Fan Bingbing to be exact!

29-year-old Chinese actress Fan Bingbing wowed everyone with her unique style at Paris Fashion week last season, but more recently she's been setting the Cannes Film Festival alight with her gorgeous Oriental take on red carpet glamour.

And I for one seriously can't get enough of her insane style. This is how I imagine myself to look in an ideal world - polished, pristine, but still individual and quirky. In reality I seem to be a never-ending mix of Topshop, UO and random vintage cardis/bags.

FBB makes me want to seriously switch it up, ditch the grunge, channel Dita Von Teese and crack out the pencil skirts and red lippy...

Rocking Paris Fashion Week. Loving the details in particular like the shoes, gloves and earrings.

Purple lippy? Aye, go on then. I die! Plus, those shoes again...

Eastern Princess at Cannes... Just perfection.

50s Glam at PFW again. Something very Dita Von Teese/gothic about this. Needless to say I love that!

At Cannes again in Lawrence Hsu’s dragon robe dress. Possibly runner up fav look of hers EVER!

Mint green Oscar de la Renta gown plus coral lips and braided hair? Shouldn't work but it SO does.

The right side of goth - gaga please take note. Especially loving the headpiece and rubber-band arm detailing on the top/dress.

Favourite Look:

Miss Bingbing at the Elie Saab show at PFW wearing a dusky pink, bejeweled wonder by the designer himself.

Every single thing about this is right. The colour is perfect on FBBs gorgeous yellow-toned alabaster skin, and the gorgeous turban + cape combo is fashion forward enough without looking ridiculous. Bingbing manages to both push the envelope and remain demure and elegant at the same time - no mean feat!
The colour pop of terracotta red lips contrasts beautifully and stops the head-to-toe muted tones washing her out. My only tiny gripe would be the brows... I love a bushy eyebrow as much as the next man (maybe even more y'all) but these babies are just too unruly for me. A subtle pluck would make a world of difference I feel. But it's really only a MINUSCULE issue with what is an otherwise outstanding look. 

What do you guys think of Fan Bingbing's style? Agree, disagree??
