Best Dressed of The Week - Zhang Ziyi In Valentino Couture & Pace Wu In Ulyana Sergeenko Couture

You guys weren’t crazy about either Zhang Ziyi’s Lanvin look or her Giambattista Valli Couture gown; however, you fell head over heels in love with her Valentino Couture cape dress.

I had a much harder time picking a favourite, with Miroslava, Rinko, Naomie and Sandra all impressing, but my final winner was the gorgeous Pace Wu in Ulyana Sergeenko Couture.

Zhang Ziyi In Giambattista Valli Couture – Le Grand Bal De La Comedie Francaise

Zhang Ziyi In Giambattista Valli Couture - Le Grand Bal De La Comedie Francaise

Zhang Ziyi attended Le Grand Bal De La Comedie Francaise held at La Comedie Francaise in Paris, France yesterday evening.

As you know, the Giambattista Valli Fall 2013 Couture show took place on Monday evening, and despite not attending the show, Ziyi snagged the first piece literally right off the runway.

Her strapless white couture gown with a long train and colourful floral appliqués had a very regal feel to it, so in keeping with the runway styling she opted to wear a Luigi Scialanga for Giambattista Valli gold tiara.

You guys have found Ziyi’s red carpet looks very hit and miss over the last few weeks, so does this return to her princessy ways get her back in your good books?

Valentino Fall 2013 Couture Front Row

Valentino Fall 2013 Couture Front Row

The front row of the Valentino Fall 2013 Couture presentation was nearly as drama-doused as the runway, as an array of lovelies let loose their fashion fantasies at the Hotel Salomon de Rothschild on Wednesday in Paris, France.

Olivia Palermo: Mingling hard and soft, Olivia is perhaps one of the few who can work a fluffy, frothy black tube frock, worn over a structured white button-down blouse, to her ultimate advantage. Never far from piles of accessories, she topped off her statement with a bronze and black gemstone necklace, statement cuffs, and a Valentino studded carved transparent clutch.

Zhang Ziyi: Giving us a red-haute moment, the Chinese actress stunned in a Valentino Spring 2013 Couture cape gown, worn with Christian Louboutin heels, Boucheron jewels and an Omega timepiece. The sophisticated, old-Hollywood spirit of this silhouette had me at hello.

Miroslava Duma: Many of you will be glad to see that Mira wore Valentino at the designer’s show, taking a bold step in this lapis-blue Valentino Fall 2013 frock. While her black tights and chunky-funky platform sandals could have raised some eyebrows, they really only served to draw even more attention to this retro-shift dress’s sublime saturated hue—and her red lippie.

Zhang Ziyi In Lanvin – Lancôme Show by Alber Elbaz Party

Zhang Ziyi In Lanvin – Lancôme Show by Alber Elbaz Party

Zhang Ziyi joined Gemma Arterton and Pace Wu on the red carpet for the ‘Lancôme Show by Alber Elbaz’ party, held at Le Trianon in Paris, France yesterday evening during Haute Couture week.
Like everyone else at this event, she wore a Lanvin dress.

Her white frothy creation was selected from the Resort 2014 collection, to which she added a cropped Lanvin tuxedo jacket with satin lapels which prevents the look from feeling too saccharine.

To add even more of an edge to her look, she accessorized with a ruby-stoned Lanvin necklace, a bow-accented leather belt, Repossi rings and earrings, plus the ultimate accessories when toughening up a look: Christian Louboutin spiked heels.

The two dominant pieces of this look for me are the necklace and the shoes. I wish she had opted for one or the other. I would take the shoes over the necklace, as much as I love the statement piece.

Most of you really disliked her previous Chloe look, so does this look get Ziyi back in your good graces?

Zhang Ziyi In Chloé – X Factor China Finale

Zhang Ziyi Chloe X Factor China

Following her conservative look for the ‘Chevalier De L’Ordre Des Arts Et Des Lettres’ Awards, Zhang Ziyi opted for something more theatrical for the X Factor China finale, where she serves as a judge.

On this occasion her look was from the Chloé Fall 2013 collection. She selected a black sheer polka-dot blouse with a white collar and placket over a black lace bustier, paired with a frothy sheer polka-dot tiered skirt accented with an Alaïa studded belt.

The contrast of these pieces couldn’t be more different; you have a risqué top paired with a fairytale-like skirt.

I have to say this one took a while to grow on me; however, the belt remains my biggest issue as it doesn’t allow the naughty and nice aspects of this look to flow fluidly.

Yet another pair of white pumps, this time courtesy of Saint Laurent, Butler & Wilson jewels and her H. Stern ring completed her look.

I have a feeling this will be a marmite look, so do you love it or hate it?
