Cannes WERQ: Fan Bingbing in Chris Bu Kewen

Posted on May 17, 2012

Every single damn thing about this look is so fabulous that you may go into fierce overload if you look at these pictures for too long. We suggest focusing on one item at a time; first, the stunning dress; then, the amazing jewelry and bag; and finally, the hair, which is so nuclear-grade fabulous we suggest working your way up to that one.

Remember: Breath, and pace yourself.

Chinese actress Fan Bing Bing attends the Opening Ceremony and screening of ‘Moonrise Kingdom’ at Cannes in a Chris Bu Kewen gown paired with watch, white gold rings and earrings by Chopard. Clutch by Elie Saab.

 

Bow the fuck down, puny mortals.

    she wins.

    • Jill_3

       She wins at hair, she wins at dress, and she wins at name (FAN BINGBING!!!!) Basically, I want to be her when I grow up.

      • JosephLamour

        I keep saying Fan BingBing out loud cause frankly, its the best.

        • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1401197785 Jennifer Peters-Ahnberg

          Oh my god, I’m so glad I’m not the only one doing that! Fan BingBing!

        • http://twitter.com/dollsaga Helen

          you guys make me laugh.  but you have good reasons to keep saying BingBing out  loud –it is the “coolest name”.   BingBing Means Icy Ice in Chinese , I guess  her surname  ”Fan”  helps to catch fans…  lol

      • kimmeister

        That’s the command she will give to all of her minions when she’s feeling hot.

  • Kate4queen

    Perfect!

  • kirkyo

    oh. my. gosh. seriously.

  • poggi

    I love the dress, and bag, and earrings, and makeup and hair.   She looks amazing!

  • Susan Crawford

    Wow. Just . . . wow. Perfection. Wow.

  • JasmineAM

    I have no idea who she is, but I hope to see more! WERQ that Chinese vase shit, gurl!

  • http://twitter.com/lenabena_ Elena

    Not a fan of the hair, but she is always so beautiful and fashion-forward that I’ll allow it. Stunning!

    • blogless

      Yes, I agree. I think the reason the hair bothers me is that it’s reddish color that I desperately try to get out of my hair when I dye it. I think it would have been better black.

      But that dress and clutch are to die for. Seriously.

      • Lingus

        I think her hair is black; In every movie I’ve seen her in, she has that super black hair and that super pale skin, like the flawless ice princess that she is. I think that the color we’re seeing is the red carpet reflecting off her shiny shiny hair?

        • blogless

          I don’t think so. It has that brassy look when women with really dark hair try to go lighter. Her hair should be reflecting almost blue, and here you can still see her dark roots. I know it’s being really picky pointing that out but I guess if you have jet black hair it gets boring and you want to try something different. Brunettes just don’t have the playing with new color possibilities that blondes have.

  • chelwi

    Wow! Took me a minute to wrap my mind around the hair. LOVE.

    • http://www.GiftedCollector.com Nancy Abrams

      Just when I think I’ve got TLo figured out, they go and surprise me. I expected Miss Bingbing to get slammed because she fashioned her hairstyle like the figures in the dress. And what about the green clutch? A perfect match. This entire look is an extreme example of theme dressing and matchy-matchy, but they praise her. Go figure.

      But I’m glad they like it, because I think it’s fabulous.

      • Lisa_Cop

        Also matching green nail polish.

        • Renaissance_Man_ATL

           The polish is dark blue.  And fabulous!

  • http://twitter.com/mirrormirrorxx Paola Thomas

    I want to hang her on my wall…

  • sassyglasses

    LOVE.

    And to be honest, also love that she is up there representing the Chinese.

  • mrssage

    and her make-up is fabulous.

    • kimmeister

      Now THAT is the way to get mega lashes without looking spidery!

      • dress_up_doll

        I know. I’d kill for those lashes. I’m getting old so mine aren’t as plentiful as they used to be. I also dig those eyebrows. Simply divine.

        • Ogden1990

          And the eyebrows…so beautifully natural…love them

  • http://twitter.com/arodenha Alli

    If she and Tilda ever took a photograph together I think they could make a camera melt.

  • colleenjanel

    That dress is truly AMAZING! And her skin is unreal! Flawless!

