Just a couple of Mulans, getting some serious Disney Princess action going on.
Yifei Liu in Elie Saab Couture
It’s not for us to say what would have counted as cliche and whether or not she should have cared about avoiding it, but we like this for checking off almost every box – from princess to movie star to Chinese design motifs – without being too much or too little of any of it. We’re not super in love with the beige color and we feel like the whole thing would’ve benefited from a blue background color, but she looks every inch the Disney movie star she’s supposed to be on this night.
Ming-Na Wen in Mark Zunino Couture
But we’ll be honest: we love this one much more. Both women are working fairly basic gown designs, but this one’s rendered in a much more strikingly beautiful and photogenic textile. We don’t love the asymmetry of the bust design, but the unusual color story, bold print, and richness of the textile are doing all the work to make this look gorgeous. Love the earring choice.
