Shu Qi In Valentino – 50th Golden Horse Awards

Shu Qi In Valentino – 50th Golden Horse Awards

Shu Qi wore a second Valentino look during the 50th Golden Horse Awards held at Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall in Taipei, Taiwan on Saturday evening.

Her second look was a long-sleeved red wool gown featuring a contrast collar and yoke, contrast buttoned cuffs, a sheer organza insert at the bust and an inverted pleat at the front.

While she didn’t opt for the runway’s ladylike pearls, she did add a bejewelled brooch to the neckline which, for me, works better than the pearls by enlivening the look.

I prefer Shu Qi’s red-carpet Couture gown as I can’t say I ever loved this gown on the runway. Shu’s presentation of this look is great, but not one I will be considering for my BDOTW.

Shu Qi In Valentino Couture - 50th Golden Horse Awards

Shu Qi was one of the many Asian A-list stars to take to the red carpet for the 50th Golden Horse Awards held at Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall in Taipei, Taiwan yesterday evening.

The actress wore a Valentino Fall 2013 Couture gown featuring a velvet v-neck bodice with a gold print brocade full skirt.

This gown was on my wish list for Keira Knightley, however, I’m grateful to see this gown on the red carpet sooner rather than later.

While I would lose chunky bracelet, I have to say she carries this look with both the charm and grace I expected from Keira; with a deep berry lip colour and braided updo rounding out her look.

Shu Qi In Valentino – 2013 Bazaar Stars Charity Night

Shu Qi In Valentino - 2013 Bazaar Stars Charity Night

Shu Qi attended the 2013 Bazaar Stars Charity Night held at the China World Summit Wing in Beijing, China yesterday evening alongside Fan Bingbing.

Sheer was clearly the trend of the night as Qi wore a long-sleeved sheer mesh Valentino Fall 2013 gown.

Her sheer, yet not revealing, gown featured a standard collar, pleating at the A-line waist, buttoned cuffs and intricate tonal embroidery throughout.

I love the romantic delicateness of the look, but I can understand if there are a few among you who would consider this too stuffy with the high neckline and long sleeves.

Shu Qi In Calla – Jimmy Choo Store Opening Ceremony

Shu Qi In Calla - Jimmy Choo store opening ceremony

Shu Qi attended the Jimmy Choo store opening ceremony at Finance Street in Hong Kong yesterday evening.

The actress’ Jimmy Choo accessories included a crystal-accented ‘Charlize’ clutch and ‘Anouk’ pointy pumps as expected; however, the same can’t be said for her dress.

On this occasion, the usually conservative star wore a Calla Spring 2013 printed frock with a gauze sheer insert at the waist.

It’s a cute, fun, flirty look, but the dress doesn’t sit as well as it does on the model and the top half is also revealing a touch of boob.

I could’ve overlooked most of the flaws to give Shu a pass for stepping outside the box, but why oh why is she wearing nude tights?

And what’s up with the Paris Hilton pose?

Shu Qi In Alexander McQueen – Roger Vivier Hangzhou Store Opening

Shu Qi In Alexander McQueen - Roger Vivier HangZhou Store Opening

Shu Qi attended the Roger Vivier Hangzhou store opening in China on Saturday.

The actress would’ve stood out wearing a bold hued Alexander McQueen jacquard sunflower yellow dress with a tonal honeycomb and bee pattern throughout which was a signature of the Spring 2013 collection.

Her dress also featured exaggerated off the shoulder detail and a deep curved V neckline giving the sweet dress a sexy edge.

Supporting the Roger Vivier’s opening Shu Qi accessorized her look with a mini ‘Prismick’ shoulder bag and ‘Bibendum’ sandals.
