Fan Bingbing In Elie Saab Couture – ‘Ismael’s Ghosts’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Fan Bingbing took an elegant turn at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival opening ceremony and premiere of ‘Ismael’s Ghosts on Wednesday (May 17).

By wearing a gown from the Elie Saab Couture Spring 2017 Couture Collection, the star ensured she would make a elegant and feminine turn on the red carpet.

While this ice blue color regularly reads as cheap in different fabrics and on different people, Fan avoids both, and simply looks fresh and seasonally-appropriate.

The built-in capelet is a modern and fierce addition to a classically ethereal look, but I do miss the jewels featured on the runway. Fan’s more delicate diamond pieces get lost on the dress, versus popping like the chunky gold items seen on the runway.

Otherwise, I love this look. Do you agree?

Fan Bingbing In Ralph & Russo Couture – 2017 Cannes Film Festival Jury Photocall

Fan Binbging joined fellow jury member Jessica Chastain for the jury photocall for the 70th Cannes Film Festival this afternoon (May 17).

Couture might seen OTT for a photocall, but 1. this is Cannes and 2. this is Fan Bingbing, and if there was such a rule I doubt she would follow it.

And that’s why I love her. I mean who doesn’t like some polished elegance in the form of Ralph & Russo on a sunny afternoon?

The off-the-shoulder style blazer does serve up a fresh take on the classic skirt suit, plus I love that Fan opted for single sole shoes.

I just wish she kept the runway belt, hers takes a slight shine off the look.

Louis Vuitton Resort 2018 Front Row

The Louis Vuitton Resort 2018 show was held on Sunday (May 14) in Koka, Japan, with the LV lovelies out in force in their best renditions of the brand.

Fan BingBing: I love the tough-girl edge that Fan served up here with this twist on leather, as she tempered it with a retro femininity in her bronze earrings and cross-body handbag as well as her oxblood lip.

Jennifer Connelly: Perhaps my love of electric blue was skewing my judgment, but the vibrancy of this uniform-like ensemble was intriguing. That said, the same sentiment was not felt so much for the taupe belt and platform loafers, but they did play into the funky-sport theme.

Michelle Williams: It seems as if we’ve seen this dress before, as despite its elaborate embroidery and pattern mix, it remains a bit one-note. And, it seems as if it is wearing Michelle and not the other way around. I fault the restrictive neckline for that—and the boots, which simply are too forced here.

Fan Bingbing In Marchesa – 2017 Time 100 Gala

Before the 2017 Time 100 Gala on Tuesday (April 25) in New York City, I was excited to learn that Fan Bingbing was announced as one of the judges for the 2017 Cannes Film Festival alongside Jessica Chastain.

To mark that celebration the actress wore a Marchesa Fall 2017 floral beaded satin dress with an embroidered and fringe cape which she styled with a Marchesa ‘Simonetta’ bronze clutch.

Clutch and shoes aside, I love the look. This might seem surprising as I didn’t love Blake Lively’s dress from the same collection, but Bingbing is selling this look to me.

Why?

Mostly because of the Asian influences which is void of any costumey feel. The pink and red hues are both divine and supremely elegant. Her hair and makeup is simple and perfect for this look.

Honestly I could wax lyrical about this all day.

Fan Bingbing In Givenchy & Monse – Givenchy Store Opening & 8th China Film Directors’ Guild Awards

Fan Bingbing attended the Givenchy Store Opening in China on Friday (April 21) before heading to the 8th China Film Directors’ Guild Awards the next day.

Givenchy Store Opening: The Givenchy Fall 2017 collection was done entirely in bright red, and Fan brilliantly showed off one of the pieces in this cross between a tuxedo jacket and a robe. She strikingly styled the loose, languid look with a lace camisole and gloves, hinting at boudoir elegance.

China Film Directors’ Guild Awards: Completing flipping the script on her next look, Fan served up a far different form of relaxed elegance. I love how she paired the intentionally unkempt quality of the oversized Monse Fall 2016 striped shirt with the structured tailoring of a prim pencil skirt. Opposites do really attract here. And, how happy are we to see this look styled without platform shoes.
