Zhang Ziyi In Ralph Lauren – The Royal Marsden Dinner

Zhang Ziyi In Ralph Lauren - The Royal Marsden DinnerZhang Ziyi was in attendance at a dinner to celebrate the work of The Royal Marsden, hosted by the Duke of Cambridge at Windsor Castle in Windsor, England on Tuesday (May 13).

The Asian star worked her flair for the dramatic in a Ralph Lauren Fall 2014 gown, rendered in a powdery shade of dove grey and dusted with lightly glittering beading.

She further enhanced the dress with a matching feathered wrap, which echoed the soft silhouette that cascaded into a sea of organza overlay at the bottom.

It was a regal impression, fitting for a dinner with the Duke.

Zhang Ziyi In Carolina Herrera – 2014 Beijing International Film Festival Closing Ceremony

Zhang Ziyi In Carolina Herrera - 2014 Beijing International Film Festival Closing Ceremony

Zhang Ziyi attended the closing ceremony of the 2014 Beijing International Film Festival held at BTV Theater on Wednesday (April 23) in Beijing, China, where she picked up her 10th best actress award for ‘The Grandmaster’.

The actress wore a dramatic Carolina Herrera Pre-Fall 2014 jacquard trench gown with an elegant, full-skirted silhouette, patterned with a multicoloured rose print and tailored with an open neckline.

This head-turning look is a bold move for Ziyi, who started this festival in a soft hue. I love how daring and dramatic this look is without being over the top or forgoing its femininity.

A neat updo and complementary fuchsia lip rounded out her look.

Zhang Ziyi In Zuhair Murad Couture – 4th Beijing Film Festival Opening Ceremony

Zhang Ziyi In Zuhair Murad Couture - 4th Beijing Film Festival Opening Ceremony

Zhang Ziyi took to the stage for the opening ceremony of the 4th Beijing International Film Festival held at China’s National Grand Theatre on Wednesday (April 16) in Beijing, China.

Changing out of her Elie Saab red carpet jumpsuit, the actress outdid herself, wearing a stunning Zuhair Murad Spring 2014 Couture gown.

This was my favourite couture show of the season, and I’m delighted to see so many pieces making their way off the runway and onto the red carpet.

Ziyi looked radiant in her long-sleeved fully beaded gold gown featuring a long train.

Some may be suffering a tinge of disappointment that this beauty wasn’t worn on the red carpet, but I’m just grateful that I can’t see what shoes she’s wearing under this gown.

Of the two looks, which do you prefer: this glamorous, somewhat expected gown or the sleek Elie Saab jumpsuit?

Zhang Ziyi In Elie Saab – 4th Beijing Film Festival

Zhang Ziyi In Elie Saab - 4th Beijing Film Festival

Zhang Ziyi attended the 4th Beijing International Film Festival at China’s National Grand Theatre on Wednesday (April 16) in Beijing, China.

Opting for a look equally as glamorous as her Hong Kong Film Awards outing, the actress selected an Elie Saab Pre-Fall 2014 jumpsuit.

The creamy hue and delicate embellishments led the way, with a simple updo and Jimmy Choo ‘Sweetie’ clutch completing the look.

While I prefer this more streamline offering for it’s younger, more modern feel, those shoes are like a knife to the heart (and the eyeballs).

Would you agree?

Stripper heels and Elie Saab? What was she thinking?

Zhang Ziyi In Armani Privé – 33rd Hong Kong Film Awards

Zhang Ziyi In Armani Privé - 33rd Hong Kong Film Awards

Zhang Ziyi, nominated in the Best Actress category for her role in ‘The Grandmaster’, graced the red carpet for the 33rd Hong Kong Film Awards on Sunday (April 9) in Hong Kong.

You won’t be surprised to learn that the actress wore an Armani Prive Spring 2014 look, as the Asian actress tends to wear the brand for big occasions, plus she was front row at the show back in January to personally pick this piece.

Just last week she wore Armani Privé to the 8th Asian Film Awards , and on this occasion she selected a beaded jacket for some sparkle, with a midnight-blue floor-sweeping skirt giving the look graceful fluidity.

A black clutch, dark pink pumps and a selection of silver jewels provided the finishing touches to her sophisticated look.

I’m delighted to see her back to giving us head-to-toe perfection.
