Zhang Ziyi In Rubin Singer – ‘The Crossing’ Cannes Film Festival Party

Zhang Ziyi In Rubin Singer - 'The Crossing' Cannes Film Festival Party

Actress Zhang Ziyi took to the red carpet on day four (May 17) of the Cannes Film Festival as she attended the party for new film ‘The Crossing’.

Steering away from her usual monochromatic and understated palette, Zhang brought a welcome pop of colour in a canary yellow Rubin Singer long-sleeved column dress which highlighted her elegantly lean figure.

Zhang added an unexpected hit of colour in the form of a red perspex box bag and finished the look with a sparkling cocktail ring and huge drop earrings. While these accessories are all great in their own right, all together they jar and I’m not sure the mix of modern and traditional works too well.

I must admit, I’m not blown away by this look. While her complexion is flawless and it is undoubtedly a polished look, I can’t help but feel like this dress looks is a little dated, and I can’t really get on board with the ruching around the shoulder pads.

But what do you think?

Zhang Ziyi In Stéphane Rolland Couture – ‘Grace of Monaco’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere & Opening Ceremony

Opening Ceremony and "Grace Of Monaco" Premiere - The 67th Annual Cannes Film Festival

Zhang Ziyi took to the red carpet for the 67th Annual Cannes Film Festival opening ceremony and the ‘Grace of Monaco’ premiere this evening (May 14).

If you were expecting a princess gown, prepare to be disappointed because the Asian beauty hit a fashion home run in this Stéphane Rolland Spring 2014 Couture futuristic design.

I suppose it won’t be to everyone’s taste, but I love the juxtaposition of the edgy detailed bodice and the white skirt with the gently cascading ruffle.

Black Brian Atwood pumps, a black and white Bochic ‘Alicia’ clutch and Chopard jewels completed her look.

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?
