hair back and a black-and-gold clutch.

Angelababy: Wearing the same dress, she opted to wear her hair down on this occasion and added tights to her look.

Should Angelababy have changed? I would’ve liked to have seen her in a second look, but I like the fact that she was confident enough to rock the same look all day. Who needs the hassle of deciding what to wear and then changing into it?

    I like both of Carina’s looks. Not sure how I feel about Angelababy wearing the same dress for the premiere. I don’t like the tights with the dress but I do like her hair down. She is so pretty it almost doesn’t even matter.

    I have no issue with her not changing, but I despise the tights with this dress.

    I quite like how Angelababy didnt change, these celebs have hectic schedules. Im always impressed when they rock out two, three or more looks in a day. I prefer Carina’s first look.

    Angelbaby looks gorgeous.

    She could have just changed if she was planning to sabotage her dress with tights. I normally don’t mind but on this occasion it really drags down the overall look. With Carina dressed like a princess beside her she looks a bit like an usherette.

    FC -I am not sure if they are tights because CD has boots for Autumn that look like tights-I bought the embroidered ones that are on the model in the picture. They also come plain. I prefer the embroidered version-they give a bit of whimsy to the straight lines of the look.

      You got the embroidered Dior boots?! So fly.

      • LeeAnn September 26, 2013 at 10:51 #

        at 10 cm with a 1 cm platform I hope I can walk in them-they really sharpen a conservative outfit.

    This comment might appear twice. FC-I don’t think they are tights. Dior made boots that look like tights and I think she has these on. The embridered version were worn with the dress. I bought them and they are stunning . They are made of tight material with embroidered and painted eyes, flowers ,hands etc . and add a bit of whimsey to the straight minimalism.

    I like the looks in the first picture, but only Angelababy’s hair in the second.

  9. Yeliz September 25, 2013 at 17:22 #

    I don’t like Carina’s shoes in the first look and her second look is aging her.
    I think Angelababy should have changed. Whilst I really like the dress, I only like her hair in her second presentation. Big No to the tights.

    • KatieKate September 26, 2013 at 00:10 #

      I agree on all points. And as far as changing, I feel like, if Carina changed, then Angelababy should have too.

    • Alina September 26, 2013 at 07:30 #

      I agree with Yeliz too.

    Could zoom in on my IPad at home-should never have doubted you- they are tights. Why would you do that? Did Pippa M style her?

    I hate the fact that both of their outfits remind me of the characters in Downton Abbey…..

  12. EmmaWoodhouse September 26, 2013 at 04:12 #

    Love them both in the first picture, but in the second picture the tights bring down the look and Carina’s look is a little glam headmistress.

    The only thing Angelababy should change is her name. Sounds like a masseuse or porn star.

    I’m all for celebrities changing- the more fashion for us to pour over. I prefer Angelababy’s styling for the press conference. She’s so beautiful. I like Carina’s press conference dress more than her premiere gown.
