Yifei Liu

Yifei Liu was the embodiment of a real-life Disney princess at the Mulan premiere on Monday night.

The Chinese actress takes on the titular role in director Niki Caro's upcoming live-action remake of the 1998 animated classic of the same name, with the film following a young maiden who disguises herself as a male warrior in order to save her father.

Stepping out at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles for the feature's debut, Liu dazzled in a strapless gold ballgown with a long train and delicate embroidery from Elie Saab.

She accessorised the look with Chaumet jewellery, and had her hair styled into tumbling waves.

Ming-Na Wen, who voiced Mulan in the original movie, also opted for a dramatic ballgown for the night. The star chose a stunning number made from blue and gold fabric by Mark Zunino and topped off the ensemble with a touch of light blue eyeshadow on her eyelids and sparkly drop earrings.

Elsewhere, Liu's co-star Donnie Yen looked handsome in a classic tuxedo, Jet Li rocked a black suit, Yoson An opted for an Ermenegildo Zegna outfit, and Jason Scott Lee chose a classic navy blue suit.

And Christina Aguilera certainly made a splash in a pink and red outfit from Galia Lahav. The singer, who has recorded an updated version of the song Reflection for the Mulan soundtrack as well as new tune Loyal Brave True, topped off her look by adding pink streaks through her platinum blonde updo.

Moana star Auli'i Cravalho opted for the pink theme too, selecting an Azzi & Osta dress, while Lana Condor rocked a blue jumpsuit with gold sequin detailing from Antonio Berardi.

Among the other celebrities showing their support for the film included Chrissy Metz, Jaimie Alexander, Alexis Knapp, Kimora Lee Simmons, and Jordin Sparks.
