Shu Qi and Scarlett Johansson appear for Moet in Shanghai. Let one hundred wallpapers bloom.

Moët & Chandon is owned by LVMH (Louis Vuitton Moët Hennessy) which owns more luxury brands than one would think possible, including jeweler Bulgari. LVMH China is the engine pulling the company to record sales and profits; Yves Carcelle, the member of the executive committee in charge of fashion and leather goods seems to be permanently attached to the arm Gong Li or Fan Bingbing. When Moët puts on a bash in China they trot out A list celebrities. At least one attendee was a little too impressed with Shu Qi--or perhaps he just discovered that women have breasts. Love the look on her face as she waits for someone to remind the guy that cameras are present.

The ladies seem to be enjoying themselves--which only makes sense as they are both rich, famous, beautiful and talented as well as accomplished actresses who can act delighted when necessary.

Did you hear the one about...

Good thing that someone had a long red ribbon handy

Scarlett Johansson is the face of the Champagne brand.

More images at Sina and CRI. Rueters and CNN have some of the story on LVMH in China.


  1. Shu Qi "talented" and an "accomplished actress"? Have you been on the wacky backy, Edward?

  2. Shu Qi is a good actress when she's given decent material to work with (Three Times, City of Glass, Beijing Rocks).

    Anyway, Ed, your headline had me laughing.

    Has Shu Qi been raiding Karen Mok's leggings closet?

  3. ulaca--I should have written "accomplished film actress" which both of them are as well as successful luxury brand pitchwomen.

    Glenn--I would add "Love Me, Love My Money" to your list. Indeed, it is almost impossible for a film actor to overcome a bad script which are the norm for both Hong Kong and Hollywood.

    Her outfit, with the leggings had a thrown together at the last minute look that worked perfectly. Interesting that she was fronting this event since she is the face of Armani in Asia.
