This woman. THIS WOMAN. Most people in this country have no idea who Fan Bingbing is, but in China she’s one of their leading actresses, and if you had any doubts she was an A lister, you only have to look at her wardrobe to see that she’s on the top of every designer’s wish list.
The night of the Oscars alone, Fan had THREE outfit changes – from Marchesa to Oscar de la Renta and lastly Elie Saab couture. She’s no plain dresser.
And here she is, on Wednesday this week, at the Louis Vuitton Autumn Winter 2013 show in Paris. She’s wearing a Louis Vuitton (obvs!) monochrome chequerboard dress.
Here’s what some of my blogger mates thought of Fan’s Louis look…
I loved this look. I don’t know if it’s because I actually saw it on her in person at the show just a few days ago, but she is really pulled it off. The hair and make up is the perfect compliment, and the bag and gloves are trés chic. The only piece of the puzzle not working for me are the shoes.
If ever this incredible 60s LV collection was designed for anyone, it was the flawless Fan Bingbing. She literally pops against the street – the shape, the graphic squares, the hair, everything! And the gloves – like ink black dipped hands -are so chic. This is an icon in iconic fashion. Double iconic! I die.
Although we’ve seen this look a million zillion times already this season, Fan Bingbing manages to bring something new to the table. The ladylike accessories give the dress a retro touch (slightly Dita, no?) and she oozes confidence, she’s not smiling like that for no reason. Super chic.
I think you can probably tell, lovely reader, from my ample blog posts about Fan that I am, indeed, a MASSIVE fan. This dress actually retails at a whopping £18,000 (I know this because Mummy G wanted it for my wedding), and Fan shows off every single pound of this look. OMGorgeous!
