Louis Vuitton Beijing Store Opening

Louis Vuitton Beijing Store Opening

On Friday Louis Vuitton opened a store in Beijing, China, inviting many local celebs to help celebrate the occasion.

Fan Bingbing: As the face of the brand, Fan Bingbing was of course in attendance. The actress wore a lemon floral satin slip dress with nude Chantilly lace trims which she styled with a dove-grey LV printed coat and off-white LV ‘Alma’ bag, all from the Fall 2013 collection with much improved styling over the runway. With her style being inconsistent over the past few months, it’s nice to see her back to her effortlessly glamorous self here.

Carina Lau: The actress made her degrade Louis Vuitton Fall 2013 wrap-coat the focal part of her look with a Chantilly lace trimmed dress barely seen under her coat. While the LV sandals perfectly complement the look, the horrid grey LV fold-over clutch dominates it. Had she ditched the bag, this would’ve been my favourite look.

Qin Shupei: The model wore a Louis Vuitton Fall 2013 lingerie-inspired grey-checked slip dress with spaghetti straps and Chantilly lace trims with light embellishments, which we’ve seen twice before on Victoria Beckham, once on a shoot and the other controversially during the Wimbledon mens final. Qin styled her look with a black clutch and the same LV sandals worn by Carina and Fan in grey.

Fan Bingbing In Ashish – ‘One Night Surprise’ Beijing Press Conference

Fan Bingbing In Ashish - 'One Night Surprise' Beijing Press Conference

I received quite the sartorial startle when I saw Fan Bingbing at the ‘One Night Surprise’ press conference last Sunday in Beijing, China. The Asian star, who has shown us no shortage of eclectic looks, completely took me by surprise this time around.

After recently thinking pink in a super-girly party frock, she peace’d out in an Ashish Fall 2012 pink T-shirt dress, emblazoned on the front and the back with a hand in the V-signal. I could see Rita Ora borrowing this item.

Adding even more cartoonish, bubblegum spirit to her oversized tee were bright magenta Ferragamo platform pumps and a charming half-up, half-down ‘do.

She did seem to be having a blast in this look.

Are you at peace with the humour, or is it too funky for Fan?

Fan Bingbing In Valentino – ‘One Night Surprise’ Press Conference

Fan Bingbing In Valentino - 'One Night Surprise' Press Conference

Last time out, Fan Bingbing’s red carpet look didn’t fare so well, but she found her mojo when attending the ‘One Night Surprise’ press conference held at the Regent Hotel in Beijing, China on Friday.

The Asian beauty wore a pretty Valentino Resort 2013 pink frock with a white lace overlay on the bodice and a black satin bow.

This ultra-feminine, sugary choice is more like the Fan Bingbing I know and love; however, I have a feeling some will regard this dress as too twee for the actress.

With part of her hair pulled back, Bingbing styled her look with a pink flower bracelet and Sergio Rossi open-toe slingbacks.

Is she back to her best here, or do you have a toothache?

You may remember that Alexa Chung wore the green version of this dress late last year.

L’Oreal ‘Collection Privee by Color Riche’ Ad Campaign

L'Oreal 'Collection Privee by Color Riche' Ad Campaign

Actresses Freida Pinto, Julianne Moore, Jane Fonda, Fan Bingbing and Eva Longoria pose with models Liya Kebede, Inès de La Fressange and Doutzen Kroes for L’Oreal’s ‘Collection Privee by Color Riche’ campaign.

Captured by Norman Jean Roy, this must have been taken during Cannes Film Festival when all the ladies were providing the eye candy on the carpet while fulfilling their ambassadorial roles.

Sadly Sonam Kapoor and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan are not featured in this ad.

The women all wore black dresses, or black blouses and skirts for the shoot.

While it’s hard to identify most, the one which stands out is Fan Bingbing in her Ulyana Sergeenko Couture gown thanks to the distinctive neckline.

Update: Doutzen is wearing a Gucci Spring 2006 gown.

Fan Bingbing In Louis Vuitton – Louis Vuitton Shenyang Opening Ceremony

Fan Bingbing In Louis Vuitton - Louis Vuitton Shenyang Opening Ceremony

Fan Bingbing and actor Aarif Lee helped cut the ribbon for the opening ceremony of a new Louis Vuitton store in Shenyang, China on Tuesday last week.

She was, of course, decked out in head-to-toe Louis Vuitton, but the end result is uncharacteristically bad, even by Bingbing’s often kooky standards.

Her green cashmere scoop-neck top and silk floral skirt with a lace hem appears very grannyish on the 31-year-old actress, lacking the sliver of sex appeal this look had on the runway.

I want to blame that wig, but factor in those clunky LV shoes she loves so much and we have a strong contender for ‘Looks We Didn’t Love in 2013′.
