HAUTE MUSE: FAN BINGBING

June 18, 2015

Fan Bingbing. Iconic Chinese actress, street style star, and red carpet favorite. Her fame in China has had her landing a spot in the top 10 of Forbes 100 China for almost 10 years. Many may not be familiar with her foreign film works, but she is the equivalent of Chinese royalty. She most recently topped our looks from the Met Gala for wearing an emerald green cape and gold sequined gown. Bingbing is more than just a popular celebrity. Her presence at fashion weeks, most notably in Paris, catapulted her status in the fashion world after many unique and risky ensembles. Our favorite part: her constant cutting-edge hair styles, from ultra retro fingerwaves to Chinese influenced up-dos. She is not only constantly reinventing her hair, but also her fashion. Through these recreations she incorporates eras from the past along with classic Chinese garments. Compared to other figures famed for their sense of style, Fan Bingbing has one of the more regal wardrobes, legitimizing her title as Louis Vuitton’s Brand Ambassador. As Vanity Fair put it, her style is “Dita Von Teese’s high-gloss pinup doll [meets] Lady Gaga’s demented artiste”.
