Bo Kewen (Bu Kewen) aka Chris Bu

Who is Bo Kewen, or Bu Kewen, the stylist behind Fan Bingbing's red crane/white crane gown seen at the Cannes Opening Ceremony?

Well, turns out, regularly readers will have seen his handiwork behind this Zhang Jingchu GQ pictorial
I think I could do this! :D

And remember the June Esquire featuring Chen Man's photographs of Fan Bingbing as Bruce Lee, Che Guevara, et al? Yep, Bo Kewen.

From last year's Cannes Closing Ceremony
Obi Wan Kenobi, you're my only hope!

FBB looks pretty tough in that photo for My Way. I don't think I've heard about this film yet. Did you post anything about it that I missed?

I was looking for info about My Way and found some early pics of FBB at HanCinema.net. They must be pre-Bu Kewen, because -- as pretty as she is -- she looks like any other fresh-faced starlet. Now I have a better sense of exactly how much Bu Kewen has helped create the unique style that has put FBB in the international spotlight.

P.S. Some of the pictures in this post are MIA

Thanks, fixed the pics, and added a tag for My Way. That's the film she's promoting at Cannes.

I posted a few brief links to it previously. It's a Sino-Korean co-production co-starring
Jang Dong-Gun and Joe Odagiri.

Don't know much about it: The film will tell a story of a Korean solider who was recruited by the Japanese army to fight for the Germans during World War II. Fan stars as a Chinese woman who falls in love with the Korean solider after meeting him in China.
