Fan Bingbing swooped onto the red carpet at the 18th Shanghai International Film Festival opening ceremony at Shanghai Grand Theatre on Saturday (June 13) in China.

Making a grand statement, the Chinese actress wore a striking Stéphane Rolland burgundy ball gown with a theatrical sheer, chiffon embroidered skirt.

I was obsessed with the pure drama here, but the visible illusion neckline and sleeves put a serious damper on the effect. It was a look better admired from a distance.

With such an art piece as this dress, accessories are rendered unnecessary, so I would have removed the watch and perhaps even traded the clashing red lip for a more tonal deep-ruby hue. While I’m quite certain she also wore her favoured platform-style shoes, I couldn’t be more relieved that they are hidden under the folds of the skirt.

Fan Bingbing In Ashi Studio Couture – ‘Yang Gui Fei’ Press Conference

Fan Bingbing attended the ‘Yang Gui Fei’ press conference on Saturday (June 13) in Shanghai, China.

Shimmering in an embroidered Ashi Studio Couture high-low gown, the actress created a modern fairy-tale moment.

Chopard diamond jewels added another layer of princess charm to the look. The same cannot be said for the towering, glitzy platform heels, which at least somewhat blended into the tones of the dress from afar.

We couldn’t have expected any other shoe option from Fan, though, so I will appreciate the look from the ankles up.

Fan Bingbing In Ralph & Russo Couture – Chopard Party

Fan Bingbing In Ralph & Russo Couture - Chopard Party

Fan Bingbing attended the Chopard party during the 68th annual Cannes Film Festival on Monday (May 18) in Cannes, France.

The actress has been wearing a lot of gowns lately, so we’ve been fortunate not to have seen her footwear in a while.

On this occasion she wore a feminine, laser-cut Ralph & Russo Spring 2015 Couture tea-length dress styled with Giuseppe Zanotti platforms.

The embellishments are so gaudy that they render these shoes totally inappropriate for this look.

I wish she had been content with the bling from her Chopard jewels.

Fan Bingbing In Ralph & Russo Couture – Trophée Chopard

Fan Bingbing In Ralph and Russo Couture -  Trophée Chopard

Fan Bingbing joined the Trophée Chopard 15th anniversary festivities during the 68th annual Cannes Film Festival on Friday (May 15) in Cannes, France.

Echoing the curves of the feminine form, the undulating sculpted bodice was the statement piece of this Ralph & Russo Spring 2015 Couture gown.

The actress further heightened the glamour with striking Chopard jewels on the one occasion where it’s quite alright to wear dazzle on top of dazzle with an astonishing necklace and pendant earrings.

It was an unquestionably elegant gown, but one that I could easily see on a bride’s wedding wish list.
