Fan Bingbing In Valentino Couture – ‘The Beguiled’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

The second I saw Fan Bingbing on the red carpet at ‘The Beguiled’ Cannes Film Festival premiere this evening, I said to myself, there is going to be several comparisons made to a certain Oscar-winner.

No. This isn’t anything new, but I was swept away by the dramatic floor-length silhouette of this Valentino Spring 2017 Couture gown which is matched a bold red hue and stunning De Deers jewels.

Love it or not, this was one look that promises to turn heads.

Fan Bingbing In Louis Vuitton – Cannes Film Festival 70th Anniversary Celebration

By all accounts Fan Bingbing is deliberately keeping a low profile during Cannes Film Festival as she’s been taking her juror position very seriously, preferring to concentrate on that, rather than attend several events per night, which is to be commended.

So it was good to see her back for the 70th anniversary screening this evening (May 23).

This might not be to everyone’s liking, but I love how she ushers in a new romantic mood in this girlie pink Louis Vuitton custom design, infused with bohemian sensibilities which she styled with De Beers jewels.

I know many were expected several BDOTY worthy moments from Bingbing, however, I’m not disappointed with any of her looks so far.

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.