  • http://twitter.com/hmbscully WendyD

    Stunning in a way that makes everything declared stunning before this point look shabby.

    • mountainFashionista

       This is one of the few WERQs that I’ve agreed with in a long time.  Yay!

  • http://www.wordydoodles.com WordyDoodles

    Beautiful! I LOVE prints like this, and she wears it so well. Also- again with the magical green earrings! I admired Charlize in the drop crystal green earrings yesterday. I sense an emerging theme (at least for my own evolving tastes)– go green sparkling jewelry!

  • allisankelly

    SO gorgeous. Perfect 10.

  • Christina Brennan

    Love the dress and accessories, but not loving the hair.  I’m assuming that the side bang extension thingies are supposed to look like her hair?  If that’s the case, the extensions don’t match the color of the rest of her hair.  For some reason that really bothers me.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_QUMPWEPLYO4QF7XDJA3AYH3FNY Michelle L

      It’s supposed to be a nod to hair from the Tang Dynasty – the entire look is actually. The dress and its embroidery, the jade accessories, the make-up.

      I’m not sure if there really is a color discrepancy or if it’s just light… You can tell by the texture it’s not her own hair, though.

  • lilibetp

    Perfection.

  • Joyce VG

    Goddess on Earth.  It’s like looking into the sun!

  • RebeccaKW

    That fabric is beautiful.  I want a dress, bed linens, my couch, and a room wallpapered with it.

    She is stunning.

  • http://roughmenstandready.wordpress.com/ Dejah Thoris

    geisha-fabulous!

    • Patti Lever

       Geisha’s are Japanese, this lady is Chinese.

      • http://roughmenstandready.wordpress.com/ Dejah Thoris

         Yeah, I know…but the fake hair, and elaborate design of the dress reminds me of geisha with their tassels hanging down on the sides of their faces.

        • lulu880825

          The culture of the whole east Asia comes from China. Japanese learn from China in Tang Dynasty, and they keep the Tang style to today. So you think its Janapese style, but Bingbing’s look is actually a typical Tang Style, a Chinese style.

          • http://roughmenstandready.wordpress.com/ Dejah Thoris

             That explains a lot. I’ve seen photos of art that I would often be confused about it’s origin, because of the similarities. Now I shall go look up the Tang Dynasty, and learn about that period. Thanks for the clarification :)

  • SpcilK

    Supreme Godess! What’s with the 5 o’clock shadow under her arm.

    • alyce1213

      Funny, it’s not under her left arm, so I guess it’s not a shave she needs.  Maybe a bit of dark lint migrated to the right.
      But she looks to-die-for nonetheless.

  • BerlinerNYC

    I suspect she is a robot designed by aliens to mesmerize us until she explodes.

  • HomeOfficeGirl

    Wow!!!  THIS is it!

  • kimmeister

    That’s not actually her hair hanging down on the sides, right?  They look like sparkly black tassels.  While I don’t like the hair and want to clean up her brows, everything else is to die for. I’m sure her shoes were amazing as well, even though we can’t see them.

    • Sobaika

      Yeah… her makeup is perfect until you notice her eyebrows need some plucking.

  • Anathema_Device

    I am a total whore for ornate embroidery. Fan Bing Bing: I am your bitch. Shit, even her name is great.

    I love this look. Ordinarily, I wouldn’t care for the hair, but she’s is bringing over-the-top, editorial-grade fierceness to life.

    Thank you so much for this shot of fabulosity, T Lo. I have been mired in the dullest project ever this week.

  • Richard Harper

    Girlfriend shut it down.  Everybody else weep.

  • l3icest3r

    I’ve never heard of this actress, but she is killing it up there! Even her nail polish is the perfect color. 

    But the hair, nooooo … the hair not so much.

  • aimee_parrott

    On a scale of 1 to 10, she gets a 12. She looks like a beautiful porcelain figuring come to life. I want to put her on my mantel, and I don’t even have a fireplace!

  • Le_Sigh

    What a truly fabulous red carpet spectacle she is!  I suddenly want her and Tilda Swinton to do a movie together to watch them battle it out on the red carpet.

  • BrooklynBomber

    Oh, damn. DAMN!

