Published annually by Forbes which ranks the influence of Chinese celebrities based on income, search ranking, and exposure in fashion, news, and television, this is your 2017 list. I’m actually really surprised to see Li Ying ranked 4th on the list since she hasn’t really dipped her feet much in the fashion world yet, which is where the majority of the big and easy money comes from. She is finally invited to Paris Fashion Week this year as a Dior guest (should be heading over there on the 26th). If you notice, Li Ying has branched out further from the acting world this year, accepting various endorsement contracts and being on more magazine covers, which explains why she made a splash on the list.
And congratulations to Fan Bing Bing for topping the list once again this year and it’s her fourth consecutive time since 2013.
PEACHHHHHHH!! Lolol. Your couple is front news! hee! Everyone should love this post since it’s all about pretty and kindness! I forgot who said this quote, but doing charity only has a beginning, it never ends. There was no crazy fashion tonight, everyone looks good with what they chose and for once I’m a happy camper with Li Ying’s stylist (I’m more picky with her! xD)
I was preparing for bed until I saw the onslaught of updates on news sites. Turns out it’s Qixi Festival aka Chinese Valentine’s Day! Drama productions release new stills to celebrate the annual meeting of two (tragic) lovers, the tale of Zhi Nu and Niu Lang’s forbidden love as the cowherd and weaver girl in Chinese mythology. I’m sure we have at least watched one adaptation of this story.
You might drown in the stills so I focus mostly on ancient dramas….for now. Lol.
A lot of new adaptations of older series, hold on to your heart! I have watched two versions of this novel before but lord, I didn’t know they have so many adaptations, dated back to 1977. Juedai Shuangjiao or Two Peerless Heroes is a wuxia novel written by Gu Long, detailing a story about a pair of twin brothers separated at birth and how they become good friends by wandering Jianghu together. However, their fate is to fight each other to the death according to one evil woman.
Cannes Film Festival 2017 is currently taking place in France, from May 17th to May 28th, a week-long event to celebrate and preview films of all genre from various parts of the world. From China this year, we have two films in the mix, under different categories. I rarely do watch movies so maybe one of our readers could shed some lights on these two undiscovered gems. One is director Li Rui Jun’s Walking Past the Future and the other being a short film A Gentle Night directed by Qiu Yang.
Happy Mother’s Day everyone! I don’t think we need a reminder to appreciate our moms because such unconditional and selfless love can only stem from our parents. It always amazes how much my mom has accomplished so far despite being illiterate (she only recognizes her children’s names) and very poor for many years. She’s my star, my love, and my inspiration. Always and Forever.
A compilation of Chinese celebrities with their lovely mothers or some fans would say… their mother-in-laws (hehe)!
