Li Bingbing went to Los Angeles for the 2012 Academy Awards and the Independent Spirit Awards (ISA). She hit a few photo events, walked some red carpets and gave an award to Guillaume Schiffman the cinematographer on "The Artist", the movie that won just about everything during the past couple of weeks. She picked up a $400,000 purse--since the expensive stuff like jewelry, couture gowns and crazy handbags are props they are returned at the end of the evening so she probably doesn't get to keep it even though according to a press release from the designer it has "Diamond Script Executed in Lana J. Marks Penmanship: "Li Bingbing".
She killed at the Independent Spirit Awards in a Gucci gown, Kelly green on top, black and white skirt with appliqued tassel prints.
With Giovanni Ribisi (who has enough indy/hipster cred for ten men but who is an excellent actor anyway) announcing the cinematography award at ISA.
Doing her time in the press scrum, giving something quotable to the Associated Press.
Not sure about Li Bingbing's outfit at the Women In Film Pre-Oscar Cocktail Party. Looks like a tailored bowling shirt with a spread collar over a garment that is beyond my ability to describe. I can tell it has pockets, though.
On to the main event where Li Bingbing looked great in a textured Georges Chakra Couture strapless gown along with the super-expensive clutch. Sheer sinuous panels made it more interesting than the usual (and safe) ball gown look.
On the red carpet with BFF producer Wendi Deng Murdoch.
Deng Murdoch's earrings are worth a closer look.
