Fan Bingbing In Ralph & Russo Couture – Moet & Chandon Celebration

Fan Bingbing In Ralph & Russo - Moet & Chandon Celebration

Fan Bingbing attended a commercial event celebrating Moet & Chandon on Friday (December 12) in Shanghai, China.

The actress wore a red one-shoulder gown by British couturiers Ralph & Russo.

I have to say I am not a fan of this Fall 2014 Couture gown on Bingbing.

It totally overwhelms her petite frame with all that fabrication draped at the hips and waist.

I was immediately put off by the crease on the skirt and train, but, having looked at the runway image, perhaps this is intended.

With tonal peep-toes, which surprisingly aren’t offensive on this rare occasion, and matching lip colour, I see the potential, but the end result wasn’t to my liking.

I especially dislike how bad the dress looked when she walked the red carpet.

Rita Ora In Ralph & Russo Couture – TNT Christmas in Washington 2014

TNT Christmas In Washington 2014

Rita Ora attended TNT Christmas in Washington 2014 held at the National Building Museum on Sunday (December 14) in Washington DC.

Following the Jingle Ball look, Rita went in yet another direction, this time serving up a decidedly ladylike Ralph & Russo Fall 2014 Couture offering à la Dita Von Teese, equipped with the leather opera gloves, retro waves and ruby-red lips we would expect to see on the burlesque star.

Rita’s off-the-shoulder black-and-white-lined frock is divine. Ralph & Russo continue to out do themselves with red carpet hit after red carpet hit.

Classic in style yet contemporary in design, I love the addition of the red Paul Andrew peep-toes, which rounded out this look, complementing that ever present red lip.

Fan Bingbing In Ralph & Russo Couture – 2014 Young Choice Awards

Fan Bingbing In Ralph & Russo Couture - 2014 Young Choice Awards

Fan Bingbing attended the 2014 Young Choice Awards in Beijing, China, on Wednesday (December 10) where she received the ‘10 Years Honourable Artiste’ award.

Wearing her second Ralph & Russo Couture look in a row, this time she selected an off-white wool crepe soft roll-collar jacket with pearl and crystal embellishment and a flared skirt from the Fall 2014 Couture collection.

Sadly, the blast of the flash has etched out the exquisite details of this look, however, you can see the brilliance from the runway picture to get a true idea of the craftsmanship.

Styled with Chopard jewels and a dark red lip, the platform shoes, once again, especially as they are decked out in silver glitter, are being ignored.

Olga Kurylenko In Ralph & Russo Couture – 11th Annual Dubai International Film Festival Opening Night Gala

Olga Kurylenko In Ralph & Russo Couture - 11th Annual Dubai International Film Festival Opening Night Gala

Olga Kurylenko attended the Opening Night Gala during day one of the 11th Annual Dubai International Film Festival held at the Madinat Jumeirah Complex on Wednesday (December 10) in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

While I couldn’t get on board with Emily Blunt’s look at this event, Olga once again swept me clean off my feet wearing a Ralph & Russo Fall 2014 Couture gown with stunning David Morris earrings.

The British couturiers, who are fast becoming a favourite for celebrities who desire beauty-enhancing looks oozing with elegance and grace, scored another fashion homerun with Olga.

With the sheerness only enhancing the delicate embellished detailing, I thought nothing could surpass her Ralph Lauren Collection look from earlier in the week, but I guess I was wrong.

Eva Herzigova In Ralph & Russo – Mon Cherie Barbara Tag 2014

Eva Herzigova In Ralph & Russo - Mon Cherie Barbara Tag 2014

Eva Herzigova attended the Mon Cherie Barbara Tag 2014 held at Haus der Kunst on Thursday (December 4) in Munich, Germany.

The supermodel looked breathtaking wearing a Ralph & Russo Fall 2014 Couture pale peach French Chantilly lace gown accented with pearl embellishment plus a heavenly chiffon pleated fishtail skirt.

We questioned Eva Longoria’s suitability for the brand and Fan Bingbing’s clunky shoes with her Ralph & Russo look yesterday, but here, there are no question marks, just high praise for a job very well done.

This is glamour at it very finest, while exuding ultra femininity.

One for the BDOTW list methinks … possibly even one for BDOTY.

Fan Bingbing In Ralph & Russo Couture – ‘Ever Since We Love’ Press Conference

Fan Bingbing In Ralph & Russo Couture - 'Ever Since We Love' Press Conference

Fan Bingbing attended a press conference, alongside actor Han Geng, for ‘Ever Since We Love’ today (December 4) in Beijing, China.

The actress was pretty in pink, dressed in a sweet Ralph & Russo Couture ensemble with rosette detailing that wasn’t too sugary thanks to her simple, wispy ’do and more minimal jewels.

Adding a matching top underneath the structured jacket, she skipped the skin-baring plunge effect. When paired with the swingy full skirt, this look exudes sophistication and a sense of old Hollywood glamour.

The same cannot be said for her shoes. She should have taken a cue from the runway and worn a classic nude pump instead of these suggestive platforms. But they are par for the course for Fan, and at least they are nude so they are slightly less noticeable.
