Fashionable Asians at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival

For the two past weeks I have been following the news and image feeds for all the celebs that attended the Cannes Film Festival and lucky for us Cannes regular Fan Bing Bing (who never fails to impress on international red carpets) brought her A-Game (aka her incredible style) to the festival.
There is never a Cannes event where Fan Bing Bing doesn't wear something from her designer friend Elie Saab.  Here she is in a Elie Saab Spring 2012 Couture dress with a matching cape
 The Mother of Fashion Reinvention, channeled her inner dynasty goddess by showing up in an embroidered Christopher Bu gown
 Frieda Pinto failed to impress in this bubblegum pink Atelier Versace featuring a poofy peplum and embellished bodice
Freida's second Atelier Versace dress managed to gain more attention with its bright chartreuse color and futuristic cut 
Former LOST star Kim Yun Jin glowed in this beaded strapless Zuhair Murad dress
Not to be outdone by the other Bing Bing - Li Bing Bing had her very own princess moment in this yellow chiffon gown
This black strapless dress was my favorite of all three of Bing Bing's Cannes looks
For her 3rd red carpet appearance, Bing Bing went with a darker look in this forest green Gucci dress. Bing Bing finished this look with a dark red lipcolor and slicked back hair
Victoria's Secret model Liu Wen graced the red carpet in this deep-v Roberto Cavalli dress
TiangJia Chen silver phoenix dress was kind of epic with the fringed wings and tail, no accessories necessary, just let the dress do all the talking.. or flying in this case  
 Yang Mi opted for this canary yellow Elie Saab and a Bally Palace clutch, not her best look as it was shapeless and you guys know how I feel about yellows wearing yellow (it doesn't look good on us)
For her second Cannes outfit Yang Mi channeled her inner Audrey with the blunt bangs and black dress
Zhou Xun is the ultimate Chanel ambassador as she shows up in yet another Chanel dress.

Fashionable Asians at the 2012 Met Gala

Last night was the 2012 Met Gala held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.  Major celebrities and models joined fashion designers in their red carpet best and lucky for us we got to see a couple of well known Asians there as well! Check 'em out!
Chinese model Liu Wen in Michael Kors was by far my favorite look at the Met Gala.  The sparkly red dress contrasted nicely against her skin and the fit was just made for her.
Vera Wang in none other than Vera Wang, the dress looks great, just wish her arms did too..
 Vera Wang and Wendy Deng Murdoch who was also wearing Vera Wang, looked the best I've ever seen her at a red carpet event. Asian women know how to work those red gowns, why else do you think Chinese wedding dresses are red? Cause we look Ah-mazing in them!
Alexa Chung wore Marc Jacobs, not my favorite look since she didn't pair the leather and floral dress with the matching floral blouse that was shown on the runway.  
 Chanel Iman in Tom Ford, she's only a quarter Asian but I still like to include her cause she looked quite fab last night in this sheer black and white dress.
The Talk host Julie Chen made an appearance in this shiny gray v-neck frock.
