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?

Carina Lau In Alexander McQueen – 2012 Bazaar Charity Night

Carina Lau joined Zhang Ziyi on the red carpet for the 2012 Bazaar Charity Night held in Beijing, China, on Saturday evening.

The beautiful actress, known for her love of colour, wore an all black Alexander McQueen look.

We didn’t see nearly enough of the McQueen Spring 2012 collection on the red carpet, so I’m glad Carina decided to wear this embellished silk chiffon and lace gown on this occasion.

The exquisite gown with a skirt which cascades into a beautiful sheer train was styled with a black McQueen clutch, with a gold frame and skull clasp, gold earrings, an elaborate gold cuff and Jimmy Choo heels.

Wisely opting to make this look all about the gown, she kept her makeup very simple, applying a glossy lip colour and sweeping her hair back into a simple bun.

As usual, Carina always delivers on the red carpet.

You can buy Carina’s Alexander McQueen gown from Net-A-Porter International.
