Gong Li In Roberto Cavalli – ‘Coming Home’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Gong Li In Roberto Cavalli -  ‘Coming Home’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Gong Li joined Huiwen Zhang by also wearing white to the ‘Coming Home’ premiere during the 67th Annual Cannes Film Festival this evening (May 20) in Cannes, France.

Opting for something less bridal compared to Huiwen, the actress wore a Roberto Cavalli satin gown with an embellished back and shoulders, which she styled with diamond jewels.

Made for the red carpet, this curve-skimming piece is at once alluring and elegant.

A simple bun completed her look.

Gong Li In Roberto Cavalli – ‘Grace of Monaco’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere & Opening Ceremony

Gong Li Roberto Cavalli

Gong Li attended the ‘Grace of Monaco’ premiere, which also served as the opening ceremony of the 67th Annual Cannes Film Festival this evening (May 14) in France.

Going the sheer and sexy route, the Asian actress wore a Roberto Cavalli Spring 2014 black embellished gown with leather trims and an open back.

Amping up the look with some diamonds, she completed her look with a slick bun.

I can’t wait to see more stunning gowns from Roberto Cavalli during Cannes.

Gong Li In Andrew Gn – Piaget Event

Gong Li In Andrew Gn - Piaget Event

Gong Li attended a Piaget promotional event on Friday in Beijing, China where she of course got to wear the brands stunning jewels.

The actress wore a navy-blue Andrew Gn Fall 2010 long sleeve gown featuring black beaded embroidery under the bust which I felt competed with the necklace.

I much prefer how the mermaid gown was presented on the runway, as I am not a fan of Gong’s lace addition to the plunging neckline.

Gong Li In Roberto Cavalli – 2011 Cannes Film Festival Opening Ceremony

A Cannes Film Festival red carpet is not complete without Roberto Cavalli.

Gong Li wore an aubergine strapless gown from the designers Couture collection which we usually see during Cannes or worn by Liz Hurley.

The Asian actress worked this stunning gown to perfection at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival Opening Ceremony.

I love the embellished bodice and the sweeping train.

Gong Li’s necklace was a tad overkill considering the exquisite detail on the bodice of her gown, she should have only added her Louis Vuitton earrings and ring from the L’Ame du Voyage and Les Eclatantes collections.

Plus Chopard.

Who Wore Louis Vuitton Better? Milla Jovovich or Gong Li

Milla Jovovich attended the “The Exodus – Burnt By The Sun” Premiere at the Palais des Festivals during Cannes Film Festival earlier this year.

The actress wore a Louis Vuitton Fall 2010 strapless gown with a rise and fall hem which was paired with satin Sergio Rossi pumps.

Gong Li wore the same dress to the Tiffany & Co. Blue Book jewelry promotion in Beijing last week.

LeeAnn informed me that the strapless dress never went into production, and it’s Gong dress which actually appears in the Louis Vuitton stores.

So it comes down to which do you prefer the runway version or the commercial version.

I’m not crazy about the dress, but Milla wins for me because the gown doesn’t need all that jewelery.
