For most of these wish lists for stars to wear the Fall 2017 RTW collections I have pushed boundaries picking looks from labels that some stars might not have ever worn in the past. But for Fan Bingbing I picked all labels she has worn in the past, because if it ain’t broke don’t fix it. Fan is always one of the best dressed stars in the world of the red carpet and I always get excited when we see her out and about. Since I don’t get a whole lot of tips ahead of Asian red carpets so aside from Cannes, and these random wish lists, I don’t get to feature Mrs. Bingbing all that often. So the following wishes are all things that I think that Fan would be a Fan of. Most of the time when we see Fan out on the red carpet she is giving us full princess glam, but sometimes we see some great edgy looks from her as well. So while Balmain isn’t usually the first brand that I think of when I think of Fan’s style she has worn the label with ease in the past. The Balmain Fall 2017 RTW collection was inspired by 80’s glam rock hair bands and the glam grunge style that they were known for. This beaded and leather dress which features oversized sleeves and an ombre fringe hem would definitely be something that I can picture Fan wearing on a red carpet. While I am not usually a fan of the signature quadruple stack platform pumps that Fan is known for, I know that she will most likely wear them with this look. Fan is the queen of the princess look on the red carpet, and for that I am always down for one of those moments on the red carpet. Usually when we see Fan wearing Elie Saab on a red carpet most of the time it is a couture look (she actually wore a Spring 2017 Couture gown this week) but on occasion we see her break out the ready-to-wear as well. When it comes to the ready to wear looks that Fan chooses to wear on the red carpet, especially when it comes to gowns, she almost always picks looks with couture detailing. This abyss blue Elie Saab Fall 2017 RTW gown that features an off the shoulder neckline, ostrich feathers at the bodice, and a full length skirt fits that bill to perfection. There are really only a few women I want to see wearing this gown on the red carpet and Fan is definitely one of them. Fan’s take on glamour would definitely elevate this look. I know that Fan would not be afraid to add a lot of diamond and sapphire Cartier jewels to this look really turning this into that major 1940’s inspired film nior moment that I know that this gown could be.I watched the Gucci Fall 2017 RTW show and was just breath taken with the whole collection. I have had to look at it several times to really get a full feeling for all the pieces in this collection. Alessandro Michele showed 119 men’s and womenswear looks over the course of just 10 minutes with a 7 minute finale. Each look had a model, and there were so many pieces, embroideries, embellishments, colors, period inspirations, and more that really made for visual overload. I have watched the show and flipped through the pictures on Vogue.com so many times, and I always feel like I find something new each time I look at it. Fan loves something odd and quirky on the red carpet which is why I think that this purple lamé ruffled gown which mixes Marie Antoinette and Studio 54 in a way that only Alessandro Michele could do, would be totally something that Fan would wear on a red carpet. The gown definitely verges on costume territory but I know that Fan would really turn this gown into a major moment, and quite possibly is the only person that could wear this gown and not come across looking like shes wearing a costume. Fan Bingbing may only have worn one Luisa Beccaria look in the past but I have to say that the two are a match made in heaven. Luisa is the Milan based fashion brand that we always know that we will see a collection full of looks fit for a princess. This red and white and pink gown from the labels Fall 2017 RTW collection was just one of many princess gowns that were presented, and the most perfect look for Fan to wear on a red carpet. I think that this gown would be a standout look for Fan. We see her wear black, blue, and white a lot but we don’t see her wearing a whole lot of red and I don’t know why. This gown would look elegant and regal on Fan and I know that she would deliver it as an absolutely gorgeous red carpet moment. Rounding out this list is another brand that we don’t often seen Fan wearing, but I wish we would. As I have now said many times the debut of Fernando Garcia and Laura Kim as the co-creative directors of Oscar de la Renta was absolutely amazing and I want to see every single look from the collection on the red carpet. The collection features many gorgeous looks that I can picture Fan wearing but this strapless Oscar de la Renta Fall 2017 RTW tea length gown which features a fitted bodice, a full skirt, and beaded tendril inspired embellishment throughout is the look that I think that screams Fan the most. Feminine, princess like and dramatic all things that check boxes on the requirements for a Fan Bingbing red carpet moment. My only hope is that if and when Fan wears something from this collection that her favored quadruple stacked pumps are nowhere to be seen.
Which look do you think that Fan is most likely to be a fan of? (Yes I love a terrible pun.) Leave a comment and let me know.
