Shu Qi In Giorgio Armani – Armani Lipstick Maestro Event

Taiwanese actress Shu Qi made the case for pure drama at the Armani Lipstick Maestro event in Taipei, Taiwan on Thursday (July 13).

Donning a Giorgio Armani Fall 2017 pouf-sleeve gown and opera gloves, she took the original runway variation and modeled it with a different form of theatrical glamour.

By virtue of wearing this dress in monochromatic black, she allowed its shape and statement sleeves to command the sophisticated elegance they deserve.

But, as this was a lipstick event, her perfectly, bold-red pout had just as much of a starring role, with her fascinating geometric earrings enhancing it all the more.

Fan Bingbing In Louis Vuitton – Les Parfums Louis Vuitton Shanghai Event

Les Parfums Louis Vuitton, the first perfumes that the French brand has launched in the last 70 years, is the collection of seven women’s scents created by Louis Vuitton’s perfumer Jacques Cavallier-Belletrud.

Fan Bingbing was of course on hand to celebrate the collection at an event held in Shanghai, China yesterday evening (July 13) with the perfumer himself.

I have a feeling the bold print of the actress’s Louis Vuitton Resort 2018 maxi won’t be to everyone’s liking, but as much as I like classic Bingbing, I also like unexpected Bingbing, and this falls firmly in the latter.

Her unexpected side showcases her personality and daring attitude, something I wish to see more often.

Les Parfums launched back in September, and can be found in Louis Vuitton boutiques; $240 for a 100ml bottle, and $350 for 200ml.

Zhang Ziyi In Tom Ford – 2017 Vogue Film Gala

Zhang Ziyi put the power of an LBD to work for her at the 2017 Vogue Film Gala on Friday (June 16) in Shanghai, China.

I love the relaxed off-the-shoulder asymmetry presented in this Tom Ford Fall 2017 velvet mini, which created a sassy swankiness of form.

But, let’s face it. This look was as much about the dress as the jewels—if not more so. Bejeweled bangles, ring, timepiece, and earrings all took centre stage against the canvas of the frock.

To round it out, she naturally brought the silver platforms out to play which somewhat compromised the elegance ratio.

Araya A. Hargate In Ralph & Russo Couture & Giambattista Valli Couture – 2017 Shanghai International Film Festival

Araya A. Hargate amazed us at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival for her ultimate command of head-turning maternity style. At the 2017 Shanghai International Film Festival over the weekend (July 17 and 18), she kept her mama-to-be style statements going strong.

First up, she offered up a purely feminine and romantic stance with this petal-pink organza robe gown from the Ralph & Russo Spring 2017 Couture collection. Long waves cascading around her shoulders played right into the dreamy boudoir mood. A Jaeger-LeCoultre watch paid homage to the official watch of the festival.

Fan Bingbing In Louis Vuitton – ‘The Amazing Race China’ Press Conference

With her chequered racing flag pattern on, Fan Bingbing was at the press conference for popular TV series ‘The Amazing Race China 4’ on Sunday (June 11) in Beijing.

We’ve seen the Louis Vuitton Spring 2017 collection in a number of outings with mixed results. On this occasion, there was an eye-catching panache with which Fan wore this graphic, black-and-white design that was half chess board, half Yayoi Kusama spots.

As we would expect, the shoes were of the stacked, platform variety with the silver-metallic hue picking up on the dress’s swirl of embellishment.

Her braid and curls added a side-swept softness to the look, but it could have easily withstood a sleek updo for a touch of inspired sleekness.
