Shu Qi In Dolce & Gabbana and Gucci – 2018 Beijing International Film Festival

Shu Qi was at the 2018 Beijing International Film Festival in Beijing, China over the weekend, attending two events.

First, the actress attended the ‘Tiantan Award’ jury press conference on Friday (April 13). It would be hard to overlook the blatant romantic quality of this Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2018 design that featured a Cupid motif across its diaphanous layers. The statement earrings were likely unnecessary for the softer side of this dressing gown-inspired style—that, or a sleek bun would have helped de-clutter the neckline.

Fan Bingbing In Chicco Mao, Valentino & Alexander McQueen – CHINABEST, RIIFO Group Press Conference & 2018 Youku Young Choice Ceremony

Over the weekend, Fan Bingbing attended a trio of events in China, donning three distinct looks.

CHINABEST Press Conference: I like how she gave the straight-up princess gown look a rest with the more straightforward elegance of this Chicco Mao Spring 2018 dress, which further enhanced her figure and an hourglass silhouette with the white panels at the side. I think the off-the-shoulder, ruffle neckline and her long waves helped to imbue the design with the flirty, girlish side we know and love with Fan.

Angelababy In Christian Dior – Christian Dior Shanghai Spring-Summer 2018 Haute Couture Collection Showcase

Angelababy was at the Christian Dior Shanghai Spring-Summer 2018 Haute Couture Collection Showcase on Thursday (March 29) in China.

Naturally, the Dior-loving darling was decked out in the brand, wearing this glittering gown from the Pre-Fall 2018 collection.

The enchanting grace of the look was right in line with Angelababy’s romantic, girlish style.

However, I did find the white ‘Lady Dior’ bag to interrupt the shimmering fluidity of the design, as the dress certainly could have done well with a lighter, metallic clutch—or nothing at all.

Araya A. Hargate In iCONiC – Siam Paragon Commercial Event

Araya A. Hargate turned heads at a Siam Paragon shopping mall promotional event in Bangkok, Thailand this week.

Her Elie Saab look received mixed reviews so I’m curious to see how this one will go down.

The actress embraced the romance of the season in an iCONiC Spring 2018 confection that resembled a blooming flower.

There is a realistic quality to the piece thanks to the high attention to detail and delicateness of the fabric. The black outlines add a whimsical cartoon finish and ensure each petal is distinct.

She accented the dress with a white T-shirt and yellow Balenciaga ‘Knife ‘over the knee boots. I expected green to complete the flower-stem theme, but the yellow succeeds in carrying the joyful feeling of spring.

Fan Bingbing In Georges Hobeika Couture – De Beers Taiwan Event

Naomi Watts wasn’t the only one promoting fine jewelry yesterday, Fan Bingbing was too.

The Asian actress was in Taiwan celebrating the newest collection of jewels by De Beers in her ambassadorial role.

We all know princess gowns are Bingbing’s thing; she can do this kinda look with her eyes closed. But that doesn’t stop each outing from being uniquely special and uplifting.

On this occasion the minty hue of her Georges Hobeika Spring 2018 Couture gown was right on time for the start of spring.

With jewels being the focus here, I wouldn’t have styled the actress in an embellished gown, but if anything the gown enhances the jewels, rather than detracts.

Another breath-taking gown for Fan Bingbing, or been-there-done-that and brought the t-shirts?

Araya A. Hargate In Elie Saab – BabyLove Premium Gold Event

Araya A. Hargate attended a BabyLove Premium Gold Event in Thailand yesterday (March 21) with husband Nott Witsarut and twin sons Saifah and Bhayu Rangsisingpipat.

The lush lemon hue of this Elie Saab Resort 2017 ruffled gown is what was so zesty and groundbreaking, with the black hair bow contributing another layer of charm.

And, I can only imagine the flowing design was beautiful when she walked—even without the slit.

However, there were some execution issues at both the top and the bottom, what with her visible nude bra and the overly long length of the skirt.

You may remember Draya Michele wore this same dress to the BET Awards.

Bella Hadid In Christian Dior – ‘Dior, The Art of Color’ Exhibition

Bella Hadid was at the ‘Dior, The Art of Color’ exhibition at MoCA Shanghai on Wednesday (March 21) in China.

As the model can sometimes favour bold and barely-there statements, I was pleasantly surprised to see her in this Christian Dior Fall 2017 ruffled, point d’espirit gown.

This reminds me of her elegant turn at the last ‘Dior, The Art of Color’ exhibition last fall.

Even more surprisingly, she even wore the Dior dress with a lining.

Although we’ve seen the look on both Felicity Jones and Sofia Carson, I thought Bella commanded it with an even stronger presence of form and sophisticated panache—especially with her sculptural ponytail.

Would you agree?
