Fan Bingbing at Cannes (x2)

Posted on May 21, 2012

Judging by the reaction to the previous Fan Bingbing posts, it occured to us that we are not providing you with enough Fan Bingbing in your lives. It also occurred to us that If Fan Bingbing married Dakota Fanning, she could be Fan Fanning. If she married David Crosby, she could be Fan Bingbing-Crosby. We’re just saying. Shut up. Spend all day looking at pictures of celebrities and see what happens to YOUR brain.


Fan Bingbing attends the Trophée Chopard Party in an Elie Saab gown paired with a Salvatore Ferragamo clutch. Chopard diamond and emerald earrings and necklace from the “Red Carpet Collection.”

Like Dita von Teese, it seems Miss Fan can get away with things we’d find irritating in other people, like wearing jewelry that matches – but not quite – the dress. Personally, we would not have recommended pairing these pieces with this dress (they fight each other a bit), but both the dress and the jewelry are so gorgeous – and the person wearing them so fabulous – that we can’t do anything but gasp and applaud.

This next look is a little harder to get behind:

Fan Bingbing attends the L’Oreal And Cannes Film Festival 15th Anniversary Dinner in a Valentino Couture gown paired with clutch by Salvatore Ferragamo.

Salvatore Ferragamo Box Clutch

But y’know? We’ve been digging these Valentino couture gowns that look like something Laura Ingalls would’ve worn to her prom. They’re not for everyone, we admit, but Miss Fan is pulling this one off. But we have to say, it seems strange to pair a silver beaded clutch with a dress like this, especially since she appears to have eschewed jewelry, except for that ring.

  • fan is her family name, bingbing is her given name

    • nannypoo

      So, Bingbing Fan-Fanning.

      • Love Bing-bing fan-fanning. it sounds great. lol  the best name ever!

      • BerlinerNYC

         Perfect, like the Name Game. Throw in a “Banana-Fana” and we’re in business!

      • And back home she could still be Fan-Fanning Bingbing, just like the witch doctor told me. Ooh-Eeh-OohAhAh Fan-Fanning Wallawalla BingBing!

  • alyce1213

    Sorry, T-Lo — If Fan Bingbing married Dakota Fanning, she’d be Fanning Bingbing.  Which is also pretty cute.
    And if she married David Crosby – Crosby Bingbing.

    I love her in the Valentino.  But that’s not just anyone’s dress.

    • scrappy1

      So if she hyphenated, she’d be Fan-Fanning Bingbing?  That is really quite awesome.

    • Nariya

      Though if she started living in the US and decided to switch her names around to match the locals, it’d be Bingbing Crosby, which is pretty good. 

  • There is some serious cognitive dissonance going on with that second look.  Her makeup and hair are working. But that dress looks like grandma’s wedding wear from 1972. Ick.

    • bloggertobenamedlater

      I am glad someone else thinks that dress is awful, too. I can easily see Loretta Lynn wearing this in 1973, and it’s time to bury that dark period in fashion and not unearth old fashion skeletons from the closet.  Even if you are Valentino.

      • It would have to have much more bling to it for Loretta Lynn to have worn it, at least some sequins on the front. No, this would be an appropriate formal for a 1974 Christian school banquet (because they didn’t have a prom – no dancing).

    • But she makes it work way more than most people could.

      • bitchybitchybitchy

        She does pull it off, but it still comes close to making our new fashion idol look (gasp) almost matronly, and that can’t be good.

      • Question:  How can a dress the color of dust bunnies look so good on Fan Bingbing?

        Answer:     Because she’s SWINTONing it!

    • Feeling so old now to think that 1972 would be a grandma’s wedding wear date!   🙁   🙂  

    • MoHub

      Well, thank you very much! (Sarcasm alert!) I happen to have been married in 1972, and the gown not only looked nothing like that, but I would wear it again if it were still in existence.

    • MoHub

      Well, thank you very much! (Sarcasm alert!) I happen to have been married in 1972, and the gown not only looked nothing like that, but I would wear it again if it were still in existence.

    • Qitkat

      It’s damn close to the fabric I wore as bridesmaid for my brother’s wedding in 1979. My future sister-in-law sent me the fabric and pattern and I had to sew it myself!

  • Sobaika

    I think her surname is Fan.

