the world's fourth highest-paid actress
Fan Bingbing, the world's fourth highest-paid actress with a wardrobe to match
It was no real surprise that Jennifer Lawrence is the world’s highest-paid actress – after all, she’s only 25 and already has one Oscar and three nominations under her belt, plus a lucrative Dior contract and legions of fans.
But what was a surprise was the lady sitting at number four on Forbes’ list; Fan Bingbing.
Fan has been on our radar for a number of years, mainly thanks to her annual appearances on the Cannes Film Festival red carpet. She always looks spectacular, immaculate and frankly puts Hollywood’s finest to shame (sorry JLaw). But, somewhat shamefully, we had no idea that she’s kind of a big deal in the acting world.
She’s the biggest film star in China, which is why banked £13.4 million last year – more than Angelina Jolie, Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon. If you’d like to know more about her, head this way.
But back to the clothes. She wears haute couture with the same ease that we wear Zara, is loved by Valentino and Louis Vuitton and has a red carpet wardrobe that’s straight from the pages of fairy tale book.
She favours Elie Saab, the master of sparkling, ethereal, dreamy gowns, and Ralph & Russo, the only British couture house, who often make custom pieces for her.
She attended the opening ceremony of this year’s Cannes Film Festival in possibly the brand's most spectacular creation yet. "The piece we created for Fan Bingbing was a custom haute couture gown designed especially for her and was inspired by a beautiful piece of 18th Century Chinese art," designer Tamara Ralph told The Telegraph. "It took 30 highly-skilled artisans and couturiers over 1,000 hours to make and featured thousands of meters of silk thread within the embroidery - it really was a spectacular piece."
The best part? That’s just one of the many fantasy gowns Fan has given us the joy of seeing her wear. In case you hadn't noticed, we're kind of a fan of Fan...
