Whether she's attending an international film festival, press conference, or Fashion Week, Chinese actress/singer Fan Bingbing is always taking sartorial risks while somehow never missing her mark. Ranked in the Top 10 of Forbes China Celebrity 100 for the past 2 years, she's super famous in her homeland—she's even a principal of a school she started there! Here, we present the visual argument that she's basically the coolest girl ever.
At the Robin Hood premiere at the Cannes Film Festival in May 2010, this ocean-themed dress she wore is now infamous as it was what first earned her the attention of the international fashion crowd. It's now on display
at Britain's Victoria & Albert Museum.
At the premiere of Chongqing Blues at Cannes in May 2010.
At the opening ceremony of the Cannes Film Festival in May 2011, Fan Bingbing put a rockabilly twist on a boldly patterned gown.

She's wearing a cape with a sequined zebra on it!
Seeing as how this is a Cartier event, there must've been countless beautiful pieces, but Fan Bingbing's snake coiled around her neck was undoubtedly the edgiest.
But she also has the ability to look really sweet. Her bow dress and heart purse should be overkill, but she tempers it with a bouffant.
And she looks wonderful in hats.
She's established herself in this really great position of being able to wear waxy red wigs and not look like a total psycho. She walks that tightrope of fashion forward without being too costume-y.
She's always doing interesting things with her hair.
Delicate die cutting at Cannes.
This frilly white lace number isn't the kind of dress that just anybody can pull off. I mean, imagine Sally Kirkland or Shannon Elizabeth in it. You know? That really says something about the way Fan Bingbing carries herself.
One of the more interesting silhouettes I've seen.
She's always lovely in gowns.
She's always changing it up at press conferences. I'm pretty sure that's Kevin McCarthy's face on her dress, which is so weird. He's a character actor!
The best thing about her is that she's never boring.
