Angelababy In Masha Ma – ‘Crimes of Passion’ Press Conference

Angelababy In Masha Ma - 'Crimes of Passion' Press Conference

Angelababy attended the ‘Crimes of Passion’ press conference held in Beijing, China on Tuesday.

The model/actress known for her love of stunning gowns opted for a more laidback look featuring a chambray cropped shirt with a Masha Ma Spring 2013 skirt with a fishtail hemline.

As with most looks we observe from the East, the look was styled with a pair of quadruple-stacked platform heels.

Additional styling included a blue bead bracelet and both silver and gold rings.

Pretty girl, terrible look from head to toe. Especially the horse-hoofed toe.

Who Wore Alexander McQueen Better…Elizabeth Banks or Angelababy?

Who Wore Alexander McQueen Better Elizabeth Banks or Angelababy

Elizabeth Banks looked breathtaking when she took to the red carpet for the 2013 Vanity Fair Oscars party back in February wearing an off-runway Alexander McQueen Spring 2013 gown with a low-cut bodice.

She styled her poppy-print organza gown with an Alexander McQueen tortoise-shell belt with a gold buckle, Dior jewels, Brian Atwood heels and a gold McQueen clutch.

Angelababy wore the same gown when she attended the 2013 Huading Awards Ceremony in Hong Kong last month.
Opting to style her gown with the solid gold belt, I felt the jewels were too much for this gown; Elizabeth was right to keep her jewels simple.

Also, the excessive boobage was off putting. For letting the gown do all the talking, Elizabeth wins for me.

Angelababy In Alexander McQueen – 2013 Huading Awards Ceremony

Angelababy In Alexander McQueen - 2013 Huading Awards Ceremony

Angelababy joined Fan Bingbing on the red carpet for the 2013 Huading Awards Ceremony, held at the Kowloonbay International Trade and Exhibition Centre in Hong Kong yesterday evening.

The stunning actress wore an Alexander McQueen Spring 2013 strapless gown.

While the red floral bustier gown accented with a gold belt is stunning, it would be remiss of me not to point out the excessive boobage and the needless silver jewels.

Simplicity was the direction in which she should’ve strode; instead, she over-accessorized the look.

Does Angelababy win you over with this look, or are you not feeling it for the reasons I have listed above?

You may remember that Elizabeth Banks wore this same gown to the 2013 Vanity Fair Party.

Christian Dior Spring 2013 Couture Shanghai Fashion Show

Dior Shanghai Spring 2013 Couture

As Asia is such an important market for fashion brands, Christian Dior headed east to present their Spring 2013 Haute Couture collection at Five on the Bund in Shanghai, China on Saturday, inviting several of our favourite Asian actresses who all wore looks from the Dior Spring 2013 ready-to-wear collection.

Zhang Ziyi: The Asian superstar took her front-row seat wearing a look from the Spring 2013 ready-to-wear collection, which has been so successful on the red carpet. She selected a yellow-gold paillette dress with a layered tulle overlay. This look would’ve been amazing if she had worn the runway belt. As presented, Zhang looks very boxy.

Shu Qi: Taking a more masculine approach, Shu Qi wore a Dior charcoal-grey tuxedo dress with notched lapels and a pleated skirt with shimmering blue and pink panels. Not only do I not get the dress, but I also don’t understand the styling choice of adding patterned tights. A very rare miss for Shu Qi.

Angelababy: Even Angelababy can’t make this collection work. All I see here is a lot of fabric posing as a tri-coloured strapless Dior dress, and a solid effort to lift the look with pink Dior sandals and a grey Miss Dior bag; sadly, those efforts are to no avail.

Sun Li: The actress is the only one who gets a pass from me. While we have seen this Dior strapless tuxedo dress before on Allison Williams, this is the only dress that worked on this red carpet; of course, it is hard to go wrong with an LBD.

Do any of these looks work for you? In answer to my own question, “No.”

Who Wore Chanel Better…Diane Kruger or Angelababy?

WWIB Chanel

Queen of Cannes Film Festival 2013, Diane Kruger attended the amfAR Cinema Against AIDS Gala back in May wearing a Chanel Resort 2013 dress.

Her short-sleeved embroidered white dress accented with lavender floral details was styled with an old Hollywood marcel-wave hairdo, teardrop earrings, a white clutch and silver-glitter Christian Louboutin pumps.

Sporting newly-dyed light-brown hair, Angelababy wore the same dress to the Sohu Fashion Achievement Awards in China in early January.

Giving her look an edge, she styled her pretty frock with spiked Louboutins and an oversized cuff.

While I appreciate Angelababy’s efforts to take this look up a notch, Diane’s impeccable styling ensures her win.

Front Row @ Christian Dior Fall 2013

Dior Front Row 1

A group of bold-named beauties held court at Christian Dior’s Fall 2013 presentation to see Raf Simons’ arty collection in Paris on Friday afternoon. While none were as dramatically dressed as fellow show-goer Ulyana Sergeenko, they still impressed with top-to-toe looks from the designer.

Marion Cotillard: The French actress played it safe in a simple black coat worn over a monochrome dress and paired with black tights and pointy stilettos. The one perk that kept this look interesting to me; the adorable over-the-shoulder box handbag.

Olivia Palermo: Stepping out in a dress from Dior’s Spring 2013 collection, Olivia worked the stripes and the fringe to her advantage. She kept warm with a black overcoat that featured yet another trend: fur. I loved her bright matte red lip and the flash of patent lavender on her shoe.

Anna Dello Russo: Always willing to break the style rule book, Vogue Japan’s editor-at-large was the only one who eschewed Dior. Instead, she took fur to the max in her Fendi number, ripped right off the Fall 2013 runway. The result? An interesting mix of primitive and punk with a techno edge. Her fuzzy clutch was just as “hair”-raising.

Angelababy In Christian Dior – ‘Together’ Beijing Premiere

Angelababy In Christian Dior R13 - 'Together’ Beijing Premiere

Angelababy attended the ‘Together’ premiere held in Beijing, China on Monday.

The actress wore a Christian Dior Resort 2013 flared rose-coloured dress.

Her pretty dress with an open back was styled with gold jewels and her favourite Giuseppe Zanotti quadruple-stacked black peep-toes.

As pretty as her dress is, once again we have a look ruined by those god-awful platform heels. First Zhang Ziyi and now Angelababy.

I’m hoping this trend to wear these types of shoes in Asia dies down soon.
