Carina Lau In Giambattista Valli Couture – ‘Modern Weekly’ 15th Anniversary Banquet

Carina Lau In Giambattista Valli Couture - 'Modern Weekly' 15th Anniversary BanquetCarina Lau arrived at the 15th anniversary banquet for the lifestyle magazine, ‘Modern Weekly,’ held in Shanghai, China on Saturday (December 14).

The Hong Kong actress wore a pearl-coloured design from the Giambattista Valli Spring 2013 Couture collection.

A balance of structure and delicacy, the frock featured a netted, embroidered overlay along with an exaggerated cape at the back.

I’m not sold on her styling, though. With the harsher metallic tones radiating from her clutch and peep-toe platform heels, along with a statement necklace that did nothing to complement the dress’s silhouette, this look lost some of its charm.

Perhaps softer makeup tones in blush-nudes and pinks would have helped complete the picture. What do you think?

    The accessories are killing me here. That necklace looks thrown haphazardly on and don’t get me started on those shoes. The dress looks AMAZING on the runway and she ruined it so effortlessly.

    I don’t like shoes, I can’t stand why Chinese actresses wear those ugly heels

    I don’t think this dress is right for her.

      I agree. The dress has potential, but I don’t like it on her.

    This could have been an amazing look. Ten shoes bring it down.

      I totally agree! The shoes don’t work with this dress.

    Sadly, I think she killed it before she put the shoes on. Her hair is too severe, the weird necklace and lack of color in her face–this is just so wrong for her.

      And for the dress

    • Yeliz December 16, 2013 at 23:59 #

      Totally agree with you.

    The styling sucks. And I am really disappointed that she has somehow gotten rid of the structured, nipped in waist and exaggerated hip part of the dress, turning it into one big tent. Why??

      Exactly my thoughts too.
