Zhang Ziyi In Chanel Couture -  'Only God Forgives' Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Zhang Ziyi, who is one of the jury members of this event, seems to be doing a good job filling the void left by her fellow jury member Nicole Kidman (where is she?).

The Asian beauty stunned wearing a Chanel gown from the Fall 2009 collection this evening on the red carpet for the ‘Only God Forgives’ Cannes Film Festival premiere.

Her strapless organza gown, fully embroidered with gold-and-black sequins, also features a flowing chiffon train and satin bow accent around the waist.

Many looks from this collection to hit the red carpet appeared sans train, but this is Cannes — a train is almost a red carpet prerequisite.

Impeccable styling, as we’ve come to expect, included Chanel Joallierie jewels, a Ferragamo ‘Faberge’ egg clutch and Jimmy Choo black peep-toes.

Barely there makeup and a simple bun completed her look.

Do you like the train, or does it feel like an after-thought?

Zhang Ziyi In Valentino Couture - ‘Un Certain Regard’ Jury Dinner

Zhang Ziyi, like many other actresses, continues to shine during Cannes Film Festival.

She was spotted leaving the ‘Un Certain Regard’ jury dinner this weekend wearing a stunning Valentino Spring 2013 Couture dress.

The white sheer-and-lace dress freckled with appliqués was elegantly styled with blush satin Ferragamo pumps and a Jimmy Choo clutch.

I love the addition of the gold belt, which defines the waist and changes the dynamic of the look, as do the rolled-up sleeves.

Pops of red via her lips and nails, plus a divine pair of flower earrings, completed her look.

Zhang Yuqi In Roberto Cavalli & Monique Lhuillier - Cannes Film Festival Premieres

Zhang Yuqi had another busy night during Cannes Film Festival, giving us two more great looks; both were strapless.

‘Inside Llewyn Davis’ Premiere: Early in the evening, she donned a heavenly Roberto Cavalli white mermaid gown featuring a tiered train and fitted bodice. Sweeping her hair to one side, she completed her look with a gold Sergio Rossi clutch and diamond bracelet.

‘Blind Detective’ Premiere: Later that same evening, the Asian beauty, who is fast becoming my favourite newcomer at this event, wore a Monique Lhuillier gown from the designer’s Resort 2013 collection. The strapless gown has that distinctive print we’ve seen worn by Blake Lively and Naomie Harris. On this occasion she braided her glossy tresses, opting to go hands free and styling her look with dangling gold earrings.

The Cavalli is my favourite here. It’s always a delight to see Cavalli Cannes gowns on the red carpet.

Dior Cruise 2014 Celebrity Front Row

The Christian Dior Cruise 2014 presentation took place in Monaco yesterday evening with many celebs taking to the front row to select their red carpet looks first hand.

Jessica Biel: Easily my favourite of the bunch. Jessica seems to have fallen back in love with fashion and it shows in her choice. She selected an ensemble from the Fall 2013 collection featuring a black, pink and white houndstooth print bustier and draped black skirt with a bright pink insert. The most vivid colour came from her pink lip shade which elevated what was already a spectacular look. A side-swept bun, off-white sandals and dazzling David Webb jewels provided the finishing touches.

Marion Cotillard: The French beauty kept her look simple opting for a white Dior trench coat from the Pre-Fall 2013 collection. What I love most about this look are her black Dior pumps with a neon-yellow toe-cap.

Ruth Wilson: The British actress wore a navy strapless bustier silk dress featuring the printed Warhol ‘Femme Head 1958′ artwork and gold ‘High Heel 1956′ embroidery. I love the dress and the styling which included lavender pumps and a navy-blue clutch, however, her hair and makeup and overall dishevelment puts me off this look.

Zhang Ziyi: Representing Asia, Zhang was the picture of elegance wearing a black-and-white look from the Pre-Fall 2013 collection. While the high-low hem isn’t a look we always appreciate. I think the look works really well on this occasion, mostly because the look isn’t too overworked and the styling is kept simple with a black clutch, white pumps and Dior jewels.

Zhang Ziyi In Carolina Herrera - 'The Bling Ring' Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Zhang Ziyi made her third appearance during the Cannes Film Festival this evening for ‘The Bling Ring’ premiere.

With the rain still coming down heavily in France, the actress selected a Fall 2012 gown by Carolina Herrera.

Her black-and-silver painterly print gown with a voluminous skirt styled with a stunning Chanel necklace takes me back to her princess days.

Opting to keep her wig on the headstand this evening, she swept her hair back into a sleek updo with a Jimmy Choo clutch providing the finishing touches to her look.

I’m sure I don’t need to ask you which look you preferred from last night and tonight.

Zhang Ziyi In Giambattista Valli Couture - Jury 'Un Certain Regard' Cannes Film Festival Photocall

We can all breathe a huge sigh of relief as it appears that Zhang Ziyi’s cropped ‘do from last night’s opening ceremony was just a wig.

This morning she returned to the Palais des Festivals for the Jury ‘Un Certain Regard’ photocall during Cannes Film Festival.

She looked exquisite wearing a Giambattista Valli Spring 2013 Couture dress featuring a sheer top and colourful patterned structured skirt with green embroidered leaf details throughout.

Yellow Louboutin pumps complement the hue of her skirt, with gold H.Stern jewels providing the finishing touches.

I know many of you disliked her spirited opening ceremony look, deeming it not worthy of the occasion; should she have swapped her photocall look with her previous look?