    And she seems to be one of those magical creatures who can wear anything and make it work.

    • She really is. She’s the Asian Ms. Von Teese, her ‘everyday’ style is equally pitch perfect

      • Beardslee

        Pitch perfect – exactly!  This woman knows what she’s doing.

  • Le_Sigh

    “Fan Bingbing-Crosby”

    That’s it – I love you guys. 

    Did you notice her nails perfectly match both dresses also?  (They’re the same dark green as the accents in the Valentino).  THAT’S some detailing!

    • alyce1213

      She’s been wearing the same nail color since the first post.  I don’t have a problem with that because it works for subsequent outfits.
      After all, who has time for manicures when you’re at the Cannes Film Festival?

      • Le_Sigh

        So true! 

        I didn’t notice her nails in the first couple RC appearances, but color me truly impressed 🙂

    • Lisa_Cop

      They were that color (and matched) the Chinese Tang vase dress.

  • First outfit: FLAWLESS. Girl is WERQ-ing it so hard.
    I LOVE that second dress on her. She’s giving it the much needed sass to pull it off. However, that clutch is disingenuous. New clutch with it, and it gets a thumbs-up from me.

  • Color us amazed that people are actually trying to correct us on what was obviously a joke.

    • Sweeney Agonistes

       If multiple people are missing it, then the joke was not successful.

    • Beardslee

      Personally, I love it when you two are silly. You do it so well!  Thanks!

      • DebbieLovesShoes

        I agree.  Beloved Uncles make me so happy when they get their silly on.  Makes my whole dang day!  Bwa ha ha!  But I have to add, some of the comments to the name are making me giggle muchly.  :0)

    •  Amen.  I too, love it when you get your goofy on.

    • susu11

      I don’t know, I’m sure there are some people that aren’t aware about the Chinese first/surname situation. I think it’s just an automatic response in some people to want to point out these kind of tidbits on message boards. I don’t think the intent was to undermine the humor of your joke. (which I chuckled heartily over, thank you very much)

    • scrappy1

      I think it’s possible to appreciate/enjoy the joke and still want to correct the misunderstanding.  It’s a cultural sensitivity thing.  I learned something new.  E.g., that if she married Chandler Bing, she’d be Bing Bingbing.  🙂

      • Violina23

        Could that name *be* any crazier?

    • momato

      Yeah, I think people appreciated the jokes.  They were funny.  But you played it as if you didn’t know that her name is presented in the Asian style of surname first, and some wanted to point that out.I’m an Asian woman, and it’s nice when people acknowledge the culture.  The corrections seemed equally lighthearted.

      • I wouldn’t have known that. I mean, I know the surname comes first, but for a long time in Australia Chinese names (like if they were spoken about on TV or something) would be presented surname last. So I have become thoroughly confused and I don’t know enough about Asian names to say “Well of course Bingbing is a first name”. Unless she was a panda.

        • momato

          You mean, on Australian TV, it’s Tse Tung Mao and Jong Il Kim and not the other way around?  I don’t actually know who Fan Bingbing is, but she’d make a cute panda.

    • I hope you’ve learned your lesson.

  • GODDESS BITCH! ;___;
    it’s not fair… not… fair…

  • Jaspreet5

    She is gorgeous. I think both dresses look amazing. 

  • nannypoo

    I don’t like the fluffy dress, but it sort of works on her. She really is beautiful.

  • choco

    gah i just wanna know if her hair is detachable from her perpetual bun!

    • Bingbing bun… I’m going to walk around my apartment for hours saying that.

    • Bingbing bun… I’m going to walk around my apartment for hours saying that.

      • JuliaInBlack

        Heh.  Same here.  I haven’t stopped saying FAN BINGBING! (to myself, at least) since TLo’s first post about her. And with the same inflection and emphasis previously reserved only for CHINA CHOW!

  • TheOriginalLulu

    I’m a fan.

  • I really love her. Her style is absolutely impeccable and it helps that she’s a pretty decent actress too. She hasn’t gotten a major breakout role yet, I’m waiting for one, but I grew up watching her tv series and I had no idea she would explode to become such a major fashion star.

    • girliecue

      What TV series? I worship this woman and have no idea where she came from. Has she been in movies too?

      • joe_tey83

         She’s JIN SUO!!!

        JIN SUO!!!

