Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Fan Bingbing donned one of her favourite wigs for her appearance on the red carpet for the Bazaar Men’s Style Awards held in Beijing, China on Saturday evening.

Dressed in a Giorgio Armani Fall 2012 black sequin dress with silver detailing, the actress balances a very fine line between looking fabulous and comical.

I’m still on the fence as I’m not sure I can get on board with the copper wig, but I love the wide-brim hat, which is also part of the Armani Fall 2012 collection.

I supposed this look could’ve been worse had she over-styled it with those accessories.

A red Louis Vuitton ‘Alma BB’ shoulder bag and heavy black platform pumps completed the look.

Fabulous or comical?

It’s been a while since we saw Fan Bingbing on the red carpet.

The Asian beauty attended the Esquire Man at his Best 2012 event at Century Theatre in Beijing, China.

Known for her occasional crazy theatrics, she wore a beautiful Tadashi Shoji Spring 2013 gown.

Her sleeveless blue-and-green ikat print gown was styled with a rather outdated Balmain bold-shouldered leather jacket and a black shoulder bag.

I’m not sure if the glasses were added for a quirk, or she decided not to wear her contacts on this occasion.

Back in April Fan Bingbing attended the opening of a new Valentino boutique in Beijing, China.

She wore a beautiful floral embroidered Valentino floor-length dress from the Spring 2012 collection.

Opting for a gimmick-free look, the actress wore her hair back and applied a coral lip colour.

Olivia Palermo wore the same dress a few months later when she attended the 2012 Brazil Foundation Gala Party in New York City.

Unlike Fan Bingbing, the lining of Olivia’s dress only reached above the knee. She also opted for a raspberry-coloured belt with gold hardware.

Also wearing her hair back, the star opted for a fresh-faced look and a bronze satin clutch.

I’m going to give this one to Fan Bingbing, only because I prefer the length of the lining of her dress.

Fan Bingbing attended the ‘Voice of China’ final on Sunday in Shanghai, China.

The muse for Stéphane Rolland once again wore a look from his Fall 2012 Couture Collection.

At this rate she will have worn the whole collection by Christmas.

On this occasion she wore a sleek, rich burgundy velvet dress with jersey sleeves and a central split.

The luxe look with deep pockets and the designers’ signature gold waistband was overladen with accessories from the Anna Dello Russo for H&M collection.

Three or four pieces would’ve sufficed, but it looks like Fan Bingbing is wearing the WHOLE collection.

I’m sure Anna, who is a big fan of the Chinese actress, will be flattered at the show of support, but even she would quote Coco Chanel’s famous saying, “Before you leave the house, look in the mirror and take one thing off.”

In this case it might be four or five.

Fan Bingbing and Huo Siyan attended the ‘Double Xposure’ press conference at Chaoyang Museum of Urban Planning in Beijing, China, on Monday.

As Stephane Rolland’s muse, it’s not a surprise to see the actress wearing yet another look from his recently presented Fall 2012 Couture collection.

Her ivory cape dress with a central slit and oversized suede belt with a gold buckle was once again styled with that ornate onyx statement necklace.

I wasn’t crazy about this necklace the first time around, and I can’t say I’m too enamoured by it this time.

It feels so heavy for the light garment, just like her Christian Louboutin ‘Daffodile’ lace pumps.

Huo Siyan’s footwear, which was equally unimpressive, was teamed with her Stella McCartney Pre-Fall 2012 look.

She teamed a rather strange doll-accented fascinator with her midnight-blue monogram top with a white monogram-embroidered midi skirt.

Both fail on the styling for me. Which look do you prefer?

Fan Bingbing attended the press conference of ‘John Walker & Sons Odyssey’ in Shanghai, China, last week.

The current Stéphane Rolland muse was suited up wearing a look from the designer’s Fall 2012 Couture collection.

Her black suit with fringed detailing along the sleeves and pants was styled with a white vest top and an oversized statement necklace.

It’s nice to see the Chinese actress gives us something new, but I wish the pants could have been taken up several inches; they are actually dragging on the floor.

A severe centre-parted ponytail and hot red lips completed her look.

Not her finest moment I have to say.
