Fan Bingbing’s Fashion Week: Delpozo, Oscar de la Renta, Zhang Shuai, Chris by Christopher Bu & Louis Vuitton

Paris Fashion Week has just begun after a whirlwind of shows in Milan, London, and New York City.

But, on the other side of the world, Fan Bingbing has been having her own personal fashion week, as she promotes ‘Sky Hunter’ in a full range of typically high-style looks that could have just stepped off the runway.

2017 TV Online Video Ceremony: I love how this Delpozo Resort 2018 navy gown provides a modern, grown-up allure to the princess aesthetic with its wispy balloon sleeves and diaphanous layers, which she wore on Tuesday (September 26) in Shanghai, China. Sparkling De Beers jewels and a power magenta lip completed this cool-girl interpretation of feminine romance.

‘Sky Hunter’ Promotion In Hangzhou: Also on Tuesday, Fan offered up a completely different look in this Oscar de la Renta Resort 2018 ensemble. While they were perhaps rolled up in a pinch to accommodate her frame, I would have preferred to see the wide-leg jeans without the cuffs. But, the vivid orange blazer was a striking counterpoint. Did you miss the lookbook’s belt?

‘Sky Hunter’ Promotion In Hefei: This Zhang Shuai Fall 2017 power suit was pretty in pink, providing a sharp feminine focus on the menswear trend at this promo event on Saturday (September 23). This was such a classic, streamlined look for Fan that likewise continues to see her step outside the princess gown box. You may remember that she has worn this designer before.

Post Emmys Parties

Following the big show, came the Emmy’s after parties hosted by HBO and FOX which saw a few celebrities change into second looks.

Julianne Hough: When it comes to after-parties, the idea is to switch into something more comfortable to get your groove on without the fear of someone stepping on the train you’ve been carrying around during the awards ceremony, but Julianne has different idea. She used the occasion to dress up again, wearing a Monique Lhuillier Spring 2018 gown with a train longer than her Marchesa gown. I love the ethereal nature of the gown, but I really dislike the clutch here and I feel like she’s a tad overdressed for the occasion.

Sarah Hyland: When I look at Sarah in this Vatanika Spring 2018 LBD, I’m like, “yes, she gets it. She came to party”.

Claire Foy In Oscar de la Renta – 2017 Emmy Awards

Anyone getting gown fatigue at the 2017 Emmy Awards on Sunday (September 17) was certainly invigorated by Claire Foy’s appearance.

Donning a custom Oscar de la Renta Resort 2018 jumpsuit, ‘The Crown’ actress eschewed the expected dress for the one-piece ensemble.

The modern silhouette retained an essence of Old Hollywood because of the sweeping sash over one shoulder. The vintage mood was further enhanced by the English actress’s waves, red lipstick and Harry Winston jewels.

I’m sure there will be comparisons to Emma Stone’s trouser look at the 2015 Golden Globes, but Claire’s outfit stands on its own to me.

Christian Louboutin ‘Iriza’ pumps completed his look.

Michelle Pfeiffer In Oscar de la Renta – 2017 Emmy Awards

Looking positively ageless, Michelle Pfeiffer attended the 2017 Emmy Awards on Sunday night (September 17) in LA.

As much as I am gobsmacked by the fact she is 59 years old, I found myself craving more drama from the look. I liked the thick lacework detailed on the Oscar de la Renta dress, but it lacked the oomph that I expected from an awards season gown—especially as the actress is nominated for the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Limited Series or a Movie for ‘The Wizard of Lies.’

Some will probably find the sheer dress with lack of lining to be overplayed. Do you agree?

2017 Unitas Gala

With New York Fashion Week in full swing, Unitas hosted its third annual gala against human trafficking on Tuesday (September 12) in New York where a bounty of beauties wore their best statement dresses.

Daphne Groeneveld: The model’s inky gown contained many of the current red carpet staples including cutouts and an exposed shoulder. The fishnet detailing was refreshing, but I still got a sense of déjà vu.

Ebonee Davis: Not bothered about showing thighs and boobs, the model donned a white La Perla gown with plunging front and racy slit. I would have liked to see one less detail on the bodice, be it the tie waist, flared panels or contrasting bra.

Barbara Fialho: Shimmering in a Rapha Mendonca dress, the Brazilian beauty accessorised with coordinating Alexandre Birman shoes and an Elena Ghisellini clutch. I’m sure some will be fatigued with more ab cutouts and the thigh-high slit.
