With perennial Cannes Film Festival attendee Fan Bing Bing out of commission, there was a spot for another Asian movie actress to go for broke in wowing the red carpet. The winner was 40-year old C-actress Liu Tao wearing a white gown that was exquisite without coming off bridal or goddessy. The sleek column was broken up with a thigh high slit, cape, and architectural beading around the shoulders and deep v-neck. It was amazing and she looked 110% beautiful on the red carpet. Also present to kick off the next two weeks of events from Asia was fellow C-actress Gong Li, TW-actress and model Hannah Quinlivan, and Korean star Jessica Jung.
