With every live-action remake of a Disney classic, the world gets another real-life princess. After Lily James and Naomi Scott, this time it was Liu Yifei, the star of Disney’s upcoming Mulan, that dazzled on the red carpet with her fashion choices. Wearing a magnificent dress from Elie Saab’s Autumn 2019 couture collection, the actress stole the show at the premiere of the movie in Los Angeles.
Heavily embroidered in beadwork and sequins, the gold brocade gown features a rising phoenix motif that echoes both Liu’s Chinese heritage and the setting of the movie. A popular film star in Asia, Liu’s first foray into Hollywood sees her playing the titular character of the beloved Disney animated classic. The actress kept her make-up and jewellery simple to complement the spectacular dress, opting for understated diamond earrings with her hair styled in soft waves.
Liu’s co-stars and fellow celebrities also attended the premiere in equally glamorous looks; famous faces included Christina Aguilera, Lana Condor and Chrissy Metz. The main event, however, was definitely Liu Yifei’s magical sense of style.
