Cannes Film Festival Day 3 – Fashion Spotlight on Fan Bing Bing

SHOW-STOPPER

WHO: Fan Bing Bing (Chinese actress and Singer)

WHAT: “Polisse” & “Wu Xia” Premieres at the Palais des Festivals during the 64th Cannes Film Festival

WHEN: May 13th 2011

WHERE: Cannes, France

Fashionwidget’s Verdict: In a white Elie Saab Couture gown and pink mermaid-cut ruffled gown by Atelier Versace there is very little room for anyone to go wrong on the red carpet. Thankfully, that was the case with Fan Bing Bing’s show-stopping moments on the red carpet yesterday. Something about her just screams “Hollywood Golden-Era”, she reminds us again of how to do glamour like it was done in the days of Elizabeth Taylor, Dorothy Dandridge and Grace Kelly or more recently with Catherine Zeta Jones. Movie Star! Complete and utter movie star. Yes, it is a bit over the top but to invoke that era you need to be a little over the top. This one gets it. A+
