Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Even with her elf ears, we were swept away by Yao Chen’s Georges Hobeika Couture gown.

Some of you were put off by the fact that she chose such an elaborate gown for a daytime premiere, but the rest of us – who crave princess moments on the red carpet – instantly fell in love with her periwinkle-blue strapless gown.

When it came to the guys, our picks differed.

You opted for the handsome Joseph Gordon-Levitt in Gucci, while I was floored by how handsome Peter Facinelli looked in his Tommy Hilfiger grey suit.

Yao Chen joined Cate Blanchett on the red carpet this evening in Wellington, New Zealand for the world premiere of ‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey’.

The actress clearly didn’t want to go unnoticed on the red carpet, so she donned a beautiful Georges Hobeika Fall 2012 Couture ball gown.

This stunning look fills the void left by Zhang Ziyi, who used to be our go-to gal for pretty ball gowns.

Yao’s powder-blue tulle strapless ball gown with velvet touches and intricate embroidery details on the skirt gave me chills.

I’m typing covered in goosebumps as you know I live for a princess moment.

A small Kotur clutch, a half-up, half-down hairstyle and Bulgari drop earrings completed her BDOTW-worthy look.

I’m at a loss for words as to how spectacular this gown is.

Chen Shu attended the Luxury Life 7th Anniversary Ceremony in Beijing, China this weekend.

The Chinese actress wore a Georges Hobeika Fall 2012 Couture gown for the occasion.

Her strawberry sleeveless gown, featuring a unique petal-layered bodice with a velvet waist belt, certainly stood out against the dark background.

I have very mixed feelings about this look.

The top half is divine; so is the train. The lighter part in the middle doesn’t work for me.

I would’ve preferred it had the skirt been a dark berry hue, but this would’ve ruined the ombre effect of the gown, so again I have very strong mixed feelings about this look.

What are your feelings about it?

Here is a round-up of the rest of the looks from Vogue China’s 120th Anniversary celebration in Beijing last night.

Carolyn Murphy: The supermodel was Jason Wu’s glamorous plus one for the evening. She wore a gorgeous champagne silk cowl-neck gown with embellished shoulder details which no doubt lit up the red carpet. She styled her look with a Jason Wu Spring 2013 leopard-print box clutch and a hot-red lip colour.

Zhu Zhu: The daring TV host opted for a berry-coloured Louis Vuitton Spring 2011 Tai jacket with matching hot pants. The tights were to be expected as the pants are cut so narrowly. A green Bulgari clutch and a red pout completed her look.

Li Bingbing: The actress looked her usual elegant self wearing a Gucci Fall 2012 emerald-green blazer with matching wide-leg pants with a black velvet sash tied to the waist. Accessories included Bulgari jewels and a snakeskin Bulgari clutch. She never puts a foot wrong. She’s such a worthy Gucci ambassador. Read more…

L’Officiel 2012 China Elegance Awards took place at the National Aquatic Center in Beijing, China, last week.

Yao Chen wore a Georges Hobeika Fall 2012 Couture cocktail dress.

Her heavenly periwinkle-blue lace dress was enriched with Swarovski beads and organza-and-velvet floral appliqués.

Such a beautiful dress deserves a delicate shoe, so you can imagine my horror to be faced with her cobalt-blue Christian Louboutin ‘Daffodile’ pumps.

I mean…what was she thinking?

In fact the Bulgari clutch, recently carried by Zhang Ziyi, doesn’t work with this look either for me.

Pretty dress let down by awful styling.

You may remember that Brittany Snow wore this same dress last month.

Brittany Snow joined Anna Kendrick and Elizabeth Banks on the red carpet last night, for the ‘Pitch Perfect’ LA Premiere.

She looked beautiful wearing a Georges Hobeika Couture party dress.

Her periwinkle-blue lace cocktail dress embellished with Swarovski beads and floral appliqués makes her baby-blue eyes pop.

Brittany tends to fade into the background on the red carpet, but she stood out in this dress which she accessorized with silver pumps and silver jewels.

A matte-pink lip colour and wavy updo completed her look.
