The Chinese-language equivalent to the Oscars, the Golden Horse awards, which took place in Taiwan on Saturday, draws much attention to the A-list stars who strut down the red carpet. Here are some of the ones who attracted the most eyeballs.
Gwei Lun-mei is in one of the night’s best dresses, a dreamy white gown by Elie Saab.
Draped and dripping in gold – is Gong Li paying homage to her other movie with Zhang Yimou, 2006’s Curse Of The Golden Flower? This Ports 1961 gown is flashy, but the film goddess brings it off.
Tang Wei’s dress seems big on her. Did her stylist borrow it by mistake in, er, Ann Hui’s size?
Jiang Qinqin needs help to stay in her dress. Her husband, actor Chen Jianbin, turns a blind eye to the fashion emergency beside him, however.
Zhang Ziyi’s dress is in a dilemma. The top half wants to be at a retro disco party, and the bottom half wants to stay at the ceremony.
Angelina Jolie, see what you have started? Now impressionable young actresses – like Michelle Chen – are sticking their legs out of their gowns as gauchely as you.
Ella Chen, Golden Horse host and S.H.E singer, deserves a prize for not doing a Jolie pose.
Sylvia Chang’s uniform at awards shows is a quiet, sexy black dress. This one, with lace webs at the top and on the sides, has a sci-fi feel. Eccentric, but it does the job.
Rainie Yang really wants to be taken seriously. To earn your respect, she is wearing a dress that puts 30 years on her.
Somehow Tony Yang looks like a villain from a 1980s movie – a villain in a luxurious jacket though.
