Li Bingbing in Erdem at the “Transformers: Age of Extinction” Beijing Premiere

Posted on June 24, 2014

We admit, we take a bitchy sort of glee in posting Miss Bingbing’s red carpetry on this Transformers poledance.

Because she’s a total “HAHA FUCK NO” to the idea that the ladystars of the Chinese cinema are somehow more innately chic than the standard Hollywood version.  Miss Lady is TACKY-ASS. And we don’t mind saying it. She clearly has a thing for sheer paneled skirts, which is bad enough, but she’s really upped her tacky game with this sheer-panted jumpsuit.

SHEER-PANTED JUMPSUIT, people. You’ve gotta respect the commitment.

And the funny part is, from the waist up, she’s pretty much the picture of polished elegance. It’s like she’s scrolldown-trolling us.

We think we love her for it. We hope she ends this poledance wearing light-up granny panties under a sheer romper.

    Say no to sheer, Bingbing.

    • Alexis Wenceslao

      She is blessing the fans with her tackyass invisible glitter

  • Your outfit suggestion sounds like something Katy Perry would wear to perform one of her barely-veiled innuendo songs. Perhaps a tune called “Honey Pot” that appears to be about the Hundred Acre Wood?

  • Danielle

    I QUIT. Call The Greater Bingbing and get some tips.

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      It’s as if Li has decided that she ain’t playing the Greater Bingbing’s style game and has gone 360 degrees in the opposite directions. She is committed to the sheer bottoms, isn’t she?

      • MoHub

        180 degrees if you’re talking opposites.

        • bitchybitchybitchy

          I stand corrected-180 degrees is what I meant. Math was never my strong point

          • MoHub

            Well, I’ll admit that I fell apart mathematically right after Algebra II. I never could “get” Trigonometry, and I never progressed beyond that.

          • bitchybitchybitchy

            Algebra was the beginning of the end for me and math. Word problems were always trials. I could grasp certain geometry and trig concepts, but most left me in the dust. I had to take the late 60’s version of math for dummies for my college math requirement.

    • kirkyo

      Not a fan.

  • Janet B

    Pockets, too?

  • kathryn_dc

    o_O With her hands in the pockets, that center seam is doing her lady garden NO favors.

    • kimmeister

      And they made the poor runway model walk that way too!

      • Jennifer Bober

        …but the model looks pissed about it. 🙂

        • Shawn EH

          She’s bumbed she had to wear the Bermuda shorts rather than the hotpants!

          • Jennifer Bober


  • suzq

    Brava! You rock that sheer pantsuit, Li. Just don’t get your spiked heel caught in the hem. We’ll have to bill you for that repair.

    • Sarah

      She clearly has no cats.

      • mjude


  • thecitysleeps

    OMG often designers do their work while high and then pat themselves on the back for a job well done, right?

  • Sarah

    I can’t explain why, but the fact that these are sheer PANTS and not another sheer-fronted gown somehow makes them EVEN WORSE. It’s like her legs are elaborately wrapped Japanese candies.

    • conniemd

      Plus the granny panties underneath are pinching her crotch. Just look at her inside thighs and the musculature and realize they really are close to showing her good china.

      • Sarah

        Oh, I saw it. That first shot is highly questionable in that regard.

      • littlemac8

        The organza makes it look like her thighs are melting flesh – no the look she was going for, I’d guess!

  • smh4748

    A sheer pantsuit. There are so many thought processes I’d love to follow here: the designer, who thought this was a great idea. The person who constructed the garment. The actress or stylist who thought this was a must-wear. I’m just so intrigued about how this happens at every stage of the process!

    Also, turns out wrinkly sheer material creates odd effects on one’s legs. Something to keep in mind, if any of you are ever in the market for a sheer pantsuit.

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      You know these people probably sat down early in the process in a room full of box wine and designed this after a long night of heaving imbibing.

      • Carleenml

        you mean heavy imbibingbing.

        • bitchybitchybitchy

          Well played!

  • Aidan B

    Dear God, I’ve now seen everything. A sheer. Jumpsuit. It will take time for that to sink in. Also, that model actually looks dead. I’m scared.

