Fashion: Favorite looks of day 1

It's time to take a look at Day 1 recap, first off is my favorite ensemble, meaning the whole look was perfection, and this goes to Eva Longoria-Parker in Pucci. She wore a cream one-sleeve off the shoulder gown with a monster, but graceful, ruffled train. This woman is tiny, but for some reason, much like Lea Michelle recently, they can do big and long gowns. Instead of being drowned in the train of fabric and ruffles, since the ruffles are relatively small, they complimented Longoria-Parker's figure. And I love the slanted neckline, thank god the shoulder is not parrallel with the bustline, along with the train, this elongated her silhouette and forms a line from the bottom of the train to the the top of the shouler thus making her seem taller and more lean. The look was perfected with coral drop earrings and a crystal embellished clutch. Add the sleek, loosely pulled back hair and we got ourselves a winner for day 1.

Next is the dress that wowed me the most, Chinese actress Fan Bing Bing. I know about her quite well, since I'm fobby and read Chinese publications, she's famous for flashy designer styles, but we can't hold that against her, big brands are currently dominating the Chinese market, so the clothes are almost being forced on her, okay, maybe not forced. But this one, again, a padded one-shoulder modern gown , contrasted with traditional Chinese Emporer yellow dragon print with crashing waves at the train, is a knock out! Modern silhouette, traditaional print with a twist, is the perfect choice for her. Chinese constantly feel the need to be modernized but at the same time remind people of the 5000 years of civilization that we have, and I think this is a good combination. A lot of people hated this, but I think this is stunning, it stands out, and the color looks great both on her and on the red-carpet.
