Who Wore Elie Saab Better…Elsa Pataky or Li Bingbing?

Who Wore Elie Saab Better Elsa Pataky or Li Bingbing

Elsa Pataky supported hubby Chris Hemsworth attending the ‘Rush’ Toronto Film Festival premiere back in September.

The Spanish actress wore a white embellished and embroidered gown from one of her favourite designers, Elie Saab, styling the Fall 2013 look with slicked-back hair and ruby drop earrings.

One month later, Li Bingbing wore the same gown to the 2013 Bazaar Stars Charity Night, also sporting a slicked-back ‘do; however, she opted to go sans jewels and added a splash of red to the lips.

Jewel-free and red lips perfected the look, so Bingbing wins for me.

Li Bingbing In Elie Saab Couture – 50th Golden Horse Awards

Li Bingbing In Elie Saab Couture - 50th Golden Horse Awards

Li Bingbing gave us our second Elie Saab Couture gown on the red carpet of the 50th Golden Horse Awards, held at Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall in Taipei, Taiwan yesterday evening.

The actress wore a blue sheer long-sleeve Spring 2013 Couture gown with beautifully crafted, lightly embellished appliqués.

I’m happy to see the illusion neckline doing its job here for a refreshing change. The gown is quite exquisite.

Pear drop earrings and a diamond cocktail ring completed her look

I’m choosing to ignore the diamante encrusted platform heels.

Li Bingbing In Elie Saab – China Film Summit And Gala Dinner

Li Bing Bing In Elie Saab - China Film Summit And Gala Dinner

Li Bingbing attended the China Film Summit and Gala Dinner on Tuesday, which was held at the Millenium Biltmore Hotel in Los Angeles, California.

The actress, who was on hand to accept the East-West Talent Award, chose a white lace-inset Elie Saab minidress from the designer’s Spring 2014 collection. The billowy bell sleeves gave Li’s look a more casual feel, but ultimately, they didn’t seem to take away from her subtly glamorous additions.

She matched her bright red lip colour to a pair of red pumps, and finished it all off with a pair of gold earrings.

Li Bingbing In Elie Saab – 2013 Bazaar Stars Charity Night

Li Bingbing In Elie Saab - 2013 Bazaar Stars Charity Night

Li Bingbing joined Fan Bingbing and Shu Qi on the red carpet yesterday evening for the 2013 Bazaar Stars Charity Night at China World Summit Wing in Beijing, China.

Also managing to wear a sheer look without us being put off by revealing undergarments, the actress wore an Elie Saab Fall 2013 white sleeveless gown with delicate embellishments throughout.

This is a perfect example of how to work the sheer trend. I hope Fan Bingbing was taking notes.

Being mindful that the gown had enough shimmer and bedazzlement, she didn’t wear any jewels, opting for a striking red lip, a slicked-back centre-parted ‘do and a white manicure, which elevated her look.

This gown takes Mr Saab to three gowns hitting the red carpet in one night following Nieves Alvarez and Fan Bingbing.

Say what you want about his embellished designs; he is still the king of the red carpet.

You may remember that Elsa Pataky wore this same dress during the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival.

Li Bingbing In Gucci – Gucci Baselworld

Li Bingbing In Gucci - Gucci Baselworld

Li Bingbing was also in Basel, Switzerland, joining Gucci CEOs at the Gucci Baselworld event to showcase their watch and jewelry wares.

Her first Gucci look was a dark-green lace embroidered dress featuring a sweetheart neckline, with a black belt from the Pre-Fall 2013 collection.

She added a special edition Gucci Bamboo timepiece and bracelet, plus horsebit earrings in 18kt pink gold with onyx and black diamonds.

Completing her head-to-toe Gucci look, she carried a yellow patent horsebit clutch, black peep-toes and a brown wool coat. Minus the clutch, this is yet another chic look which proves why she is such a great ambassador for Gucci.

For her visit to the Ateliers, where she got to see the pieces being produced up close, the Asian beauty donned another Gucci Pre-Fall 2013 look.

Keeping her brown wool coat, she wore a red-and-black plaid top and pants, which she styled with Gucci horsebit earrings.

Even though I can’t see all of look two, it is my favoured look.
