Yeah, she’s belted too tight and he should hem his pants. But they have cheekbones to die for, so it doesn’t matter as much. Life’s a bitch that way. We didn’t make the rules, darlings. That’s just the way it works.

Besides, we can’t hate when we’re looking at a gorgeous man in a floral freaking tuxedo. It’s tough to stay bitchy when someone went to that kind of effort.

Although the fact that his tie matches her dress? That’s causing eyelid twitches.

    The beauty is blinding me. That’s a damn gorgeous dress, as an aside. But wow, their everything.

  • Scimommy

    Love his tux, hate the dress on her. Ship it to Helen Mirren, Fan – she’ll find excellent use for it during the next award season.

  • Cyprienne Zed

    An embarrassment of riches — these two could look amazing in garbage bags, even.

    • ballerinawithagun

      I love that phrase, thank you!

  • Ashleigh

    Don’t even care what she’s wearing – Mr. Xiaoming is killing it.
    I always say, Asian is the new black! 🙂

  • deelup

    I’m liking a floral tuxedo. I’m shocked by this.

  • LeelaST

    Pretty, but looks like too much dress for her, like it’s too big or something. I can’t stop looking at his puddling pant legs. Cheekbones are no match for a good fit.

    • Beardslee

      Yes, they look like beautiful children raiding the grownups’ wardrobe.

  • Sarah

    She’s beautiful, but the more I look at that dress, the more I don’t like it. Too mature, too heavy, too dingy-colored. He looks great, but yeah; he needs a brighter tie with that jacket.

    • SouthernGirlRena

      I agree Sarah. The dress looks like dryer lint with glitter. It is only her magical beauty that make it shine.

    • @Biting Panda

      It’s nearly literally Angelina ‘s dress. But since this is Fan, I’ll pretend it isn’t.
      He is adorable, but the tie…oy.

      • SugarSnap108

        “Angelina” was my instant reaction to this dress.

    • kimmeister

      When you have that coloring, you can wear almost every jewel tone known to man, and then you pick greige? Tsk.

    • mila_8

      She usually brings such drama. This definitely fell flat.

    • d4divine

      I think no tie or a black tie…let the floral WERK

  • Robin

    beautiful pair! I do like to think that the tie is matching the lighter parts of the flowers instead of her dress to make it a little better

    • juniper

      precisely on the tie matching belief. stay strong with me on that.

    • kimmeister

      Are they a couple?

      • demidaemon

        Is it okay that I hope not? Just a little?

  • Danielle

    I think this floral was the floral I was hoping to see Andrew Garfield deploy a few posts back.

  • He is cute!

    • lundibleu

      Isn’t he just! And she is gorgeous as usual.

  • Kate4queen

    He looks beautiful. 🙂

  • KinoEye

    Such fashion. So fierce. Much cheekbones. Can’t deal. Brain explode from fabulous.

    • MK03

      Much gorgeous. Wow.

    • Glam Dixie

      Now y’all sound just like my kids,haha.

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      I’ve just cast these two in my fantasy sequel to “Only Lovers Leff Alive”, in which there will be a vampire face-off between the cheekbones of these two and Tilda and HIddles. Talk amongst yourselves now.

      • Anna

        That is inspired.

  • 25or6to4

    Despite the dingy color, I am really liking this gown… Perhaps not the best fit (both literally and figuratively) for Fan, but still quite lovely. Also, I hate to be that person, but in regards to the caption beneath the first image I’m assuming that she is holding a clutch from Louis Vuitton, not Louis “Vuiton”

  • B_C_J

    Ugh – her dress is way too long & there is way too much gathered fabric at the waist and it looks over embellished. He looks like a Las Vegas entertainer & I cringe when I see a fake bow tie.

  • decormaven

    Her gowns are usually so exquisitely fitted, this must have been rushed to the site just moments before she donned it. I like his jacket, but tsk tsk on the too-long pants hem.

  • Judy_J

    I would love to have that floral tuxedo jacket.

  • traceyishere

    The tie was a mistake…is this the prom in 1982? Love the jacket on him, the dress on her is just ok – she needs to not wear blush tones.

  • traceyishere

    Who is HE wearing?

  • a_liking

    YES!!! East Asian celebrity men wear some of the best red carpet fashion (and, arguably, some of the worst). glad to see that getting recognition here!!

    • mariahwg

      So Ji Sub is my favorite of East Asian WTFery. But mostly, I love the ability of Asian men to rock this kind of thing. I just saw that G Dragon and Tayang are going to be selling a photo book of them at Paris Fashion week, and thought, “I might actually buy that.” Which, Christ, I am much to old for.

  • lunchcoma

    Who knew a floral tuxedo could look so good? Maybe he’ll start a trend?

    Fan Bingbing looks great in that dress, but she looks great in everything. On her personal scale, this is below average. Still a pleasure to look at, of course.

  • MilaXX

    I am loving Huang’s jacket, but his pants disappoint. Same with Fan BingBing, she looks gorgeous as usual, but the dress is a skoosh too long and the belt one notch to tight. Only their collection beauty surmounts all that.