  • RebeccaKW

    Look 2-I actually love, except the pouf right at the cuffs.  Looks odd.  But it’s really great on her, in spite of that.  Look 1 is flawless.   I also love how she’s just ‘casually’ leaning against the jewelry display.

    • AmandaCathleen

       I was thinking the same thing! Something about that pose is so fabulous yet endearing.

  • Pants_are_a_must

    WERQing both dresses like her life depends on it.

    To be fair, you won’t see a lot of designer clutches out there right now that will fit any of those Valentino dresses, which is why many actresses have eschewed accessories when wearing them. I dig the soft sparkliness of this one, but the shape is too severe for the dress.

  • Oh Em Gee, that green outfit is amazing. I’m not as gone on the print ensemble. I don’t think the gray is her best friend.

  • Judy_S

    Oh, she is so beautiful!  She can definitely hypnotize you into wanting a piece of her, e.g. her clutch or a goofy necklace or whatever. She seems to have used the same Ferragamo clutch in 3 of her 4 pictures you have posted, though (in 2 different colors) so maybe she has a contract…!

  • DaringMiss

    I totally agree that the dress/jewelry combo is too much.  A white or cream dress would have done it better – or even a flaming red dress would have done the trick.

    But those earrings are gorgeous.  Not enamoured of the necklace.

  • ChiliP

    I’m probably in the minority here, but I LOVE the second look. Maybe more than the first. She has the perfect coloring for that dress (and is probably the only person who can wear it without looking like a Little House on the Prairie extra).

  • Eclectic Mayhem

    This woman is EXQUISITE!

    • carolynmo

      I know! Love her!!!!

  • NinaBoo

    That second dress is almost a dead ringer for a junior bridesmaid dress I wore in 1978.  No kidding, except its primary color was burgundy.

  • AWS

    Lets face it, most Asian women can wear plaid with polka dots and get away with it.

  • introspective

    The green dress looks radiant. Matchy jewels and all, she still kills it here.

    The little house at the prom collection is hard for me to deal with. But she looks about as good as one can look in centuries old oklahoma couture.

    In all this bitch can WEAR some clothes. Consider me a *major* bingbing fan.

  • The second one looks like she yanked it out of Loretta Lynn’s closet, circa 1974.

  • lojoso

    And if she married Chandler Bing she would be Fan BIngbIng Bing.

  • Little_Olive

    I actually dig the second one more than the first, go figure.

  • Terence Ng

    Not that I expect non-Chinese/Chinese-speaking people to know this, but the play on words regarding her surname and a fan are at odds. Her surname is pronounced with a soft ‘ah’, not a hard ‘a’. Spelling-wise, it makes a logical pun, but pronunciation-wise, it doesn’t.

    Incidentally, the same issue has been happening with my Chinese family and my Italian brother-in-law, who they still call “FABio” instead of “FAHBio”.

    • BrooklynBomber

      She should marry you, and be Bingbing Ng (or Ng Bingbing for the traditionalists).

      • I used to know a Swedish girl who married a Vietnamese guy who then became Inga Ng.

  • Pennymac

    For goodness sake, this woman is just ridiculous! (In a fantastic way) I was made breathless by the first look and grudgingly admit she’s pulling off the second one, tho not to my taste. I wish my parents had named ME BingBing, although BingBing (Insert Irish surname here) just doesn’t cut it………

    Hmm Bing Bing Mctavish? Nope  Bing Bing McGillicuddy? Nope. Oh well, one can dream, I suppose.

  • Anathema_Device

    She looks fabulous in both gowns, and I don’t even care for that second one very much. That’s how much she’s werqin’ it. Agree with the greens fighting each other in that first outfit, but if I’d been offered those jewels to wear, I wouldn’t have said no either.

  • Fan seems to know she can pull off Little House on the Prarie couture.  She actually makes that dress likable and believable as a piece of fashion. 

  • E_bee

    I wonder how that clutch (in look #2) looks in person? In the photos where it picks up the light just right, it looks white, and I actually really like the way it pops against the drabs of the dress. In other photos it just blends and doesn’t look so hot… Except that in the close up you can see that it picks up the shininess of the trim fabric in a really subtle way, and I bet this effect is more evident in person. In which case it seems a pretty brilliant pairing: a subtle enhancement of a detail of the dress that can be seen on the ground, and an entirely different, but striking, effect when photographed correctly.

