For me, there are few people whose style I love more than Fan Bingbing's (maybe Lupita Nyong'o or Cate Blanchett...), and she reaffirmed said love by stepping out in two of the most heart-breakingly fabulous outfits ever. The best part? They couldn't be more different: First, she wore head-to-toe Louis Vuitton to their Paris Fashion Week show (it's hard to say what was the best part of the ensemble — the gold-trimmed moto jacket or the red and black briefcase-style purse), then she Fan Bingbing sported pastel laser-cut lace Valentino at a press conference for her film, Ever Since We Love.
Along with her (very) eclectic taste, I think one of the main things I love about her fashion is her willingness to take risks (surprise, surprise — it's certainly something she shares in common with fashionista compatriots Lupita and Cate). After all, you might catch her one day in cutesy separates printed with bunnies, but the next, she might be wearing a white column gown with a feathered cape. Or maybe you saw her totally rocking oversized checkers in the front row at the Louis Vuitton show, but then the next time you see her, she's looking like royalty in Ralph and Russo. Suffice it to say, Ms. Fan can pull off just about anything, be it crimped hair and a moto jacket or Old Hollywood waves and ethereal lace — take a look:

Pretty darn stunning, no? And absolutely spot-on for spring!
Which look did you like better? I'd be hard-pressed to choose; it's like apples and oranges.