    • evave2

      This just does not look good The thought process behind this is completely off the wall.

  • Audrey Lee

    This is HILARIOUS. Oh man oh man. I’m definitely hoping for glowy granny panties in the future.

    • greyhoundgirl

      Right? I think she also thinks it’s hilarious and that’s why she’s wearing it.

  • NMMagpie

    I love TLO in high octane mode.

    But those pants? Just say NO.

  • Angela_the_Librarian

    Wow, I thought it was a dress until the last picture. Sheer pantsuit legs..does not compute!!!

  • kimmeister

    Her chest is too broad for that bodice. The lighting in the first and last pictures looks like it must be terrible, and yet her face still looks amazing (and the same color as her shoulders and arms).

  • marlie

    Is she contractually obligated to wear sheer skirts? Because WHY??

    ETA: What the everliving hell… those are PANTS? OK, I’m done with this one.

  • Anna

    Without Tacky Bingbing, one cannot know Elegant Bingbing.

    • stellamaris73

      Yep, in the Battle of the Bingbings, I’m afraid Fan Bingbing takes it.

      • Carleenml

        It’s definitely not a battle. A battle indicates a worthy adversary. Just no, to the Li.

  • jilly_d

    I’m gagging AND vomiting….I’m……gavomiting.

    • Kristi Mitchell

      My new favorite word!

      • jilly_d

        I have to give credit to Dr. Cox from Scrubs for that one.

    Can I Win Project Runway? Does my pantsuit shit in the woods?

    • megawatt

      Age: 41. Seriously.

      • Constant Reader

        She’s 41? I need to know how many virgins she’s sacrificed to look that young.

      • stellamaris73

        I did a double take. We share a birth year but clearly not a pact with satan. Sigh.

      • And I’d have believed it if you’d said she’s 25.

  • sugarkane105

    Her choice in outfits is clearly as refined as her choice in movie roles.

  • what not

    I…How is this a garment?

  • YourBaloneyDontGotNoSecondName

    Is she the Chinese Vanessa Hudgens?

  • nannypoo

    She’s so pretty and she looks like she’d be a lot of fun. But how hard can it be to find a dress with a solid skirt?

  • FibonacciSequins

    Agree with you TLo, except I’m not a fan of breasts awkwardly bulging out the sides of the top of one’s strapless sheer-panted jumpsuit. That’s not polished or elegant.

  • frannyprof

    She’s what Bai Ling tries, but fails, to be.

    • Constant Reader

      Yes. And the fact that Bai Ling is outclassed by a sheer-panel peep dress and a sheer-panted jumpsuit really should make Bai rethink her life choices.

  • MilaXX

    Is she trying to out batshit Bai Ling? This would have been totally cute as shorts.

  • mjude

    dear god I did not realize those were pants. why bingbing why?

  • lunchcoma

    I’m hoping fashion designers everywhere see her pole dance and acknowledge that the sheer trend is over (not that it was ever under, but I’d like them to get distracted by something less hideous).

  • Imasewsure

    “We hope she ends this poledance wearing light-up granny panties under a sheer romper.” AMEN bring it trashy gurl!!

    • Or the light up coming from some major wattage something she’s got clenched in her labia a la light up whatever CeeLo Green was sporting behind clenched teeth on stage there for a bit.

  • Mr. J.

    Tragic. Disturbing.

  • Mothra

    OMG! Did she lose a bet or something?

  • Kent Roby

    That last shot KILLS me; it’s hysterically bad!

  • Gatto Nero

    And the bodice was so promising.

    • decormaven

      True! What a sorrowful scrolldown.

  • Steve Ek

    Maybe it’s an homage to the sheer pantsuit Streisand wore to accept her Oscar way back when. I remember mom being scandalised!

  • Alloy Jane

    I laughed aloud and then shouted “WHY???” I think that says it all.

  • alyce1213

    It IS in her contract.
    The top was promising, ‘though too tight, there’s underarm bulge.

  • dschubba

    TLo, I expect to see this one again at the end of the year.

