Janice Man In Stéphane Rolland – 2013 Hong Kong Film Awards

Janice Man In Stéphane Rolland - 2013 Hong Kong Film Awards

Janice Man looked stunning on the red carpet of the 2013 Hong Kong Film Awards on Saturday evening.

The actress and model wore an asymmetric, dual-coloured Stéphane Rolland gown from the Fall 2012 Couture collection.

This dress would be extremely hard for most women to pull off, but it absolutely works on Janice, thanks in part to her pin-thin figure.

The two-tone colours, the draping and the long-sleeve make this totally unique and a major stand-out, and Janice was smart to pair the dress with the exact belt as was worn on the runway, as it’s the perfect accent piece.

She was also smart to opt out of the gloves worn by the model on the runway, as they are distracting and take the dress from stand-out to over-done.

This is one of my favorite red carpet looks in a very long time. I applaud Janice for taking the risk with this dress, because in my book, the risk totally paid off.

    As stunning and show-stopping as the gown is, the excessive silver bling (clutch, bracelet, ring and earrings) puts me off. Not perfect.

    Stunning ! She looks much better that the model! WHAT A DRESS ! BDOTW for me !

    She completely rock with this look. Best dressed nominee of the week.

    I have never commented on a look before, though I visit this site daily. This look is striking and it isn’t even my taste. Contender for BDOTY for me.

    This is the sort of overly thought out yet underperforming gown that would be called “student work” on Project Runway. Too many ideas that don’t harmonize.

      I don’t think she is doing this dress justice, but then I’m not a fan of the dress, either; it’s also over-accessorized.

    I don’t like the dress and I don’t like it on her. Being “pin thin” had the exact opposite impression on me — more curves, height and presence might have changed my mind about this dress.

  7. Nadine April 16, 2013 at 12:50 am #

    She’s perfect, love the bag.

  8. EmmaWoodhouse April 15, 2013 at 10:14 pm #

    I would love this if the taupe side weren’t so skimpy. Love from the waist down and love her styling, but the top doesn’t make it for me.

  9. Amy April 15, 2013 at 10:00 pm #

    BDOTW! Seriously why does nobody ever wear Stephane Rolland to awards shows or premieres? The guy is a master. Love the dress.

  10. Marina April 15, 2013 at 7:48 pm #

    My jaw dropped for the first time since Nieves Alvarez in Stéphane Rolland Couture. I’m in love with this gown.

    Been awhile since we’ve seen his creations grace a red carpet but it’s been worth the wait. On paper it sounds horrid, even on the runway I wasn’t totally sold but seeing it on Janice it’s BDOTW worthy

    Kim Kardashian wore this outfit on a recent episode of her reality series and at the time it was quite impossible to see how beautiful this creation is as she was absolutely spilling out of the dress but it looks wonderful here, BDOTW contender although i would’ve liked to see some accessories as well.

  13. Joy April 15, 2013 at 5:00 pm #

    Wow!!! This is pure awesomeness! I agree, this is the most exciting I’ve gotten over a gown in a while too. BDOTY contender right here. Simply gorgeous in every way yet different.

  14. ellen April 15, 2013 at 4:27 pm #

    amazing!! bdoty!

  15. mandy April 15, 2013 at 4:14 pm #

    Only the couture king that is Mr Roland can create something so magnificent. My BDOTY contender.

  16. Agathe April 15, 2013 at 4:04 pm #

    She secured a spot on my BDOTW list despite mixed metals…

  17. Rebecca Z April 15, 2013 at 3:51 pm #

    Spectacular. I am not usually a fan of the single sleeve dress, but this one works for me. She styled it beautifully and her hair is perfect.

  18. Angie April 15, 2013 at 3:27 pm #

    Just… WOW! Absolutely breathtaking, flawless.
    IMO this is a BDOTW worthy and BDOTY contender.

  19. Beta April 15, 2013 at 3:17 pm #

    she looks like a godess, drop dead gorgeous!!

  20. Bibi April 15, 2013 at 3:16 pm #

    She looks lovely: BDOTW contender for sure.

  21. Kathy April 15, 2013 at 3:11 pm #

    I’m on the fence about this one. Her belt and clutch clash, and the dress looks pieced together and slightly incoherent. Half of it is made of a less luxe fabric than the other half.

  22. Moxie April 15, 2013 at 3:09 pm #

    This is a WOW dress.

    • jo April 15, 2013 at 3:13 pm #

      my point exactly. WOW

  23. Anne April 15, 2013 at 2:52 pm #

    A total show-stopper. I’m not familiar with her, but such a WOW moment makes me notice her. My only (minor) quibble is I would have preferred gold accessories (though it looks like the clutch does have a gold accent).

  24. Igor April 15, 2013 at 2:49 pm #

    Wow! I’m speachless!
    So much better than on the runway.

  25. Yeliz April 15, 2013 at 2:47 pm #

    I would’ve preferred gold accessories, but she still looks stunning and BDOTW worthy.

        +3. The silver clutch, earrings, ring, and bracelet are totally wrong for the dress, but she looks so amazing in it that she’s still BDOTW-worthy…she could’ve been more than a contender if the accessories were better.

  26. becky April 15, 2013 at 2:44 pm #

    BDOTW. This is amazing

  27. Christine April 15, 2013 at 2:42 pm #

    Gorgeous look.

  28. gabis April 15, 2013 at 2:36 pm #

    Whoa, she looks fantastic! I wouldn’t change a single thing. J’adore head-to-toe. BDOTW worthy.

      +5 For me it’s BDOTY-worthy!
