Mulan Star Liu Yifei Shines In Her Elie Saab Gown For The Mulan Premiere
The actress rocked the red carpet in her custom, phoenix-inspired couture gown
Liu Yifei brings our favorite Disney character to life in a live-action retelling of Mulan. Thousands have competed for the role but Liu Yifei won it through her skills in acting and martial arts. The role requires a certain duality—that of vulnerability and grace coupled with the strength and gravitas of a warrior—attributes that the Chinese-American actress has in spades.
During Mulan's Hollywood premiere, Lie Yifei made a grand entrance wearing an Elie Saab golden phoenix-inspired couture gown, which could be traced to his Fall/Winter 2019 couture collection. It features a built-in corset, handwoven embroidery, impeccable beadwork, and an exaggerated train.
Set to premiere on March 25, 2020 in cinemas nationwide, Niki Caro's Mulan tells the Disney princess story we all grew up with. Starring modern femme fatale, 2020 Mulan needs no prince charming and is destined to save China by her own will. A must-see film for young girls and girls at heart.
