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 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 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.

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.

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.

Gong Li and Pace Wu were just two of the stunning stars to arrive on the red carpet for the Tiffany & Co. Blue Book Jewelry Promotion in Beijing this week.

I don’t think I’ve ever featured Gong Li on my site wearing anything other than Louis Vuitton. She simply adores the brand.

She wore her second Louis Vuitton Fall 2010 gown to this event.

On this occasion she modified the bustier gown to include straps.

The modification makes sense considering the gown was hovering dangerously low on Elle Macpherson, but I wonder why she didn’t consider Look 54 instead.

Gong Li wore silver Mary Janes to complement the silver satin lining of her gown.

Are you liking the modification? Or do you prefer how the dress was presented on the runway?

Pace Wu looked breath-taking wearing a Jason Wu Fall 2010 strapless floral gown.

Thank god the gown kept all it’s fluffy volume.

Nothing depresses me more than a flat gown. I’m glad Pace Wu proved that it can be done.

She didn’t need all that jewelry as gown stands alone.

Both ladies of course dazzled in Tiffany jewels.
