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

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.

Christian Dior Cruise 2014 Front Row

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 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

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?

Zhang Ziyi In Christian Dior Couture – ‘The Great Gatsby’ Premiere & Cannes Film Festival Opening Ceremony

Zhang Ziyi In Christian Dior Couture - ‘The Great Gatsby’ Premiere & Cannes Film Festival Opening Ceremony

Zhang Ziyi used the ‘The Great Gatsby’ Cannes Film Festival premiere, which also serves as the Opening Ceremony this evening, to showcase a new ‘do. Thankfully it wasn’t blonde.

The Asian actress sported a crop pixie cut on the red carpet while wearing a look from the Christian Dior Fall 2012 Couture collection.

Shunning the usually required gown, Zhang’s edgy new ‘do works perfectly with her navy and fuchsia pink-accented strapless top paired with black pants.

I’m not sure the gold metal waistband was required but it doesn’t take anything away from the look.

A navy satin clutch and Christian Louboutin ‘Pivichic’ pumps completed her look.

Yay nor nay on the new ‘do?

Zhang Ziyi In Jason Wu – 2013 Met Gala

Zhang Ziyi In Jason Wu - 2013 Met Gala

Zhang Ziyi looked flawless in Jason Wu at the Met Gala.

The ‘Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon’ actress wore a strapless red-lace, trumpet skirt gown from Jason Wu, and she absolutely radiated as she made her way down the red carpet. She accented the gown with Christian Louboutin jewels, shoes and clutch.

Of course there’s nothing punk here, unless you count her black manicure, but I still love the look.

Her simple cat eye, peachy cheeks and semi-matte nude lips are spot-on, and the gorgeous star is impeccable from top to bottom.

Dolce & Gabbana’s 5th Avenue Boutique Opening

Dolce & Gabbana's 5th Avenue Boutique Opening

The Dolce & Gabbana 5th Avenue Boutique Opening took place on Saturday evening in New York City, where Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana enjoyed a night of traditional Italian hospitality and mingled around the space of the new store, which spans three floors.

Giovanna Battaglia: The fashion editor stood out wearing a stunning red satin fit-and-flare dress with a lace overlay, which she styled with red embellished shoes. She was by far my favourite of the night. I love how she captures the essence of a brand without the theatrics.

Paloma Faith: Speaking of theatrics, the British singer went all out in a full Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2013 look, with the only solid piece of her look being her belt. I do love the fact that she’s not afraid of colour, prints and standing out in a room of black lace dresses. This Dolce & Gabbana look featuring a ‘Trio’ of Knight’ dress might not go down too well, but I love her boldness. You may remember that Zhang Zilin wore this same dress earlier this year.

Bianca Brandolini D’Adda: We usually associate Dolce & Gabbana with black lace dresses, but Giovanna and Bianca embraced red lace on this occasion. The socialite donned a bell-sleeved mini dress with a black overlay, styling her look with a black Dolce & Gabbana ponyskin clutch and red embellished sandals.