  • BrooklynBomber

    delete because of joke corrections

  • rafraf25

    The first outfit makes me want to be Fan Bingbing. The second one looks sweet but I don’t like that much skirt on her.

  • Chaiaiai

    I am LIVING for these posts.  Fan Bingbing, you are my spirit animal!

  • amywinns

    There is something I really like about the Valentino re-interpretation of the prairie-dress look. He/his house has sent the archetype through a filter and it’s come out as a reference point rather than a derivation. It’s not so “Little House” and I appreciate that. Plus, no super-modern Asian woman could wear such an outfit and look like a time-transplanted Midwestern farmer’s wife, so the distance between the new and old looks is even clearer. So I think this look is fantastic, and a savvy departure from the va-voom goddess outfits she has been presenting (such as the OMG EMERALDS!! YOWZA! one above). It shows nice versatility. I agree the sparkly clutch is an imperfect match, but it’s not egregious.

  • fursa_saida

    I actually really like the clutch with the dress. Not for everyone, but for the classic Chinese film glamor she’s working (and no, I don’t just mean she’s glamorous and Chinese, I mean the way the Chinese equivalent of Old Hollywood glamor looked, which was distinctive), it works.

    Also, she always has the most brilliant nail colors. Forest green? I don’t think I’ve ever seen that before.

  • Don’t like the coral-y lip but everything else is lovely, even if the first dress is drifting towards baby heads.

  • nancylee61

    I love the Valentino on her, and I love the green jewelry and the gown but too much boob showing. I think it takes away from her classiness and glamour. Distracting.

  • Judy_J

    She’s just gorgeous…a perfect China doll.

  • SpcilK

    Bingbing with the strings of my heart.

  • mjude

    dearest fan bingbing, welcome to the bitter kittens club.  am may i say we LOVE YOU.

  • understateddiva

     I’m glad TLo are coming around on that Valentino collection.  It’s not everyone’s cup of tea, but I really think it’s interesting.

  • unbornfawn

    She sure knows how to present herself as a glamorous movie star! I’m loving me some Bingbing for that alone!

  • saanrio

    Love it.  ALL of it.  Even the silver beaded clutch.  It works, just because it isn’t what you’d expect.  That is part of the wonderful that is Fan BingBing.

    And yes, it would take something truly horrendous to make me say anything bad about her, ever.

  • Sophie Collier

    I don’t mind the clutch, but some softer hair would have been a better call for the more romantic dress.  

  • LUV this woman. She manages to stun in every look.

  • I am ready for that Valentino collection to die.

  • Just don’t let Ginnifer Goodwin see that second dress, and we should be safe. I don’t like the matchy-not-matchy emeralds, either. That was one dress that probably had enough bling-bling.

    • MilaXX

      Shirley Mason of the band Garbage was on Jimmy Fallon wearing that same flowered jumpsuit that Ginnefer Godwin wore the other day and somehow it worked. 

      • kimmeister

        That’s because Shirley Manson is naturally fabulous, and Ginnifer is not.

        • MilaXX

          True. but it’s funny to see an outfit you just trashed work so well.

    • MilaXX

      Shirley Mason of the band Garbage was on Jimmy Fallon wearing that same flowered jumpsuit that Ginnefer Godwin wore the other day and somehow it worked. 

  • Elias Pineda

    u guys cant take any criticism but yes it was obviously a joke haha

  • I really, REALLY want that necklace!

  • mmc

    This first dress knocks it out of the park.  The color!  The fit!  So beautiful!

  • MilaXX

    I am loving the Fan Bingbing post! She is indeed fabulous. Love the first look even if she is bordering on babyhead boob territory. Even more surprising I like the second look even though I hated when SJP and Lily Collins wore similar looks. Such is the power of Fan.

  • The almost-matchy jewelry and nails in the first look are giving me eye twitches, and although I agree that that Valentino would be much worse on almost anyone else, I’m still not convinced it’s really working. Still, her (or her stylist’s) instincts are good and I’m interested to see more of her.

    Also, I think she’s worn that same lip color for at least three of the four looks TLo have featured, and I’d like to see that change up a bit.

  • if she married Chandler Bing, she could become Fan Bingbing-Bing. like y’do.

