China's top actress, who stars in the upcoming "X-Men: Days of Future Past," was named International Artist of the Year.
Chinese actress Fan Bingbing didn't let wet weather dampen
her spirits at a cocktail party in her honor hosted by The Hollywood Reporter, Jimmy Choo and Mouton Cadet at the Martinez hotel, where the star and global style icon was presented with THR's first ever International Artist of the Year award. The event, originally planned for the Mouton Cadet Wine Bar atop the Palais des Festivals, was moved indoors due to the heavy rain that plagued
Cannes all of Saturday.
The private event, co-hosted by THR editorial director Janice Min, publisher Lynne Segall and CEO Pierre Denis of Jimmy Choo, honored Fan, who is slated
to co-star in Bryan Singer's X Men: Days of Future Past and Skiptrace with Jackie Chan, with the award, which recognizes a rising global celebrity whose work has the power to affect entertainment around the world.
Fan, who has emerged as a leading international fashion icon as her global acting career has exploded, wore a stunning
Valentino gown to the event, telling THR, "I feel like Cinderella tonight."
"It's every girl's dream to wear these designer clothes," she added. "But even though I love fashion, the most important thing to me is my acting career."
