Red Carpet Fashion Awards

She’s back. Fan Bingbing is back to giving me goosebumps after a succession of so-so red-carpet looks.

The Asian actress looked sensational at the 2nd Beijing International Film Festival opening ceremony, held at the China National Convention Center this evening wearing a Tadashi Shoji Fall 2012 gown.

Her blood-red velvet gown with a black lace beaded bodice is a classic case of East meets West.

Asian influences including a crystallized Judith Leiber ‘Pagoda’ bag are mixed with old Hollywood styling featuring marcel waves.

Bold red matte lips and emerald Cartier jewels completed her look.

After a sold out concert in Las Vegas on Saturday night, Florence Welch attended the Florence + The Machine Las Vegas After Party held in her honour by MSN.

Showing off a darker and more structural look than her traditional performance apparel, Florence appeared in a black-and-teal lace Tadashi Shoji Fall 2012 dress with a boat-neck and tiered skirt.

It seems ironic that Florence chose Las Vegas of all places to try out a new look and ditch her typical golden goddess style.

A loose updo and several rings – I count eight – complete the look.

You loved Mena Suvari in a short-and-sweet red version of this dress last week, so how does Florence compare?

Mena Suvari was at the Villa Magna Hotel in Spain this afternoon for the Madrid photocall for her latest movie, ‘American Pie: Reunion’.

The actress is having quite an impressive promo tour; this time she wore a Tadashi Shoji Fall 2012 dress.

Her red-and-black off-the-shoulder lace-embroidered dress with a tiered hem was shortened from the runway version.

I’m glad she shortened the dress as the fabric looks heavy enough on her tiny frame.

Mena simply styled with her dress with black platform heels with a pom-pom detail.

What I love most about this look is her voluminous bouffant and her smouldering red-carpet presence.

Thank God she was selected to lead this promo tour. Can you imagine how painful it would’ve been with just Tara Reid?

Here we have the rest of the looks from the 31st Hong Kong Film Awards which took place in Hong Kong last night.

Gao Yuanyuan: The stunning actress wore an Alexander McQueen Resort 2012 nude gown with beautiful lace embroidered details. Her sleeveless, high-neck gown was teamed with a silver Bottega Veneta clutch. This gown is divine. I’m delighted that the colour doesn’t wash her out because she’s radiant. Side-swept locks and silver jewels completed her look.

Lun-mei Guey: The actress was also beautiful in blue wearing a Bottega Veneta Spring 2012 gown. Her layered silk-chiffon gown with black silk-chiffon underlayers was teamed with sapphire earrings and blue heels.

Hailu Qin: I love Hailu Qin’s summery Tadashi Shoji Spring 2012 strapless gown. A stunning statement necklace provided an interesting contrast to her sweet floral-print gown.

Michelle Chen: The actress wore a Valentino Resort 2012 strapless gown which shimmered on the red carpet due to its intricate embroidered details. Her jewelry was kept simple in order for her gown to be the main focus of her look.

Kate Beckinsale was the first to wear this flirty Tadashi Shoji Spring 2012 dress whilst attending a press conference to announce the nominations for the 2012 Film Independent Spirit Awards back in November last year.

She made the nude tulle, lace cocktail dress that much sexier by hitching it up to show off her long, toned legs.

Wavy locks and her favourite Brian Atwood pumps completed her look.

Fan Bingbing wore the same dress last month to the Mmax Future Pictures Festival in Beijing, China.

She also adjusted the dress to make it appear shorter plus she also wore nude pumps, but the looks couldn’t be more different.

Kate wins for me.

Fan looks incredibly washed out and I don’t like the hat on this occasion.
