Li Yuchun In Gareth Pugh – ‘Cleopatra’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Li Yuchun In Gareth Pugh - 'Cleopatra' Cannes Film Festival Premiere

While ordinarily I would frown at the fact that Li Yuchun is not wearing a gown on the red carpet for the ‘Cleopatra’ Cannes Film Festival this evening, however, I love the boldness of the look.

I mean, how many other people could make this Gareth Pugh Spring 2013 look work? I can only think of one: Tilda Swinton, or possibly Evan Rachel Wood.

The unique look features a ruffled high-neck top with a dramatic flowing train and wide-leg pants.

I’m of two minds about the black shoes. On one hand it breaks up all the red – separating her from the red carpet. On the other, it feels like a safe choice when everything else was so daring.

It may not be to everyone’s liking, but she certainly got herself noticed.

    such a genius.

  4. Jlee May 22, 2013 at 5:31 am #

    the pic is not so good,Liyuchun is beautiful than that.

      You told a truth.

  5. quizas May 22, 2013 at 5:30 am #

    She is so beautiful and elegant. I do think the shoes is inappropriate,it makes her looks like a queen.

  6. Cecilia May 22, 2013 at 5:17 am #

    I absolutely love this look! She’s unique compared to all the others who wear gowns on red carpet. It’s not only about fashion, but also about the attitude-be as the way she is. Love her!

    The pop star is known for her androgynous image in China. She has quite a following, which can be seen here on the message board. So this is very much her being herself. I wish her makeup and styling were bolder.

  8. roral May 22, 2013 at 4:35 am #

    she is so beautiful,LOVE.

  9. vivian May 22, 2013 at 3:59 am #

    She is so great with her own style.

  10. Hillary May 22, 2013 at 3:30 am #

    Liyuchun is 1.76 meters tall. This look is pretty charming and unique, and I really love this new spokesperson for L’Oreal!

  11. violet May 22, 2013 at 3:19 am #

    my lovely baby! i like this dress

  12. Alicat May 22, 2013 at 3:05 am #

    Good on her for following her own star. It is such a change from the sugary confections many of her countrywomen favour. It has an androgynous feel about it. That is why I think the shoes are right. They have a masculine vibe that sandals would not have.

  13. Haley May 22, 2013 at 2:56 am #

    Liyuchun herself is the symble of unique. No matter what she wears, the confident、elegant and gorgeous simle can catch you deeply.

  14. Amber May 22, 2013 at 2:44 am #

    Sooo~ beautiful!!!!I love it!!!

  15. beissy May 22, 2013 at 2:34 am #

    I like it!

  16. beissy May 22, 2013 at 2:33 am #

    Beautiful!Very nice!

  17. Janice May 22, 2013 at 2:28 am #

    This dress becomes a good fit because of her white skin and tall stature. Backswing is very unique, she held up this design. Overall look appears very graceful and elegant, fixing a sense of softness.

  18. Poppy May 22, 2013 at 2:12 am #

    Although this is not my taste, I love that she appears to be totally loving her look.

  19. cara May 22, 2013 at 1:13 am #

    i really like this look,Liyuchun is the unique symble of China. She shows her confident elegant and gorgeous simle. my love .
    but the comparing picture should be a better one

  20. candy May 22, 2013 at 1:08 am #

    so beautiful ! i like it!

  21. pipsqueak May 22, 2013 at 12:45 am #

    She should’ve gone all out Ellen and worn a tux instead of this getup that’s borderline magician. Fran Lebowitz looks so hot and proud in her tux! It’s France and be yourself. She’s a really talented vocalist.

  22. ma happy May 22, 2013 at 12:09 am #

    I think the look is elegant and pretty
    She has a nice figure
    She’s so suitable for being a model!
    She’s so different….
    Gorgeous look!

  23. Ariel May 21, 2013 at 11:57 pm #

    A bold attempt.It looks amazing on her.Elegant!

  24. Prudence May 21, 2013 at 11:53 pm #

    she does not have the height of presence to carry what could have been a great fashion moment. I really wish this would have worked cause the model looks fab

  25. Coco May 21, 2013 at 11:22 pm #

    She holds the dress beautifully. I love the dramatic flowing train the best.

  26. Rebecca Z May 21, 2013 at 11:05 pm #

    Definitely a change of pace. Not loving it, but I get the effort.

  27. Parvati May 21, 2013 at 10:28 pm #

    The black shoes ruin this look for me.

  28. Mini May 21, 2013 at 9:55 pm #

    It actually works much better than this pic shows. Could have chooses other better pictures.

