2009 Asian Film Awards

Best Actress winner, Zhou Xun shows off her award, wearing stunning costume-made Burberry Prorsum gown.

The gown was made using the same delicate leafy lace, which we saw presented in the Spring 2009 collection.

Malaysian actress Michelle Yeoh wore this lime green, one-shoulder Atelier Versace Fall 2008 gown. I’m not crazy about the colour, but I love the detail on the bodice.

Taiwanese actress Guey Lun-Mei, wore a gorgeous chiffon strapless Celine Spring 2009 dress with a leather waistband, which she has modified from the runway.

Although I love the more dramatic runway version, with the cap sleeves, visible white underlay, and leather details on the shoulders, the modification of Guey’s dress, was the right choice for her demure look.

I adore her updo, as it completes this sleek look.

Mainland Chinese actress Fan Bing Bing wore this tropical print Gucci Spring 2009 maxi dress.

This is the same dress which Rihanna wore on that infamous night of the Clive Davis pre- Grammy party.

The dress looks fine without a belt on the runway, as it billows in the model-made wind, but off the runway, I would prefer to see this dress with a belt, to prevent it looking like a tent. With the belt the dress and the wearer have more shape.

I love Fan’s blue glitter star clutch.

One of my favourite dresses of this event was worn by Hong Kong actress Gigi Leung.

I loved this Salvatore Ferragamo Spring 2009 halter dress when it was first worn by Gwyneth Paltrow last year in black, but it’s just as outstanding on Gigi in red.

I was never a fan of the Fendi Spring 2009, and I wasn’t surprised that we haven’t seen much of it on the red carpet.

South Korean actress Lee Na-young adds so much charm and grace to this Fendi lace dress, it’s hard not to fall in love with it. A cute box clutch and gold heels complete her look.

Mainland Chinese actress Zhao Tao opted for the red over the pink runway version of this adorable Christian Dior Spring 2009 ultra mini dress.

I’m not crazy about her choice of footwear, but I admire her for wearing such short dress.

This is one of the plainest dresses on this red carpet, but I still find this Chloe Resort 2009 strapless column gown really beautiful.

Japanese actress Eri Fukatsu chose a very minimalist look. Only accessorizing her with a simple bracelet with her gown.

This has to be one of the best dressed red carpet events of the year.
