Li Yuchun In Roberto Cavalli – Chinese Party

Li Yuchun In Roberto Cavalli - Chinese Party

Li Yuchun came to our attention yesterday wearing a Gareth Pugh Spring 2013 Chinese-red ensemble, which appears to be the marmite look of Cannes so far.

She proved she wasn’t afraid of taking a risk, wearing a bold colour and an unusual design at the Chinese Party held later that evening; she proved that she’s not afraid of prints either.
It would appear that Li Yuchun’s red carpet M.O. is of an androgynous nature.

I could be wrong and she’ll hit the red carpet later today in a tulle ballgown, but at the party she rocked another menswear-inspired look, this time from the Roberto Cavalli Fall 2013 collection.
The black-and-white look featuring a jacket with satin lapels was ripped right off the runway with the exclusion of the shoes.

Someone not so bold – unless they are Karolina Kurkova or Solange Knowles – would’ve added black pants or a black shirt to break up the prints; however, Yuchun rocked it as it was intended.

I can’t wait to see more of her style. I have a feeling she’s the Tilda Swinton of China.

    This is awful. really.

    This looks great on her–much better than the overwhelming red ruffle explosion from the red carpet.

    How surprise!The look is so amazing!

    The interesting thing is that she’s never tried to PUSH her body OUT. She saluted everyone by her eyes only.
    Li’s so self-possessed and kinda traditional in a rather Chinese way.
    Maybe it’s no more than my own grasp or my misconception, or maybe this sort of conservation will not be welcomed on the carpet…….
    Ye, a marmite figure.

    Wow Cool and Luxurious!

    Just search some performance of Li Yuchun, she’s so different and unique,some kind of sexy.

    The most valuable character of Li Yuchun is “be the special”,”take an unusual way.” Givenchy loves her, so does Jean Paul Gaultier, Chanel etc. For the first look on the Cannes red carpet every one believes that she will choose one of them, fat chance Haute Couture,because this is the safest way to show the honor. But to everyone’s surprise,at last she has chosen the young Garath Pugh, whose style is so indisciplinable and so difficult to control.A brave and self-confident girl, i am proud of her.

    Why so many comments, is this a fans attack? 😮

    I don’t like this, and hairstyle is awful.

    • Catherine Kallon May 22, 2013 at 5:23 pm #

      Yes, I think she is something of a big deal in China

      • Cyan May 22, 2013 at 5:31 pm #

        you got it.

    • Ariel May 22, 2013 at 5:31 pm #

      I start suspecting they are several fans with many profiles. I don t like her style anyway. It s not androgynous, since she s not Marlene Dietrich at all. Her style is only “andro-” and I find it awful for a woman.

      • pipsqueak May 23, 2013 at 6:04 am #

        Yeah, she has a huge female fan base in China. I don’t think she’s a bigger deal than Zhang Ziyi or Fan Bingbing. But Zhang and Fan are a dime a dozen, whereas Li is the one and only. We’re talking about a country of 1.3 billion people and very few are out and proud. Online solidarity … great to see her make it to Cannes.

    Distinctive, spell able and lifeful, seems different from others on the red carpet, cool!

  13. moonlcl May 22, 2013 at 4:37 pm #

    She is really unique and insists her own style~~~Like
    her very much~~~~

  14. Celeste May 22, 2013 at 4:33 pm #

    She’s a vigorous youth as well as a graceful lady. She’s a humble girl as well as the confident live queen. She’s my little sweetie as well as my distinguished majesty. She’s so charming~~~I think she can hold many kinds of style.

    Pretty girl like Yuchun with snow-white skin and perfect shape can hold every colour and style:) I know she’s a very pop icon in Asia and has great talent in music.

    independent girl she is,has been sticking to be yourself,don’t go with the flow

  32. Vic May 22, 2013 at 2:58 pm #

    She looks cool, BUT she is not China’s Tilda Swinton at all! She has a long way to go. btw her style is always criticized and considered a bit abrasive in China.

  33. Nancy May 22, 2013 at 2:57 pm #

    The one and only Li Yuchun!

  34. Paul May 22, 2013 at 2:56 pm #
