Fan Bing Bing’s Best Red Carpet Looks of 2015

Feature: While Red Carpet fashions are not meant to be worn by the typical girl, a hint of glamour an fashion eye in our favorite stars can never hurt. Red Carpet posts can showcase anything from a range of styles from different celebrities for a single event or a summation of red carpet styles from a single celebrity. While this type of post is more for editorial purposes, everyday fashion can always be inspired from these looks, whether it’s based on style, cutting, patterns, or prints.

When it comes to red carpet and designer label fashion sponsorships, no one has it better than one of the China’s top actresses, Fan Bing Bing (范冰冰). The gowns that she appears in at film festivals, TV and film promotions can be best described as one-of-a-kind, elegant, and polished with an regal air. As one of China’s top paid actresses, there is no surprise that her fashion choices reflects her net worth.

Now let’s take a look at her best red carpet moments of 2015!

Most Ancient China

The off-the-shoulder aspect aside, the silhouette of this gown is one of the most extravagant you’ll see Fan in this year. Of course, she will save this for the Cannes Film Festival. If you watch the Chinese palatial dramas that she stars in, you’ll see that this style (and especially the tail of the dress) is reminisce of what they were on those shows. However, given that this gown still has to be snapped by hundreds of reporters, she had to showcase her hourglass figure. Having her hair pulled up in an elegant and sleek bun was the perfect way to show off her sexy shoulders.

Most Bohemian

Designer: Marchesa

The chiffon makes the dress all that carefree and flowy, but clearly you can tell that the Chinese star has taken hours to pull together this look! Her flower headband and the string of florals that slid down her chest definitely made me feel that this gown was Bohemian-inspired. Finally, her thick-rimmed eyes against her seemingly perfect skin makes her look like an innocent porcelain doll.

Most Commanding


Event: Promotion for Lady of the Dynasty
Designer: Ralph and Russo Couture

In this Ralph and Russo gown, Fan showed off her hourglass figure at its finest. Adding extra power to her outfit, it can’t be a coincidence that the dress had a cape as she was promoting for her new drama, Lady of the Dynasty.

Most Girly


Event: Chopard Party
Designer: Ralph and Russo Couture

It’s rare to see Fan in a more casual side braid, but this hair style was an appropriate match for her off-the-shoulder A-line dress. The braid and silhouette actually made her look younger and more fun. Of course, her pumps would always match her dress and this time she opted for dazzling silver!

Most Elegant


Event: 2015 BAZAAR
Designer: Elie Saab Fall 2015

Lace is something that you’ll see over and over again in Fan’s 2015 red carpet looks, but the V-neckline is something she doesn’t opt for as often as crew or off-the-shoulder necklines. She looks super elegant in her Elie Saab gown, with just the right amount of poof below her waist. I love the fact that she goes for an updo when she wears more elegant gowns.

Most Dark


Event: Chopard
Designer: George Cakra

Black is the most classic of it all. This off-the-shoulder gown seems to have come straight out of the Victorian age. Her hair pulled back in a wet and sleek bun also gives this look more authority than femininity.

Most Mysterious


Event: TV Drama Awards
Designer: Reem Acra Spring 2016

Not every woman can carry this dress in it’s ever-changing color and texture without looking old and out of place. Similar to most of Fan’s sponsored fashion pieces, this dress matches her usual style of being classic, mature, and ladylike. The lavender lace not only gives the dress femininity but also mystery.

Most Innocent


Event: Zhang Shuai 2016 Spring/Summer Collection & Haute Couture
Designer: Zhang Shuai

Perhaps it has to do with the Asian designer and spirit, but here’s another one of my favorite pieces that seems to be inspired by Qing attire. This semi-sheer white dress that hits right at the ankle can be described in three words: feminine, classic, and polished. What’s needed to match this dress is a pair of 5-inch pumps to level out the dress.

Most Relaxed

Another one of Fan’s more casual red carpet pieces, she looks refreshing in her sectioned white dress with printed palm trees. The trees almost gives off a Californian vibe. Classic white pointy pumps also seem to the the safe and comfortable choice to go with.

Most Casual

Designer: Ulyana Sergeenk

Instead of showing off her hourglass figure, this drapey piece resembles a printed silk robe. While I love the pastel blue and pinks of this dress, I’d admit the silhouette is a bit weird for me. Due to her tall figure, she carries the dress well despite its lack of shape. However, I would opt for white heels instead of black, which blends better with the pastels.

Most Regal


Event: Press Conference for Lady of the Dynasty
Designer: Alberta Ferretti

Eluding a blend of childlike innocence in the A-line silhouette and elegance in this gold embellished chiffon dress, Fan inspires a regal air. Her peep-toe nude pumps almost resemble those Manchu horse-hoof shoes that palatial ladies wore back in the Qing Dynasty days. Recently, I have a thing for crew necklines and chiffon sleeves that wraps right at the wrist.

Most Playful


Event: Film Promotion for Ever Since We Love
Designer: Zhang Shuai

While this semi-casual piece isn’t necessarily garner “film festival” level red carpet status, it definitely has it’s own uniqueness. Fan shows that she also has a fun side by pairing a white crop top with a pleated, yellow and aqua A-line skirt. Paired with the conservative outfit are some classic pointy-toed pumps of a similar aqua shade. Despite the red lip, Fan looks ultra girly and childlike.