  • Sif

    I’ve loved them both since day one. They are both talented actors, and have come a long way. And I Can’t wait to see Fan BingBing in the new X-Men movie.

  • Addicted2Glamour

    I’m confused. In the comments for the recent Wang Bridal post the Bitter Kittens were put on notice for making negative comments about the models’ physicality and styling as it related to the relative like or dislike of the clothing and yet today these looks (a gown that looks quite frankly dragged through a trough of molded, sugary tea and a tux with pants that look fitted for a man well over six feet tall) are praised as “amazingly beautiful” and “spectacular” simply because the two people wearing them have “cheekbones to die for.” Just sayin’ …

    • Denise Alden

      “sayin’ . . .” What exactly? That we’re inconsistent? “Do I contradict myself? Very well, then I contradict myself. I am large, I contain multitudes.” WW. And I am actually large 🙂

      • Addicted2Glamour

        No, I’m just saying that it seems to me slightly hypocritical on the part of TLO. I don’t mean to sound huffy and bitchy, I have the upmost respect for the gentlemen. Maybe I just need to have a glass of wine and get over it.

        • Denise Alden

          That’s the story of my life. But it involves a proper gin martini and getting over it! Cheers!

          • Addicted2Glamour

            Your idea sounds so much better. 🙂

        • I have absolutely no idea what you’re trying to say here, but the Vera Wang post got closed because comments were being made calling the models “emaciated child prostitutes.” So because we won’t allow that kind of commentary here, we’re hypocrites for noting that two beautiful people are beautiful?

          • Addicted2Glamour

            I read too much into your closing the comments off. I assumed (and that was obviously my first mistake) that you closed the thread comments because the Kittens were criticizing the clothing because of the looks and styling of the models. And when I see you give high praise to looks that you on the one hand criticize but give a “pass” due to the physical appearance of the people wearing them…hypocritical is perhaps not the right word. Maybe I saw it was a double standard. I never saw the “emaciated child prostitutes” comment in the thread – which really takes it to a level of offensive. As I said above, I have nothing but the highest respect for you both. I am guilty of mouthing off without first getting the entire story. And for that I apologize. If I could remove every post of this thread I would, but it should probably stay, if nothing else, for a reminder to think (and read) before you speak. Mea Culpa.

          • No biggie. Apology accepted. You didn’t have the whole story.

          • Addicted2Glamour

            Cheers, gentlemen. And when you find time in your calendar, bring your fine butts down South to sign some books and press the Paws of some of your devoted Bitter Kittens. Charleston, Atlanta, Savannah…? Southern Hospitality has to be experienced to fully appreciate.

    • Imasewsure

      Praising beauty and forgiving ankle puddles (because Bing Bing and because jacket) is quite different than body snarking and being harpies about size which is what we were all doing in the Wang post. We were duly scolded….and deservedly so….

      • Addicted2Glamour

        Noted. And lesson learned.

  • Watterson

    Fan Bingbing and Lupita Nyong’o need to star in some kind of movie where they’re on screen together wearing fabulous clothes and doing fabulous things (and being fabulous lesbians as long as a girl’s dreaming).

    • Evan

      I’d prefer to see both of them dominating men and making them do whatever they want at their whim. Faux lesbianism is so tired and is mainly geared toward straight men. Maybe they could do an editorial together in dominatrix inspired haute couture.

      • bitchybitchybitchy

        I’d buy that fashion editorial for a dollar(or two).

      • Watterson

        Or they could be actual lesbians and you could try not tell a queer girl that dominatrixes deserve more representation than she does. Because god knows we have so many stories about WoC falling in love with each other.

        • Or you could let other people say what kind of imaginary movies they want to see without telling them how wrong they are for wanting to see them.

          • Watterson

            Yeah, shit, reading over my comment in the morning, I’m sorry about how harshly I responded. The whole idea of “faux-lesbianism for straight guys” is one of those personal sore spots that makes me go from chill to “omg how dare you” in a heartbeat, and I should have deep-breathed that shit out.

          • S’alright. We’ve all been there.

        • Evan

          But as far as we know, they’re not lesbians, so it would be faux lesbianism. Sounds like you took what I said as a personal attack when it wasn’t.

  • MK03

    They’re stunning, but GTNYD. It looks like a dirty old slip that someone Beadazzled.

  • Aidan B

    I deflated slightly when I got to his ankle puddles. Sigh. So close to perfection.

  • I want his jacket!! I wouldn’t be able to wear it anywhere, but I want it.

  • ChelseaNH

    I don’t think the dress is doing anything for her. Not that she really needs anything done for her. His tie makes me twitchy, too, but the bravado of a floral tuxedo coat is enough to overcome anything.

  • kipper

    I cant with the puddle of sad that is that train …. this is close to pulling a Jolie.

  • msdamselfly

    He’s the real star in these photos.. That jacket is gorgeous. Wish I could pronounce his name.

