Best Dressed Of The Week – Fan Bingbing In Christopher Bu & Robert Pattinson in Dior Homme

BDOTW 11 may

Fan Bingbing was the clear favourite this week wearing a breath-taking gown by Christopher Bu, who was inspired by the worldly known Chinese ancient imperial palace: the Forbidden City.

Proving that he can scrub up well when the occasion requires, Robert Pattinson looked both polished and handsome in his Dior Homme three-piece tuxedo to take the menswear prize.

Fan Bingbing In Christopher Bu – 2015 Met Gala

Fan Bingbing In Chris by Christopher Bu - 2015 Met Gala

Fan Bingbing took an impressive spin down the red carpet of the ‘China: Through the Looking Glass’ 2015 Met Gala, hosted at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City on Monday (May 4)

Wearing a look from one of her favoured go-to designers, Christopher Bu, the Chinese actress was exquisite in a golden-bronze embellished column gown.

Despite the high-octane shine of the dress, the ornately embroidered, jewel-toned cape was the most riveting piece of the ensemble, which she styled perfectly with Chopard jewels and, of course, a Louis Vuitton clutch.

I was mesmerized by her entrance which was dazzlingly impressive enough for the Met while still walking on the right side of the theme and maintaining an aura of richly refined elegance, unlike some of the ensembles we saw last night.

Fan Bingbing In Chris by Christopher Bu – ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ Beijing Premiere

Fan Bingbing In Chris by Christopher Bu - 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' Beijing Premiere

Fan Bingbing attended the ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ Beijing premiere on Sunday (October 26) in China.

As Bingbing doesn’t star in the movie, the actress opted to dress more casually for the occasion, selecting a Chris by Christopher Bu Fall 2014 printed blue and black shirt dress which is refreshingly laidback yet still feminine.

The accessories didn’t work for me.

Of course she had to be seen with a piece of Louis Vuitton, as the current face of the brand, but I wish she’d opted for a smaller bag or clutch instead of the shoulder bag.

The look was, of course, styled with stacked platform heels.

‘The Walking Dead’ Season 5 LA Premiere

'The Walking Dead' Season 5 LA Premiere

Alanna Masterson, Danai Gurira, Lauren Cohan, Emily Kinney and Sonequa Martin-Green attended the Season 5 premiere of ‘The Walking Dead’ held at AMC Universal City Walk on Thursday (October 2) in Universal City, California.

Alanna Masterson: The actress was the most colourful of the bunch, selecting a Chris by Christopher Bu printed frock. She also opted for printed ankle booties, when a solid pair of orange, yellow or lavender heels would’ve worked perfectly.

Danai Gurira: Also opting for colour and flare, Danai wore a Christian Siriano Resort 2015 striped frock emboldened with a structural skirt. Unlike Alanna, she played it right with the solid accessories including a bronze Rauwolf clutch, berry peep-toes and H.Stern jewels.

Chiling Lin In Chris by Christopher Bu – Longines Event

Chiling Lin In Chris by Christopher Bu - Longines Event

Chiling Lin attended an event hosted by Longines in Guangzhou, China on Tuesday (July 26).

The gorgeous model/actress wore a dress by Fan Bingbing’s favourite designer, Chris by Christopher Bu, selecting a pale-blue off-the-shoulder knee-length dress featuring sweet bow accents on the shoulders.

Sadly, when compared to the lookbook, Chiling’s styling falls a little flat. Just a brown belt alone erases the initial charm.

Silver jewels and a Longines timepiece completed her look.

Fan Bingbing 范冰冰 In Chris by Christopher Bu & Helen Lee – ‘The White Haired Witch of Lunar Kingdom’ Press Conference & Premiere

Fan Bingbing In Chris by Christopher Bu & Helen Lee - 'The White Haired Witch of Lunar Kingdom' Press Conference & Premiere

Fan Bingbing continued to promote her new movie, ‘The White Haired Witch of Lunar Kingdom’, attending two more events.

Beijing Press Conference: You’ll be delighted to see the lack of quadruple-stacked heels on this very rare occasion. The actress wore her Saint Laurent criss-cross platform patent-leather pumps with a pretty blue and black patterned Chris by Christopher Bu Fall 2014 dress with her raven waves tumbling down one side. While her gown choices are a tad on the predictable side, her looks for press conferences are varied and playful.

Beijing Premiere: I am sure you are as shocked as I am that the actress didn’t wear a flowy, embellished gown of the Elie Saab variety for the premiere, instead wearing a Helen Lee Fall 2014 blouson top and skirt in shades of pink and grey which both feature a red-manicured hand holding a rabbit. This may appear strange but the Chinese designer is often inspired by Chinese contemporary artists when creating her collections. Bunny-clutching print aside, I love this look; once again I find it refreshing, with the mint-green Lanvin pumps drawing out the green on her skirt.
