Yao Chen 姚晨 In Elie Saab - 14th Chinese Media Awards

Yao Chen attended the 14th Chinese Media Awards on Saturday (October 11) in Beijing, China.

The actress looked as graceful as ever wearing an Elie Saab Fall 2014 gown in a rich burgundy hue.

I love how the asymmetric neckline and the waist are panelled with velvet, making this a dramatic choice for both her and the event.

So often these events can be full of princess gowns, so I love this more sultry choice styled with a tricoloured star-motif Kotur clutch.

Yao Chen 姚晨 In J. Mendel – Huayi Brothers 20th Anniversary Celebrations

Yao Chen ?? In J Mendel – Huayi Brothers 20th Anniversary Celebrations

Yao Chen attended the Huayi Brothers 20th anniversary celebrations in Hainan Province, China on Saturday (June 7) following the handprint ceremony earlier in the day.

The Chinese actress looked beautiful wearing a J. Mendel 2014 Pre-Fall 2014 hammered satin pink strapless column gown featuring a bustier-style boned bodice with asymmetrical pleating, and an asymmetrical wrap-front construction.

She could’ve played it safe with matching accessories or the standard nude or black; instead she enlivened the look with fuchsia-pink Jimmy Choo pumps and a matching Smythson clutch.

Yao Chen 姚晨 In Gucci – Huayi Brothers 20th Anniversary Celebrations

Yao Chen ?? In Gucci - Huayi Brothers 20th Anniversary Celebrations

Yao Chen attended the Huayi Brothers 20th anniversary celebrations in Hainan Province, China on Saturday (June 7), which started with a handprint ceremony.

The gorgeous Chinese actress wore a mustard-coloured Gucci Fall 2014 mini dress featuring a leather criss-cross bodice and a crepe A-line skirt.

Her pretty look was styled with Christian Louboutin ‘Pina Spike’ ankle-strap peep-toes and Pomellato jewels.

While I love the dress and the edge given to it via the heels, the jewellery doesn’t work for me here. The pieces don’t blend well or complement the look in any way for me.

You may remember that Charlotte Casiraghi wore this same dress last week in blue with far less fussy accessories.

You can buy Yao’s Christian Louboutin ‘Pina Spike’ Sandals from Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman.

Who Wore Miu Miu Better…Yao Chen or Elle Fanning?

Who Wore Miu Miu Better Yao Chen or Elle Fanning

Yao Chen wore a black-and-white musical-note print Miu Miu Resort 2014 mini dress to the premiere of her latest flick ‘Firestorm’ back in December.

Styled with fiery Sergio Rossi heels and sleek tresses, her look couldn’t have been more appropriately styled.

Elle Fanning wore the same dress last month, adding a white Rodarte Fall 2012 leather jacket and ankle boots, which killed the look for me.

Toughening up this look wasn’t the way to go, so Yao Chen wins for me.

Yao Chen In Miu Miu – ‘Firestorm’ Hong Kong Premiere

Yao Chen In Miu Miu - 'Firestorm' Hong Kong Premiere

Capping off a busy weekend, Yao Chen attended the ‘Firestorm’ premiere held at Garden Court on Sunday (December 15) in Hong Kong wearing her third look of the weekend.

Hitting all the right style notes, she wore a musical-note black-and-white Miu Miu Resort 2014 sleeveless frock with a scooped neckline which is considerably more playful than her previous looks.

What I love most about this look is her Sergio Rossi gladiator sandals from the Spring 2014 collection: they spell out the name of the movie, plus they add an unexpected twist to her flirty frock.
