46th Golden Horse Awards

Hong Kong actress Maggie Cheung looked stunning walking the red carpet wearing an Elie Saab Fall 2009 Couture gown, from the designers all white collection.

I love the dress with it’s one sleeve to the feathered hem.

I understand why Maggie would have wanted a belt to break up all that white, but why did it have to be that cream Alaia belt?

This kinda ruins this look for me.

I love this picture of Taiwanese-French actress Sandrine Pinna.

Firstly because she looks adorable in her ruffled Lanvin Resort 2010 strapless dress, but also because she appears to be mimicking the runway picture by standing on one leg.

Lanvin bow-front satin pumps complete her look.

I don’t normally think of Lanvin pieces as sexy, but Hu Tingting certain gives this dress with a very thigh-high split that appeal.

A strappy sandal would’ve have made this look even sexier.

Vivian Hsu opted for a beautiful necklace with her Chanel Resort 2010 black dress.

You may remember that Blake Lively recently wore this same dress with a similar necklace to the Chanel “Fete D’Hiver” Fall Gala.

We’re seeing more and more Salvatore Ferragamo on the red carpets in Asia, and I’m so happy about this as we don’t see enough of the brand elsewhere.

Michelle Chen opted for this nude strapless dress with a criss cross detail on the bodice from the Fall 2009 collection.

I just love the way she politely holds her Bottega Veneta clutch.

I’m glad she decided against the shimmering turtle-neck with the brown cuffs.

Ivy Chen also looked adorable wearing a white Christian Dior Spring 2008 strapless dress with a floral detail on the bodice.

I totally understand why people keep going back to this Spring 2008 collection, because it one of Galliano’s best for Dior.

As much as I love the pop of colour from Momoco Tao’s aqua strapless draped Lanvin Resort 2010 dress, I’m like a bull to a red flag in lust for her red YSL eel skin pumps heels.

I’m drooling.

Model Lynn Hung has the perfect proportions to pull off this stunning canary yellow Valentino Fall 2009 plunging gown.

I’m getting a Dior vibe from Li Bingbing’s whie gown, which is very similar to Marion Cotillard’s from the “Nine” New York premiere.

Like Marion, Li looks absolutely beautiful.

A chic updo and that emerald necklace perfect this look.

I was convinced that Shu Qi’s gown was from the Ralph Lauren Fall 2009 collection, but on closer inspection it appears that the two gowns are just very similar.

The 2009 Cannes Film Festival judge glows in her shimmering strapless gown.

Prudence Liew added a bit of sass to this event full of cute dresses and event appropriate gowns.

I love her leather strapless dress with its ruffles and folded details.

The look is completed with a pair of Gucci Iman heels.

What a fabulous event. Thanks to all those who directed me to it.

Who Wore Roberto Cavalli Better? Shu Qui or Elisabetta Canalis

George Clooney has a new girlfriend, so that must means he has a new movie to promote.

Elisabetta Canalis is George’s current flavour of this red carpet season, and the genetically blessed couple looked outstanding walking their first red carpet together at “The Men Who Stare At Goats” premiere during Venice Film Festival.

Him in a dark suit, and her in a stunning teal Roberto Cavalli strapless teal gown with black peep-toes and a black clutch.

Her Cinderella moment would’ve been so perfect had Shu Qi not worn the same dress 5 months ago.

The 2009 Cannes Film Festival judge Cavalli gown to the “UP” premiere with a diamond necklace.

I was considering giving this win to Elisabetta as I love the colour against her skin, but then I noticed the tattoo on her arm and moved my vote to Shu.

2009 China Huabiao Film Awards

She’s back.

Zhang Ziyi it back on top form after being outshone by her co-stars and failing to impress on recent red carpet outings.

Zhang arrived at this event wearing Chanel Couture Spring 2009 dress – rather than her usual Armani – looking absolutely breath-taking.

Unfortunately I couldn’t find a full-length picture, but it’s all about her stunning dress with it’s floral appliqués and black sequin stripes.

Fine silver jewelry complement her delicate look.

Definitely a BDOTW contender.

Fan Bingbing usually wears a lot of girlie colours especially pinks, but on this occasion she wore a dark olive Givenchy Fall 2009 layered floor length Georgette gown.

The one-sleeve gown had a padded shoulder, a draping panel on front, and half a peplum.

A high up ‘do covered with a head wrap or turban, with a long wrap-around leaf detailed necklace, a black bangle and black ankle strap heels completes this edgier look for the beautiful actress.