  • if she married Chandler Bing, she could become Fan Bingbing-Bing. like y’do.

    If she married Gerald McBoing Boing, she would be, what?, Fan-McBoingBoing Bing Bing. 

    No matter — she wears clothes exceptionally well.  Either has a great eye or someone top-notch advising her — or both — She looks fantastic in both dresses.  I love the green green action on the Bing Bing — and think the Valentino looks beautiful on her.   Beautiful print and sleeves on that second look.  Bravissima.

  • Rachel S.

    Her boobs look magnificent in that first dress. They’re like, perfect spheres. That bitch.

    • Sartorial_She

       Right? Mesmerizing decolletage.

    • kimmeister

      Perfect, without being SO spherical that they look fake.  Sigh . . .

      • Lisa_Cop

        Yes, VERY fake.

        • Rachel S.

          Hey if fake can look that good I want some of that fakeness!

    • TieDye64

      Gotta say I thought the same thing. And was jealous. Bitch.

  • clairellis

    Who is Fan? Sorry I probably sound dumb, but I have no clue who she is, but she’s pretty!

  • I love her and the dresses, but I can’t get behind heart shaped stones. 

  • Is she ever not going to look staggeringly gorgeous? Get out of here Miss Thing, I live for you.

  • Sara LaBatt

    I think that green dress with the green jewels, for a jewel party, is about perfect.  And I love her pose with the hand on the necklace, like “this old thing?  I just had it lying around!”  The second dress, I think it’s pretty and romantic but not a stunna.

    Not about fashion, but the she has such a beautiful face shape, and her skin is so lovely, I just like to look at her.

  • What I am so amazed at is her skin/complexion!  Look how close up those pictures are- and she is FLAWLESS.  Someone please tell me they’ve been photoshopped so I can quit being as green as those emeralds….

  • SewingSiren

    I love both looks. She can play both sides of the coin . What an actress she must be, she is certainly a much better model than the majority.

  • CozyCat

    The color of the jewels in the first picture may not really match, but the shape of the necklace really plays off the neckline of the dress. 

    The second dress can only be worn by someone really young, fresh and pretty.  Otherwise it would be very aging.  But I can see how it would be appealing after all the see-through, low cut fashion of the last few years.

    ps.  Chandler Bing / Bing BingBing–for the win!

  • joancarol

    If she married Tony Soprano, she could be Fan Bada-Bing.

  • PaulaBerman

    I kind of love her, even though I am not totally sure who she is. Everything she does works for me, though I admit to being uncritical because she is so freaking fabulous. If she married Jack Chandler, she’d be Bingbing Chandler, which sounds like something Janis would say when drunk.

  • BeeBeauNYC

    The Elie Saab and Chopard jewelry are really just stunning – what an amazing look – she looks crazy beautiful. I actually like the Big Love dress too – if you’re gonna dress Mormon, at least go sheer!

  • I love the emerald look.

  • Lisa Dugan

    I actually love the 2nd look.  Something softer with her hair and a different clutch would have been better.  The 1st look is pretty darn fabulous.  

  • lesmaha

    she’s such perfection.

  • Funkykatt

    I wore that second dress to my junior prom. Everyone else was in Gunne Sax but me!

    • Ksagun13

      I wore Gunne Sax to my freshman homecoming dance.  I loved that dress.

  • MightyMarshal

    She looks great in both, but I LOVE her in that Valentino, and even like it with that clutch. Girl can work it. We need her to be more famous and present in American pop culture just so we can look at her.

  • butterflysunita

    The green dress is another WERQ for me.  Not sold on the Laura Ingalls Wilder dress, which is quite ugly, though her beauty and attitude carry it off.  

  • Allison Woods

    I can totally get behind #2. I love it actually.

    The thing about #1 that I don’t like is her rack looks way too big for her little Chinese frame.

  • Sally Brownson

    I think the black nails are what’s making the Valentino look not sister-wife.

  • Ksagun13

    I love the Ellie Saab dress, but I’m feeling nitpicky, so I’m going to quibble.  I hate what it’s doing to her boobs and I can get past the jewelry not matching, but there’s too much of it.   I think the necklace is too much, just the earrings would have been gorgeous with the sequined dress.

    And sorry, but the Valentino is just an expensive sisterwife dress.  

