Zhang Ziyi In Elie Saab – 4th Beijing Film Festival

Zhang Ziyi In Elie Saab - 4th Beijing Film Festival

Zhang Ziyi attended the 4th Beijing International Film Festival at China’s National Grand Theatre on Wednesday (April 16) in Beijing, China.

Opting for a look equally as glamorous as her Hong Kong Film Awards outing, the actress selected an Elie Saab Pre-Fall 2014 jumpsuit.

The creamy hue and delicate embellishments led the way, with a simple updo and Jimmy Choo ‘Sweetie’ clutch completing the look.

While I prefer this more streamline offering for it’s younger, more modern feel, those shoes are like a knife to the heart (and the eyeballs).

Would you agree?

Stripper heels and Elie Saab? What was she thinking?

    What was she thinking! Those shoes could not be worse. I can’t even comment on the outfit.

    I’m going to pretend those shoes don’t exist cause I’m just tired of making the same remark with asian stars. nice jumpsuit, the clutch wasn’t needed but it’s okay

    Why do most Asians love them stripper esque platforms? I noticed that on most Asian red carpet.

    The shoes are an outfit killer. No good

      Because most of them are petite?

    I will usually cut some slack for platform shoes worn by petite actresses — as long as they are pretty much hidden and don’t “scream” at me.

    But this? NO, NO, NO!

    I agree – loud and clear! Elie Saab and stripper heels =’NO GO!

    Oh dear, those awful shoes really do detract, don’t they. Such a shame because the rest is just spectacular.

    The jumpsuit is truly gorgeous, but those horrid shoes ruin the whole look.

    I agree the shoes kill this look, but I love how much fun she seems to be having and I’m grateful that she is not wearing strappy sandals, cut out boots or pumps. At least she thought outside the box with her shoe choice, albeit the wrong box.

    FC I knew you would criticize the shoes when I first saw the photo in the news! So you did, and harshly lol!

    nice jumsuit..so modern and poised.
    BUT those eye killing plarform heels I can never get on board with, ruined this look.
    And just like fanbingbing,zhang ziyi made a quick change into a golden embelished couture gown during the ceremony.maybe we should get a picture of that.

    So cool with a capital C. I love it. I don’t mind the shoes. She just look so good.

    I don’t even like the jumpsuit on her frankly. Sure, she’s walking, but I would really need to see a properly posed photo of this to convince me that she pulls it off. Looks amazing on the model though.

    Don’t like the jumpsuit on her nor the model
