What to wear to make sure all eyes are on you? Head-to-toe Gucci, dahling. Actress Li Bingbing dazzled at the 65th Cannes Film Festival in a custom teal georgette gown with a neckline down-to-there with intricately embroidered flowers embracing the shoulders. The ‘swishing’ of fringe on a clutch, platform heels and a signature Gucci white gold and diamond horsebit cocktail ring completed a look that made onlookers, literally, green with envy.
Talk about radiating star quality – always one for bold sartorial choices, superstar Sammi Cheng dazzled at the 66th annual Cannes, clad in a spectacular MCM dress. The glittering stretch satin dress featured a feminine silhouette with batwings and a detailed neckline, and required almost no additional accessories: a short, sleek hairstyle (a huge trend from the runway this spring/summer), sky-high platform heels, and a healthy (make that super sexy) dose of confidence, was all that was needed.
Wore: Roberto Cavalli
A fierce black Cavalli number + Gong Li’s reign as one of China’s most beloved actresses = one of the sexiest sashays, ever. The 67th Cannes red carpet saw Li’s silhouette swathed in this sheer SS14 dress, featuring leather trim and a stunning open back. And for the bling? Only extravagant Piaget earrings, dripping with emeralds and diamonds, would do, of course.
Why just dazzle when you can knock ‘em off their (stiletto-wearing) feet? It was all diamonds and emeralds and bling (oh my!) at last year’s festival, where big and bold jewellery was the name of the game on the red carpet. One of China’s most-watched fastionistas Fan Bingbing paired her grand Ralph & Russo dress with an exclusive Chopard jewellery set, starring statement earrings with sparkling, jaw-dropping pear-shaped emeralds and diamonds.
It may have taken director Hou Hsiao-Hsien more than 10 years to produce the movie The Assassin, but it only took leading actor Chang Chen one moment on the red carpet last year to make fashion history. The Taiwanese actor donned a white, two-button notch lapel Giorgio Armani tuxedo jacket with matching trousers and vest, paired with a classic white evening shirt and dapper bow tie for a look that was oh-so-swoonworthy.
