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.

Shu Qi In Tory Burch – Sands Macao One Year Anniversary Celebration

Shu Qi In Tory Burch S13 - Sands Macao One Year Anniversary Celebration

Since we were first introduced to Shu Qi during the 2009 Cannes Film Festival, we have been captivated by her effortless style and beauty.

Last Thursday, the Asian beauty attended the Sands Macao one-year-anniversary celebrations in Macau, China.

She looked divine, wearing a Tory Burch Spring 2013 gown.

Complementing the gold backdrop, she opted to keep the styling of her yellow embroidered dress with a sheer honeycomb embroidered organza overlay and a side slit to a minimum, with a silver bracelet and side-swept waves.

Her overall look is much more visually pleasing compared to the over-accessorized runway look.

Christian Dior Spring 2013 Couture Shanghai Fashion Show

Dior Shanghai Spring 2013 Couture

As Asia is such an important market for fashion brands, Christian Dior headed east to present their Spring 2013 Haute Couture collection at Five on the Bund in Shanghai, China on Saturday, inviting several of our favourite Asian actresses who all wore looks from the Dior Spring 2013 ready-to-wear collection.

Zhang Ziyi: The Asian superstar took her front-row seat wearing a look from the Spring 2013 ready-to-wear collection, which has been so successful on the red carpet. She selected a yellow-gold paillette dress with a layered tulle overlay. This look would’ve been amazing if she had worn the runway belt. As presented, Zhang looks very boxy.

Shu Qi: Taking a more masculine approach, Shu Qi wore a Dior charcoal-grey tuxedo dress with notched lapels and a pleated skirt with shimmering blue and pink panels. Not only do I not get the dress, but I also don’t understand the styling choice of adding patterned tights. A very rare miss for Shu Qi.

Angelababy: Even Angelababy can’t make this collection work. All I see here is a lot of fabric posing as a tri-coloured strapless Dior dress, and a solid effort to lift the look with pink Dior sandals and a grey Miss Dior bag; sadly, those efforts are to no avail.

Sun Li: The actress is the only one who gets a pass from me. While we have seen this Dior strapless tuxedo dress before on Allison Williams, this is the only dress that worked on this red carpet; of course, it is hard to go wrong with an LBD.

Do any of these looks work for you? In answer to my own question, “No.”
