Zhang Ziyi In Toga – China Film Directors’ Guild Awards

Zhang Ziyi attended the China Film Directors’ Guild Awards held at the Olympic Sports Center in Beijing, China on Sunday evening, where she picked up the ‘Actress of the Year’ award.

We’ve seen the actress wear a lot of Dior and Armani in the past, but on this occasion she opted for a look by Japanese label, Toga.

The look consists of a long sleeve printed bodysuit paired with a black tulle skirt and a patent leather belt.

Her Spring 2012 look was styled with an Alexander McQueen clutch, Chanel black-and-gold tassel earrings and Gucci black patent pumps.

This is an interesting, daring look for Zhang Ziyi who tends to play it safe in princess-like gowns for these types of occasions.

Rinko Kikuchi’s “Maps Of The Sounds Of Tokyo” Spanish Promotional Tour

Prior to flying to Japan to attend the Opening Ceremony opening party, Rinko Kikuchi was in Spain to attend the Barcelona premiere of her movie “Map Of The Sounds Of Tokyo”.

Like Diane Kruger, Rinko has been promoting this movie since Cannes Film Festival where we saw her wear an array of stunning gowns.

On this occasion Rinko went for an edgier look, opting for a Toga Fall 2009 dress which Mary-Kate Olsen wore in black to the same “Opening Ceremony party” Rinko attended this weekend.

Rinko’s dress was blue, which allows us to see more of the pleated and ruffled details.

I love it when Rinko gives us edgy, she never looks uncomfortable and this look suits her kooky style well.

The actress paired her dress with YSL Trib Two heels.

For the Madrid premiere Rinko stuck to the same designer, but this time she wore a black structured peplum dress.

The metallic dress is much simpler than the previous dress, yet still fascinating in it’s design.

The dress has structured cap sleeves, with partial sleeves under the arms.

The peplum on the hips is decorated with a black ruffle trim and the skirt has two diagonal pleats on the front.

Her futuristic dress needed a stand out pair of heels, and she doesn’t disappoint in that department either.

A silver sparkling clutch completes the look.

Rinko’s dress is available to purchase in navy from farfetch.com for £995/ €1,249/$1,829.

‘Opening Ceremony’ Japan Opening Reception Party

Although I do appreciate Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen’s style, they never appear to be having fun but that changed when they arrived on the red carpet for “Opening Ceremony” Japan reception party wearing Maison Michel Fall 2009 lace ears with their ensembles.

You may remember Lady Gaga wore these same lace ears recently.

Ashley wore the Mickey Mouse lace head band with a black fitted The Row Weatherby dress with a cream coat, her favourite Prada studded heels and Ralph Lauren tortoiseshell sunglasses.

Mary-Kate opted for the Rabbit Ears with her interesting black dress by a Japanese designer.

Her Toga Fall 2009 long sleeved dress had lots of texture with ruffles, pleats and layers.

She wore her dress with Prada Spring 2009 heels, and both girl carried Prada Fall 2009 bags.

It seems they both have a love for Miuccia Prada’s accessories.

There’s no way Kirsten Dunst’s could top the Olsen twins looks, but her look was also far from safe.

The actress looked like a maid wearing a high neck black mini dress trimmed with white lace and black ribbons.

A Chanel purse and black lace-up peep-toe booties completed the look.

This is not my favourite look from Kristen, plus the Chanel bag seem too big and a bit much for her look.

Humberto Leon the Creative Director of Opening Ceremony, actress Rinko Kikuchi and Carol Lim the CEO of Opening Ceremony walked the red carpet together.

Rinko wore a black double strap mini dress with exposed zippers.

I love the smokey eyes, and her sleek bob which has grown out from the shorter bob she was sporting earlier this year.

She wore her dress with the very popular Chloe Sevigny for Opening Ceremony multi buckle wedge booties as worn by Chloe herself and Leighton Meester.

Carol Lim was wearing the same Opening Ceremony Lantern dress Alexis Bledel wore to the Teen Choice Awards, but Carol’s is black and blue, whereas Alexis was blue all over.

Designer Alexander Wang and model Erin Wasson look so hip it hurts.

Erin gave us her usual “I just threw this on” look, wearing a taupe tank top with leopard print shorts and black ankle boots.
