Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Even with her elf ears, we were swept away by Yao Chen’s Georges Hobeika Couture gown.

Some of you were put off by the fact that she chose such an elaborate gown for a daytime premiere, but the rest of us – who crave princess moments on the red carpet – instantly fell in love with her periwinkle-blue strapless gown.

When it came to the guys, our picks differed.

You opted for the handsome Joseph Gordon-Levitt in Gucci, while I was floored by how handsome Peter Facinelli looked in his Tommy Hilfiger grey suit.

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.

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 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 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 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.
