I love gorgeous stars and throwback fashion, and when the two are combined together it’s too pretty not to share. The Chinese actresses are still hewing closer to retaining their own individuality and unique beauty rather than converging towards a homogenized norm that is happening too much in K-ent, and with the different types comes more creativity in pictorials.
I recently came across a dazzling collection of recent magazine shoots featuring four of China’s most well-known actresses, in a similar old-school throwback arrangement in outfits and layout. Crystal Liu, Li Bing Bing, Sun Li, and Angelebaby are each transformed into the varying ideals of Chinese period beauty, with some getting a smidge of a modern twist. It reminds me of the breathtaking pictorial Lee Young Ae did last year when she donned modern interpretations of the Korean hanbok.
