Is there anyone out there as fabulously stylish as Fan Bingbing? She's famous for consistently crushing it at the Cannes Film Festival (especially this year, where she stunned in everything from fairy princess Marchesa to queenly Ralph & Russo), and on top of that, she basically won the Met Gala, in a caped and sequined number by Christopher Bu. Plus, the international star has major range — she can wear everything from crimped hair with head-to-toe Louis Vuitton to soft-focus Valentino with equal aplomb. That said, out of all the myriad showstopping dresses she's pulled off in the past year, she's worn quite a lot of one brand in particular: Ralph & Russo Couture.
As mentioned above, she wore the designer to devastating effect at Cannes this year (giving fellow style genius Aishwarya Rai a serious run for her money), and she's also worn the intricate, classic gowns from the line at countless film premieres, photo calls, and award shows. So, given the sheer number of times she's worked the red carpet in the brand, I thought a quick ranking was in order. Luckily for us, there are categorically no losers on this list, because every single gown she's ever worn ever is basically glamour made corporeal. In other words? It's not worst to best, it's amazing to really, really amazing.

Here's hoping we get a lot more of Fan Bingbing x Ralph & Russo Couture (and Christopher Bu, and Louis Vuitton, and Valentino, of course) in the months to come!