    • Catherine Kallon May 21, 2013 at 10:03 pm #

      This is the better picture because you see the detail. The rest have too much flash that you lose the quality of the look.

  29. Dhppy May 21, 2013 at 9:47 pm #

    This is good, but sandals would have made this so much better.

  30. Vicky May 21, 2013 at 9:43 pm #

    If she was going for 19th century, hipster, superhero, then she nailed it. I appreciate the uniqueness of it, but for me it’s just OK.

  31. sylvia May 21, 2013 at 9:37 pm #

    Actually this pic kind of failing to show how fantastic it was on her. she’s 174 cm and not wearing high heels, and this absolutely works on her.

  32. Marybeth May 21, 2013 at 9:18 pm #

    I really don’t like the black pumps and think this would almost certainly look better on someone taller.
    Nevertheless, she’s doing a remarkably good job selling the look.

    • Nacy May 22, 2013 at 2:16 pm #

      Well,I want to say this picture did not show the best view of her dressing.

  33. kathy May 21, 2013 at 9:13 pm #

    very unique and pretty girl. she fits well on the red carpet. fantastic debut!

  34. dee May 21, 2013 at 8:46 pm #


  35. suyi May 21, 2013 at 8:44 pm #

    My love!

  36. Joy May 21, 2013 at 8:33 pm #

    For Liyuchun, with all my admiration and love To you, sweetheart, with all my love.

  37. Cowry May 21, 2013 at 8:32 pm #

    I like this girl and her red look. That’s a bold choice ,but the photo shoot is a little insipid.

  38. lee33 May 21, 2013 at 8:30 pm #

    Red rose!Elegant~!

  39. kane May 21, 2013 at 8:30 pm #

    The hair, the shoes and the jewelry certainly could have made a greater impression, but I actually quite like this by comparison.

  40. Anna Wang May 21, 2013 at 8:28 pm #

    I am afraid that this picture did not show the best view of her dressing. However, she has achieved a great job in showing the Gareth Pugh work. Unlike others, her dressing choice also stands for the unusual way she is taking. Red stands for China. She is one of the most influencial stars in this country, breaking the old traditions and acting in her own way. Her name is Chris Lee.

    • Cordula May 22, 2013 at 3:47 pm #

      Nod, I’ve seen other photos taken better and obviously she looks very well in this bold dress

  41. Danny May 21, 2013 at 8:26 pm #

    I really like her look. I agree that not many people could make this Gareth Pugh look work.

    • Tracy May 22, 2013 at 8:00 am #


  42. small May 21, 2013 at 8:19 pm #

    I like this look.She is so beautyful.

  43. Becca May 21, 2013 at 8:19 pm #

    What’s up with those black shoes?
    Also the ruffle detailing makes it look so cheap.

    • Christine May 22, 2013 at 5:15 am #

      This is not a good look.

  44. Sisuemma May 21, 2013 at 8:16 pm #

    Love it! Li Yuchun is so charming!

  45. tuotou May 21, 2013 at 8:15 pm #


    • Jlee May 22, 2013 at 5:32 am #

      can’t agree anymore

  46. tuotou May 21, 2013 at 8:14 pm #


    • Jlee May 22, 2013 at 5:33 am #

      just looks like an angel,she is so beautiful and perfect.

  47. Nat39 May 21, 2013 at 7:50 pm #

    This isn’t working well on her, the pants don’t flatter her, one needs longer legs to pull them off, and the ruffled detailing is somewhat hanging and overwhelms her, the black shoes bring the look down completely.

    • julyol1972 May 22, 2013 at 8:36 am #

      I agree! Karolina Kurkova would kill in this because of her endless legs. Li just doesn’t have the stature or confidence to pull this look off.

      • Cathy May 22, 2013 at 12:40 pm #

        She has 1.75 meters height and didn’t wear high-heeled shoes. She has a powerful aura and confidence.

  48. Louise May 21, 2013 at 7:49 pm #

    she’s unique and has her own special flavor~ LOVE HER~!! 🙂

    • Doris May 22, 2013 at 12:02 pm #

      She is a top star and has a large number of fans in China.

  49. Yeliz May 21, 2013 at 7:49 pm #

    I don’t like this look, especially not those uninspiring black pumps.

    • Arielwuy May 22, 2013 at 4:15 am #

      They are not pumps. She doesn’t wear heels, which really limit the choice of shoes. I think the black shoes are perfect to balance the outfit and exude her personality.

  50. Moxie May 21, 2013 at 7:44 pm #

    Definitely dramatic.
