Closing Red Carpet at Golden Rooster Awards
The awards have been handed out at the Mainland's answer to the Academy Awards and some of our favorites hit the red carpet; their outfits ranged from demure to stripperific.
Vicki Zhao Wei was the image ambassador this year. She was the MC for the awards themselves, introducing the presenters and other performers plus filming an underwater dance with a couple of male dancers--but more on that later. She looked elegant in a black dress with an art deco texture. She may not have realized how transparent it became when the camera flashes hit it.
Zhou Weitong and her stylist knew exactly how this already transparent with strategically placed patches dress would look--this isn't the first time she has worn a variation of it. One of the oddities of Google automatic translation from Chinese to English is that this becomes a "clairvoyant" dress. Which it might be.
The Twins stood out in bright (almost) primary colors.
The unmistakable Queen of Swords, Cheng Pei Pei, is on the left.
Three looks on actresses emphasizing their cleavage. First is Gong Xinliang in an outfit that falls between grotesque and really stupid. She leads with her strength but doesn't look happy about it.
Li Yifei in a classic look that has been a favorite red carpet look for busty women for decades.
Chrissie Chow keeps it simple with a plunging neckline. Hu Ge serves as her arm candy and looks quite smug about it.
Huang Lu in a classic Empire waist dress; the color would work almost anywhere except on a red carpet where it clashed badly. She is accompanied by Ye Shanhao.
Li Ai in a black chiffon-y dress and ballet flats--the other side of the stripper platforms that show up occasionally.
Vivian Hsu in a sequined flapper dress and oddly colored shoes. She manages to look great all the time wearing just about anything.
Lots more at Ifeng and Sohu.
