Mulan Star Liu Yifei Wore the Most Glamorous Ballgown to Her Film's Premiere
The movie got rave reviews as well.
Disney’s live-action Mulan remake premiered on Monday evening to glowing (Twitter) reviews. But the film wasn’t the only aspect of the evening to receive acclaim.
Mulan’s heroine, actress Liu Yifei, arrived at the Dolby Theatre in an Elie Saab gown befitting an IRL Disney princess. The glittering strapless dress, which bore golden embroidery down the bodice and skirt, swept across the red carpet with a voluminous and lengthy train.
Yifei kept the rest of her look simple, opting for soft, natural-looking makeup, her dark locks worn in loose waves swept over her right shoulder.
Like Cinderella with her mice or Sleeping Beauty with her fairy godmothers, Yifei’s dazzling entrance wasn’t without a little help from her friends (or, well, publicists, probably).
Oh, and if you thought that was Yifei’s only glittering gold gown of the evening, well, surprise! The Mulan star later changed into a slinky sequined column gown and a sheer cape.
