Fashionable Asians at Cannes Film Festival

OMG so much fashion goodness to share from Cannes. Been collecting and oogling at all the Cannes pics for the past week and I must say, the crown for Most Fashionable Asian at Cannes goes to previously featured Fan Bing Bing! That girl can pull off ANYTHING and look absolutely AMAZING. Most girls would go lesbian for Angelina Jolie, but I'd totally go lezzie for Bing Bing; so we can roll around in her larger than life couture gowns! LOL TMI? ok, let's just get to the pictures then, haha

It must be nice to be friends with an amazing designer like Elie Saab to get offered apleathora of fabulous dresses to every event! Bing Bing did mix it up with two Versace gowns, two Louis Vuitton dresses, Oscar De La Renta and a custom red crane gown by Bo Kewen. Bing Bing proves time and time again that she is the reigning fashion icon of Asia, always choosing the perfect gowns for her body and never over accessorizing to keep the focus on the outfit.

Another gal with a ton of wardrobe changes at Cannes was Tang Wei, there to promote her new film "Wu Xia". Unlike Bing Bing, Tang Wei favored more of the black, white and pink dresses by Valentino, Chanel and Dolce & Gabbana. Of all the designer dresses, I actually preferred the cream halter dress with the grass and butterfly print that she wore to the photoshoot on the yacht; sweet and summery. I don't know why she ruined a nice D&G outfit with fishnet stockings, that was a bad choice =_=

Li Bing Bing was at Cannes to promote "Snow Flower and the Secret Fan" and this girl knows how to wow 'em. The large tulle gown was Georges Chakra Couture, and while I wasn't a fan of the poof, I was really interested in the pattern on the bustier.

Korean actress Sun Mi Song looked chic in a multi layered metallic silver dress for her photocall; I wasn't a fan of her dress for the premiere though, she kind of cheapened the look of it with the sheer coverup. Gong Li is such a diva and I love that her outfit choices are representative of her attitude. She looked fierce in her black Roberto Cavalli dress with an embellished bustier.

Gianna Jun Ji Hyun rocked the red carpet and events in feminine and glamourous looks, starting with a soft pink ruffled dress with a deep v cut. But my favorite of her looks has got to be the black sparkler with a slight train, it was slimming and she just rocked it!

Yuan Li looked fab in a soft lilac gown with crystal embellishments accesorized with a silver glitter clutch

Cecilia Wang and Donnie Yen were promoting "Wu Xia" at Cannes. Cissy wore a ruffled strapless gown to the premiere and a short floral dress to photocall.

Of all the ladies, I think Li Xiao Ran had the most color variety, wearing a different colored gown every day. I wasn't a fan of her biege Elie Saab because the ruching is slightly unflattering and the color just washed her out.
HK Best actress Kara Hui showed up at Cannes in a black strapless gown with tiered ruffles and showed off some legs in a short red dress for the photocall. Who says you can't be forty and fabulous?
Funny woman Sandra Ng got to go to Cannes, thanks to her husband Peter's directorial work in "Wu Xia". She opted for a sparkly sandy dress for the premiere and a sheer Peter Pilotto dress for the morning photocall.
Wendy Deng, the wife of Rupert Murdoch went to Cannes in style wearing a leaf embellished chiffon gown and a chic purple cocktail dress in the evening.
UPDATE: Forgot to add Aishwarya Rai, can't forget our South East Asians! (Thanks Hungover on Fashion for the tip!) Former pageant queen and Bollywood actress looked stunning in a gray floral laced Elie Saab and an attention grabbing white/blue Armani Prive. She tends to go for more subtle and neutral colors, but I would've loved to see her in something more bright like red or coral.
