Who Wore Carolina Herrera Better…Sarah Paulson or Fan Bingbing?

Who Wore Carolina Herrera Better Sarah Paulson or Fan Bingbing

Sarah Paulson looked divine while gliding down the red carpet for the 2013 Emmy Awards dressed in a vibrant raspberry Carolina Herrera Fall 2013 plunging gown accented with a sweet bow detail.

Fan Bingbing wore the same gown earlier this week, opting for a more modest plunge while promoting Konka’s new LED Smart TV.

While I wish Sarah had worn her hair up, I do prefer her unmodified version of the gown so she wins for me.

Fan Bingbing In Carolina Herrera – Konka Commerical Event

Fan Bingbing In Carolina Herrera - Konka Commerical Event

Fan Bingbing attended a commercial event to celebrate Konka’s new LED Smart TV on Monday (August 18) in Chengdu, Sichuan province of China.

If you feel like you have been starved of glamour this summer, Bingbing’s return to the red carpet should keep you going until the Emmys on Monday.

The Asian beauty wore a Carolina Herrera Fall 2013 gown which balances daring and demure with a plunging (modified) neckline, potent ruby hue, bow tied at the waist and elbow-length sleeves.

Styled with Chopard jewels, Bingbing opted to sweep her long raven tresses up into a strict high bun with a central parting.

Speaking of the Emmys, you may remember that Sarah Paulson wore this same dress to the 2013 Emmys, opting to keep the plunge as deep as it appeared on the runway.

Fan Bingbing In Chictopia – ‘The White Haired Witch of Lunar Kingdom’ Chengdu Press Conference

Fan Bingbing In Chictopia - 'The White Haired Witch of Lunar Kingdom' Chengdu Press Conference

Fan Bingbing moved on to Chengdu, China, where she continued to promote her new movie, ‘The White Haired Witch of Lunar Kingdom’, on Tuesday (July 29).

Keeping up her run of supporting Asian designers, the actress wore a coral and black patterned retro-meets-modern frock from Beijing-born designer Christine Lau, who founded the Chictopia.

Crafted from a sturdy fabric to withhold its voluminous skirt, structured shoulders and bow accent, the actress styled her look with platform grey peep-toes and Chopard jewels.

I can’t say I’m a fan of either the style or colour of the shoes with this dress, but not being a fan of Bingbing’s shoe choice is nothing new.

Ankles up, this is another great look from the variety she has given us on this promo tour.

Fan Bingbing 范冰冰 In Chris by Christopher Bu & Helen Lee – ‘The White Haired Witch of Lunar Kingdom’ Press Conference & Premiere

Fan Bingbing continued to promote her new movie, ‘The White Haired Witch of Lunar Kingdom’, attending two more events.

Beijing Press Conference: You’ll be delighted to see the lack of quadruple-stacked heels on this very rare occasion. The actress wore her Saint Laurent criss-cross platform patent-leather pumps with a pretty blue and black patterned Chris by Christopher Bu Fall 2014 dress with her raven waves tumbling down one side. While her gown choices are a tad on the predictable side, her looks for press conferences are varied and playful.

Beijing Premiere: I am sure you are as shocked as I am that the actress didn’t wear a flowy, embellished gown of the Elie Saab variety for the premiere, instead wearing a Helen Lee Fall 2014 blouson top and skirt in shades of pink and grey which both feature a red-manicured hand holding a rabbit. This may appear strange but the Chinese designer is often inspired by Chinese contemporary artists when creating her collections. Bunny-clutching print aside, I love this look; once again I find it refreshing, with the mint-green Lanvin pumps drawing out the green on her skirt.

Which look do you prefer?

Fan Bingbing attended the press conference of ‘The White Haired Witch of Lunar Kingdom’ on Sunday (July 27) in Beijing, China.

The Asian beauty was true to form, looking beautiful wearing a yellow chiffon Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2014 empire-waist knee-length dress featuring both owl and floral prints.

She also kept up her love for quadruple-stack heels, which ordinarily throw me off any look but this one manages to get a pass.

Chopard jewels and sleek straight tresses completed her look.

Fan Bingbing In Louis Vuitton - Louis Vuitton Chengdu Flagship Store Opening

Fan Bingbing was on hand to celebrate the Louis Vuitton flagship store opening ceremony at Chengdu IFS on Thursday (July 3) in Chengdu, China.

The actress selected a look from Louis Vuitton’s Fall 2014 collection which is full of edgy pieces, yet Bingbing was able to find a look and strip it back to suit her uber-girlie style.

Her ivory, white and black leather-trimmed fit-and-flare frock was styled with platform peep-toes and a mini Louis Vuitton shoulder bag.

Wavy raven tresses and a bold red lip completed her look.

You may remember that Brit Marling wore this same dress to the Louis Vuitton Resort 2015 show.
