Fan Bingbing In Chictopia – ‘The White Haired Witch of Lunar Kingdom’ Chengdu Press Conference

Fan Bingbing In Chictopia - 'The White Haired Witch of Lunar Kingdom' Chengdu Press Conference

Fan Bingbing moved on to Chengdu, China, where she continued to promote her new movie, ‘The White Haired Witch of Lunar Kingdom’, on Tuesday (July 29).

Keeping up her run of supporting Asian designers, the actress wore a coral and black patterned retro-meets-modern frock from Beijing-born designer Christine Lau, who founded the Chictopia.

Crafted from a sturdy fabric to withhold its voluminous skirt, structured shoulders and bow accent, the actress styled her look with platform grey peep-toes and Chopard jewels.

I can’t say I’m a fan of either the style or colour of the shoes with this dress, but not being a fan of Bingbing’s shoe choice is nothing new.

Ankles up, this is another great look from the variety she has given us on this promo tour.

Fan Bingbing In Chris by Christopher Bu & Helen Lee - 'The White Haired Witch of Lunar Kingdom' Press Conference & Premiere

Fan Bingbing continued to promote her new movie, ‘The White Haired Witch of Lunar Kingdom’, attending two more events.

Beijing Press Conference: You’ll be delighted to see the lack of quadruple-stacked heels on this very rare occasion. The actress wore her Saint Laurent criss-cross platform patent-leather pumps with a pretty blue and black patterned Chris by Christopher Bu Fall 2014 dress with her raven waves tumbling down one side. While her gown choices are a tad on the predictable side, her looks for press conferences are varied and playful.

Beijing Premiere: I am sure you are as shocked as I am that the actress didn’t wear a flowy, embellished gown of the Elie Saab variety for the premiere, instead wearing a Helen Lee Fall 2014 blouson top and skirt in shades of pink and grey which both feature a red-manicured hand holding a rabbit. This may appear strange but the Chinese designer is often inspired by Chinese contemporary artists when creating her collections. Bunny-clutching print aside, I love this look; once again I find it refreshing, with the mint-green Lanvin pumps drawing out the green on her skirt.

Which look do you prefer?

Angelababy In Fausto Puglisi – ‘Temporary Family’ Press Launch

Angelababy In Fausto Puglisi - 'Temporary Family' Press Launch

Angelababy attended the ‘Temporary Family’ press launch in Beijing, China on Saturday (July 26).

We all know the actress for her love of pretty gowns, but on occasion she does step out the box, like she did here wearing a Fausto Puglisi Fall 2014 look.

The look featured a black, white and red intarsia ‘Statue of Liberty’ crewneck sweater and a black asymmetrical mini skirt, which she styled simply with black pumps.

I love this change in direction to keep her style fresh, interesting and diverse. The only thing I would change here is placing her hair up in a slick ponytail.

Shu Qi 舒淇 In Emilio Pucci – Toyota ‘Levin’ Sedan Launch

Shu Qi In Emilio Pucci - Toyota 'Levin' Sedan Launch

Hugh Jackman and Shu Qi attended the launch of the Toyota ‘Levin’ sedan on Monday (July 28) in Guangzhou, China.

Hugh Jackman: The actor, who is still sporting the shaved head and goatee for his upcoming movie ‘Pan’ in which he plays the notorious pirate Blackbeard, still looked very handsome in his dark suit and grey shirt combo.

Shu Qi: The actress was a vision of loveliness in bright yellow, even though we have seen this Emilio Pucci Fall 2014 one-shoulder gown twice before courtesy of Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Arizona Muse. I love the pile up of gold jewels to complement the gold accents on the gown. The only thing missing from this look is the Rosie Huntington-Whiteley confidence.

Fan Bingbing In Dolce & Gabbana – The White Haired Witch of Lunar Kingdom’ Beijing Press Conference

Fan Bingbing In Dolce & Gabbana - The White Haired Witch of Lunar Kingdom' Beijing Press Conference

Fan Bingbing attended the press conference of ‘The White Haired Witch of Lunar Kingdom’ on Sunday (July 27) in Beijing, China.

The Asian beauty was true to form, looking beautiful wearing a yellow chiffon Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2014 empire-waist knee-length dress featuring both owl and floral prints.

She also kept up her love for quadruple-stack heels, which ordinarily throw me off any look but this one manages to get a pass.

Chopard jewels and sleek straight tresses completed her look.
