Blimey. This is one SERIOUS dress. And if anyone can get away with it, it’s Fan Bingbing. The Chinese actress is famed for her fashion choices as much as her film roles (not that I’ve seen her in anything, apart from on red carpets), and now with this fuchsia pink, structurally amazing Marchesa gown, from the autumn/winter 2013 collection, under Fan’s proverbial belt, she wins the best dressed number two award from me.
It’s so important to not let a dress wear you, and as massive and dramatic as this Marchesa number is, Fan takes control. She has a teeny tiny frame, so it could be a disaster – kind of like a really skinny woman looking over the top of a big pile of washing, but she ALWAYS owns the outfit she has on.
And for that reason, I admire her greatly.
