Zhang Ziyi in a Carolina Herrera ball gown in Cannes: stunning or terrible?

Here’s a hodge-podge of Cannes photos that I thought you’d enjoy. They’re from various events over the past few days. Let’s start with the current Cannes Girl of the Moment, Zhang Ziyi. Zhang has been everywhere in Cannes so far, and she’s part of the jury for Un Certain Regard. Zhang started out at The Great Gatsby premiere wearing a short, spiky (gross) wig and a pants-ensemble by Christian Dior. I hate the outfit, and I loathe the wig. The short green dress is from the jury photocall, and it’s Giambattista Valli. The black-and-grey Carolina Herrera ball gown is from a premiere last night

Berenice Bejo in Louis Vuitton at the Le Passe photocall today. I’m sorry, but this ensemble looks like a (fug) pair of pajamas.

Freida Pinto in Sanchita at a premiere last night. Bad color for her, I think, but the design is okay.

Sonam Kapoor in Dolce & Gabbana at The Bling ring premiere. I’m sorry, but I hate this.

Liya Kebede in Alberta Ferretti. Doily fug.

Robin Wright at the Cannes premiere of her new film, The Congress. The dress is meh and I really wish she would just grow out her hair a little. She can still keep it short, that’s fine with me, but it’s TOO short.

Fan Bingbing in Elie Saab. Everything this chick wears is SO saccharine.

    I liked Sonam’s outfit, she works it, it is appropriate for this red carpet.

    But I agree with you re: Fan, she really needs to lay off the fairy princess gowns just for one time.

    • MisJes says:

      I really like Sonam’s dress too! It’s cute and gives her a lovely little waist.

    • booboocita says:

      It’s a lovely dress, and she looks beautiful in it — but all the same, I couldn’t help but think of inverted teacups when I saw it.

  2. Arock says:

    Robin wright looks stunning. I’m not a ball gown person so the others are meh or fug- the chicky in the back ground of Frida pintos pic has a great skirt.

  3. V4Real says:

    Zhang Ziyi is so small and adorable. She’s beautiful

  4. c'est la vie says:

    Zhang Ziyi looks good in anything she wears. Beautiful.

    And Robin Wright looks great. I happen to like her shorter hair – she can pull it off.

  5. Lauren says:

    I love Zhang Ziyi. I think she is one of the most beautiful women alive. Also love Liya Kebede and Fredia Pinto. All three ladies are so stunning.

      Ooh! How did you do that?

        You can go to websites and copy and paste the symbols. Or, if your computer has numbers on the right side of the keyboard, you can look up the combination of ALT + the numbers to get certain symbols. I have some I keep on a post it on my desktop to C+P whenever I want to. ❀ ✰ ✰

    Zhang in the Carolina Hererra is very cool. The rest of the dresses are FUG.

    And ditto on Robin Wright Penn’s hair. I am so sick of short hair on women. It is not punk. It is just plain ugly – unless your name is Halle Berry!

    • Blenheim says:

      Ummm…I personally look like a moron with long hair. Not everyone has a face that can pull off long hair.

  8. annabelle says:

    Zhang Ziyi is a forever crush.

    She is PERFECTION in the Carolina Herrera.

    • Faye says:

      Ditto. She is pulling that gown off so hard. She’s my total girl-crush. That being said, I’m so happy the short hair was only a wig.

      The rest of the dresses range from meh to fug.

    • Elle says:

      Agreed, I’m loving that whole look.

  9. CosmicGirl says:

    A thousand times stunning! She can’t go wrong!

  10. Gabby says:

    I agree Robin needs to grow out her hair some but she is so stunning and I think she can pull it off relatively well.

    Really loved her in House of Cards:-)

    • NEENAZEE says:

      Yep… I don’t mind short hair, but her ‘do could definitely be edgier or more stylized. I loved HoC so much that I can overlook the slight matronly vibe I get from her current cut.

      Overall, she looks awesomely sophisticated… not sure if it’s right for the event (given everyone else’s red carpet attire) but I’d love to wear her entire outfit!! And I adore Ziyi in the green GBV. *swoon*

  11. Elle says:

    I don’t know who Liya Kebede is, but I do know that she is not impressed. At all.

    Also, I love Robin Wright’s envelope clutch! And although the wig was unfortunate, I kind of like Zhang Ziyi’s Christian Dior outfit. I like the colors in the top and would have liked it more as a dress, but it seems like she was just trying something different and having fun by switching it up.

  12. ladybert62 says:

    Wow – absolutely every one of those outfits are horrible.

  13. videli says:

    I have pointy-tip pumps fever, and these pictures are not helping – at all. Zhang Ziyi in that green frock looks like the most beautiful wood fairie.

    • Lulu.T.O. says:

      I have to admit I don’t get the pointy toed thing at all. But then I have size 9 feet, so…

    • videli says:

      I bet you’d look great in them! I wear size 6, and the construction of the shoe is actually not that striking in a small size.

  14. Starlight says:

    Robin needs to let her hair grow long again. Short hair does not look good on her.

  15. Reece says:

    Ellie Saab, The Doily dress and Frieda’s dress are the ones I don’t like.

    I love Ziyi’s green dress!

  16. Janet says:

    Zhang Ziyi is a good actress but I can’t stand her. She gives off major bitch vibes to me.

    • Christina says:

      Not sure about her acting skills, but Zhang is certainly stunning. Agree about the bitch vibe though. She is pretty much universally disliked in China – at least according to every Chinese person I’ve ever asked.

  17. DesertPoppy says:

    Zhang Ziyi looks good, she can definitely pull off that dress. I actually like Fan Bingbings dress.

  18. Abby says:

    Zhang looks INCREDIBLE.

  19. Diana says:

    Zhang Ziyi is so beautiful! I love her. Didn’t like that awful wig though,but as soon as she went back to her natural self: gorgeus.

  20. Mims says:

    I loved Robin’s hair in House of Cards… still short, but definitely longer than this. This look isn’t working for me.

  21. dahlianoir says:

    Where’s vidya Balan ? She always wears great indian attires and she’s in the jury !!!

  22. poppy says:

    z is gorgeous and her herrera is truly a modern ball gown. the wig, no. just NO.
    the others are lovely ladies, truly gorgeous, but their attire is sad. wth, those are some of the best “looks” from those designers? smh

  23. Isabella says:

    She looks great!

  24. mia says:

    Love the green dress though the yellow shoes don’t work with it
