Red Carpet Fashion Awards

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?

Carina Lau In Versace - Charity Banquet

Carina Lau attended a charity banquet on Monday in Hong Kong, China.

After taking my breath away in her Elie Saab Couture gown for the Golden Horse Awards, I can’t say I’m too enamoured by this Versace Fall 2013 dress.

The black one-sleeve dress with a slash detail, patent-leather collar and spiked detail on the shoulder screams glam punk, which for me isn’t in line with the actress’s style.

Give this to Miley or Rihanna and I’m buying it, but on Carina not so much.

Style-fit aside, I don’t like the overall styling starting with the shoes.

Carina Lau In Elie Saab Couture - 50th Golden Horse Awards

Carina Lau rounded out at trio of Elie Saab Couture gowns to take to the red carpet yesterday evening for the 50th Golden Horse Awards, held at Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall in Taipei, Taiwan.

Saving the best Elie Saab Couture gown until last, this silver embellished, taupe long-sleeve gown featuring a scarf neckline which gently falls down her back to meet the train, couldn’t be more beautifully showcased than it is here.

Even those dazzling drop earrings can’t upstage this beautiful gown.

Carina’s red carpet looks have veered on the twee side for most of the year, so this is easily one of her best looks of the year.

Carina Lau In Valentino Couture - Valentino Fashion Show & Store Opening

Carina Lau attended both the red-themed Valentino fashion show and the opening of the house’s second largest flagship in the world in Shanghai yesterday.

For the show, she wore a white Valentino Spring 2013 Couture dress with long sheer sleeves and distinct floral appliqué embellishments all over the skirt. Her bridal-esque look didn’t stop there, though; she accessorized with a matching white Valentino bag and pumps, too.

Carina Lau In Valentino - Lane Crawford Flagship-Store Opening Ceremony

Carina Lau was feeling very blue while attending the Lane Crawford flagship-store opening ceremony at Shanghai Times Square in China yesterday evening.

The actress wore a head-to-toe look by one of her favourite brands: Valentino.

She wore a long-sleeved Valentino Fall 2013 tunic dress featuring a high round neck, an A-line waist and contrast lace overlay throughout.

I know the majority of you really disliked the black Valentino T-bar pumps made popular during Fashion Month, so I’m guessing the feeling is comparable for the blue pair Carina wore, mimicking the runway look.

She styled her look with a metal clutch, with a simple updo and pink lips providing the finishing touches.

While I love the colour, I find the dress a tad too twee for Carina.

Carina Lau In Erdem -  David LaChapelle Photography Exhibition Dinner Party

Carina Lau attended the David LaChapelle photography exhibition dinner party hosted by Tod’s on Wednesday in Hong Kong, China.

The actress opted for a prim and proper look, wearing an Erdem Pre-Fall 2013 shift dress which has a hint of retro-chic with jacquard florals with lustrous metallic threading for amped-up appeal.

Carina added a beautiful beaded pink necklace which complemented the floral design, with an awkward, yet mandatory, red Tod’s bag breaking up what would’ve been a perfect look.
