Black was in season at this year’s red carpet. Starting off the trend was Zhang Yuqi in her flowing, embellished dress cape from the Zuhair Murad 2017 Couture collection. The cape flared out like a ball gown, making it one of the most extravagant looks of the night.

Last year’s Best Actress winner Jessie Li is keeping it youthful and simple in a dress from the Blumarine 2017 Spring/Summer collection. Along with her Tiffany & Co. earrings and Sergio Rossi heels, Jessie looked like she was stepping down from an angel’s lair.

The Best Supporting Actress nominee was the talk of the carpet last year when she showed off her figure in a revealing black gown. This year, the Cold War 2 <寒戰II> actress wrapped up a bit more with a sheer Louis Vuitton dress, making it one of the most interesting looks at the red carpet.

Zhao Wei played safe with her Dice Kayek dress from the Autumn/Winter collection, which appears to be more suitable for warmer weather, but the Best Film from Mainland and Taiwan presenter looks no less graceful and refined.