  • butterflysunita

    They are both just dripping with beauty, style and general fabulousness.

  • ashtangajunkie

    All I can see is his jacket. Therefore I have nothing about which to complain.

  • Everything is awesome and would be awesomer without that horrid backdrop

  • CT14

    I wish Andrew Garfield’s floral pants from the other day had had this pattern instead.

    Oh, these two? Simply gorgeous. The belt and the pants hem cannot stop the beauty.

  • MW

    The dress is awful, it’s his jacket that saves these pictures.

    Seriously, my dislike for black lacey dresses will never match my hatred for taupe see-through ones. Ew.

  • Evan

    Love his tux. Don’t like the star above her bosom. Too literal a design motif for me. I prefer things to be more abstract.

  • LadyVimes

    She is working the Sad Boobs. Support is crucial, ladies! Hoist those up!
    Love his look, but they both need to stand up straight. OWN those cheekbones.

  • Neil Fortin

    Anyone know where that jacket is from??

  • bitchybitchybitchy

    Clapping hands with glee, because we have a Fan BingBing sighting, and with a lovely man to boot. Not sure that’s a great dress for her, but they are so pretty together, and I love his flowered tux.

  • demidaemon

    WOW. Just wow. If only he had hemmed his pants, he could have been a ManWERQ.

  • Imasewsure

    It’s pretty but I don’t love her dress… but I love love his tuxedo!

  • alyce1213

    Gee, I don’t think that dress does anything for her and vice versa. It’s an Angelina Jolie glitter sack — I don’t approve.
    He’s cute and I like the floral jacket.

  • SugarSnap108

    I agree on the “amazingly beautiful people” part, and the floral tuxedo jacket is fabulous. But that dress is way too drab for Ms. Bingbing.

  • kcnitch

    Her dress should not be puddling on the floor. That dress just doesn’t work for her at all.

  • Shawn EH

    Is her Louis Vuitton the Hellraiser cube?

  • Fan Bingbing is feeling her oats in two of these shots.

  • Mary Elizabeth Poytinger Baume

    my life has not been the same without some fan bing bing in it

  • Sara Hottman

    Put them and Pitt/Jolie in one room and the universe would collapse into a black hole of beauty.

    • Fordzo a.k.a. Fancy Mukluks

      Brad was serving up the ‘too cool to care/homeless person’ vibe for so long that I’m totally over him. Even now that he’s back to going around looking freshly showered, I’m unimpressed.

  • TLJezebel

    It looks like the dress Angelina Jolie wore to the Oscars. Sorry, not even the Fabulous Miss Bing Bing can make it work. Too frumpy dumpy.

  • FridaStaire

    I love the tie-matching tie-in! Reminds me of my girlfriend’s mothers approach to family dressing – everyone has to have the same pattern on somewhere (you can imagine the psychological trauma this causes in adolescence).

  • boweryboy

    I don’t know who Huang Xiaoming is but I have a new boy crush. He’s a cutie but damn, he needs to hem those pants.

  • quiltrx

    These two look like they should be on top of a really fabulous wedding cake.

  • d4divine

    Yes they are both gorgeous human beings, unfortunately the small errors are piling up…no amount of pretty can makeup for poorly fitted clothing…his tie is the final nail in the coffin….

  • Clash D

    Damn, I want that floral tuxedo. I’d rock the shit out of that floral tuxedo too.

  • Sophie

    Elie Saab feels like a safe choice for the Bingbing. It feels like even more of a safe choice next to the floral jacket, but I guess they needed only one focal point.

  • Scott Cooper

    Her dress looks like a carnival death shroud. It’s horrible. And his jacket is nice, but not for a formal event.

  • MarissaLG

    It’s a beautiful gown, but it doesn’t fit her. It’s just too big and it seems like they belted it too tight to compensate.

  • Judy_S

    He looks great. She… well, she just proved she’d look beautiful wearing a gunny sack.

  • Patrick Cleary


  • lalahartma

    I don’t care for her dress, but love his jacket!

  • Darcy H

    … are they not allowed to touch each other?

    • xmixiex

      my thought exactly!

  • Rhonda Shore

    Just spectacular.

  • RutGot

    I don’t know, I think that dress is waaaaaay too matronly for the gorgeousness that is Fan BingBing. But loving his whole thing.

  • LJCdoc

    Yeah, I like it from right above the belt up. But still, Fan BingBing, who I’ve dreadfully missed! I’d be happy if my life was made entirely of Fan BingBing and Lupita.

  • webslice33

    not a good dress for Bingbing, and the pant hem is terrible…a waste of a great jacket…

  • kategs

    She is so completely lovely that I can almost forgive that dress. It’s fine but it’s just not that level of OMG WOW we normally get from her.

  • xmixiex

    gorgeous. also it looks like they’re going to great lengths to not touch. like, she has her arm behind her, or up on her head.

  • lillyvonschtupp

    There’s a Fan doll coming out later this year that I am dying to get my hands on.
