Zhou Xun does summer Davos; Karen Mok rides a horse; Fan Bingbing gets clay action figures

It's Fan Bingbing's 30th birthday! Don't worry if you forgot to send a card--the publicity department has everyone covered with these figurines. Thirteen of them showing FBB in each of the past thirteen years. Xinhua has all the details; Google provides a surprisingly readable translation.

Karen Mok, due to be wed in Italy next month, published some pictures taken in March in South Africa. They are described as "romantic wedding pictures" in all the media I have seen. Xinhua notes either that the horse was a "white as a sheep" or "tame as a sheep".

Zhu Xun addressed the annual meeting of the World Economic Forum New Champions, known as Summer Davos held in Dalian, PRC. The World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland held in January in a remote Alpine ski resort has become increasingly irrelevant to its stated mission of bringing knowledgeable experts alongside key business and political players for formal and informal discussions since it has become overrun with self-important NGOs and slumming celebrities. Zhu Xun was only the second actress invited to address the WEF. The first was Angelina Zhu Li. If you want to read her speech (and who wouldn't) F-paper has it. Some pictures:
