Eye Candy : Li Bing Bing for Harper's Bazaar


Li Bing Bing goes retro glam in this Olympic themed editorial photographed by Feng Hai in London for Harper's Bazaar China. The Snow Flower and the Secret Fan actress who is currently a jury member at the Shanghai International Film Festival will be making a return to London this summer where she is representing China in the torchbearer relay at the Olympics and also serving as an ambassador for Chinese cultural exchange. She hits the screens this fall as Ada Wong in Resident Evil: Retribution. I'd previously expressed my opinion on this. While I'm hardly enthused about the films since they center around a character who isn't even in the games which I'm a big fan of, I am totally anticipating the release of the next Resident Evil game in October. The trailer looks fantastic.

This editorial is very 40s which is nice. I really like the cover dress and the one that is beaded in the front.

I haven't seen any Resident Evil movies or played the games but I totally get your frustration with them doing totally different things. They should say the movies are "inspired by" Resident Evil so they don't get anyone's hopes up. Then again, maybe they will add her to future games. :)

I was just chatting it up with Chic and Cheap living regarding where to find Asian editorials without having to subscribe to the foreign magazine! I can definitely feel the vintage vibe, and Bing Bing looks gorgeous!

I like how her hair and makeup are done, looks like blast from the past. The first bright yelliw gown must be my favorite. Have a great week Rowena, hope you are doing great.

she is absolutely beautiful, the backdrop looks like Kew Gardens, which is gorgeous!

Love her gowns.... I am also anticipating the release of Res-Evil as well, let's see if it's any good!

Darling, I woke up to rain today - but at least it's a heck of a lot cooler than Greece!

Beautiful editorial. I love that cover photo. I guess it's the yellow dress as I'm missing the sun ;-)

Ashley K said...

The color of the yellow dress she has on are so pretty!

Sam said...

The first yellow dress just stole my heart, and with that pretty vintage hair and styling, even more so. The colour is beautiful on her. Also love the mint gown and the photos with the red one, it almost looks like the skirt is alight with flames! happy Weekend sweetie

I love this retro/vintage look on her! I agree with everyone, the yellow dress image on the cover is gorgeous. She's mighty brave to rock those thick eyebrows but she makes it work! I could never pull those off, hehe.

last dress i adore, Li Bing Bing has this kind of old school classic yet sporty elegance in the editorial and i love the pose on the cover, a bit different than the overused one arm sticking out and profile view of the upper body on American magazines..
