September 5, 2019 Premiere, Runway To Red Carpet

Gong Li In Elie Saab Haute Couture – ‘Lan Xin Da Ju Yuan’ Venice Film Festival Premiere

Gong Li In Elie Saab - 'Lan Xin Da Ju Yuan' Venice Film Festival Premiere

Gong Li was at the ‘Lan Xin Da Ju Yuan’ Venice Film Festival premiere on Wednesday (September 4) in Italy.

I can certainly appreciate that the Chinese actress nodded to a cultural theme with her satin dress — looking to the East Asian-inspired Elie Saab Fall 2019 Couture collection for inspiration.

But, that was also precisely what turned me off the enveloping kimono-inspired look. It just didn’t have quite the same mystique as seen on the runway.

In fact, dare I say it seemed a bit dated here, when styled with the peep-toe platform shoes and drop earrings. What do you make of it?

    Complete disaster and yes the shoes are way too heavy. But the dress is awful as well

    This is a costume and I don’t like it.

    The shoes are so wrong…

    She doesn’t bring it to life.
    The shoes are a big No.

    The styling and limp really brings down the outfit though I wasn’t hugely impressed by it on the runway.

    Sorry it looks like Elie Saab replica Made in China

    It does seem a bit dated, like something a James Bond Girl could have worn in the 80’s/90’s.
    Too bad, because it looks good on the runaway.

      I agree about the dated Bond Girl part.

    I believe her styling is really taking it down. the earrings and shoes just don’t work well with this dress.
    I appreciate her trying something dramatic and intriguing but it just doesn’t translate well off the runway.

    Dated and pretty bad overall. The shorter dress and the coat/cape do not belong anywhere near each other. The belt is horrible. Just a total no.
