Chinese actresses Zhang Ziyi and Fan Bingbing arrived in France for the 66th Cannes Film Festival which kicked off yesterday. Invited to be a judge at the film festival for the third time, Ziyi was surrounded by the media as soon as she appeared at the France airport at about 3pm yesterday, creating a chaos.

When the Chinese actress tried to squeeze her way out of the crowd and leave the airport, a tourist accidentally bumped into her and fell down. Ziyi appeared shocked at first, but quickly recovered and helped the lady who was sitting down on the floor in pain. Seemingly affected by the incident, Ziyi refused to be interviewed by the media and hurriedly left the airport with a black face.

Meanwhile, Chinese actress Fan Bingbing who is widely seen as Ziyi’s “rival” arrived at 6pm on the same day. Her manager posted a photo of Bingbing at the France airport and said, “Wait and see tomorrow’s red carpet”.

Forgoing her usual oriental look, Bingbing wore a simple yet elegant custom-made Louis Vuitton gown for the red carpet this year. This is also the first time the brand has created a gown especially for an Asian actress.