  • It Hurt’s To Be In Love


  • She seriously look like a porcelain doll, I can’t believe her perfect looks. I don’t believe she’s 100% human either.

  • Clearly Miss Fan can pull a lot of shit off. Both are stunning, IMO. Awesome.

  • What is this woman?!?! Flawless. Just flawless.

  • Good God she is fabulous.  I actually love the Valentino dress.  And that whole green ensemble is STUNNING.

  • another_laura

    Far be it from me to EVER complain about someone wearing such fabulous emeralds, but  yeah, it wouldn’t have been my choice….

  • I’m kind of obsessed with her now after all these posts. 

  • Lina_bee

    She is cute as a bug but that Valentino breaks my soul.

  • turtleemily

    I like the second outfit more – all the green washes out her skin tone.

  • Joyce VG


  • Kolo_Ol

    I actually like the second better than the first 🙂

  • charlotte

    Bingbing jokes aside- I like that she kept her real name.
    I know a bunch of Chinese people who changed their names into English-sounding names to appear internationally adequate (and of course not to mention all those celebs with “marketing names”).
    I do get their point, but staying true to one’s original identity is quite admirable.
    And yes, she is absolutely gorgeous.

  • guest2visits

    Both dresses could look heavy, or old and frumpy on alot of people; but she has again made them beautiful.
    She needs to find another shade of lip color, this the same through out the past several dresses.
    Wondering what the price tag is on this pile of emeralds.

  • rougeort

    Anyone else noticed this girl’s OBSESSION with Elie Saab? She wears her clothes in every TLO post.

    • ChiliP

       Fyi, Elie Saab is a man. And out of the 4 dresses featured, two have been by Elie Saab (plus a clutch), so I’m not sure it’s obsession territory.

  • Funny how the first thing I thought when I saw the first picture was: “Wow, she’s like a chinese version of Dita von Teese”. She has that same power of WERQ-ing a look that should be boring or safe.

    She sure cuts a striking figure in the first look, and she’s selling the second look, which would look boring or matronly on every other woman.

  • SorayaS

    She is perfection!! She is in permanant WERQ mode.

  • Haley Buchanan

    I don’t know who this girl is, but she is FABULOUS!

  • Susan Crawford

    As far as I’m concerned, let Ms. Fan wear anything her little heart desires, because she is perfection. And even though the emeralds DO clash a teensy bit with the gown, well, let’s let it slide – after all, they’re EMERALDS, so they get an automatic pass.

  • Megan Patterson

    Nope, I am buying both of them. 

  • TieDye64

    She’s a WERQing girl. It’s all she knows how to do. WERQ.

  • Fan BingBing’s breakthrough role was a maid in a popular 24-episode period drama for TV. It was a very small role. Rumor was that BingBing was originally assigned to one of the leading roles but somehow the producer changed her mind and made BingBing the maid of that leading role.  Although BingBing was let down, her performance and beauty still drew a lot of attention. The drama was so papular, they made a 48-episode sequel later. This time Fan BingBing was still the maid, but she had her own story line.And  the rest was history. It is really interesting to see her transformed from a little humble maid to the owner of a production studio and a high-fasion diva!

  • Joanie Hunt

    I love her in both of these gowns. The green one is stunning! The more muted one is just perfect to really show off her gorgeous face!

    I still don’t know who this is, but she’s my new favorite.  I’m going to watch all her films (actress, right?).  Love her.

    (Plus, I wish I had anything that came from something called “the Red Carpet Collection.”)

    Wow but that green gown is a stunner.  She’s doing a fine job of wearing the 2nd, but just don’t love it.

  • She makes my head go all unicorns and confetti and puppies.

  •  Bing means cookie in Mandarin. Double cookie. Call her “Oreo”

    Yes, please *more* Fan Bingbing!  She’s a study in fabulosity.

    It’s been a long while since I’ve been this capdivated by a starlette I’ve never heard of.  Off to IMDB…….

  • TLo giving passes on babyhead boobs? Say it ain’t so! Fan Bingbing’s gonna be all “TLo said it was ok” and go on doing it messing up this fab streak she’s got going on. Then it’s going to become infectious from celeb to celeb, and all cuz TLo let the bar drop for Miss Bingbing-bam-fabulous.

    TLo keep it real!
