I periodically go through my drafts folder and find posts that I started but never published. Somehow I forgot to share this beautiful editorial from earlier this year. Vogue China tagged along with Gao Yuanyuan as she attended Paris fashion week and Koto Bolofo captured the lovely actress for this pictorial entitled A Dreamer in Paris. The lovely actress is certainly no stranger to dreamy Parisian editorials. Remember when she was traipsing across rooftops in the City of Lights. This one has more of a casual slice of life feel and the black white images are my favorites. Makes me miss Paris now.
I don't really watch Chinese films as much these days so I haven't kept up with what Yuanyuan has been up to. I certainly didn't watch the sequel to Don't Go Breaking My Heart since the first movie was disappointingly derivative and shallow but I did finally get around to the romantic drama But Always which costarred Nicholas Tse a few months ago. While it was awesome that a good part of the film took place in New York City, the plot was ultimately a melodramatic letdown. Ok now I just remembered why I'm not really into Chinese entertainment. For a romance done right, I would recommend A Good Rain Knows, a Chinese/Korean co-production that Yuanyuan starred in alongside Jung Woo Sung. It was gorgeously filmed and emotionally resonating. I also loved her haircut in it!