  • greyhoundgirl

    Hysterical. She looks like she’s having a blast.

  • Bad Idea Jeans

    This is so insane that I kind of love it. Yes, it is tacky, but she is owning it.

  • greyhoundgirl

    I have to say–it also cracks me up that so many of you are taking it so seriously! I’m seeing it as a really funny joke.

  • Glam Dixie

    HAHA FUCK NO, was pretty much my entire response to this outfit.

  • demidaemon

    Sheer organza jumpsuit. Those three words say it all, and they are not saying anything good.


  • Kristi Mitchell

    Probably going to get totally skewered for this, but I actually think I’d like it had the pants fit better. Not tight, but not so ‘circus tent’ looking. It is summer after all, so a sheer flowery pants suit (that’s well fitted) could be kind of cute. Still, I’ll take this over the long sleeved heavy wintery dresses and jackets some lady stars are wearing right now.

  • JP

    Geez, yesterday with that yellow thing, I thought “what’s with the sheer panels?!” and today she does it again. With pants. OMG.

  • Tracy_Flick

    Her hair looks terrible too.

  • Sophie

    Until I saw this was a pantsuit, I thought it was a step-up from before, because at least both legs were sheer-panelled. I like symmetry on these occasions. And then I realised this is a pantsuit and I just can’t.

  • LadyVimes

    Sheer….jump….suit……sheer-PANTED…..jumpsuit. *conniption*

  • livesarah

    It is for Transformers, you said? Expecting classy would really be too much. She’s probably contractually obliged to be trashy. And girl is FIT. She has obvious muscles. I don’t mean to stereotype Asian starlets, but I find that really impressive.

  • GeoDiva

    I am laughing so hard that I am crying. I have never seen anything so ridiculous! Sheer jumpsuit?!?!?!? This has to be on your Bottom 10 List.

  • Yoshio

    If there was any doubt, she is definitely having us on…each look is progressively more outrageous than the last. How long does this pole dance go on? I can hardly wait!

  • snarkykitten

    Dear god why

  • How does she P in that thing?

  • quiltrx

    But, you know…I have to give her a tiny bit of props here. She distracted me from what a defective idiot of a director Michael Bay is, for about 3 seconds.

  • TigerLaverada

    This outfit made me laugh out loud. It’s rare that clothes can cause that much merriment. Well done, Erdem and Li Bingbing! Your legs look like they’re melting.

  • Fuchsiaforever

    Excuse me but what idea is that you are talking about? Chinese stars being more chic than Hollywood stars….? Never heard of that!

  • Fuchsiaforever

    Can’t wait for her next fucked up tacky ass look!!!

  • Tanya Wade

    I love this crazy bitch. That is all.

  • boweryboy

    Sooo…is this her thing? Sheer madness?

    First I recoiled when I scrolled down. Then I had to step away from my computer when I realized it was a jumpsuit! The hell?

    I have to admit she’s piqued my interest. I can’t wait to see what she wears next. I suppose if everyone thinks you’re Fan Bingbing you’ve gotta do something to set yourself apart. She’s succeeding in spades.

  • mmebam

    Fuck it. I love it.

  • d4divine

    Initially I was amused, but when I realized she was wearing pants…I was horrified and amused.
    P.S. Don’t tell Miss Thing she is not the crown diva. Lol

  • MoHub

    What is wrong with this woman? Maybe she needs to make an appointment with her ophthalmologist.

  • RescueMe23

    I sense a theme to her RC looks…all sheer panels for the last 3 I believe.

  • Laura Livingston

    She is totally screwing with us…right?

  • fursa_saida

    I feel like I’m hallucinating. This can’t exist. It CAN’T.

  • ktr33

    The bodice is beautiful. And then you weep.

  • All that effort… wasted.

  • AnneElliot

    I truly wish I could unsee this. Enough with the tacky sheer “fashions,” designers!! It’s truly awful. And I agree with TLo, it’s like they’re just messing with us — the top is really pretty and then, scrolldown fug.

  • Bradio311

    Please let “scroll troll” become a thing!
