    Lupita really needs to STOP showing her chest….its too bony and unattractive. She should dress to accentuate the positives: her pretty face and gorgeous legs. The color of the dress looked great on her skin but the style drowned her figure….too busy.

    Fan bing bing did it for me…..gorgeous dress and makeup….looked beautiful from head to yoe

      I concur. The chest is unflattering, but the dress and hair are both beautiful, make up isn’t so cute

    bellanaija pls put more pictures of fan bing bing’s gown so people can get a better look. her gown is a work of art. so different and dramatic and visually stunning.

    fan bing bing is the queen of the cannes film festival . from 2010 to date her cannes redcarpet gowns have been divine.

    asain actresses have magnificent fashion style. they dress to kill.

    nigerian actresses pls step up ur fashion game. all of u should stop dressing like kim kardashian.

    I am not falling for the over hype around lupita. yes she know how to wear and sell a gown but the over hype is too much. the gown is basic it is lupita that is bringing the gown to life. the ear rings are too much .

    I love the colour tho and the deep v neck line. she doesn’t have big fake bulging breasts, SO WHAT!!. its a crime for flat chested girls to show their cleavage abi.

    Lusitania needs to stop wearing plunging necklines. Other than that, she is beautiful.

    Sorry,Lupita. Autocorrect demons at work.

    Yasss Ms Lupita in Gucci! Nice to see that classic lanvin silhouette again on Ms miller. my eternal love for Julianne Moore ❤️❤️. Asian movies must be paying heavy, because since Fan bing bing stepped on my radar in 2011 she has been seen in a lot of couture outfits, and she seems like the type of woman who buys her couture outfits.

    I love lupita’s outfit. The green is just too gorgeous and her hair, jewellery and make up r very on point. Maybe might have been nicer if the top was more fitted, don’t like outfits that bare the chest like that generally but she carried it well

    Thank God, @ least none of this naked outfits with stones to barely hide the private parts Kim K, Beyoncé, n JLo were doing. Disappointed was an understatement, these ones look more classy