  • BarbaraNovak

    Saw just a quick glimpse of this in the background of ET or someone’s coverage last night and I kept screaming at my TV to show me this fabulous creature NOW!  Thank you for this!

  • joe_tey83

    She looks spectacular.

    Although I can’t shake off my image of her playing a supporting role as a mousy faithful servant girl many years ago in (the hugely popular) My Fair Princess. It’s really so very funny to look at her now that she’s on the A-list and whatever. I just want to yell out her character’s name and laughed hysterically.

    If this isn’t one of the top five looks from Cannes 2012, then Cannes 2012 will be the most amazing ever.

  • Judy_S

    She justifies the whole concept and practice of the red carpet.

  • howdoilook

    My jaw DROPPED when I scrolled and saw the full fierceness of that dress. BRAVA. 

  • giiiirrrr

    Really?  I hate the hair.  It’s too literal China doll/Geisha, as is the makeup, particularly the foundation.  And the dress is awfully bottom heavy for someone so slender.  I admit that it’s striking as hell, but only WERQ worthy due to the considerable drama.

    • librarygrrl64

      “Really?  I hate the hair.  It’s too literal China doll/Geisha”

      I agree. It makes the whole look costumey, or like a themed fashion editorial. But that is my only (minor) quibble. The dress, the clutch, the jewels, TO DIE FOR!

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_HREPOWNBVUBRIVPQCF3ST2IKDM Euphory

       If you see other pictures of her, she’s not slender at all.  not “bottom-heavy” per say, but definitely pear-shaped and heavy compared to most Asian and even non-Asian actresses.
      And the foundation/skin color is a fairly well-used tone in Asia, and her natural coloring is actually really fair as well.

      • giiiirrrr

        Ah, I was trying to say that her chest is, or appears, small relative to the heaviness of the lower half of the dress, creating a less well-proportioned silhouette.  As far as I can tell, her natural skin tone is very light, but with more of an olive cast than the true white of this foundation.  To my Western eyes (as it were!), it looks a little cartoon-y.  She’s a stunning woman, but I think she could skip some of the more standard elements in this outfit and look even better.  But I’m clearly in the minority here!  :)

      • rawrgrowlrawr

        How can you say “she’s not slender at all.” Having hips does not negate a slender figure.

  • butterflysunita

    Oh my God.  Everyone else at Cannes can just go home now.  

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Jessica-TallGirl-Freeman/1043623567 Jessica TallGirl Freeman

  • PaperPusher2

    I can’t help but remember when Victoria Beckham wore that Ming vase-like Cavalli dress and have to say I liked Cavalli’s dress better.   

  • P M

    I didn’t listen when TLo spoketh. Now my brain has exploded.

    TOO. MUCH. FABULOSITY.

    WOOOOOW!!!

  • http://twitter.com/LoveTeachPray Jennifer Swegler

    T-Lo!  Did you know the background on this dress and her hair?  The embroidery is about the four beauties of ancient China, and her hair is styled to be that of the Tang dynasty.   

    And I am so glad y’all love it!  I was afraid y’all might not.  I love this look!  

  • prettybigkitty

    Flawless.

  • TonyGo

    Obviously in the tiny minority here, but I’m not sold on this.  The overall effect is costumey.  I think I’d be good with either Chinese artwork on the dress OR the lantern-tassel ‘do, but not both.   Maybe I’m just cranky today. 

  • bitchybitchybitchy

    Fan BingBing and her stylist just knocked it out of the park.  Such a gorgeous gown, accessorized to perfection. Sigh.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=713709401 Randy Noak

    Okay, just to be “that guy” the look is absolutely flawless except I’m not loving the nail color. But such a minor quibble over such a beautiful look!

  • HeyMrPhipps

    I’m in complete agreement. There’s nothing about this look that I don’t love. And quite possibly the most awesome monikers ever!

  • http://blue-again.myopenid.com/ blue

    Fantastic! Fits like a glove. (Don’t care for the lipstick color though.)

  • toriadoria

  • piecesofconfetti

    Cancel the Cannes red carpet now. Fan Bing Bing wins it all.

