Whether X-Men: Days of Future Past proves to be a creative hit (because we know it will be a financial one) or not, we can be grateful to the cinematic franchise for giving us an excuse to obsess over actress Fan Bingbing and her impeccable sense of style.
For the world premiere of X-Men: Days of Future Past at the Jacob Javits Center in New York, Chinese actress Fan Bingbing pulled out all the stops, choosing a dramatic creation from the Georges Chakra Fall 2012 Couture collection befitting a true superhero.
Featuring a classic column silhouette, Fan’s Georges Chakra gown earns its couture credentials in its sleeves.
Gracefully falling the length of the dress to pool at the floor, the sleeves are detailed at the shoulders in layers upon layers of delicately placed feathers, the kind of attention seen only in couture garments.
Premiering Days of Future Past on her home turf of Beijing, China, Fan opted for a Zac Posen gown that was as different in style from her Georges Chakra number as possible, although no less stunning.
From the Zac Posen Fall 2014 Collection, Fan’s strapless dress was another decisive choice for the actress, with its winged neckline reminiscent of many a super heroine costume.
That’s where the comic book comparisons end though, as the remainder of Fan’s dress was classic ballgown featuring a full skirt with a high-low hemline.
