Yao Chen In Georges Hobeika Couture – ‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey’ World Premiere

Yao Chen joined Cate Blanchett on the red carpet this evening in Wellington, New Zealand for the world premiere of ‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey’.

The actress clearly didn’t want to go unnoticed on the red carpet, so she donned a beautiful Georges Hobeika Fall 2012 Couture ball gown.

This stunning look fills the void left by Zhang Ziyi, who used to be our go-to gal for pretty ball gowns.

Yao’s powder-blue tulle strapless ball gown with velvet touches and intricate embroidery details on the skirt gave me chills.

I’m typing covered in goosebumps as you know I live for a princess moment.

A small Kotur clutch, a half-up, half-down hairstyle and Bulgari drop earrings completed her BDOTW-worthy look.

I’m at a loss for words as to how spectacular this gown is.

Take a look at the close up to see Yao is sporting cute Elf ears.

Yao Chen In Georges Hobeika Couture – L’Officiel 2012 China Elegance Awards

L’Officiel 2012 China Elegance Awards took place at the National Aquatic Center in Beijing, China, last week.

Yao Chen wore a Georges Hobeika Fall 2012 Couture cocktail dress.

Her heavenly periwinkle-blue lace dress was enriched with Swarovski beads and organza-and-velvet floral appliqués.

Such a beautiful dress deserves a delicate shoe, so you can imagine my horror to be faced with her cobalt-blue Christian Louboutin ‘Daffodile’ pumps.

I mean…what was she thinking?

In fact the Bulgari clutch, recently carried by Zhang Ziyi, doesn’t work with this look either for me.

Pretty dress let down by awful styling.

You may remember that Brittany Snow wore this same dress last month.

Yao Chen In Chanel – 2012 Bazaar Charity Night

Yao Chen attended the 10th Bazaar China Charity For Life event in Beijing, China, on Saturday evening.

While so many stars opted for black or navy, Yao wore a white Chanel Resort 2013 dress.

The jacquard dress with a fluted skirt was styled with silver-and-blue Jil Sander slingbacks and Pomellato jewels.

A Chanel embellished chain-accented bag, from the Chanel Paris-Bombay Pre-Fall 2012 collection, was the perfect way to complete this BDOTW-worthy look.

Yao Chen In Prabal Gurung – Mr Li Jian’s Beijing Concert

Yao Chen made an appearance at Mr Li Jian’s Beijing Concert in China last week.

The Asian actress looked heavenly wearing a dress from Prabal Gurung’s Pre-Fall 2012 collection.

I adore everything about this look, which works perfectly against her pale skin tone.

Her pale-rose v-neck tulle dress with burnt opalescent paillettes and sequins was styled with complementary silver accessories including a bangle, a leather belt and heels.

I see this as a BDOTW contender.

Do you?

Yao Chen In Philosophy di Alberta Ferretti – 2012 Marie Claire Gala Ceremony

Yao Chen attended the 2012 Marie Claire Gala ceremony held in Beijing, China, on Friday.

The actress wore a nude Philosophy di Alberta Ferretti Fall 2012 dress with silver embellished details.

Thankfully the colour of the dress isn’t too pale; otherwise it would’ve washed her out.

Whilst I’m desperately missing the runway belt, Yao does opt for some interesting accessories which included a silver box clutch and on-trend pvc pumps with a silver toe-cap.

A sleek centre-parted hairstyle and a nude lip colour provided the finishing touches.

Yao Chen In Jil Sander – Montblanc New And Biggest Concept Store World Premiere

Yao Chen joined Maggie Cheung and Jessica Alba on the red carpet for the world premiere of the Montblanc New And Biggest Concept Store In The World in Beijing, China on Saturday.

The actress looked stunning wearing a simple Jil Sander Spring 2012 gown.

Her white strapless gown was styled with a simple Montblanc necklace, which was complementary to her look. A similar necklace had the opposite effect on Maggie’s look.

This is a very pretty look, but I was floored (not in a good way) to see that she had added black Sergio Rossi heels to her ice white gown.

The sky-blue runway heels were perfect for this look.

A sleek ponytail, a white timepiece, natural nails and shimmering lip colour provided the finishing touches.

Yao Chen In Jil Sander – Mmax Future Pictures Festival

Yao Chen attended the Mmax Future Pictures Festival at Guoan Theater in Beijing, China, yesterday evening.

The actress opted for a very girlie laidback look.

She wore a Jil Sander Spring 2012 graphic-print sweater with mint flared shorts.

Usually a cross-body bag on the red carpet brings me out in a cold sweat, but her Chanel floral leather bag works with the relaxed vibe of her look.

Pink ankle-strap peep-toes and a bracelet provided the finishing touches.