  • Carla_Charlton

    Glorious! (I’m curious about the shoes…)

  • StellaZafella

    The hair and the pictoral “stories” in the fabric of the gown are meant to celebrate the styles popular in the Tang dynasty (I read that in another blog). The brows are natural and, I think, perfect for her traditions. Her compexiion is flawless and without apparent effort in broad daylight. She is perfection and exquisite. This is a balanced marriage of ancient art and new fashion…And she even uses the haute model ‘stoop’ to be demure without losing a wit of power – there are lessons to be learned here which she teaches simply by example.
    It’s beyond “werq” for me…there is no worthy score to give it. I just sigh and take it all in.

  • http://twitter.com/Mylynka Mylynka Cardona

    I think this is the first time ever, in all your posts I have viewed, that I said “Wow!” out loud without realizing it.

    My tiny complaint is the lipstick color. But the dress is absolutely beautiful!

  • Warrior89

    Gorgeous.

  • ri_dic

    Stunning dress, but I think either the hair OR the make up. Both with that dress bring it to a Kabuki level. I’d rather see fashion drama on the red carpet- not costume.

    • Verascity

      She’s Chinese, not Japanese.

    • Lingus

      I appreciate a good costume if it’s aesthetically appealing (Gaga for one; Minaj, no). To me, this is beyond aesthetically appealing and just downright gorgeous.

    Thank you for finally featuring her! I know it’a a bit much, but you should feature her past ‘Cannes Opening Ceremony’ looks, including a gold dragon robe and a red tang dynasty inspired dress with cranes. By the way for everyone else—- the hair is inspired by the Tang Dynasty court ladies, and the dress tells the stories of ancient China’s 4 Great Beauties, 2 of which wrecked kingdoms because of their beauty.

    http://www4.images.coolspotters.com/photos/661770/fan-bingbing-and-chris-bu-kewen-crane-gown-gallery.jpg

    you are correct on all counts. the only thing i can add that you havent chosen to highlight? is how real her skin looks. not that it doesnt look good, but it doesnt look like it was waxed before makeup was applied. i remember waxing from my misspent youth, i imagine they do something less crude & invasive now. but she doesnt look like she’s had any of it & she looks far better for that.

    what a wonderful trifecta of posts today: noomi rapace, this one, TS. cant beat it w/ an, i dunno, something you beat things w/. not a stick, wouldnt have enough glory.

    I haven’t seen any of Fan Bingbing’s actual work, but she has always looked FIERCE in every picture that I’ve seen of her on past red carpet events. (seriously google her, you won’t be disappointed) This one is no exception. I don’t love the hair. From the thumbnail I thought she was rocking a Louise Brooks-esque bob and was super-excited… but yeah no those hair flap things are just weird. The makeup, accessories, and gown on the other hand are gorgeous! Well done Ms. Bingbing.

    She totally had a nose job! But wow, this is so fabulous!

  • Lisa_Cop

    Love the outfit but Ziyi Zhang and Li Gong (2046) are both far more beautiful women.

  • quiltrx

    Good GOSH she looks fabulous!  She almost doesn’t look real–like a beautiful, intricate statue someone created out of desperate love.  Her skin is incredible.

  • Ksagun13

    Am I totally nitpicky if I noticed the earrings are the wrong shade of green for that dress?   It’s gorgeous overall but I it bothers me a little. 

    And those hair tassels are weird.  But she is FIERCE.   Must Google her!

    That dress belongs in a museum. For that matter, Fan in that dress is quite the word of art, too.
     

  • NurseEllen

    She looks incredibly great and good for her.  I don’t have time to look at 200+ responses, though, so can someone please give me the short answer to: why is it not “too matchy” for her to be sporting green gems and a green clutch, too?  Sometimes the subtleties of the “matchy” invocations escape me.

    • Sally Brownson

      Matchiness is complicated. Basically, it’s too matchy if one picks accessories that are the same color as the dominant color of the outfit. If she had picked white accessories, that would be too matchy. In an outfit with very few colors, it’s preferable to pick out accessories in a color that doesn’t match but goes with the outfit, but in a dress that seems to have 20 colors, it’s better to just pick accessories in relatively minor colors. The fact that she picked accessories in two different greens and also had accessories that are “uncolored” is what makes this a perfect case of “going with” rather than matching exactly.

    My God.  She’s like some exquisite porcelain vase.  The hints of green play up the translucent nature of her skin.  I’m gobsmacked.
