Red Carpet Fashion Awards

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.

Actress Gong Li was on hand to cut the ribbon for the opening of Louis Vuitton’s Huaihai Global Store in downtown Shanghai yesterday looking beautiful wearing all black.

Last night she was also at the unveiling of LV’s Pudong Global Store at the Shanghai IFC Mall.

It’s the first time the French luxury house opened two stores in the same city on the same day.

Gong Li is a goddess, and she’s very much the first Lady of Louis Vuitton which is why invited to be part of these store openings.

She’s always front row or attending a chic LV party.

The Asian actress is the first to wear a look from the Louis Vuitton Fall 2010 collection.

I love her vintage velvet floral dress which has an dirndl-esque petticoat skirt.

I would’ve liked to have seen this dress without the necklace, but it’s still a fabulous look.

I hope we’ll see more of these dresses on the red carpet.

Unfortunately this was the best picture I could find.

Front Row

I will assume Leighton Meester traveled all the way to Paris for the Louis Vuitton Spring 2010 presentation, as I haven’t yet seen her front row at any other shows.

Despite the long flight and jet-lag Leighton knocks it out of the fashion ball park in floral Resort 2010 dress with a ruffle detail cascading down the front.

She paired her dress with a belted vest from the same collection.

I love everything about this look.  Even the sandals paired with socks, but that grey bag just makes me shiver.

A cute clutch or no bag at all would have been preferred.

I’m sure many of you will go crazy over Freida Pinto’s Fall 2009 look consisting of an electric blue jersey top paired with a matching layered chiffon skirt.

I think the look is just OK.

I’m more drawn to the bright colour, the open-toe boots and bag, as the hair just ruins the look for me plus the top is a little tight about the bust.

I saved going gaga for Camilla Belle who wore my favourite look from the Louis Vuitton Fall 2009 collection.

Camilla never has a day off look fabulous, but I just wish she hadn’t worn those shades.

Katy Perry wore a metallic puff sleeve top which wasn’t presented on the runway paired with a black pencil skirt.

I love the contrast between the futuristic top and the classic skirt.

Natalia Vodianova decided not to belt her LV Fall 2009 nude dress with a textured black yoke.

I like the look both ways.

Rinko Kikuchi is the second person to rock this LV Fall 2009 blue and pink dress with a black lace overlay.

I’m glad she wasn’t so bold to wear it as presented on the runway, as we all know Rinko likes to take a risk.

Last season Gong Li arrived at the LV show wearing a chic denim look.

This time opted for a sophisticated black coat/dress from the Fall 2009 collection which she paired with Cancan heels.

Even thought Anastasia Gorbacheva watered down the LV Fall 2009 runway look, she did it for all the right reason.

I really love this look. Those pattern leggings are gorgeous.

Daisy Lowe also wore the LV Cancan heels, but paired hers with an ivory skirt and black blazer.

This look is surprisingly demure considering she wore leopard print pants at Dolce & Gabbana’s show.

I thought she would’ve loved to have worn the adventurous pieces at LV.

Maybe Zoe Saldana was down in the dumps as the paparazzi failed to recognise her when I saw her in Paris, because her smile seems strained.

The Star Trek star opted for a rather cute playsuit with a ribboned neck tie.

After-Party

Zoe Saldana got back into her groove posing fiercely at the show’s after-party wearing a LV Fall 2009 dress.

I love her gold accessories, the ruffles sleeved and the one-poufy shoulder detail, but were’s the pom-pom?

Camilla Belle opted for a grey knotted and ruched LV Fall 2009 dress for her after-party look.

Love the hair and make-up with this look.

Natalia Vodianova arrived with her husband Justin Portman wearing another nude and black LV Fall 2009 look.

This time it was a velvet mini dress was paired with patterned tights and Cancan heels.

Gong Li wore this navy LV Fall 2009 dress with a poufy hem.

The dress is gorgeous, but the boots are a tad much when the dress has so much detail.

I guess she decided on the boots as torrential rain, thunder and lighting hit Paris last night.

Thankfully my train was pulling out of Gare du Nord on the 2013 as this started to happen.