It’s not often we see two Chanel Couture looks on the red carpet at once, but Zhou Xun also wore a dress from the Chanel Spring 2009 Couture collection.

Her ivory creation was minus the runway collar, but Zhou added a statement necklace to her strapless ensemble.

I love the look both ways, but I like that the actress made the look more interesting for us by modifying from the runway look.

Pearl pumps completed the look.

Shu Qi who you will remember as one of the judges from the 2009 Cannes Film Festival, walked the red carpet wearing a strapless pink Salvatore Ferragamo Spring 2009 satin gown.

The gown was gathered above the waist with a circular silver clasp, which complemented her silver necklace.

Walking to the venue we were able to get a glimpse of Shu’s Roger Vivier heels.

I haven’t seen as much Christian Dior on the red carpet as I would have hoped this year, but Carina Lau fulfills my requirement wearing a Christian Dior Fall 2009 fuchsia pink Indian inspired gown covered in exquisite embellishments.

Again this is not a full-length photo, but Carina more than does this gown justice, pairing it with a stand out Dior clutch but keeping jewels to a minimum to let the gown do all the talking.

Chiling Lin showed off her amazing figure wearing a Salvatore Ferragamo Fall 2009 gown.

She makes this backless plunging gown look like a well crafted piece of art sculptured to her body.

I’m sure she left jaws dropping in her wake of her stunning beauty.

Diamond earrings were all she needed to add to this look.

2009 Cannes Film Festival – “Coco Chanel & Igor Stravinsky” Premiere

Much better.

I hadn’t been a fan of Kerry Washington’s two previous looks, but she sure knows how to make me fall in love again.

She arrived on the red carpet wearing a flesh coloured Zuhair Murad Spring 2009 gown, covered in navy blue floral embellishments and a velvet navy ribbon.

We’ve seen this silhouette a lot at Cannes, but her floor-sweeping fishtail tulle train added to the overall glamour of the look.

Her bouffant was bouncy with beautiful tumbling curls, whilst her make-up kept light.

Myleene Klass wore a very similar version of this gown last week.

Charlotte Gainsbourg won the best actress prize at the Cannes Film Festival last night for her role as a grieving mother in the film ‘Antichrist’.

She arrived at this premiere with her husband wearing a gold studded Balenciaga Resort 2009 shortened dress, which she wore with black strappy Balenciaga heels.

I love her carefree approach to fashion.

Asia Argento has had a fantastic run on the red carpet at Cannes, and it seems her preferred collections were from Roberto Cavalli and Armani Privé.

She picked another outstanding Armani Privé Spring 2009 gown for this premiere.

It had a sculptural detail on the shoulder and the skirt, which then trails off into a stunning train.

Her heels compliment the gown, and I love the print which lines inside of this magnificent gown.

Georgina Chapman wore a satin-faced silk organza dress from her Marchesa Spring 2009 collection, which is architecturally pleated to dramatic effect but it looks slightly flat whilst standing so close too her husband.

Satin Louboutin’s complete the look.

Isabelle Huppert and Asia, will have to fight it out for the honour of ‘Queen of Couture’ at this years Cannes Film Festival. Both have worn such magnificent pieces.

Isabelle has worn some cutting edge and risqué pieces, but on this occasion she opted for a Spring 2009 Chanel Couture gown which was so elegant, delicate, and sophisticated.

Zhang Ziyi looked like a fairytale princess in this wonderful blush pink paillette covered gown, which was cut very low at the back.

Her gown was paired with a silver clutch, and she may have been inspired Paris Hilton as she wore a jeweled hair accessory.

When I saw Robin Wright Penn wearing this shimmering sheer black gown, the first person to come to mind was Sharon Stone.

That’s not a good thing.

Shu Qi’s blue one-shouldered Roberto Cavalli gown was embellished around waist, and on the shoulder strap with black crystals.

Her sapphire blue earrings and ring, complimented her gown beautifully.

Anna Mouglalis wore an eye-catching green satin gown, with an exaggerating bow, as she smoldered for the cameras.

Who Wore Roberto Cavalli Better? Kimberley Walsh or Shu Qi

At this years Brit Awards, Kimberley Walsh arrived with her Girls Aloud band mates, wearing a white plunging Roberto Cavalli Spring 2009 gown, with gold chain trims.

She looked so glamourous, and sexy with the cut-out details showing off her sun-kissed skin.

Taiwanese actress Shu Qi attended the Inglourious Basterds Premiere during Cannes Film Festival wearing the same dress, but for me having much less impact, despite looking beautiful in the gown.

Kimberley’s curves make this dress so much more appealing, so she wins for me.
