Carina Lau In Elie Saab Couture – ‘Bends’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Carina Lau In Elie Saab Couture - 'Soshite Chichi Ni Naru' Cannes Film Festival Premiere

It’s the moment I have been waiting for since Wednesday — well, since the Elie Saab Spring 2013 Couture collection was presented, and that was to strike this stunning gown off my wish list.

Carina Lau attended the ‘Bends’ premiere during Cannes Film Festival at the Palais des Festivals in France this evening glowing in the white embellished gown with cape, which is my favourite look from my favourite designer.

The only thing I would change about this look is the jewellery. I would strip the look back and let the gown do all the talking.

Carina Lau In Elie Saab Couture – ‘Bends’ Cannes Film Festival Photocall

Carina Lau In Elie Saab Couture – ‘Bends’ Cannes Film Festival Photocall

Carina Lau attended the photocall for ‘Bends’ during Cannes Film Festival at Palais des Festivals in France this afternoon.

The Asian actress, who I love for her daring fashion choices, opted for an Elie Saab Spring 2013 Couture look on this occasion.

While there is nothing daring about this particular choice, her lilac long-sleeve dress with an embellished pattern is Cannes photocall appropriate, even though I wish she’d taken the hem up a few inches.

Silver jewels and lace ankle-strap shoes which matched her dress completed her lady-like look.

Carina Lau In Valentino Couture – 2013 Hong Kong Film Awards

Carina Lau In Valentino Couture - 2013 Hong Kong Film Awards

Carina Lau wore red on the red carpet of the 2013 Hong Kong Film Awards on Saturday.

The actress wore a Valentino Couture Fall 2012 gown and carried a transparent Valentino ‘Mimetic’ minaudière.

Accompanying her husband Tony Leung Chiu Wai, who was nominated in the Best Actor category, Carina went for a simple “plus one” look versus a show-stopper, and I’m not crazy about it.

The combination of the heavy fabric and the fact that everything is so covered up makes this look like a coat rather than a dress to me.

Even the slightly shorter sleeve on the model gives this a little bit more interest than what we see on Carina.

What do you think–a solid, red carpet choice or just a little too dowdy?

Carina Lau In Christian Dior – 55th Asia-Pacific Film Festival

Carina Lau attended the 55th Asia-Pacific Film Festival at the Venetian Macao Resort Hotel in Macau on Saturday night.

The actress wore a black Christian Dior Fall 2012 gown for the star-studded event that featured a sheer plunging neckline and enriched detailing at the wrists.

To pump up the simple and classic ensemble, Carina wore Charlotte Olympia ‘Dolly’ pumps.

The fun shoes and the risqué neckline of the dress give her overall look a youthful quality, which serves to create a perfect dichotomy with the elegance she naturally exudes.

This dress has also been worn by Dianna Agron.

Carina Lau In Giambattista Valli Couture – Vogue China’s 120th Anniversary Celebration

Carina Lau attended the 120th Vogue Anniversary celebration in Beijing, China, last night.

The Asian actress wore a Giambattista Valli Fall 2011 Couture gown.

I have a feeling Carina was inspired by Sarah Jessica Parker, as she showcased the white cape on her black gown in a similar fashion to SJP when she wore a similar gown with a cape last year.

Apart from the colour, Carina’s gown differs as hers has an ornate bronze “crab” sculpture necklace.

This isn’t an easy look to pull off, but the actress does so with a lot of charisma.

Do you agree?
