Eye Candy : Yao Chen for Self

September 1, 2014
Yao Chen, Yao Chen Self

This Self China editorial with Yao Chen is fabulous not only because the photos are lovely but because her exuberant personality really shines through. The award winning actress was ranked 83rd among the world's most influential women by Forbes earlier this year. That may have something to do with her status as the most followed celebrity on Weibo (China's version of Twitter) with over 72 million fans. She uses the platform to update her fans on her work as well as to raise awareness about social issues. Notably she has addressed the topics of media censorship and air pollution in China. I thought she was quite charming in Color Me Love, a romantic comedy that has drawn comparisons to The Devil Wears Prada. And I admire Yao Chen even more for how she's using her considerable influence on social media to try to make a positive impact considering some celebrities only know how to post half naked pics of themselves for attention. And oh yeah her hair is seriously gorgeous too!

  2. Hi Rowena! Yao Chen is utterly gorgeous in this editorial, the styling and the make up are fab and just adore her hair! The first pic is my fav, totally love the lipstick she is wearing!:) Have seen that trailer and she is so good, the movie remined me of the Chinese version of that one indeed. And I like her personalitly, the way she uses socials is remarkable. Have a wonderful Sept Rowena, many hugs! xo

  4. Hmmm, for some reason I'm not a fan of this as much as some of the other editorials you post and talk about! I don't know what it is; I think it might be that Chanel belt that is just way too bling for me. Haha. I've nominated you for the Sisterhood of the world bloggers award by the way; would love to know your answers! Rosemary x
