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.

Angelababy In Valentino & Carina Lau In Chanel  – ‘Young Detective Dee Rise of the Sea’ Hong Kong Premiere

On Tuesday, Angelababy and Carina Lau moved onto Hong Kong following the Beijing premiere of their latest movie, ‘Young Detective Dee: Rise of the Sea Dragon’.

Angelababy: It was the model/actress’s turn to favour Valentino, selecting a Fall 2013 long-sleeved white dress with china-blue embroidery, which she styled with metallic-silver pumps. This is an amazing look for Angelababy. I love that she is working different silhouettes and styles, as she previously tended to stick to gowns; however, this is the third time we are seeing the look now, following Lea Seydoux and Charlotte Ronson.

Carina Lau: Following two Valentino looks on Monday, she turned to Chanel on this occasion, donning a pearl-accented top and leather skirt from the Spring 2013 collection. Some may think the pearl statement necklace OTT, but I’m more bothered by those clunky pumps.

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?

Carina Lau In Marc Jacobs - Louis Vuitton Commerical Event

Carina Lau attended a commercial event hosted by Louis Vuitton in Hong Kong, China on Saturday evening.

The actress surprised me by wearing a Marc Jacobs Spring 2013 look.

Usually when a brand hosts an event, especially in Asia, the celebrity wears that brand. While designed by the same designer, it’s still an usual move.

Her 60s-inspired black-gold-and-white short-sleeved dress with a squared top half and striped panelled skirt with sheer inserts is the shorter version of the same look which took to the runway.

Carina’s styling makes this look feel very pedestrian. The sassy vibe the look had on the runway is made to look quite conservative with her black accessories and centre-parted ‘do, which is probably the look she was going for.
