Li Yuchun 李宇春 In Chanel Couture – Cannes Film Festival Closing Ceremony

Li Yuchun ??? In Chanel Couture - Cannes Film Festival Closing Ceremony

Li Yuchun presented the Short Film Special Distinction award during the Closing Ceremony of the 67th Annual Cannes Film Festival on Saturday (May 24) in Cannes, France.

Changing out of her custom Givenchy Couture look, the Asian superstar wore a Chanel Fall 2012 Couture ensemble featuring a feathered long-sleeve top and textured wide leg pants.

Opting to go sans belt was a good idea here.

It’s great to see her in a colour other than black, however, I can imagine some vivid blues and multi-colour Peter Pilotto-style prints would look just as good on her.

Li Yuchun 李宇春 In Givenchy Couture – ‘A Fistful of Dollars’ Cannes Film Festival Screening & Closing Ceremony

Li Yuchun ??? In Givenchy Couture - 'A Fistful of Dollars' Cannes Film Festival Screening & Closing Ceremony

Li Yuchun attended the Closing Ceremony and ‘A Fistful of Dollars’ screening during the 67th Annual Cannes Film Festival this evening (May 24) in Cannes, France.

Opting, yet again, for a more masculine outfit, the singer donned an all-black Givenchy Couture piece created by Riccardo Tisci.

The jumpsuit, with built-in open-toe shoes, displays its Couture craftsmanship via the intricate embroidered details.

Along with simple makeup, Li Yuchun completed her look with an onyx statement ring.

While she has stuck to black this time around at Cannes, both looks have been interesting and captivating.

Li Yuchun 李宇春 In Stéphane Rolland Couture – ‘Clouds Of Sils Maria’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

"Sils Maria" Premiere - The 67th Annual Cannes Film Festival

Li Yuchun aka Chris Lee took to the red carpet this evening (May 23) for the ‘Clouds Of Sils Maria’ premiere held during the 67th Annual Cannes Film Festival in Cannes, France.

The L’Oreal ambassador was first introduced to us last year, and then, just like now, she made a dramatic appearance on the red carpet.

Li Yuchun wore a unique Stéphane Rolland Spring 2014 Couture black jumpsuit featuring a cape detail around the neckline that cascades down the back into a full train.

This is the type of Stéphane Rolland Couture look I love to see at these events: bold, captivating and totally dominating the red carpet.

Considering her height, Li Yuchun pulled this piece off really well.

A selection of silver jewels and black patent pumps completed her look.

Li Yuchun In Comme Des Garçons – Rebecca Wigs Launch Event

Li Yuchun In Comme Des Garçons - Rebecca Wigs Launch Event

Li Yuchun joined Zhang Yuqi on the red carpet for the Rebecca Wigs launch event in Beijing, China on Tuesday.

Working yet another androgynous look, the singer wore a Comme des Garçons Fall 2013 short suit featuring a wide-lapel blazer with rosette detailing and turned-up pinstriped shorts with folds and cuts.

Keeping the styling of her complicated look simple, she added a white shirt and white lace-up brogues.

Unlike Yuqi, Yuchun opted out of wearing a wig on this occasion.

Do you like Yuchun’s styling of her look, or should she have gone for a complete runway look?

Li Yuchun In Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci – ‘Why Me’ Tour

Li Yuchun in GbRT - Look 4

Li Yuchun, aka Chris Lee, came to our attention during Cannes Film Festival earlier this year. She has a fan base which eclipses Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus combined, several times over.

So it was not a surprise that when her ‘Why Me’ concert was announced, tickets sold out instantly.

Having showcased her androgynous sartorial style in Cannes, Riccardo Tisci rose to the challenge of creating five customs for the singer, an honour which has also been recently bestowed upon Rihanna and Beyonce.

From bold flame prints to the haute couture organza cape and the hand-embroidered skirt worn over tuxedo pants, the looks all referenced Tisci’s most iconic collections for Givenchy.

The looks matched his long-term obsession with the masculine–feminine contrast, which is why it was so apt that he designed this wardrobe for Li Yuchun as she embodies that contrast perfectly.

Li Yuchun In Lanvin & Versace – MTV EMAs 2013

Li Yuchun In Lanvin & Versace - MTV EMAsLi Yuchun, aka Chris Lee, snagged the Best Worldwide Act award at the 2013 MTV EMAs at the Ziggo Dome in Amsterdam, Netherlands.

The Chinese mega-star maintained her reputation for her unique, androgynous style with last night’s garb. She was once again in the no-gown-zone, as she walked on the wilder side with a Lanvin Pre-Fall 2013 leopard embellished coat, accented with floral appliqué.

Under the animal print, she packed on the sequins with a shiny black blazer, outlined in gold trim, from the Versace Resort 2014 collection, which she matched to a pair of black leather-look shorts and a white collar dress shirt.

A sparkling, star-shaped necklace was a fitting accoutrement for this pop singer and actress, whereas black thigh-high, flat Riccardo Tisci for Givenchy boots completed the spirited sartorial entrance that was equal parts rocker-boy and rebel-girl.

If anyone can handle this strong, statement look, it’s Li. Tough-luxe or just too much?

Tilda Swinton & Li Yuchun In Chanel – Chanel’s ‘The Little Black Jacket’ Exhibition

Tilda Swinton & Li Yuchun In Chanel - Chanel's 'The Little Black Jacket’ Exhibition

From Beijing to Shanghai, Chanel’s ‘The Little Black Jacket’ exhibition keeps on rolling.

On Thursday, local and international stars came out to support the event, including Tilda Swinton and mega star Li Yuchun, who I had said during Cannes Film Festival reminded me of the British actress with her androgynous style.

Tilda Swinton: Dialling down the androgyny, Tilda, who was the first person to wear a look from Chanel’s Resort 2014 collection, selected a white sequin tulle dress from that same collection. It’s been a while since we last saw her wear a dress. Even during Cannes Film Festival she wore two trousered looks. Her loose-fitted dress with an embroidered front was styled with white Chanel pumps and barely there, approaching zero makeup.

Li Yuchun: The singer, who also didn’t wear a dress during Cannes, opted for a look from Chanel’s Fall 2013 collection, donning a heavy-looking black-and-white herringbone jacket with braided trims styled with black Chanel jeans and a white high-collared shirt from the Pre-Fall 2013 collection. The final touch came via her black Chanel boots and a silver chain necklace. Is there a little too much going on, or did she pull this off? I think she pulls it off effortlessly.
