Fan Bingbing In Alexis Mabille Haute Couture – ‘Ash Is The Purest White (Jiang Hu Er Nv) Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Fan Bingbing proved that drama and elegance can live harmoniously on the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival premiere of ‘Ash Is The Purest White (Jiang Hu Er Nv)’ this evening (May 10).

The Asian beauty was radiant once again in Alexis Mabille Spring 2018 Couture.

What I love most about this look is the lack of sequins and sheerness.

Aside from Cate Blanchett, this is the only time where architectural brilliance has come out to play.

I’m going back and forth with the gold Edie Parker ‘Wolf’ clutch as I wish it had been black.

‘355’ Cannes Film Festival Photocall

After first seeing a photoshoot with Penelope Cruz, Marion Cotillard, Jessica Chastain, Lupita Nyong’o and Fan Bingbing on Elizabeth Stewart’s instagram, I thought the ladies were promoting a beauty line or jewelry, as they were all decked out in black.

Turns out the ladies are actually promoting their spy thriller ‘355’ during Cannes Film Festival this afternoon (May 10).

Can our hearts take two mega Girl Power promo tours this year (the other being Ocean’s 8)?

It can, and it will.

Penelope Cruz: Despite the famous Devil Wears Prada quote, I’m all in when it comes to florals for spring and summer, especially when it breaks up the mostly-black run the Spanish actress has opted for during this festival. Her Ralph Lauren Collection Spring 2018 maxi was such a refreshing choice.

Marion Cotillard: The edgier side to Marion came out to play again today in this Chanel Pre-Fall 2018 LBD styled with Chanel cuffs. The Nicholas Kirkwood Casati over-the-knee biker boots drag this look down a bit. I would’ve loved a open-toe bootie.

Jessica Chastain: Elegance personified, the actress always looks right at home during Cannes Film Festival. The best part of her Wolk Morais look is the gorgeous draped detail at the back. Jimmy Choo ‘Hourly’ sandals completed her look.

Lupita Nyong’o: Fresh of her successful promo tour for ‘Black Panther’ the actress was wearing all black donning a Miu Miu collection dress. Styled with Lace up ankle booties and Fendi shades, I do love this look, but I’m missing Lupita in bold colours. APM Monaco’s Mono silver moon earrings completed her look.

Fan Bingbing: I was worried that we wouldn’t see the Asian actress at the festival this year as she’s no longer and L’Oreal or Chopard ambassador. What would Cannes be without Fan Bingbing? Decked out in all white Osman Spring 2018, the white shirt might aim to bring balance to this look, but it’s all about the feather skirt. I’m living for this daytime drama. The shoes? Hmmm.

Fan Bingbing In Ralph & Russo Couture – Cannes Film Festival Gala Dinner

Following her Cannes Film Festival opening ceremony gown, Fan Bing Bing was still in princess mode while attending the Gala dinner on Tuesday (May 8) in France.

The actress wore a pink Ralph & Russo Spring 2018 Couture gown with micro silver and rose-gold embellishments which twinkled beautifully under the lights.

I love how this is not too OTT, yet still glamorous enough for the occasion.

I’ve looked at this long and hard, and I’m still amazed how this colour doesn’t wash Fan Bingbing out.

De Beers jewels and an unfortunate return of that silver Louis Vuitton bag completed her look.

Fan Bingbing In Ali Karoui Couture -‘Everybody Knows’ Cannes Film Festival Screening

As Fan Bingbing is no longer a L’Oreal girl or a Chopard brand ambassador, I did worry if we would see the Chinese actress at Cannes Film Festival this year.

So I was breathing a sigh of relief when she glided onto the red carpet for the ‘Everybody Knows (Todos Lo Saben)’ screening and opening ceremony this evening (May 8) in France.

Naturally she gave us one of her very finest princess moments wearing a bejewelled and tulled tiered gown created by Tunisian designer Ali Karoui.

With an embellished bodice, the De Beers necklace might be overkill for some – but this is Cannes, so we allow that.

What I didn’t love is the black strap timepiece and the LV bag which felt very Claire’s Accessories alongside this regal gown. It wasn’t the right choice at all for me.

Fan Bingbing In Chicco Mao, Valentino & Alexander McQueen – CHINABEST, RIIFO Group Press Conference & 2018 Youku Young Choice Ceremony

Over the weekend, Fan Bingbing attended a trio of events in China, donning three distinct looks.

CHINABEST Press Conference: I like how she gave the straight-up princess gown look a rest with the more straightforward elegance of this Chicco Mao Spring 2018 dress, which further enhanced her figure and an hourglass silhouette with the white panels at the side. I think the off-the-shoulder, ruffle neckline and her long waves helped to imbue the design with the flirty, girlish side we know and love with Fan.
