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.

Louis Vuitton x Jeff Koons Collaboration Launch Party

No stranger to collaborations, Louis Vuitton has now partnered with pop artist Jeff Koons on a limited line of accessories launching in April 28. To celebrate this Masters capsule collection, a dinner was held in Paris on Tuesday (April 11), with a host of LV-clad lovelies in attendance.

Jennifer Connelly: With a nod to a softer, romantic mood, Jennifer let her hair down in this decorative brocade and lace frock topped with a feathery stole. The label’s signature patent booties brought back the edge we’d expect in a look from this actress.

Fan Bingbing: Fan wore the signature sheer asymmetry of this gown effortlessly, which we’ve seen in different variation on Sophie Turner and Janice Man. I just think it would have been better served by sleeker styling, as the handbag and earrings competed rather than complemented the dress.

Cate Blanchett: As per, Cate cut a striking figure. But, the tailored regality of the sculptural top disappeared a bit with the drop-crotch pants, which can be something of an acquired taste.

Fan Bingbing In Louis Vuitton – ‘The Amazing Race China’ Press Conference

Fresh from her best actress win at the 11th annual Asian Film Awards, Fan Bingbing was back on the red carpet for ‘The Amazing Race China’ press conference yesterday (March 23).

Known as the queen of princess gowns, the actress does surprise us from time to time; and this would be one of those rare occasions.

Her Louis Vuitton Spring 2017 suit with oversized proportions was all business, yet I love how she added a pair of Tuleste pom pom earrings to lighten the mood.

The platform Giuseppe Zanotti sandals are of course expected, yet they coordinate well with her look.

You weren’t fans (no pun intended) of her Elie Saab Couture look, so how does this look fare?
